Teeming with oversize grapes and fall foliage, these simple yet abundant centerpieces are reminiscent of Ancient Rome and ideal for modern-day impromptu entertaining. Begin by gathering bunches of grapes at your local market. For her Thanksgiving centerpiece, Martha uses 'Red Globe' and 'Autumn Royal,' two widely available varieties known for their large size. Arrange the grapes as desired on a compote dish or in a soup tureen, allowing a few to drape over the side. For the final touch, add fall foliage in a range of complementary hues.
