A tiered cake stand makes the perfect stage for a centerpiece with height and color.
Mix a variety of citrus fruits (lemons, clementines, oranges, limes, grapefruit) and fresh blooms to elegantly brighten the table.
The combination of red and green pears complements the harvest-colored flowers. To fully connect the two, incorporate a layer of petals in to the bottom of the bowl, making sure they peak out ever so slightly.
Ideal for a children's party but festive enough for the grown-ups as well, this mix of peppermint trees and marshmallow snow transforms any table into a winter wonderland.
When serving breakfast to your guests, use a pedestal stand to both present your meal and decorate the table. This centerpiece mixes several types of fruit, but it would also work well with muffins, croissants, and scones.
While you're baking this season, think about trying this idea. Tie decorated sugar cookies with ribbon to a miniature tree. Cookies can be nibbled on a day or two after hanging, but they'll continue to look good for weeks.
