Fall Centerpiece Brainstorming

I'm not big on centerpieces--I think tableware and food done right are so beautiful that they are all the decoration a table needs--but weddings present specific design difficulties often enhanced by something going on.  So, for a dear friend (the lovely Rebecca R), I'm investigating possible (a) lovely, (b) possibly functional/tasty, (c) simple, and (d) cost-efficient Autumnal centerpieces for her October wedding luncheon in Portland.  Below is mostly just for me and her as I/we brainstorm, but if you are reading this and you want to chime in with a link or idea, feel free.
Note: I don't love all of these, but I love some, and I think the rest are inspirational in some way or another.

Not a huge fan of the mirror or the candle, but I like this as a reminder that even super simple is possible.

I think this is especially beautiful.

I don't love candles, but this is cool as far as candles go.


Maybe with real apples instead of candlapples.

Super easy instructions are here.  (Note: I plan to make these sometime.  I think they are rockstar, even without the banner.)
