Set a Fall Table

Fruit and flowers are the staples for festive autumn-inspired table tops. 

Fall Feast

Enliven your Thanksgiving table, or any fall gathering, with a centerpiece that makes the most of fall's warm and inviting colors.

Pears arranged in a tall compote set an elegant palette, which is picked up in low arrangements of roses and rich choices in china.

Delightful Detail

Inscribe your guests' initials on a pretty leaf for an unusual place card. Use a metallic paint pen for a polished look.

Seasonal Effect

Then, as colder weather approaches, change out the flowers for ones with more vibrant color, and replace the pears with citrus fruit.

Orange You Glad

For another nature-inspired touch on your table, stud oranges with cloves in guests' initials for fragrant placeholders

Pile on the Pomegranates

A grouping of pomegranates makes for a classic centerpiece. Add a mixture of colorful blossoms and artichokes for a noteworthy pair of floral arrangements.

Rich Textures

Combine a variety of materials for a sumptuous table. Here, glass, metallic, and iridescent finishes lend festive glimmer.
