Take Your Inspiration from the Outdoors
As cooler temperatures become more common, leaves from the trees have begun to turn brighter colors. Many plants, both perennials, and annuals have slowly died back. Soon, they will become dormant for the Winter. Your outdoor surroundings are the best place to take your fall inspiration from. The glorious outdoor colors and settings are what we love to imitate and bring indoors.
During the Fall, pumpkins, gourds, apples, and acorns have all ripened. Ready for harvesting. If you are lucky enough to live in a farming community or near one, the season brings hayrides, fresh warm apple cider, and loads of family fun. These are the many fall activities that inspire us. And it is these images, memories, and family outings that we hope to recreate inside the home. Bring smiles to your family and guests with a centerpiece that reminds us of those special moments we treasure. A centerpiece that conveys to your friends that you are grateful they dropped by.

Create a centerpiece that is warm, with neutral fall colors. In this elegant, neutral setting, the designer used a linen embroidered runner beneath her centerpiece. A set of three black-tiered candlesticks stand in contrast to the surrounding warm, neutral colors. The centerpiece is a woven basket filled with an assortment of pumpkins with fall foliage tucked beneath. Well done!
Make Your Yarn White Pumpkins Standout
