Happy Monday and happy Fall, y’all!
Boy would I love to be in Minnesota this month as the leaves are changing color!
All my family members live in the #4 band on that chart, but we won’t be there at this time this year. 🙁 We were thinking about going in late November, so Steevenson can see snow for his 6th birthday, but my relatives tell me they haven’t even had snow on Christmas the past couple of years! My aunt said if we want to see snow, we should wait til January or February. My how times have changed since I was a kid and snowed in on Halloween up there!
Back to Fall though…
There’s lots of Fall centerpiece inspiration floating around the web right now, but it seems like so many of the ideas would cost of small fortune, wouldn’t last more than a day or two, and/or wouldn’t be easy to move if you wanted to use the center of the table for food. But I’ve been looking at my table thinking I want something that’s pretty, affordable, easy to create, and that will last all season (or longer), so I thought I’d put together a collection of that kind of inspiration here today, and then post my own idea on Friday.
1. Wheat + pitcher + tray + mini pumpkins
I love the palette of that one. The warm wheat paired with the cool white and metals…gorgeous! And Janet’s grainsack style table runner is the perfect finishing touch. Here’s a link to her post about the project: How To Style A French Farmhouse Table
2. Faux pumpkins + dried hydrangeas + apple basket + Kraft paper + books + Fall leaves + wooden tray
I love how Ashley created dimension by starting with varied heights of stacked books covered by brown Kraft paper. Softening all the holes with fallen leaves is such a great (free!) idea too! Here’s a link to here step by step: A Simple Fall Centerpiece
3. Lace doily + pumpkin + lantern + mini pumpkins + asparagus fern
That lace doily idea stopped me dead in my scroll! So pretty! Here’s a link to Ann’s post: Mod Podge Lace Pumpkin.
4. Faux magnolia blossoms + faux pumpkin + stump slice + rattan charger + glitter acorns + mini pumpkins:
Kristi and Kelli knocked my socks off with that one. What a pretty, neutral display! Here’s a link to their post about it: DIY Magnolia Pumpkin.
5. Pumpkins + large wooden bowl + vase filler items + faux sprigs
How gorgeous and portable is that? Here’s a link to the Goodwill Gal’s post: Ready For Fall
6. Crate + faux greenery + antlers + faux or dried hydrangea + gourds
Wow! I love the idea of using a vintage crate. Here’s a link to April’s tutorial: DIY Fall Centerpiece
7. Bleached pine cones + antlers + mini pumpkins + iron urn
*Sigh*. Is that a breath of fresh (Fall) air or what? It’s a Loithai creation and you can find it here: Instagram.com/Loithai.
Aren’t those great? 😀 I’ll be back Friday with whatever I come up with this week!
