Natural Table Runner

For a fresh-from-the-pumpkin-patch table runner, arrange a line of miniature pumpkins or gourds in the center of the table and weave double-faced ribbon around them. Top with a bittersweet stem for a blaze of color.

Cool White

Choose white pumpkins for a soft yet stunning arrangement that will standout amid the Thanksgiving table fare.

Autumn Foliage

Capture autumn’s changing colors by featuring a short tree branch as a natural centerpiece. Weight a pot with stones and fill with dry florist’s foam to secure the branch, then wrap the pot in a drawstring jute bag. Flank the centerpiece with floral arrangements in leaf-inspired colors — try roses, millet, kale, leaves, and berries.
