Between carving jack-o-lanterns and trimming the tree, decorating for Thanksgiving can be an afterthought. Main Street Homes has gathered some fun, fall centerpiece ideas to throw together between holidays. These bountiful arrangements will keep the warm harvest glow in your new home in Richmond VA until the last day of fall!
Nuts abound this time of year and even the ones you don’t eat can make beautiful décor. A collection of acorns makes a fun anchor inside a glass vase or hurricane. Center an orange or yellow pillar candle in the nuts for instant fall ambiance. You can also top the acorns with layers of green split peas, dried Spanish moss and dried white beans for a rustic display.
A combination of bought and found nature can make a lovely table runner for your new home in Richmond VA. Choose bouquets from the market such as miniature orange roses and green spider mums. Split the bouquets and snip them short to make several mixed bud vases down the center of your table. Find fallen leaves like red Japanese maple and yellow ginkgo biloba—their vibrant color and unique shape add visual interest—to interlace on the table with the bud vases and votive candles.
Don’t toss out the pumpkins just yet! White pumpkins wrapped with berry-laden vines such as bittersweet are an unrivaled pair for fall centerpieces. Just wrap the vine a couple of times around the center of the pumpkin and arrange three of them on your table along with tall cylinder vases filled with orange kumquats. As Christmas nears, exchange the bittersweet for a red-berry vine and the kumquats for cranberries.
Edible arrangements are perfect at your new home in Richmond VA this time of year. The crisp colors of apples and pears are ideal accents to other autumn décor and you’ll have them on hand when it’s time to whip up a cobbler! Make a bold statement with these bright fruits when you place them atop a black pedestal. Mix in a few miniature white pumpkins and adorn the base with red and gold leaves. Iron your leaves between wax paper to hold their shape and color a little longer.
