The clear reflective glass adds a textural element to tablescapes and opens up many design possibilities. Read on for some designer hints on using hurricanes to decorate this fall.

Add symmetry. Two footed hurricanes stand out one of the pumpkins, gourds and candles and include a little bit of formality for this tasteful fall tablescape. Autumn leaves were tucked around the bases of their pillar candles within every hurricane.
Add height. These hurricanes stand tall on iron bases and look welcoming in an entry desk.
FOCAL POINT STYLING
Add layers. The key to successful dining table setting is layering with different textures and materials. A couple of hurricanes are simply 1 part in this tablescape.
Liz Williams Interiors
Use repetition. Three identical hurricanes really make a statement when lined up in a row. This designer filled the containers with brown lentils which mix in well with the weathered console dining table and neutral palette.
Contain them. For a different look, put three shots onto a tray, then surround them with the anchoring material, such as these pebbles.
Vary the peaks. When organizing a group of hurricanes, vary the heights for a satisfying effect.
Emily Hagerman Design
Round a vignette. A single hurricane accounts out equally items in this coffee-table arrangement and the other accessories across the room.

Flank a centerpiece. This one is easy. Get two of the same hurricanes and place them on both sides of your centerpiece.
Debra Campbell Design
Showcase a product. Putting a pumpkin, the symbol of fall, within a hurricane gives it a place of significance in this tablescape.
