A cozy autumn evening around the fire is made even merrier with a nice big bowl of popcorn. Let’s face it—popcorn is fun. But who knew this delightfully salty treat in its unpopped state could also be refined? Stylist Tracey MacMillan Runnion created a unique—and decidedly doable—centerpiece that starts with pouring popcorn kernels into a large, shallow bowl. Next, fill glass bottles of varying heights with more kernels, and place them in a pleasing arrangement in the bowl. Mini terra-cotta pots act as “stoppers” atop the bottles, and a votive candle is nestled in each pot. To finish off this clever fall display, add a few fall pears and another terra-cotta pot of flowers.
