This Thanksgiving display -- which includes chrysanthemums, scented geraniums, bupleurum, and eucalyptus -- inspired the arrangement that Martha prepared on the show.


Martha's simple, elegant arrangement, made with begonia leaves from her greenhouse.


A vase of dahlias, autumn leaves, and Chinese lanterns lent inspiration to Kevin Sharkey's centerpiece on the show.


Autumn leaves and other natural elements from your yard can give arrangements a beautifully rustic feel.
