Autumn exudes an amazing variety of colorful and textural plants and flowers — the possibilities for the perfect autumn centerpiece are just limitless!
For this inspirational shoot, I wanted to show the different simple ways one can take advantage of all the beauty that autumn offers using some of my favorite vessels from Pottery Barn: the Vintage Wood Footed Bowl, Voluminous Vases and Recycled Glass Vases.
Using these simple and lovely glass vases in different sizes and shapes and this beautiful wooden pedestal, I came up with a few centerpieces that can adorn an autumn table for any occasion — from an escort card table for a wedding, to everyday entertaining.
Here, I used dahlia, amaryllis, ilex, pepper, privette, raspberry and artichoke.
I simply grouped my flowers in a single variety and took advantage of their beauty in their individual vases clustered next to each other.
This wooden pedestal is so lovely that I decided to create a full floral arrangement in it. It’s pretty shallow, so I placed a wooden bowl on top of it and then created an arrangement inside the bowl using a floral frog. I think this makes for a lovely centerpiece or statement piece for pretty much any occasion — don’t you?
Here, I used garden rose, spray rose, ranunculus, poppy, iresine plant (the red leaves), carnation, eucalyptus, nodding abutilon, dusky bells, fuchsia, and firethorn berries.
What’s your favorite autumn centerpiece?
