Thanksgiving is right around the corner. If you’re like me, you’ve got a lot of family coming into town, and chances are you’re hosting everyone at your place. Whether that’s your case or not, there’s no denying that it’s fun to get a little festive every once in awhile. Especially this time of year. So here are a few of our favorite DIY fall centerpiece ideas and themes.
An Eclectic Table
Think boho chic meets farmer’s market. It’s all about texture if you’re going for the eclectic look. Experiment with different textures, shapes, and sizes. Use different goblets and glasses with varying heights and colors. Sprinkle a bit of greenery here and there. Consider mis-matched napkins. If you do it right, it will all come together and look effortlessly intentional. If you’re worried about things getting too messy, keep a color palette in mind as your plan your centerpiece and table setup.
Thinks nudes. There are at least 50 shades of beige, right? Texture is key here, too. Use a few different textures to help break up your neutrals. Or stick with a simple, neutral runner and add in a few small white and tan gourds here and there. Perhaps add a touch of color with some natural greenery in the middle of your table. If there are still leaves on the trees where you live, clip a few branches. If not, consider creating your own branch centerpiece. Both can be equally elegant and simple.
All about Florals
Okay, there are so many different directions you can go with florals. There are two trends this year that we can’t get enough of, though. Marigolds, delicate orange roses, and dinner plate sized dahlias are classic for fall. Orange is autumn. But pair it with blue? That’s magic. Personally, I’m a big fan of blue hydrangeas. The soft blue looks exceptionally elegant with oranges. We’re also loving florals paired with gold. We love the challenge of blending floral pastels with fall hues and matte gold!
