Season of Thanks Blog Hop


In case you are new here, I am an avid gardener who has a major obsession with plants and flowers. Because I love all things green and floral, I am a huge fan of bringing the outdoors in.

Rustic Fall Centerpiece Idea for the Dining Table

A few weeks ago, I shared some easy fall table decor ideas and the response to my centerpiece has been incredible.

You loved it! And so do I!

The warm, rich, earthy and organic tones together with the rustic vibe of the vintage toolbox look really festive for Thanksgiving.

Centerpiece Ideas for the Dining Table

As much as I love live centerpieces, I am a huge fan of making them with faux plants and flowers.

They always look good, add seasonal color, require minimal care and can transform a room within minutes.

I enjoy having a centerpiece on my dining table because it’s one of the first rooms you see when you walk into my home and it just looks so pretty!

Plus, walking by it daily just makes my heart sing.

Centerpieces can be super simple like this one.

Last Thanksgiving, I decorated my centerpiece for the dining table with winter greens and gold pumpkins.

For the holidays, I swapped out the pumpkins and used these adorable Christmas present ornaments.

To change it up for winter, I swapped out the gift ornaments for these gorgeous white textured ornaments.

This spring I decorated my dining table centerpiece with these gorgeous faux magnolias.

And this is how I made the one from my fall tablescape post a few weeks ago.

How to Make This Rustic Fall Centerpiece Idea for the Dining Table

If you want to start making your own faux centerpieces, I suggest buying a few key items each season to slowly build up your stock of faux plant and flowers.

I shared some tips about how to buy faux plants and florals here.

The first step when designing a centerpiece is choosing the container.

I am in LOVE with this vintage toolbox, so that’s what I used.

If the vessel you are using is deeper than a toolbox, you may want to use floral foam to help anchor the faux plants.

Since my toolbox is pretty shallow, I didn’t need to use it.

Before designing a centerpiece, it’s important to consider the thriller, filler and spiller technique for design. It will help drive the direction of how to arrange the plants so it’s aesthetically pleasing.

For this centerpiece design, I am working with a lot of earthy, organic textures so I’m using faux greens, pumpkins, berry sprigs and textured decor.

I started with a green base using these awesome faux bunches. They are really fluffy and big so they fill in the base really well. And because they are so fluffy, they spill over the edge of the toolbox and help anchor the rest of my plants.

I wanted the pumpkins to take centerstage in this design, so I added several neutral pumpkins randomly in the toolbox.

To make the centerpiece come alive and add more texture and height, I tucked in these gorgeous faux berry sprigs. I’ve used these in a few different arrangements and love how they look.

To add a more interest, I tucked in these cute earthy fall potpourri pieces and pinecones. Since they were from a bag of potpourri they smell really good too!

Now that the days are getting shorter, I added these pretty fairy lights too to add some ambiance at night. They are battery-operated with a timer so they go on and off automatically.
