Fall Centerpiece Ideas: Smashing Pumpkins

When it comes to pumpkins these days, white is the new orange! My favorite centerpiece inspiration photo is this silver wine bucket with a white pumpkin. Perfect for a fall wedding!

Who knew pumpkins could be so elegant! No longer just the traditional orange, the new heirloom green and white pumpkins look wonderful as a fall tablescape centerpiece.

I like the idea of carving out pretty pumpkins and using them as vases.

Without the typical fall colors, wouldn't this table top vignette look wonderful in an all white or neutral room?

Even just a simple gold pumpkin in a rusty urn would look elegant on the table, but also on the mantle.

The same rusty urn with dried hydrangeas. They look wonderful with pumpkins all around.

In fact, hydrangeas and pumpkins look fabulous together, don't you think?

Here is another simple centerpiece idea, crystal cake stands with pale pumpkins under glass.
Very elegant, uncluttered and so easy to create.

Here is a rustic and earthy centerpiece that has a little bit of everything. It would take you all the way to the holidays!

I'm really loving this because I have a similar wooden tray and plan on filling it just like the one above. I already have lots of pine cones, gathered leaves from the maple trees down the street, little pumpkins, gourds, pomegranates, apples and some moss! Just add the candles and done!

What I also like about this centerpiece is that it can all be real. No need for faux here. Everything is found at the grocery store or outside on the ground!

I'm joining Artie at Color Outside the Lines for Vignette Fridays. Be sure to visit his fabulous blog and also check out the other participants for more inspiration.
