Segment 1: Autumn brunch
Be original and create your own brunch for the fall season. Use a muffin tin to hold an assortment of fall goodies such as jam, pieces of biscuits or some kind of roll cut into smaller sizes, fresh fruits, figs, etc. What ever you want makes for a perfect display that not only looks great but taste so good. Even a round cake pan makes for a perfect container to house autumn snacks.  If you can find a cake tin in the shape of a pumpkin or leaf, better yet...

Segment 2: Potted pumpkins
Add a twist to your fall decorating by creating your very own "potted pumpkins". All you have to do is take a container and  plant it with green ivy and then simply sit a pumpkin on top. This will give the illusion that the pumpkin is growing on the vine. If you have or can find a Terra Cotta pumpkin that looks carved, then just add a light in it and place that on top of the potted ivy.  Placed on a timer, your pumpkin will glow at night with out any real flame. Chris finds that variegated creeping fig, pothos, or any houseplant vine for that matter will work as the perfect vine. Even a hanging basket of blooming petunias can work and add a hint of color to your autumn display.
