Make a Modern Fall Harvest Centerpiece
Use ordinary household items & natural elements to create a fun centerpiece for your next celebration.
Fall decor can sometimes look heavy, but this sprawling centerpiece of pumpkin-colored California poppies, ivory peonies, saffron Peruvian lilies and crimson-tinted persimmon berries makes a warm, inviting space for guests. Juxtaposing unexpected flowers varieties against a monochromatic base in slate gray allows the softer hues and airy branches to stand out.
