Easy Fall Centerpiece
Hi Everyone, Tammy here from One More Time Events. Today I would like to share how I put together my Pre-Fall arrangement. I know it still is a little early, but if you follow me over at One More Time Events you will see why I am a little early putting up my Fall decorations, also if you are interested in furniture refinishing techniques you can also see that there as well.
Now back to how I put my Fall Arrangement together. First, I would like to share that most of my arrangements are done in a semi-permanent fashion. Meaning it’s permanent until I take it apart.
The main reason I do this is…: I like to be able to recycle and re-purpose most of my items used in the arrangements.
Setting up the Arrangement …
To create this arrangement on my newly refinished buffet, I wanted height as well as length and be the centerpiece of my fall setting. I collected some of my glass cylinders along with a couple of metal pedestals.
Picking Your Fall Color Hues
Picking and choosing some of my fall colored pumpkins and a few Fall-like faux flowers.
This year I wanted to stay more on the softer tones along with a pop of purple.
Rather than staying with the traditional bold colors of Fall, you can use whatever colors you choose. My color picks for this year’s Fall include: butternut, soft yellows, tans, soft olive green and a purple pastel.
How to Compose an Abundant Fall Centerpiece
To start out the pedestals were stacked the smaller one to the back of the larger pedestal creating a stair step base, I then arranged the glass cylinders some off an some on the pedestals. If you notice the shorter vase on the top left of the arrangement.
This one will serve as a pedestal for my yellow pumpkin allowing more height to the arrangement.
Because I wanted this arrangement to flow downward to embracing each pumpkin as main focal points I placed each one of them on the in the corners of the pedestals The top one on top of the small glass cylinder to add more height.
Playing Around, till I get an Arrangement that I like
Taking the largest flower ~ in this case hydrangeas ~ I placed them in the glass cylinders and then began filling in the arrangement tucking some in the gaps of the pumpkins and inside the gaps of the pedestals.
Until I reached an arrangement that I liked.
When doing this I play around with the same like colors of flowers by placing the largest ones first and filling in with the smaller ones. I added the "pop" of color purple last to add interest and highlight the others that are more in line of the same colors.
Enlarging Vignette Impact
To add length to this vignette I add a couple of hurricane vases with candles at each end.
And then, there you have it: an purple DIY Fall vignette that will fill your home with subtle elegance, abundance and joy.
Thank you for letting me to share this easy Fall centerpiece. I hope you all enjoyed it!
