Gourd Garland
Mark Boughton/styling: Teresa Blackburn


Indian Corn: Colorful Indian corn brings a note of color and whimsy to an otherwise ordinary place setting.



Table Luminary: A collection of whole nuts, pine cones, twigs and crisp autumn leaves nestled in a large decorative glass jar and snuggled around an oil-based luminary is a gorgeous but simple centerpiece for your dinner table.



Pumpkin Art: Pumpkins, parsnips and carrots…oh my. Put the two together for a fun seasonal display—even after Halloween.



Gourd Garland: Using a generous length of strong kitchen or cotton twine, string a colorful mix of fall gourds, squash and peppers and hang in your favorite kitchen window.
