Spooky black-and-orange decorations aren't your thing? Try this pretty alternative: Place white chrysanthemums and ornamental cabbage in cream-colored apple baskets on your front lawn, and surround with white pumpkins and gourds.
Use pomegranates for autumnal centerpieces. Cut the branches to a height that allows its heavy fruits to rest on the rim of your vase. Then fill in with inexpensive foliage, such as the purple shiso leaves. apples, or persimmons.
