Thursday’s Theme: Simple Fall Centerpieces

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Leaf Harvest Table Runner | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThe Fall Centerpiece – the perfect way to mark the harvest season, add a little more warmth to your home and prepare for visiting friends and family. For some autumn inspiration, today we’re offering up some ideas to create a simple yet stunning seasonal centerpiece.

Table Linens

Placemats and Table Runners can be used all over your table, of course, but you can use a Table Runner or a Placemat as a setting for a more elaborate centerpiece. Use matching fabric or complementing colors – whatever suits your style best.

Baskets and Containers

Ideal for floral arrangements, holding pumpkins or apples, flower blossoms, candy and other seasonal goods, the centerpiece possibilities are endless with baskets and decorative containers.

Minor Details

Small details can make any centerpiece look larger than life. Get out your favorite fall collectibles, display seasonally-inspired tealight holders and/or mini wreaths, and collect some pinecones and fallen leaves to scatter around your table (or place in a basket, vase or container). These can be quickly placed and require minimal freshening up throughout the season.

Thursday’s Theme: Fall Flower & Plant Arrangement Ideas

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Only one day stands between us and the official first day of Autumn. So today we are sharing some fall flower and plant arrangement ideas that you can DIY quickly, and in most cases, with items around and outside your home.

DIY Pumpkin Vase | A Pumpkin & A Princess

One of the best vessels for holding plants and flowers this time of year is of course, the pumpkin. For an almost-perfectly cohesive look, use craft pumpkins in place of real pumpkins. Or, carve the top of a real pumpkin and clean it out like you would if you were creating a jack-o-lantern. Place flowers and greenery inside – they will look their best if their stems are trimmed relatively short. You could also place a candle inside and surround it with a mini wreath or strand of bittersweets and leaves.

Fall Mason Jar Vases | Anything & Everything: A DIY Blog

Mason jars are consistent stars of DIY projects, and especially when they are painted with autumn colors and filled with flowers, it’s easy to see why. But if you use Mason jars for canning or food storage and don’t have any to spare, painted coffee tins and similar containers offer just as much charm. Even empty wine bottles can be painted and used for single blooms along a table or mantel.

Fall and Halloween DIY Vases

Of course, what we hope you gain from this this post is how “charming” doesn’t have to mean “complicated.” And fall typically offers items right outside your door. Collect pinecones, colorful leaves, twigs and other natural elements, throw them in a glass vase and voila! Instant seasonal style. A ribbon can help spruce up the look, and potpourri will add even more freshness to your indoor living spaces.
