Neutral Fall Centerpiece

Hi friends! Today’s post is all about a neutral fall centerpiece that I’ve been loooooving in our breakfast nook lately. And even better, this post is part of a fun home tour I’m doing with a group of talented bloggers and we’re all sharing purdy fall decor. How fun is that?! If you’re joining me from Laura with Junque Cottage, or any of the other blogs on our tour, welcome! I’m thrilled to have you here today. Come on in and get comfy, I’ll start the coffee.

I wanted to keep this centerpiece simple and practical since we use this table allllll the time. It’s basically the command center of our home. We eat here (obviously), the kids do craft projects, I have my morning and afternoon coffee here, and half the time this is where I’m working on the blog. It’s a high traffic spot, so I wanted to make a centerpiece that could stay here all the time and not get in the way. This was the perfect fit.

I’ve been absolutely obsessed with copper candles lately–they’re just so darn perfect for fall. These are from WildLust Wicks and I’m crazy about them. They don’t even need to be lit to make the whole room smell like heaven.

Believe it or not I found this old dough bowl at a large yard sale/flea market thingy in a school parking lot earlier this spring. I think I paid one dollar for it. I mean, how does that even happen in real life? I’m still amazed.

I’ll be honest with you. I have no clue what these stems are called with the little white balls. No idea whatsoever. All I know is that I found them at Michael’s in the fall decor section and I thought they were pretty so I bought them and went on my merry way.

I feel like I could post 10 more shots of this little centerpiece. I just love the combination of the copper with the white pumpkins and that old wooden dough bowl. Simple and easy, just the way I like it. Be sure to let me know what you think and definitely say hi if you’re new around here–I always LOVE hearing from you fabulous people that read my blog! And I’d be thrilled to have you join me over on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Ok, now grab a snack and be sure to stop by the other blogs in our home tour to see even more more purdy fall decor. Enjoy!

    I love the way all the colors and textures blend together and the copper candles are just the right touch. I agree – this is the perfect centerpiece!

    A dough bowl has been on my list for a while and you styled yours perfectly! I don’t know the name of the ball stems either, but they look great! haha. Love your appreciation for fall neutrals- just beautiful!

    This space is beautiful with that centerpiece as the highlight!! Totally makes me want to grab a cup of coffee and take a seat at that fun farmhouse bench. Did you paint that table yourself? I have a table painted like that and I need to seal it. If you did it yourself, can you tell me what you used to seal it?

    Okay, can I say how jealous I am that you actually bought a dough bowl for A DOLLAR??! Wow! It is gorgeous – and that was a steal! And I love the way you styled it, too. Casual, natural, and simple but still seasonal and fresh!

    Thanks again for joining us for our fall tour!

    Your centerpiece is beautiful and fits your space so well. A dollar for that dough bowl, amazing. I got a round one about 10 years ago at a garage sale for $5. The lady said it was her mothers but it wasn’t her style so she was selling it. I use it all the time.

      Wow Becky, that’s a great find too! It’s funny how we go crazy over them and some people don’t see their beauty. Thanks for stopping by!
