Your grocer's produce section is the source for-flowering kale and sprigs of fresh rosemary and sage. A bounty of white and muted green flowers rounds out the centerpiece. We used hydrangea, licorice vine, millet, blue thistle, tallow berry, dusty miller and hypericum.
Use a container of your choice and fill with floral foam, cut to fit. Insert wooden skewers into the pumpkins and arrange those first. Fill in holes with greenery.
Complement your centerpiece with cabbage-leaf napkin rings. Start by folding a square dinner napkin in half to make a rectangle. Roll up tightly, starting from a short side;
Slightly overlap the stem ends of two ornamental cabbage leaves; wrap craft wire around the ends to secure.
Wrap the leaves around the rolled napkin,
overlapping the leaves on top. Use a wooden skewer to make small holes in and out of the leaves. Remove the skewer; insert a small twig in and out of the holes.
