Beautiful Fall Centerpieces

Decorate your fall table with pumpkins, gourds, nuts, fall flowers, fruits, candles and other seasonal materials.

Dressed-up fruits

Add sparkle to autumn colors with this easy centerpiece idea. Choose a few pears or apples and decorate with adhesive decals in silver, bronze, and gold tones. Group together in a bowl or place along a table runner.

Autumn tin

Vintage tins work well as containers any time of year. For a fall arrangement, look for a tin in an autumn hue that will complement your flowers.  Here, a yellow tin holds white ranunculus, red-rimmed orange ranunculus, a spray of white roses, gold alstroemeria, pinecones, oranges, variegated pittosporum and magnolia leaves.  Floral foam holds most of the centerpiece; wire the oranges and pinecones to wooden kabob spears to give them height.

Pumpkin color

Fresh fall branches and Jack-Be-Little pumpkins in the bottom of tall glass vases showcase a pumpkin color scheme. Twine passed through holes drilled in Sweetie Pies lets these smaller pumpkins hang from a chandelier.

Harvest table

An easy grouping of seasonal items and colors brings autumn to your tabletop.

Orange and white pumpkins plus yellow chrysanthemums in a sunny yellow container create an eye-catching centerpiece. Elevate some of the pumpkins for added flair.


Fashion a spooky tabletop display that starts with easy-to-make plaster-cloth spheres.

Wrap plaster-cloth strips (from a crafts store) around a balloon, following the directions on the plaster-cloth package. Leave open spaces as you wrap. When dry, remove the balloon and use a crafts knife to cut an opening for inserting the light. Place sphere over an orange or white battery-operated votive. Set your spheres on clear glass cake stands or similar displays.
