FILL VASES WITH FALLEN BRANCHES

Behold: The loveliest (and least expensive) addition to your holiday mantlescape.

DECORATE YOUR FOOD

Turkeys, cakes, you name it: They all look so much snazzier with herb or floral garnish.

DRESS THE BUFFET

Why stop at just the food? A few strategically placed fall branches will add so much drama to your spread.

ADD UNEXPECTED PUMPKIN DISPLAYS

Who says pumpkin piles have to live on the porch? This under-console situation is just the chicest.

STAGE AN AUTUMN TABLEAU

Know how a tree setup just announces Christmas? We say, adopt that concept for turkey day with a large-scale, fall-themed nature moment. (Think: a non-working fireplace filled with gorgeous gourds and blooms!)

TOP NAPKINS WITH FALL FRUITS

Little tabletop details can make for a highly 'Grammable moment. We’re super loving this persimmon-garnished napkin situation.

STICK TO WARM TABLETOP TONES

Reds, golds, coppers, oranges—bring ‘em. When you select solid colors, this typical fall palette can still feel totally unexpected.

ARRANGE A FLEET OF BUD VASES

If you’re feeling crafty, buy some fall greens and blooms at your local grocery (eucalyptus, mums, etc.)—then trim them into mini bud vase arrangements to decorate all your surfaces.
