This year, we are all about elephant ear plants and banana leaf, and this place-setting style is an innovative and fun way to use this trendy plant in your home. Nearly any large palm leaf will do, and while you can find great faux versions out there, we recommend heading to your local florist for a few real clippings to achieve ultimate tropical island goals for your next dinner party.

If you’re looking for a new twist on fall pumpkins, this greenery and pumpkin basket look is a chic way to celebrate the season without going over the top. Any green plant will do for this look, but we love this knotweed version that adds a touch of light color to the piece. Go big and fill a whole basket, or sprinkle white pumpkins and greenery in small arrangements throughout your house.
