When I think of fall /autumn centerpieces, I always think of 'abundance'.
While I love simplicity, when it comes to this time of year, I just love heaps of stuff.
Probably for that same reason, healthy eating goes out the window, and I start making Chex Mix once a week, and wonder by Christmas why my jeans don't fit so well!
(..."but I work out every week??" ;) )
This year, I decided to continue my neutral theme for fall- less oranges, more whites- and this is what I have.
I picked up a few small white pumpkins and some gourds. I started with a table runner that had the green stripe- this room has pale green walls, so it ties in nicely with that. Since the table and chairs are so dark, I didn't want to do beige and have everything disappear.
The base for the three pumpkins is a drink tub I got at Target a couple years ago. I wish I would've bought two now. I'd use it for a planter, if we didn't need it all the time for entertaining!
The tub is filled up with crumpled up paper grocery bags- they were sturdy enough to hold up the weight of the pumpkins, and then I just filled around them with the moss. It hides the bags.
The rest of the table got a smattering of leaves, pumpkins pepperberries and gourds. And a couple mercury glass votives.
Simple and bountiful.
Now, I'm off to make one of our favorite fall desserts! I will share the treat tomorrow with you. It's yummy and rich.
My hubby has been bugging me all week to make it!
Have a great Thursday!
