Create A Fall Centerpiece From The Produce Aisle

Fall Centerpiece

Is you home decorated for fall yet? 我还在为我的房子准备秋季假期.  

Fall Centerpiece

通常,我只买一个南瓜,把它放在餐桌中央就够了.  But, after seeing my mother’s beautiful fall centerpiece (above), I decided to try to do something a little more creative…

Fall Centerpiece

So, 我决定挑战一下自己,看看我能想出什么独特的秋季装饰,我去了当地超市的农产品区.  我决定把眼光放远,不只是普通的秋季祭品南瓜和印第安玉米 to see if I could be inspired. 

Fall Centerpiece

令人惊讶的是,我找到了一些蔬菜和水果,它们在秋季的餐桌上看起来很不错.  所以,带着手机相机,我开始拍摄一些我最喜欢的照片……

Fall Centerpiece

Acorn Squash

Now, I don’t like to eat squash at all.  我还记得我把煮熟的南瓜藏在我的餐巾里,我的祖母试图让betway旗舰版下载吃.

Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash

BUT, squash looks great when used as a fall decoration.

Butternut Squash

In fact, 我甚至见过用黑色马克笔画鬼脸的冬南瓜灯.

Artichoke

Okay, artichokes are another vegetable that I don’t like.  But, they look great in arrangements, so I bought one.

Pomegranates

最后,我找到了我喜欢吃和装饰的东西——石榴.  I love their deep color, don’t you?

Oranges

Limes

Let’s not forget citrus, 无论你如何使用它,哪一个总是美丽的——是放在桌子中央的碗里,还是作为更大的摆设的一部分.

Heirloom Tomatoes

Heirloom Tomatoes

我承认,在制作秋季餐桌中心装饰品时,人们首先想到的并不是传家宝番茄.  但是,它们深沉而丰富的颜色会突出任何中心装饰品.  番茄不会像我所描述的其他农产品那样经久耐用, so use for a few days and then eat them.

Mangoes

Mangoes

How about mangoes? 

Apples

Apples

Apples are great for decorating the tabletop.  I like to use them at Christmas time as well.

Red Pears

Red Pears

我想我以前从来没有注意过我的杂货店里有这么多不同种类的农产品.

我确实得到了一些东西,我将尝试创建一个中心装饰品.  I promise to share it with you later.

与此同时,我发现自己被商店里不同寻常的南瓜产品迷住了……

Fall Centerpiece

Aren’t they beautiful?

I selected one for my centerpiece.  当我回到家,我兴奋地把它拿给我的孩子看,令我惊讶的是,他们对此并不高兴.  They asked, “Is this the pumpkin we are going to carve?”

我向他们保证,这个南瓜只是用来装饰的,希望能一直持续到感恩节.

我确实答应过他们以后雕刻一个“普通的”南瓜.

So, when you head to the supermarket this weekend, 仔细看看货架上的农产品,看看你可以用什么来打造属于自己的“自然”秋季装饰.

    Your mother's centerpiece is quite nice and festive, 但我必须承认,我的眼睛被下面那张华丽的桌子吸引了. The wood of that table looks gorgeous!!

    I love all those warty looking pumpkins in your picture. 我知道用南瓜装饰没有那么有创意,但我想我会选择这些!
