1. Edible Arrangements
With a fall feast in store, what better way to incorporate fruits and vegetables than in the table centerpiece? Hollow out bell peppers and use them as vases for autumn flowers like mums, dahlias and gerbera daisies to add a creative and simple touch to the table.

2. Thanksgiving Vases
Fill a tall glass or galvanized vase with long, thin branches to create an inviting and festive centerpiece that brings the crisp feel of autumn indoors. Fill glass vases or mason jars in varied heights with dried corn kernels or black-eyed peas to instantly add another natural element to accent the rustic feel of the holiday.

3. Mini Pumpkin Candles
The first sign of fall typically comes in the form of mini pumpkins gracing the ends of produce section aisles. These little pumpkins brighten any fall tablescape. Core a small round section where the stem is located. Remove the stem and hollow out the small section, then place an LED tea light securely in the spot.
