A Fall State of Mind

Antique Glass Compotes for Fall
Fall is officially here! To get yourself into a fall state of mind, choose foods and objects with autumnal colors, such as plum purples, vibrant oranges, rich browns, and muted greens.

Display these items on vintage compotes and cake stands, doubling or tripling them to create a striking compote tower. Used as a centerpiece for a breakfast table or on a kitchen counter, this autumnal display will serve as a beautiful reminder to enjoy this time of year.
