It’s almost Fall, just one more week! I’m getting ready by making a fun family to-do list of all the things we are going to do this season (coming soon). I also had a lot of fun making two new centerpieces for the house with a really inexpensive bouquet and vases I already had!
So, I found this really great bouquet of faux fall flowers. It has a few small pumpkins, some pine cones, and a variety of leaves and other fall foliage. I couldn’t resist, especially because it was five dollars. I also couldn’t resist, because it has a bit of glitter – the perfect amount of glitter! Not the amount of glitter that makes you put it back on the shelf. You know what I’m talking about, right?! I’m all for glitter and shimmer, but lately I see the glitter poured onto items, making them unbearable to bring home. Because I know as soon as I get it home, I will need to run the vacuum in excess to avoid small pieces of glitter finding their way to my children’s eyes. Ok, end rant, back to the awesome pumpkin mixed bouquet (P.S. I found it at Walmart).
Here is the first centerpiece I made:
I had the chalkboard wine bottles, hurricane vase, and candle (all from Hobby Lobby). I purchased these items last winter and have had a lot of fun changing them each season.
For the wine bottles, I added some of the brown foliage with the pine cones and one leaf each. I love how these look. Ask my husband – I was squealing with delight as I was putting these together!!
For the hurricane vase, I kept the same candle and added some of the leaves and red and gold berries around it.
I love how this one turned out!! Once I finished though, I still had more left from the bouquet, so I decided to make another small centerpiece for my dining room table.
I used the glittery (but not too glittery) pumpkins in the center, placed the votive candles on the two sides, and filled in with the leaves.
I’m even considering some ways I could change this each month of Fall – maybe take the leaves away and add candy corn for Halloween? Or maybe I will add some acorns or nuts for Thanksgiving!
These were two simple ways to take one bouquet and turn it into two beautiful centerpieces for our house this season! Happy Fall! How are you getting ready for Fall around your house? Comment below!
