Pumpkins, ghosts and goblins are all things one would expect to see a lot of during the month of October, but there are a multitude of other fine fall elements that often get overlooked in the quest to decorate for Halloween. For the next few Wednesdays, The Finer Things will be focusing on autumn entertaining ideas that are still seasonal, yet unique enough to set your party apart from the rest.

Grapes, for instance, tend to be thrown into the summer party spotlight. However, with the typical grape harvest time period in the northern hemisphere being between the months of August and October (with the grapes for some late harvest wines, like Reisling, harvested in mid to late autumn), this dazzling fruit is fabulously fit for a fall fete.

For easy and effective centerpieces, place clusters of purple grapes in everything from silver bowls to glass hurricanes -- Project Wedding, County Living and Firefly Hill Designs
