The Centerpiece

When it comes to fall decorating (well really all seasonal decorating) I like subtle things that evoke the feeling rather than Jack-O-Lanterns, witches, and black cats. Don't get me wrong I thing there are a lot of seasonal decorations that are really cute - there just not me. Here are a few ideas for subtle centerpieces.

A bowl of fall fruit or gourds

Fall leaves or flowers in a simple vase

A few cute little pumpkins on a tray. I love these white pumpkins.

An interesting plant or seed pods.

  1. Refreshing! I like the white pumpkins - never seen them before like that! Cool stuff!

  2. Subtle is good. I like the table decoration in the third picture. White pumpkins is a great change from orange ones :)

  5. I totally agree, a hint of the season is just enough. We do have eclectic tastes indeed. I notice that your decor selection has a strong Japanese influence in the subtle flowers and bamboo tables. It is a calming look.
