Gather At The Autumn Table

As the chilly air and shorter autumn days keep us inside more to enjoy the warmth of home, you may want to bring a touch of the outdoors to your table to enjoy. Welcome friends and family with striking arrangements that use simple,natural elements to add beauty and warmth. Here are some ideas...

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.

From Cottage and Vine, pumpkins nestled in grapevine wreaths add a wonderful outdoor touch! 

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?
