Simple Fall Centerpiece With A Chalkboard Table Runner

I love this time of year. Although I’ve been working on fall projects for a month now, November is really the time to enjoy it. I love preparing for and celebrating Thanksgiving. It’s such a fun time to be together with family and just reflect on all that the Lord has blessed us with. In preparation for Thanksgiving I’ve dressed up my table with a Simple Fall Centerpiece. It’s fun to enjoy it for the whole month and not just the few days surrounding Thanksgiving. You get more bang for your buck this way :)

You could put anything in them from flowers to dry beans for fall. Then, you can do something new for Christmas. It’s a great way to decorate on a budget!

I love this chalkboard table runner because it became that way by accident. I built this framed chalkboard to hang in my family room. I brought it in from my garage to add hardware for hanging and I just really loved the way it looked on the table so I quickly switched gears. It’s funny how stuff like that happens when your on a project marathon and having a zillion things going on at one time!

I still intend on using it as a hanging chalkboard in my living room after Thanksgiving, but for now it’s on loan to my fall centerpiece.

Sometimes in the busyness of life, it’s easy to forget all that we have to be grateful for. I love that I can glance over at my table and quickly be reminded of Thanksgiving and the meaning of the day.

Be sure to swing by on Monday for the chalkboard tutorial! I’ll even show you where it’s hanging when it’s not acting as a table runner!

Simple Fall Centerpiece

Can you believe fall is here already? In several of the places we’ve lived there was no such thing as fall (looking at you Hawaii). And while it doesn’t quite feel like fall yet, all of the fall decorations in the stores and the inspiration on the blogosphere have really gotten me into the spirit.

I put together this romantic centerpiece using a lot of items I already had with a couple new things mixed in.

For the ultimate fall feel I put some pinecones in a glass hurricane (can you believe I had to actually buy these pinecones?). I filled a couple mason jars with different things. One has a few glittered pumpkins. The other has dried putka pods, which I had never seen before but are perfect for fall. For a little embellishment I used some gold lace ribbon. The pillars I’ve had for years. They used to be black but I spray painted them white a few months ago. They are so versatile, they are always in use somewhere in the house. For the runner I just added a few fabric rosettes to a strip of burlap.

This centerpiece has such a romantic feel to me with the white pillars, fabric rosettes, and lace ribbon detail.

See how simple that is? Because I used what I already had, the total cost was approximately $11.00 give or take a few cents. I’m so pleased with the way it turned out, classic, romantic, and it is definitely feeling a bit more like fall around here.
