Fruit and Vegetables
Attractive Autumn Dinner Decorations
Fruits and vegetables, iiutead of flowers,
should be the deroradn for fall dinner
tables. For instance, the centerpiece could
be a shapely pumpkin, the outride of which
must be mashed and rub I" 1 until It shines.
Ths top should be taken i ff to form a hole
four or six tnches laruc Then, with a
strong spoon, the seeds must be removed,
and in this- way the pumpkin becomes a
dish for fruits.
If tha edge of the top is scalloped the ef
fect Is prettier. To fill ths pumpkin apples
and a couple of oranges ars first put tn,
than two or three "lady" apples give a
touch of blight eoiiw. Grapes, both Tokay
and white, must be used to fill crevices.
Much ad.titional beauty Is given if bunches
of grapes are draped on the outside, this
being dona easily by suspending them f.-un
ths top edge. To hold the bunches in place
pieces of steel wire may be bent to serve
I as hooks, and tiny pieces of string may be
tied to the grapes to fjrm loops.
Elaboration Is given to the pumpkin by
cutting out strips of It lengthways, so the
fruits show through all ths way down.
Raw cranberries ars not used as much
