Creating an elegant, natural holiday centerpiece

I'm a huge fan of decorating with natural items - not just what's found outdoors, in nature, but with items that can be picked up at the farmer's market or your grocery store and incorporating them with items you already have in your home. This works well for those on a budget - fruit and vegetables are not only affordable, but as they start to ripen the can get consumed and you can easily fill in the empty holes. This is also a great solution for those just starting out on their own with limited budgets, or starting all over again, as well as those living in smaller spaces, who simply don't have the storage to house large quantities of decorative items, whether seasonal or not.
