A quick trip to your local market, farmers market or pumpkin patch is the only stop you need to make to grab goodies for this simple, yet colorful centerpiece. Fill a white ceramic bowl with seasonal squash, kumquats, orange bell peppers, mini pumpkins and even oranges to brighten up the center of your table. This ceramic Emma Footed bowl from Pottery Barn is my personal favorite to use for seasonal centerpieces.

Create a cascading abundance of the gorgeous fruit that produces wine this Thanksgiving. Drape leaves over the edge of a large bowl, followed by bunches of grapes. At turkey dinner time, gather family and friends around this cup that runneth over. I love this Antique-Silver Serve Bowl from Pottery Barn to create this unique look.
