I have the easiest fall centerpiece to share with you today. You probably already have things you can use to recreate this yourself – and anything you don’t have can likely be found on your next trip to the grocery store. I actually did this same centerpiece last year, but I liked how it turned out and thought I would repeat it this year so I could share it with all of you. 🙂
I started with a chippy white vase and some berry garland. You could also use leafy branches, dried hydrangeas, wheat bundles, etc – take your pick! I simply stuffed the garland in the vase and allowed it to spill out naturally. Easy-peasy.
Next I grabbed a wood slice (ours came from a fallen tree in the backyard, but you can also find them at craft stores), and placed it, and the vase and berries, in my favorite wood tray. If you don’t have a tray, you could also use a large cutting board or lazy suzan – or just skip the tray part altogether. I just like them because it makes moving the entire arrangement around easier.
Finally, I added a variety of pumpkins and squash I picked up at the grocery store, scattered in a few pine cones – and done!
I use this centerpiece to add a little color and texture to our day-to-day dining room, but it could easily be dressed up a bit with a little candlelight for a fall dinner party – a few mercury glass pumpkins added in for some sparkle would be pretty too.
By the way, how cute is the curley-q stem on this acorn squash?? 🙂

P.S. Since I get occasional questions on where I find things, I thought I would start including a source list for some of the stuff you see here – is this something you would like me to include going forward??
