Use ginkgo leaves, crab apples, and wheat when decorating for your next fall get-together.
Transform a glass oval container filled with white rice into a custom silverware holder. Tie sets of silverware together with ivory satin ribbon for an elegant look.
Fill a small glass bowl with pumpkin seeds. Top with white and yellow gourds for a natural centerpiece.
Fill a tall glass votive holder with 1 inch of dried white beans. Sprigs of crab apples or other yellow berries make an ornamental addition to the table.
Milkweed pods are a stunning centerpiece when placed in a tall glass vase. Surround the vase with white and yellow gourds, and place them all in a shallow basket. Set this on a side table to draw attention to the beauty surrounding the meal.
Line a walkway or steps with this seasonal display. Hollow out a squat white gourd. Bundle fountaingrass, found at local plant nurseries, with twine and secure it in the gourd. If you can't find fountaingrass, any brown ornamental grass will look great.
Dress up a white plate with a square of burlap and a single gingko leaf. Let the ends of the burlap fray for a country look.
Create an all-white display by grouping elegant white pumpkins. Hollow some out to fill with fountaingrass and wrap others with burlap strips for a chic, natural outdoor scene.
Lay newspaper on the table for a rustic (and cheap) tablecloth. Gingko leaves stand stark against the black-and-white paper and look like they fell right from the tree to the table.
