Purple & Orange Produce Centerpiece

For a Halloween centerpiece, don’t limit yourself to gourds and pumpkins – striking color combinations can be created with many other vegetables and fruits (and the kids can snack off of this one too)…

Plums and Mandarin oranges; aubergine and deep orange tones work well together — very appropriate for Halloween.

A small poplar wood board (purchased at Home Depot for a few dollars) serves as the base; oranges & plums are placed among white pillar candles and goldenrod clippings are tucked in between.

It's an edible arrangement — my older daughter ate a plum directly from this centerpiece after last night's dinner.

    Love it! It’s so Scandinavian. Pinning this to remember.
