Fall Centerpiece Love



Oh fall, I just love you even though you're so unreliable and short...  good thing you're not a man or you'd be in real trouble. hehehe ;)

When I say unreliable I'm talking about this past week, on the first day of fall it was 95 degrees... yes, 95 scorching degrees and no, I do not live in the south but pretty close to Lake Michigan! 

Fall days are supposed to be cool, crisp, open the windows and air out the house kind of weather.  Unfortunately, it seems like there are only a few perfect fall days a year, we go from running the air conditioning to running the heater seemingly overnight... that's what I mean by short.

But, I still love it.  I mean loooooove it.  I love those perfect fall days, the beautiful colors of the trees, the trips to the pumpkin patch, apple cider, pumpkin cake, cookies, bread, seeds, etc., and most of all, the decor!

I've been hauling out my pumpkins since September 1st.  This is a little early for me because the heat just doesn't make me feel very fallish.  But, I decided since fall is so short (and unreliable, remember?!) I'm going to enjoy my pumpkins from Septemeber through November! 

Because it seems to be the "in" thing to do (and it doesn't cost any money) I decided to reinvent some of the fall stuff I already have.  Today I'll share my "new" fall centerpiece. 

I got a giant cloche on clearance at Hob Lob this summer.  I've been dying to use it but haven't had the right space for it.  I busted out my huge-mongous cake stand that I got after Christmas one year at Wal-Mart for $3 and  (then realized I will never ever make a cake that big).  I then did the happy dance because the giant cloche actually fits on the huge-monguous Wal-Mart platter! 

Now, what to put under the cloche, obviously a pumpkin, but which one?!?  I love my squatty white pumpkin but it's so short (like fall).  It would be lost under the giant cloche.  What to set it on... I remembered a candleholder base I had, it worked perfect!
 


Then just topped it off with my old fall wreath.  And my lovely centerpiece is finished!




Are you reinventing your old fall decor this year?  What are you coming up with??

  2. Fall is DEFINITELY my favorite time of the year as well. I always look soooo forward to it and I am soooo sad when it is gone. I busted out my fall decor the first of Sept as well.

    I love the centerpiece! Looks beautiful!

  3. I totally love your cloche, I have one the same size and I love that you can put some of the larger things in it. Your pumpkin on the stand is fantastic. The wreath is the crowning touch. What a gorgeous centerpiece. Love, love, love it. Hugs, Marty

  11. Very pretty! I can't believe that it is that hot up north! We are hot (95) here in SC but we are use to it. I am flying to Cincy this week and Saturday morning it is going to be 43 degrees. I WILL NOT miss the weather up there. LOL!

  16. Oooooh, that turned out so pretty!! I completely understand what you mean about not feeling like fall. I do live in the south & it's been in the 90's with the usual 150% humidity. There's nothing fall like about it!!

  18. What a great cloche and how perfect that it fit on your Walmart cake stand. The pumpkin and wreath additions make a TERRIFIC centerpiece! Love it when something that was so simple to put together looks that fantastic!

    I think Imma hafta copy that idea.
    Thank you for the inspiration!!
    I had none, as it has been 95+ here, too, until 2 days ago.
    This morning I have the windows open, and there's a fantastic Fall breeze! Yum! I will enjoy its brief sojourn here, however unreliable and short :)
    Hugs, sweetie!
