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 FacebookInstagram, 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!

  7. 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?

  11. Sarah,

    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!

  • Went shopping today for “nice” clothes & came home with a bunch of cozy sweatshirts & yoga pants! #oops 🙈 I can’t help it, I just love my comfies. This top is my favorite find from the day & it’s currently on sale 🙌🏻🙌🏻 http://liketk.it/2zrB5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • “Surround yourself with people who think the way you want to think”. ✨✨
__  One of my goals this year is to read one book a month. I know that probably sounds pathetic to any of you avid readers in the group, but it’s a good little goal for me & I’m excited about it. This month I’m reading “You’re a Badass” by Jen Sincero & I LOVE it so far.  Here’s one of my favorite passages in the book: — “When you hang out with whiners, pessimists, tweeters, bleachers, freakers-outers and life-is-so-unfairers, it’s an uphill climb to keep yourself in a positive headspace. Stay away from people with tiny minds and tiny thoughts and start hanging out with people who see limitless possibility as the reality. Surround yourself with people who act on their big ideas, who take action on making positive change in the world and who see nothing as out of their reach.” —  BOOM. 🙌🏻🙌🏻 So true, right?! Cheers to my fellow dreamers & visionaries. Don’t let anyone hold you back. 👊🏻
  • I’ve had so many questions about how these @walmart recliners are holding up & I can honestly say we are LOVING them so far. We’ve only had them a little over a month, but so far so good. I’ll probably do a full review for you guys soon, so stay tuned for that if you’re interested. In other news I have a new VLOG up today. Follow along as I go to Target, buy all the organizing things & take on the hot mess situation in my kitchen cabinets 😬😬 The link is in my profile.
  • Home from my hair appointment & I practically begged my husband to stand outside in a freezing (and windy) snow storm to snap a few photos of me. We somehow managed to get one decent shot, but you have to swipe right to see the outtakes #weareprofessionals 🤣🤣 happy Friday guys!! 🙌🏻 http://liketk.it/2zpyb #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • This afternoon I planned to work during nap time, but instead I spent an hour laying in bed with this girl chatting about how she’s going to have a house right next door to me when she grows up. We talked about how we’re going to be best friends forever & about how she loves the color pink. I snapped this photo to send to my husband & I had no plans of posting it here, but this is a moment I wish I could stay in forever. This is what I live for & it’s these simple moments that fill my soul & put everything into perspective for me. Motherhood is such a gift—the good days, the hard days & everything in between. I’m so grateful for it all. ❤️
  • It was nice enough to have the windows open this afternoon, so I happily soaked in all that sunshine & fresh air. Is it too soon to get excited about spring?!☀️🙌🏻 In other news I’ve been organizing & cleaning like a mad woman today. I just finished our cabinets/pantry & they look SO much better. Next up is the fridge, I’m just working up the courage to go in there. Maybe I’ll leave that job to my husband 🤣🤣 Who else is organizing all the things right now? 🙋‍♀️ http://liketk.it/2znnE #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
