Ripe fruits symbolize abundance and fertility -- and make delicious favors. Tomatoes look beautiful and enticing in this rustic Italian display.

To create it, gather vine-ripened tomatoes in red, orange, and yellow. Wrap them in red vegetable netting, twist closed, then place in berry baskets, tucking the excess netting under the tomatoes.

We arranged the baskets down the center of the table, alternating colors and sizes. A wooden garden pick placed in each basket is stamped "Enjoy!" The breadsticks add height, and bowls of olives continue the Italian theme.
