Create a unique centerpiece with exotic-looking dried flowers, bunches of grapes, and shimmering plum and gold accents.
Drape bunches of oversize faux grapes over the edge of your centerpiece vases. If the grapes cause the vase to tip over, add rocks or vase filler inside to weigh it down and keep it steady. Embellish your centerpiece vases with bands of ribbon. Try layering patterned ribbon over a wider band of solid ribbon for a contemporary look.
