Four Fun Centerpieces for Halloween and Thanksgiving...

Centerpieces are fun to create for fall!  I thought I'd share some quick, and easy-to-create ideas with you today!

This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading.

There are so many ways to go with fall decorating...
one is to use rustic traditional colors.  
It can take you all the way through the season. 

I love this pinecone votive holder... 

A large twig pumpkin, fall leaves, mini-pumpkins 
and a squirrel add to the traditional feeling...

The Light-Up Pumpkin is a great focal point, 
and has battery-operated lights...

This pretty Glittered Maple Leaves Garland is such a lovely could also be draped along a table 
or hung from a chandelier...

For a spooky Halloween, I kept the Light-Up Pumpkin 
and Pine Cone Votives...and added 
lots of goodies to make a Mad Scientist theme...

Old books and bottles along with creepy creatures and some faux pheasant feathers make for spooky Halloween fun...

And when the lights are is magical. 
So much fun for a party with Halloween costumes!

I created a couple of  Thanksgiving centerpieces, too!  
Adding some gourds and turkeys to the mix 
makes for a traditional Thanksgiving look...

A wood bowl adds a nice focal point...

and lighting adds to the festive holiday feeling.

These Thanksgiving Turkey Wine Tags will help 
to keep track of drinks...just write names on the tags!

And the Leaf Place Card Holders have so many uses...

for placecards, menu markers, decorations, or even to hold photos!

These fun Fall Leaf Bags are perfect for sharing goodies...

The last centerpiece I'm sharing is done in 
fall neutral colors...lots of textures.
Old ironstone pitchers, antlers, dried hydrangea and leaves, with wooden pieces make for a serene setting...

There are so many fun ways to decorate for fall!

  1. Linda, So many cute things. I love that twinkle lighted can be worked into many things. Those leaf card holders would work with photos too. So sweet. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. All the centerpieces look warm and welcoming. Well ok, so maybe I'm the only crazy person that feels warm and welcome when they see a skull, but hey it screams Halloween fun for sure!

  3. What a fun post, Linda. It shows how with a few additions and subtractions you can make things take on a totally different 'feel'. You did a great job. Hope you have a great rest of the week. xo Diana

  16. Oooooo that Halloween centerpiece makes me swoon! You did an incredible job mixing your spooky stuff. Are you guys doing anything for Halloween? Also I love those glitter leaves did you make them? sigh. it's hard to get into the whole fall decorating mood when our temps will be near 90 this week. Mostly sunny and warm days still reminding of summer. :)
