We love this modern take on displaying wheat stalks on the Thanksgiving table.  Wheat stalks are a great choice for this holiday because they symbolize many good things in life like prosperity, love, home, health, harvest and hope.  You can choose whichever colors match with your dinnerware.  Even better… keep the kids busy with the wrapping so you can focus on the cooking.
