Fall Centerpiece Idea

By Karin Brosnan - Wednesday, October 08, 2008



OOOOH How about this! Apples on sticks with branches of fall leaves! (photo is from Country Home Oct. 2007) Simple but so beautiful! I am thinking of adapting this idea for Thanksgiving. Using the apples and leaves but making the centerpiece shorter so you can see over it. Or you could use this centerpiece on your sideboard in the dining room or how about on a table in your entry way to signal that fall has arrived. It is just scrumptious! I also love the mis-matched dining chairs, the golden hued glasses and goblets and of course it doesn't hurt that it is set outside under a a colorful fall tree. I want to be there right now!!!

Love the gigantic glass jars filled with lights.

  2. Oh Kim, I have this exact picture in a photo album. I saved it and look at it often. Too bad we cant eat outside all the time. :)

    Thanks for the comment, I stuffed orange twinkle lights into the back of a large glass bottle (the kind they used to use for office water, before plastic). I found the bottle for a few dollars at a flea market, someone had cut a round hole out of the back to create a terrerium (spelling?). I just put the lights through that and plugged them into an extension chord. No planning whatsoever, I just didnt know what else to do with all those orange lights! :)

  4. Ok, Whoa. That is an AWSOME picture.. so much better than mine. I love them on the floor like that.

    You might check on ebay for glass water bottles, I have two and got them pretty cheap. You could always cut a round hole in the back like the one I found.
