Pops of Color
While the white pumpkins are clearly the stars of this setting, adding natural elements that offer hints of color—whether they’re from seasonal flowers, berries, or other harvest produce—creates a cohesive scene that is also warm and inviting. Adding interesting elements like antlers offers unique texture and a touch of woodland whimsy.
Adding layers like these gorgeous candlesticks not only offers differing heights, an important factor in perfecting any presentation, but also provides mood. These luminous white candles create an entirely new atmosphere in this setting without overpowering the table.
