Just this morning I felt a slight chill in the air — such a treat following weeks of stifling heat. And the perfect inspiration for a post on what’s trending in centerpieces.

As much as we love flowers of all shapes and sizes, we are seeing such creativity in the use of unexpected elements such as fruits, veggies and legumes. Such a perfect fit for the Fall season.

Our Louise Georges Yves styling team has used a variety of seasonal items such as fruit and berries to brighten up our settings in unexpected ways. Check out a few of our LGY designed faves from some recent Vibiana weddings — tangelo filled lamps, a kale infused wreath and a kumquat draped escort card display.

And with Fall’s offerings, there is so much to choose from!

With apples turning their full hue, who can resist?

Pumpkins, squash, and gourds provide eclectic shapes and a neutral palette to complement a variety of decor styles.
