The beauty of autumn centerpieces...


Autumn is so lovely naturally that using its bounty to decorate is a practically foolproof way to add a little beauty to your home at this time of year. With Thanksgiving just a couple of weeks away, I've been dreaming of a beautiful autumn table set with fall dishes and linens and, of course, a gorgeous centerpiece. I turned to my Pinterest boards for inspiration and thought I'd share some of my favorite finds with you.
What could be easier than a tray full of apples and pears and a few fall berries and flowers, like the one above by Better Homes & Gardens? The basket centerpiece below, also by BHG, caught my eye because I have some Longaberger baskets that would be perfect for this. It would look lovely on my sideboard ~ I love the pinecones and the cloves in the oranges. With the greenery, it would work really well for Christmas, too. And the flower-filled pumpkin from Martha is simple and beautiful ~ an elegant addition to any fall table.
Now I just have to decide which one to try. Which would be your pick?



Wishing all of you a little autumn beauty...

I am linking to Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. Stop by for more seasonal (or pink) loveliness.

They are all beautiful, but I think the tiered basket arrangement is my favorite.

Pinterest definitely is a wealth of wonderful inspiration, isn't it?

Have a wonderful day,
Patti

I do not decorate much anymore, but still enjoy seeing what others share.

I've been looking for something to decorate my dining room for Thanksgiving this year. I'd love to keep it on the table but gosh, then there wouldn't be room for the turkey! :0)

Hi Eileen, The centerpieces are all beautiful, but my fave is the tiered one. Happy Pink Saturday. ~Marti

I love the photographs. The tiered basked and mums with fruit are great. I would have a hard time choosing which one I would want to use. I guess I would have to have 2 tables or one of the buffet!

They are all lovely. I'm not sure which one I would choose. Maybe the baskets in the center of my buffet, and little pumpkins with roses and name card at each setting. There I think I will try that. Thx for the ideas.

Love EVERY vignette you have featured but those baskets really did take my eye. This is my first time to your blog and it is charming. Came on over from Pink Saturday and so glad I did. I am now following you.
