Natural Fall Centerpiece

9.29.2013

I know most of y'all may be getting tired of seeing fall this and fall that, but the first day of fall was official just a few days ago and I am just starting to add my fall decor while y'all are probably moving on to Christmas.( wink ) When I add the look of fall I like to add natural items that represent the season as much as possible. I used real pumpkins, dried hydrangeas from my bush, dried pods that I saved from last year, acorns, boo pumpkins, dried gourds and a few preserved leaves.









I love this blush colored pumpkin mixed with the blues and greens of the dried hydrangeas.

Squirrels, the little varmints that chew on our house, say fall to me, too since I see them scurrying around burying nuts for the winter season.



The grape vine is not real, but I love this piece I found at a home decor shop last year. It is bendable and can add texture in so many places. I just draped it across the top. I need to go back to the store and see if she has anymore.

I'm not hosting Thanksgiving this year, but if I did all I would have to do is set the table and be done.


All of these items are piled in the large wood slatted bottom tray my daughter gave me last year.



I will share more pictures from my trip soon.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the start of "Fall Around the House" with a dozen bloggers.

See you there!

  1. I'm late with my fall decorating this year, so I Iook forward to seeing what everyone is doing. I'm excited. I like how you used the grain sack down the center of the table. Peace and blessings.

  8. So pretty Kim! I have not even started fall decorating. I usually wait until Oct 1st. My fall stuff stays up until the day after Thanksgiving, so I don't like to start in September. It is usually too summery for me that early.

  18. I love each element here-especially the tray your daughter gave you! You've got such a good eye for color and texture. I am one that is not pleased this year to see so many Christmas items out in stores-I'll be ready in a month but just not yet.
    Hugs, Noreen

  22. It looks absolutely gorgeous, Kim. You are right- all you would have to do is set the table and you would be set. The slatted tray from your daughter is the perfect grounding piece for everything. xo Diana

  23. This is just incredibly gorgeous! I just finished mine and now I want to totally change it after seeing yours. I am on the hunt for some pretty blue hydrangea already though. I'm in envy of your great deal on the pumpkins too, I priced them out at the garden center the other day and I think that wheelbarrow full would have cost about $200 here! Looking forward to seeing all of your yummy treasures from France.

  24. Wow, Kim, that is gorgeous! I am going to pin it, but I doubt that mine would ever look that good! I like natural elements, too, when decorating. The wooden tray is so pretty - I'd love one of those! Your daughter has great taste, like her mom, I'm guessing!

  31. Love, love the arrangement! Like a few others, I would love to know where the squirrel dish came from... I really really like it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I bought the squirrel dish somewhere last year. Sorry, guys.

  33. I really like the natural things best, but it is not always available. I am just now getting it done, too. I have about decide the whole thing is more trouble than it is worth! I am exhausted.
