4 Items to Create an Elegant Fall Decor Centerpiece :
- vintage silver – candlesticks or goblets – I used both
- white pumpkins (any color will do)
- fall greens – picks, garland, leaves, limbs
- a couple of fresh flowers
1. Vintage Silver in Fall Decor
First, if you don’t have silver goblets, I can almost guarantee that you can pick some up for next to nothing at your nearest thrift store! And do you want to know a secret? In the current home decor environment, dingy, dinged up, slightly bent silver is perfectly acceptable. Now, if you have family heirloom silver, by all means clean that up and use it. Either is perfectly acceptable.
But, what do you do with these vintage silver candlesticks, sugar bowls, and wine goblets? So glad you asked.
2. White Pumpkins for Charming Fall Decor Centerpiece
Sure, you can stick a beautiful taper candle in the mix, but you can also nestle in some cute white pumpkins. I see them all over the craft stores, but if you want real ones, they can be found for little money at the grocery store.
3. Fall Foliage – Faux or From the Backyard
Once again, go faux or go on a walk through the neighborhood. Which do I like better, you ask? It really depends on how long I want the look to last. If it’s for a dinner party, I like to use real fall greens. If I’m using it in the entry for a client and want it to last for the season, I’d obvi want some good looking fall picks, or fall garland from one of my go to crafts stores.
4. Grocery Store Flowers – DIY Fall Decor Centerpiece
Of course, if you want a look that will last for the entire fall season, you can use silk flowers. As a matter of fact, I will use fresh flowers for photo shoots, and when I’m having guests, and replace them with faux when they give up the ghost.
