Craft A Seasonal Tablescape

By conklyns on October 28, 2018 in Fall, Flowers. 0 Comments

Autumn is upon us and that means there are plenty of opportunities for seasonal entertaining. This year, the designers at Conklyn’s Flowers have put together some great tips and beautiful centerpieces to help your fall tablescape look its best. Create a modern cornucopia by filling a wide, wooden or metal container with hardy fall fruits and vegetables, gourds, and leafy accents. Artichokes, apples, pears, and kale are among the pieces that will give your table a rustic look. Create a unique twist on candlelight centerpieces when you carve mini-pumpkins into votives and float in a shallow container of water. Use blanched pumpkins and a clear glass container for a more elegant look. Something as simple as green apples in a wicker basket atop an all-white or cream table will stand out and symbolize the freshness of the harvest season beautifully.
