From iVillage, a striking arrangement of candles and fruit on rustic wood. And a simple ribbon makes an elegant napkin holder, while fruit and nuts pair beautifully with candles in fall hues.
Use a cake stand to hold apples and nuts...or gourds of different shapes and colors.
Or fill a lantern with colorful gourds and and fall leaves for an easy yet eye-catching display (from Home is Where the Boat Is).
Pretty fall flowers with berries and touches of rosemary, from Beautiful Blooms, are a beautiful touch for your autumn table. Or just put together a simple yet colorful bouquet of richly-hued autumn leaves!
Adding candle holders of different shapes and sizes to your centerpiece is a great way to add interest...
...As well as mixing in pine cones in an arrangement for a touch of nature at the table.
Which of these ideas would work in your autumn cottage?
