Creating a Fall Centerpiece


One of the easiest ways to decorate for Fall, in my opinion, is to swap out your table centerpiece.  I have a “standard centerpiece” that is on my table for most of the year, but as soon as Fall or Christmas hits I’m ready for a change!

Here is how my dining room table usually looks.  I grabbed the vase and arrangement at Pottery Barn.  (The one I linked is silver – mine is white).

It’s a great neutral centerpiece for everyday, and is so easy to change out for different seasons!

The first thing I did was exchange the big green leaves with dried hydrangeas.   I love the look of white pumpkins and dried hydrangeas for Fall.  Clean, neutral and simple.  My favorite!

I picked up these lanterns from Hayneedle.


Two lanterns for $69.99 is a serious deal – you can’t beat that price!  They’re going to be my new staple since they’re so easy to transition to any season.

I filled the lanterns with a mini pumpkin and gourd vase filler I found at Michael’s.  I wanted to do something other than a basic candle in the lantern, so I thought the vase filler would be a fun touch.

I love white pumpkins wayyy too much, so I added a white pumpkin and a cute little green gourd to my vignette.

I arranged them to my liking, and that was all!  Now I have a festive centerpiece that fits the season.

It will be an easy swap out to Christmas.  I am planning on changing the fall vase filler out with ornaments, and replacing the dried hydrangeas with some sort of flocked evergreen/branch arrangement.  I’ve got my wheels turning…  😉


Until then…  Happy Fall!
