A stark white color scheme gives this easy centerpiece an aura of understated elegance.
Say good-bye to plain orange pumpkins. Creamy-white varieties, such as the "ghost" pumpkin show here look elegant adorned with silver glitter and nestled in boxwood, ivy, and stephanotis atop a silver wine cooler.
Ivory column candles, crystal votive cups, fresh seasonal flowers, and minature white pumpkins accenutate the seasonal display and round out the arrangement. The pale color scheme works equally well for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Although you may not have a silver piece that matches this one, you can achieve a similar effect with a low silver serving bowl or silver platter. Scout flea markets and antique shops for suitable pieces, recognizing that some wear and tear only adds to the character of the display.
