Autumn centrepieces decor ideas

Hello everyone!

A week ago, I posted some ideas for ways to bring autumn (fall) into your home. I love the colours of autumn and the idea of bringing them indoors through seasonal decor. Today I prepared a few simple ideas; I want to give you a little inspiration by sharing some beautiful autumn centrepieces. Each one is easy to recreate and will bring cosy autumn vibes to your dining table, coffee table or sideboard.

A centrepiece that showcases autumn leaves is a perfect way to bring the season's colours indoors. Cut some leaf-filled branches to create a simple and stunning autumn centrepiece.

Sunflowers usually bloom in the summer but are often used in autumn arrangements because of their rich golden colour.

Chrysanthemums (Mums)

In some European countries, including Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Malta and Spain, mums symbolise death and grief. Mums are only given in time of mourning. But, on the other hand, in the UK and US chrysanthemums symbolise cheerfulness, joy, optimism, and longevity

If you live in a country that does not associate this beautiful autumn flower with death, you should use it in your centrepiece. Mixing chrysanthemums with herbs and twigs will give the arrangement a more rustic charm.


Pumpkin vase

Use a real or fake pumpkin to create a pumpkin vase centrepiece. Add the flowers and leaves of your choice.

Dried foliage

If you're looking for a clean and trendy autumn-inspired arrangement, you will love dried leaves, flowers and wheat arrangements.

Amber vases

Amber glass is the perfect finish to use in fall centrepieces. Try arranging several amber glass vases together, then add fall foliage to each one. You could also bring out the rich orangey gold glow of the glass by adding fairy lights.

Seasonal fruits and nuts

If you don't want to use flowers or foliage, you could assemble a centrepiece of seasonal fruits and nuts.

Nut-filled glass vases 

Glass vases filled with nuts such as acorns, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc. You could add a candle in the middle to make a low-maintenance, long-lasting centrepiece.

I tried to include a few different centrepieces that though being autumn-inspired, do not necessarily look like Halloween or Thanksgiving decor. I believe these decorations would look good in any home, even in countries that do not celebrate Thanksgiving!
