    Adding cranberries to the water in the vases for flowers is an easy Thanksgiving table idea that adds a beautiful festive element to your floral arrangement. The cranberries float in the water to create an eye-catching red top to your vase. Place two or three miniature vases with cranberries on the table to go along with your flowers.

    A flower that would look lovely in cranberry water vases is the sunflower. The yellow from the sunflowers looks great contrasted with the red from the cranberries, and offsets the brown from your Thanksgiving table.
