I love simple.
If something is simple, frugal & beautiful, I’m a happy girl. Especially when it comes to decorating. I’m always on the lookout for easy ideas for centerpieces and seasonal decorating tips that don’t take weeks or a big budget to put together. I only have the time and patience these days for maybe a five minute project.
These centerpieces from Better Homes & Gardens are right up my alley. Set some flowers or veggies on a dish and voila, you have a centerpiece. Does it get any easier than this?
Or skip the dish and put some gourds on a window sill surrounded by garland. Easy!
This next one is extra fancy. Combine sticks with lemons in water. Looks like it took you all day to create!
Last year I really had a thing for white pumpkins. How long would it take to set one on a pedestal? I would probably skip the painting on it to save some time, but if you are the crafty sort, you could handle that project. You might even be able to create that design with a Sharpie!
I thought this next one was super cool looking. Branches are so versatile. I love this idea.
Cute and clever to use coffee beans to give the vase a nice texture! I love the idea of lining double vases with things like shells or berries to create an interesting visual. It is easy but makes you look like a creative genius.
Last fall I used apples in a apothecary jar as a centerpiece. Do note that if you keep the lid on you will be inadvertently making applesauce.
Finally, check out this ingenious idea for turning mismatched stemware into a centerpiece! I really love the idea of using what you already have to create something new. Blogger Kim from A Soft Place To Land created this clever Fall centerpiece from an idea she found on the Rachael Ray website. I LOVE IT!
Are you gearing up for fall decorating?
I’ll be there so don’t leave me to chat by myself.
