|Fall Pears and Oak Leaves Centerpiece|
An arrangement of pears makes a wonderful centerpiece. Choose fruit in bright green, golden yellow, or russet red -- either fresh or artificial -- and pile into a pretty bowl.
Carry the fall theme through with some oak leaves (or any other type of fall leaf), acorns, and mini crab apples for a bit more color. All finished!
• 12-18 small pears, in any color you like (fresh or artificial)
• 3-5 large pears
• handful of oak leaves
• garnish with acorns and mini crab apples
• bowl container (or a platter or tray)
We've used three varities of pear and heaped them in our footed glass bowl.
Next, clip fall leaf stems into 4-6" lengths and insert a few here and there around the perimeter of the arrangement. Since our leaves were from the backyard oak tree we also added some acorns.
A final garnish of miniature red crab apples adds more color to this fall centerpiece.
Tip: Use artificial fruit for a long-lasting arrangement that only needs dusting!
