Chinese Apple with Vase of Flowers - 8 x 8" Pastel

On Thanksgiving my sister-in-law Beth garnished her turkey platter with a cut pomegranite. This led to a discussion...apparently, the entire world except for me calls this fruit a Chinese Apple! Anyway, thinking about that led to this Chinese inspired still life.
Now, a painting question. What color should the background be? I was (and still am) undecided as to the best color to set off the vase and fruit-- deeper? richer warm brown? deeper cool purply-blue? Or keep as is?!
