It doesn't get much easier than this centerpiece, and yet it say's fall. Tie Autumn leaves around a glass cylinder with twine or raffia. Be careful that the leaves don't reach above the rim since dry leaves are quite flammable. The photo above is a beautiful pumpkin wrapped at the base with bittersweet vines. You just can't go wrong when you bring Autumns glorious bounty to a centerpiece.
This charming centerpiece is right out of the garden. A wooden basket filled with harvested vegetables, a vase of Swiss Chard, and a small clay pot with Johnny Jump-ups. Guests could take home the plant or the basket as a favor gift.
A simple burlap runner with white candle lanterns and fall gourds is the epitome of simple and elegant.
If your entertaining outside, consider turning a hollowed out pumpkin into a flower pot. The pots are set inside the pumpkin and disguised with Spanish moss from the hobby store. Since you've cut the pumpkin it will have a limited life, but rub some petroleum jelly on the inside of a cut pumpkin to extend it's life.
You can find dried wheat in the floral dept. at your grocery store, or in your hobby store. For this centerpiece it was simply placed in a tall glass vase (without water) and wrapped with an orange satin ribbon. Use double sided tape to adhere the ribbon to the vase.
Aren't these glittered pumpkins on silver pedestals elegant. The secret here is that the 3 pumpkins are set at different heights. For this effect use fine glitter one shade lighter than your pumpkins. The shine of the glitter with the silver gives it a simple yet elegant feel.
For all out glitter glam, I love this vignette. The pumpkin and crow can be found at the dollar store and the ribbon, rose, feathers and urn can be found at your hobby store ( or you can spray paint an existing urn black). For this glitter effect use a course dark orange glitter, it will give you a more dramatic sparkle :)
How about an edible centerpiece? Here green beans and asparagus are wrapped around pillar candles and tied with gold ribbon, while the artichoke hearts have been removed and hollowed out for votive candles. White mums and pittosporum berries from the floral dept. finish off this centerpiece. You could also use bittersweet or cranberries. I love this!
Mini White Pumpkins, berries, and pine-cones, laid on a vintage plate set this Autumnal scene beautifully and simply :)
Assorted pumpkins, fall leaves, and corn husks are all this table needs to say "Welcome to our Fall Table, sit down and enjoy yourself".
