For many people, the first thing that comes to mind when that initial cold chill arrives in the air is…Halloween. While the holiday definitely dominates the coming cold season, fall itself provides an endless number of inspirations when it comes to decorating your home. From changing leaves to the bold, warm colors that set fall uniquely apart—there is much to be taken from the outside and brought in when it comes to giving your home a seasonal boost. Let us at My Wonderful Walls help.

One of the best ways to give your home a warm, autumn flair is to add a great fall centerpiece to your dining room or kitchen table. This is an easy way to bring the best parts of fall into your home and share the joy with friends and family! Here are a few of our favorite ideas when it comes to creating a fall centerpiece to remember.

Sweet and sophisticated seasonal décor
Fall comes with color, but it also arrives with tasty treats. What better way to celebrate the season than with a candy corn vase? Simply fill a clear mason jar with candy corn, or your favorite October treat, and add a few colorful flower topers to finish it off. Not only will this centerpiece look great in your home, but it will get your guest’s taste buds talking the minute they walk in!

Personalize your pumpkins
Not every pumpkin of fall is destined to be a Jack-O-Lantern. In fact, some of those pumpkins you pick could be the perfect fall centerpiece for your home! Personalizing a pumpkin with your family monogram gives it a decorative kick, and makes it the perfect centerpiece for your table. Combine the pumpkin with some warm candles and fake leaves to create a fabulous fall scene right in your home.

Be prepared to bedazzle
Fall is fun, but when it comes to creating your centerpiece, feel free to make it fancy. Bedazzling a centerpiece of red or orange fruits is a great and easy way to take a simple centerpiece to dazzling with nothing more than a glue gun and some rhinestones. Create a variety of glittering patterns directly on the fruit to gain a gleaming centerpiece with seasonal sparkle.

Light up the table
While the nip in the air is only a taste of the cold to come, fall still leaves people snuggling in their sweaters that have been packed away all summer long. In celebration of warm fires and hot cocoa that are waiting just around the corner, use a lamp and candle to adorn your table as a centerpiece. Small lamps with candle doors allow you to switch out your candle as the season progresses, and when placed amidst some colorful leaves, can set a warm and comforting tone at your table.

Bring in the branches
Sometimes all it takes is a few well-placed branches to set the seasonal tone of your centerpiece. Simple pick some fresh branches with colorful leaves, and arrange them in a clear vase. The simplicity of this project is enough to evoke autumn inspiration for your family and guests.
