This wreath throws all the rules out the window — and that's why I love it. Instead of pine, try fragrant eucalyptus. Instead of predictable pine cones, go rich and romantic with peonies (don't worry, they're fake). And best of all, this DIY shakes it up shape-wise with a totally modern triangle.

Gravy is to turkey as frosting is to cake. As coffee is to donuts. As leggings and knit hats are to autumn days. Neither is really complete without the other. Get the picture? Although the turkey is often thought of as the Thanksgiving centerpiece, a good gravy is actually your secret weapon.
