Celebrate the season with fall branches. Cut them from your own yard or purchase some from your local flower market. For lush leaves, look for maple, pear, burning bush, or rose hips. For harvest-time fruit, opt for branches laden with persimmons, pomegranates, or crab apples.
Group sprigs in large glass vases. Or, try laying single ones across your tables as inexpensive centerpieces -- the result is effortless and elegant, elevated and modern.
