Stack one cake plate or pedestal on top of another to create height at the center of the table. If you don't have a pedestal, stack a plate on top of an upside-down bowl, making sure it is stable. Arrange fruit, like grapes in bunches, along with nuts, small apples, pears and artichokes on the stacked plates.
Add a festive touch to the seating area with a handmade organic garland. This all-natural version is made with a mix of twine, magnolia leaves and acorns. For an unexpected update, metallic paint is brushed onto the magnolia leaves.
Think outside of the fruit bowl and tuck some edible goodness into flower bouquets as well. Black grapes look striking against hydrangeas and eucalyptus leaves. Pinecones and mini artichokes still look "floral," but add a different texture. Play around with combinations to see what looks interesting. Tip: The grapes were simply nestled into this flower arrangement, but larger fruit can be stuck on wooden skewers.
