Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday, so I wanted to create a really special centerpiece for our table this year. At first I thought “cornucopia?” but then I decided those were pretty snore-nucopia (don’t you agree?). Then I starting thinking about Japanese kaiseki ryouri, where chefs present edible arrangements (the kind that aren’t dipped in chocolate) as tiny treasures and brainstorming about autumn in the city and it hit me! The High Line! Sorry CP, but the High Line is hands down the best park in NYC and quite possibly the world, and with its oblong shape and varied textures, it’s really the perfect landmark to recreate as a captivating miniature tablescape. I knew that it was imperative that I make all of the “flora and fauna” out of veggies and other T-day eats, but I was baffled about what to create the actual structure out of. It finally dawned on me – again, while I was binge eating in Japan – sushi takeout boxes! Read on to see the DIY steps showing how how you can turn some recycled chopsticks and plastic containers into a mini High Line Thanksgiving centerpiece that even Sandra Lee would be proud of!
