Start with a large glass bowl and a small clear cup. Place the cup in the center of the bowl.
Add fruit, nuts, leaves, or anything in repetition that you enjoy. For mine I used Persimmon's of course.
Our persimmons aren't ripe yet but they are starting to change color and I think they are interesting to look at.
Once the bowl was full I "frosted" the persimmons with some crabapples.
Next I stuck a floral arrangement in the cup. You could easily use fresh flowers too.
I think the table turned out great. Very elegant.
And the best part I used the things I had, borrowed a few things from parents and I didn't spend a dime!
