Don't have the time, energy or cash for festive elaborate table settings? Use what Mother Nature gave us!
Scatter colorful leaves down the center of your table in place of a runner.
Create interesting centerpieces by filling clear glass cylinders with dried seedpods, acorns or other nuts. Add candles of similar or contrasting color.
For softness and color, place small arrangements of hand-picked roses, sunflowers or any flower at hand at either ends of the centerpieces.
