Rustic and Simple Fall Centerpiece

Don’t you just love the selection of pumpkins that are available now? My favorite has to be the heirloom variety like the “Fairytale” pumpkin above. Since I needed a centerpiece for a Fall party I was having at the farmhouse, I just placed the big pumpkin in a large aged silver trophy bowl on my table. The combination of the linen runner, muted colors and tarnished bowl, created the perfect rustic and simple centerpiece.

Seasonal decorating doesn’t have to be over the top or expensive for that matter. Using what you already own with some of natures harvest is always a great choice. Shop your house and yard:)


I’m including some more photos of how I decorate for Fall at the farmhouse

    Carol, beautiful as always. This inspired me to get out my floating candles and maybe hang some flameless candles in the backyard trees. Neighbors would be very surprised. Can you tell me where you purchased the glass jars with the long metal handles?

      Hi Colleen, Hope you’re doing well:) I love floating candles for parties and I’m sure your neighbors would enjoy the lanterns. Those particular glass jars were purchased from Pottery Barn a few years ago. I’ve also made the same sort of hanging lanterns by securing wire around the neck of mason jars and using those. Very easy and you will adore them:) Thanks so much for stopping by Colleen:) Blessings, Carol
