No matter if a meal is planned or not, a table can be dressed and decorated on a whim. Foraged natural items, such as driftwood, branches, seed pods, or foliage plants can create as big an impact as an expensive floral bouquet.
For this arrangement, I used greens and berries from the garden and placed them into a cholla cactus skeleton I found during a trip to Arizona. As a final touch, string lights were added for a little daytime glamour—an easy way to keep your centerpiece captivating if your guests linger past sunset.
