Bold & Bountiful: Fall Centerpieces

That fall feeling in finally here, the weather is starting to cool, the leaves are changing, and I for one, am excited to pull out my boots and scarves!  In addition to embracing a new fall wardrobe, I couldn’t be more ready to usher rich autumn colors into my home with cozy throws and pillows, abundant fall florals, and a few home accent pieces that exude the richness and warmth of the season.

If you’ve been following Homefest for a while, you know that one of our favorite design solutions is our collection of “instant centerpieces”… particularly this time of year, when we go from tailgating and pumpkin-clad porches to Thanksgiving feasts to Christmas in a matter of weeks.  Our instant centerpieces are an easy way to update your mantle or table-scape for every holiday and season with a few simple elements.

This year’s selection, if I do say so myself, is one of our best!  With a beautiful centerpiece tray, ranging from shiny metallics to a rustic wood trug, as your base, we’ve curated a collection of hurricanes and votives, seasonal botanical elements, and accent pieces in rich fall colors to create a beautiful fall centerpiece.

The best part is, you can buy the entire centerpiece kit online (with or without the tray, for those of you that already own one).  It’s as easy as that… and it can be easily updated for Christmas or New Years by swapping out a few elements.  So make sure to check back for our holiday centerpieces in the next couple of months!
