Hello! Up today are some very simple and budget-friendly Thanksgiving Fall Centerpiece Ideas. You can put these together now and enjoy them all the way up to Thanksgiving Day. Nothing complicated but they all have a bit of orange which makes them very festive and fun.
The first idea is so simple, but it works because it’s layered. Start with something soft…like a runner. It will add interest and texture as well as ground your centerpiece. Add a tray or even two. Stacking is the perfect way to help the layers along. All I did once I had the base in place was add candles, pumpkins and bittersweet. The pumpkins aren’t real but I think they almost look like they are. The bittersweet is fresh and colorful. Something like this will last for weeks and takes just a few minutes to put together.
The next idea uses one of my favorite pieces of ironstone. This tureen moves around my house and pops up whenever I need a neutral container. It was a Goodwill find a few years ago and set me back a whopping $3.00. Once again I began with a runner and added a tray.
I stacked a grapevine bittersweet wreath on the tray and set the tureen down inside the wreath. A smaller bowl inside the tureen worked as a riser for the moss and pumpkin. I love the way this turned out because the orange berries pop off the ironstone. It’s cheerful and welcoming…and very fallish.
The last idea is what my mom would have referred to as “everything but the kitchen sink.” It’s all sorts of natural elements arranged on a large wooden tray. I gathered pine cones, pumpkins, dried hydrangeas, berries, bittersweet and a few faux leaves.
I started with the two giant pine cones in the middle flanked by stacked pumpkins. To stack the pumpkins I had to break off the stem of the base so the top one would sit without tipping. After that, I just started adding the smaller elements. I tried to mix up the colors and if there was a hole, I just filled it in with a sprig of hydrangea.
Prepare a mixture of bleach, water and dish soap.
(One gallon water, 2 T. bleach and a squirt of dish soap.)
Soak real gourds for 15 to 30 minutes.
Use a tub or even your kitchen sink.
Rinse and dry well.
Before adding to your decor it’s optional
to give your pumpkins a quick coat
of spray matte sealer.
It helps preserve them even longer.
