One design will feature fall branches, long stems of berried viburnum branches, extra-long roses, hydrangeas, chrysanthemum, and feathery flowers for filler. The other design will use glass cylinder vases bound together with tape and feature hydrangea, dahlia and/or chrysanthemum, phlox, and lace flower with fall foliage.
