• For this centerpiece all you need is a variety of miniature pumpkins or gourds and some gold spray paint. Stack them on a glass cake plate or on their own and voilà! You have an elegant autumn display.

  • Create a stunning rustic centerpiece by using items found in your own backyard. This one is much easier to recreate than it looks. The log filled with tea lights is simple and beautiful on it's own, but you can easily dress it up with other fall favorites, such as miniature gourds and pinecones.

  • Add warmth to your dining table with an arrangement of pinecones in a large glass jar accented with glowing candles. We especially love the explosion of orange hydrangeas around the mouth of the jar for that perfect pop of color

  • Take your apples and gourds to the next level by making them functional, by turning them into candles! We adore how these easy-to-make apple votives make a unique and creative statement.

  • We love the idea of dressing up a simple pumpkin by painting it. In lieu of traditional orange, white looks clean and dramatic against vibrant fall colors. A garland of red berries really polishes off the look.

  • Our jaws dropped when we saw this vivid flower arrangement nestled in a turquoise-hued gourd. Instead of carving out another jack-o-lantern, make a vase out of your next pumpkin patch purchase and fill it with your favorite fall blossoms.

  • We love this use of unexpected color and texture in a autumn centerpiece. Set some easy-to-make gourd candleholders alongside other natural fall elements in a tray for a beautiful table decoration.

  • We fell for the surprising magenta color used in this centerpiece. Natural Indian corn also comes in a variety of colors and is the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving table.

  • Multiple floral accents can be a nice change as opposed to one large centerpiece. You can easily move the smaller arrangements around the table as food is added.  The acorns here add a charming touch topped with flowers.

  • Why not put those beer and wine bottles to work even after you've taken the last sip? We've seen candles in wine bottles before, but the painted on letters and twine wrapped around these bottles are especially fun and seasonal.
