Autumn Wedding Centerpieces

Autumn wedding centerpieces - made with pumpkin shaped candles, pine cones and fall colored flowers. So many prickly pine cones in my front yard and back, I could dress up a dozen tables for less than I paid for my Caesar Chicken Salad at two o'clock today. Using what our beautiful planet has to provide - fruits, nuts, twigs, grape vines, berries, branches, pine cones, pumpkins and dried wheat - just feels more responsible than paper and plastic. Fall colored candles cast their warm glow all over the room. It makes you feel cozy and comfortable, and glad that you came.
