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.
Inscribe your guests' initials on a pretty leaf for an unusual place card. Use a metallic paint pen for a polished look.
Then, as colder weather approaches, change out the flowers for ones with more vibrant color, and replace the pears with citrus fruit.
For another nature-inspired touch on your table, stud oranges with cloves in guests' initials for fragrant placeholders.
A grouping of pomegranates makes for a classic centerpiece. Add a mixture of colorful blossoms and artichokes for a noteworthy pair of floral arrangements.
Serve a Pomegranate Cocktail to tie in with the table setting.
Combine a variety of materials for a sumptuous table. Here, glass, metallic, and iridescent finishes lend festive glimmer.
