A Simple Fall Centerpiece with Pumpkins

September 15, 2015

Look for interesting gourds, squash, and pumpkins to create a unique centerpiece.  |  www.andersonandgrant.com

Over Labor Day weekend, I had the opportunity to visit an amazing farm market in the city.  I'll be sharing more about it tomorrow, but it was like this place knew I needed white and green pumpkins and gourds for decorating this year.  (My color theme for this year centers around a neutral color palette.  You can read more about it here.)

Isn't this dough bowl filled with fall squash, gourds, and pumpkins beautiful for the dining room table?  |  www.andersonandgrant.com

I've been tucking the little beauties in places all over the house and today I wanted to share a simple centerpiece created using a mixture of what I bought.  It is something you can easily create for yourself.  I'm joining in with five other blogging friends who are sharing their ideas for creating mantels and tablescapes, too.  All of the links to their blogs appear at the end of this post.

An inexpensive and easy way to create a beautiful fall centerpiece is to look to nature.  Fill a dough bowl with pumpkins, squash, gourds, and leaves.  Find out more at www.andersonandgrant.com.

Simplicity is the key to me enjoying fall this year.  That means spending time creating elaborate displays in not on my agenda.  Sometimes the best centerpiece doesn't take a lot of time or cost a lot of money to create.  For less than $10 (not including the dough bowl or table runner which I already had), I was able to create a really pretty arrangement that will last through the season.  It is also easy to remove from the table when a clear space is necessary.

Gourds come in all shapes, sizes, and colors.  Find some interesting ones to create a fall centerpiece.  |  www.andersonandgrant.com

I started by laying a pretty table runner with crocheted trim on the ends across my antique table.  You could also use something rustic like burlap or a grain sack.

Green and white gourds, squash, pumpkins, and oak leaves...Great idea for a neutral fall decor.

Inside the dough bowl are some small white pumpkins, a green buttercup squash, and some unique green and white gourds.  I also tucked some green oak leaves that have been collected and dried over the past few weeks.

Pumpkins, gourds, and fallen leaves are a perfect combination for fall in any color palette.  Nature can really be beautiful when you use it to decorate your home.  This is the type of display that you could also use on a coffee table or sideboard.

So what do you think of my simple centerpiece?  I can't wait to be able to show you more of my dining room next week in a fall home tour.  There is so much to share during the fall and winter months and I always enjoy joining in with some of my best blogging buddies to do it.
