Moving into a new house is exciting because you get to be the first person to decorate it and make the home reflect your own unique style. One way to welcome family and friends to your new home is to host a housewarming party. You can dress up your dining room table for the occasion with the addition of a beautiful fall centerpiece. Here are a few tips on how to create a lovely focal point that incorporates natural elements.
Fruit and Veggie Basket – Fill a basket with yellow & orange fruits and vegetables like mini gourds, golden delicious apples, pears and yellow onions. Throw in a bunch of almonds in the shell, along with cinnamon sticks and some dried flowers and you have a lovely conversation piece that takes just minutes to put together.
Fire and Ice – Create a stunning statement for your dining room table by placing fresh red oak branches in a variety of coastal blue vessels. The contrasting colors will make a dramatic impact and impress your guests.
Cabbage Vase – Swapping out a traditional glass vase for a head of purple cabbage is sure to get your guests talking. For this unique natural centerpiece, hollow out the center of the cabbage and then place wet florist’s foam or a small jar of water inside. Loosely arrange a variety of flowers in the cabbage, and surround the blooms with artichokes, flowering kale or curly lettuce.
Gilded Centerpiece – Add an elegant touch to your new home by adding a brilliant bouquet of flowers to a gilded pitcher. Make the arrangement extra special by lightly spraying roses, dahlias and rose hips with gold glitter paint to complement the pitcher’s shine.
Doorknob Display – Sometimes the best junk-drawer finds can turn into unexpected delights. An old copper doorknob fits the bill in this instance. Simply tuck in some seasonal grasses such as sea oats and voila – you have a fall masterpiece in minutes.
Corn and Candles – Dress up a plain glass jar by filling it with dried corn kernels and then top it off with an “autumn” scented candle like cinnamon.
Pail with Leaves – Create a simple, yet striking centerpiece by arranging some fall leaves in a vintage pail. Use florist’s foam to keep the arrangement in place. For best results, place tall leaves in back and shorter leaves up front.
