Fall is here and we couldn’t be more excited! And nothing brings fall into your home like a beautiful fall centerpiece. So we have rounded up some easy natural centerpiece ideas below. Many of them use items from just right outside your door. Happy making!
The first idea below comes from a gothic inspired tablescape I did in conjunction with Steff from On a Wing and a Whim Blog. She created the tablecloths which were perfect for Halloween. You can head to her blog to read how to make these. The pumpkins I painted and the tablecloth is from Oriental Trading. Read on to see the lovely display.
Fall Centerpiece Tips
TIP: If you use fresh stems or branches be sure to trim the stems every few days and change out the water. You can also add a TB of sugar to the water. Store your fresh centerpieces in a cool place out of direct sunlight if possible.
TIP: If you have allergies, many of these centerpieces can supplement with silk flowers and look just as great!
Fall Centerpiece Inspiration
1. DECOPAUGE FLORAL PUMPKINS GOTHIC TABLE (Pictured Above)
Head over to this post to get the free printables for the decoupage pumpkins. Once you have made the pumpkins take the vases and greenery and arrange along your table. You can classic gothic ornate plate ware and gourds.
See the original post here with free Thanksgiving placemats, name cards, and a fall banner.
Use a planter box or other container and place floral foam at the bottom. Cut the foam to fit the container and so it does not overflow the top. Take some moss and cover the floral foam. From there mix bright florals and succulents.
4. SUNFLOWER GARDEN PEDESTAL
To make this centerpiece you will need a cake platter, greenery, sunflowers, and garden veggies. Arrange the elements on the table starting with the greenery so the stems are inward. Then cover the stems with the gourds. Last, add the sunflowers.
This one is simple and just uses a medium pumpkin as the vase. Cut the top of the pumpkin. Fill the cut pumpkin and you can place floral foam inside to keep the flowers fresh. From there arrange the flowers coming out of the pumpkin.
6. FALL APOTHECARY JAR
I’ve always been obsessed with apothecary jars and using them for fall. Gather fall acorns and fill the vase. Ad a tied ribbon to the top and place the jar on a square of fabric or burlap.
This is a fun take on the traditional pumpkin centerpiece. You add greens around the medium green and white pumpkins. Top off with some tea lights around the cluster and it’s done.
I love a simple display. For this one you will need a green vine or eucalyptus leaves. From there intermix candles and apples. So simple and elegant. You can also bore out the top of the apples to use them as vases.

10. FALL LEAVES IN A VASE
Take the vase and fill half with water and a little sugar. Then fill the vases with the newly clipped fall branches with leaves, make sure the branches aren’t too tall for your vases. This centerpiece is great because you can add so much it’s really a base. You can add burlap runners, ribbons around the vase, add fall leaves around the vase, etc.
Happy fall my friends. Hopefully one of these centerpieces inspired you for the season and with Thanksgiving coming up. Here’s some more from our gothic Halloween shoot below.
