If there happens to be any free space on your table, a centerpiece is a great way to add a pretty touch to your holiday meal.
With these centerpieces. you can go free form with antlers and candles, contained in a rustic wooden box, or use the pumpkins as the containers themselves!
If you choose to go with the pumpkin succulent route, try putting a piece of floral foam inside the pumpkin to take up the space.

The mantle is often the centerpiece of a living room, so why not give it a little spruce! Stacking cinderella pumpkins and leaves gives a natural look that will only take a few minutes to put together. For the feather garland, gold dipped feathers can be purchased at most craft stores and then all you have to do it hot glue them to some string!
