Super simple centerpieces and stress-free decorations for fall elegance.
Add charm to a wheat wreath with golden maple leaves. Slip the stems of the leaves into the spaces between the wheat heads. This arrangement looks best done in a spare manner so the shapes of individual leaves aren't lost. When the leaves fade, remove them and save the wreath to use again next fall.
Create a stress-free centerpiece by setting several pumpkins or gourds on the table. This arrangement contains them on a long white platter, but a low basket or tray would work just as well. Garnish with a few leaves, berry clusters, or flowers to add a bit of color and texture.
Consider this simple approach to fall decorating: take one object and repeat it along a shelf or window sill, or down your dining room table. Surround each item with something special -- a circle of beaded garland (as shown here), some fall leaves, pinecones, or even a toss of little acorns.
Summer's big color gets bright and intense in fall. The hot chartreuse of Granny Smith apples declares the effect. Nest a stocky candle in the middle of a glass salad or punch bowl filled with green apples. No need to use a tall candle; simply elevate a short one with a candlestand or aluminum can. Then hide the stand with apples.
Fall branches make wonderful -- and cheap -- decorations for your home. Look for interesting shapes with leaves, acorns, or berries.
Here's an object that will look in season from October through December. Pinecones have a natural, rustic appeal that can also be dressed up by combining them with ornaments, ribbons, or garlands.
Both sophisticated and country, this white pumpkin has been elevated to designer status with a swoosh of black paint and a unique footed cake stand.
