Colourful Autumn Vignette

Exhibit freshly cut foliage in vintage bottles.

Maple leaves stay fresh for up to three weeks and, when the leaves begin to drop, a few here and there add seasonal flair. Fill bottles with tepid water, then cut the bottom of the branches on an angle. To help them take in water, use a sharp knife to slice up the middle of each branch about an inch. Replace the water when it becomes murky.
