Bed of Leaves – One beautiful pumpkin resting on a bed of leaves is simple and organic. Scale this idea up or down as space allows: a tall pumpkin would look lovely with just a handful of leaves at the base.
Magnolia and Pinecones – Wide bowls (or even trays or platters) can make centerpiece creation simple. Line the bottom with greenery, then fill with large items such as pinecones or ornaments. Finally, garnish with a different texture. We used magnolia leaves, golden pinecones, matte gold ornaments, and a sprinkling of red berries.
Fall Fruits – A pyramid of fall fruits and miniature squash plated on a birch-log pedestal is a simple but beautiful centerpiece.
