Fall Table Decorations That Will Be the Hit of Your Party
The Surprisingly Easy Centerpiece
This 25-minute centerpiece might look professional, but it’s quicker (and easier) than you might think.
Fill an oval container with potting soil. Plant a variety of succulents in the middle of the container. Be sure to leave plenty of space around the edges. Tuck in tiny pumpkins, seasonal veggies like kale, radishes, and fresh herbs to fill gaps. Scatter additional tiny pumpkins and votives on the table around the arrangement.
Floating Miniature Pumpkins
To make the votive, use a craft knife to trace circles slightly larger than the bottom of a tea light in the miniature pumpkins. Carve them out and tuck the candle inside.
Making this 10-minute fall centerpiece is a cinch when you follow our step-by-step directions. Get the tutorial below.
Rustic Fall Display
If you don’t have a few extra antlers to spare, you can create this arrangement without them. Tuck in pinecones and assorted nuts, but make sure the pumpkins are the real star.
Don’t neglect your coffee table when it comes to decorating for your fall party. We love these floral pumpkins. Use cut mums, a soft-skinned pumpkin, and an awl (pointed tool) to get the look. Keep the floral pumpkins in your refrigerator until party time to help extend their shelf life.
Pumpkin Place Card
Place cards couldn’t be simpler when all you need to do is put a name tag on a miniature pumpkin. We love how simply this table is dressed: elegant white china, white linen napkins, mismatched glassware, and a few cut branches bursting with fall color.
Don’t forget your outdoor spaces when you’re decorating for a party—even if most of the entertaining will take place indoors. Get the tutorial at the link below.
Skip the glass vase and use a pumpkin instead! Carve a hole in the pumpkin and fill with your favorite fall flowers. You can also place a piece of floral foam within the pumpkin cavity if you want a more arranged look.
This petite planter is easy as 1-2-3 when you follow our step-by-step instructions. If you keep it watered it should last about a week.
Any of the pumpkin planters we’ve shown in this roundup are fair game for this centerpiece, but there is one unique idea here that we love: antique books add height and interest under a few of the planters and votives. Keep some of the pumpkins and votives on the table so all of your elements are at varying heights.
