Displaying the fall bounty

Fall is the season for an endless supply of persimmons, pomegranates and gourds from my orchard. During the fall season, I like to create vignettes using my fall bounty around the house instead of flowers. 

 Dried carrot wood flowering branches used as an accent for the fall bounty

Baskets filled with pomegranates give that bountiful color around the house

Stay tuned for the recipes and tips about Thanksgiving entertaining.
