What You Need for a Festive Fall Centerpiece

Fall is in the air and our apple pies will soon be in the oven as we start entertaining and gathering for the autumn season. Something that makes your home a little warmer for guests, family and friends is seasonal decor, and more specifically, a beautiful centerpiece (or centerpieces!) on the dining room table. Here are a few items that will always turn your display into a work of wonder.

  • Pumpkins

Of course, right? Whether they are real, faux, made of glass or wicker, bright orange or different colors, incorporating pumpkins into your centerpiece is a must. You could even set out just three or four pumpkins and have an instant fall look.

  • Candles

We recommend using flameless candles for safety and everlasting effect, but real and scented candles are just as decorative. Place them in lanterns with mini leafy wreaths, or opt for colorful candles in yellow, orange, red and white to create an appealing presentation.

  • Leaves and Flowers

Speaking of leaves, scattering a few throughout your centerpiece is a simple way to add natural charm to a table, and golden hued flowers coordinate beautifully, especially when placed in decorative vases.

While your centerpiece may have many other decoratives within it – collectibles, linens, trugs filled with ornaments and baubles – the above can help you get started if you’re not sure where to begin, or want a simple look with not a lot of fuss. You certainly cannot go wrong with pumpkins, candles, leaves and flowers, so get decorating and welcome your guests with an inviting centerpiece this fall.
