Fall Flourishes

As nature’s color palette fully embraces autumn’s brilliant spectrum, join in the revelry with creative ideas that showcase the foliage of the season and make lovely displays for entertaining.

When October arrives in all its prismatic glory, the makings for beautiful displays are found all around. Above: A welcoming bouquet greets all who enter.

A few leaves tucked into a napkin ring are simple but festive, adding a seasonal touch to the table.
