Garden on a Tabletop

Last week we had a dinner party and for the centerpiece I took a trip to the nursery and the produce department.
Pumpkins, squash, gourds, corn and pomegranates complimented the flowers, fruits and vegetable plants in pots.

Pansies in fall shades tucked in with kale and lettuce filled metal urns. Strawberry plants spill out of clay pots.

Leaves and pods from the gardens and tea light candles in Mideastern tea glasses completed the display.
And the beauty of it all is this week most of it will be planted in the garden, eaten or composted.

What a great idea for a centerpiece! I love that you've mixed live green plants in there, too.

Lovely idea. Your centerpiece is pretty and very appropriate for the season.
