One of the best things about fall is enjoying the warm, cozy meals that come along with the change of weather. My family starts spending less time outside and more time cooking, baking, and sharing dinner with one another. Growing up, my mom always made sure to have a season-appropriate table centerpiece for these occasions. Whether it was a basket of gourds, or a pumpkin nestled in a wreath of leaves, there was a centerpiece to accompany family dinner.
Style Tip #1: Don’t shy away from the spookier colors of the season.
While traditional Halloween colors are black, orange, and yellow, don’t be afraid to incorporate other hues! For a display that isn’t too campy, bring in colors like deep purples and spooky blues. Though not your usual Halloween palette, these colors can still keep your décor edgy for the holiday.

Style Tip #2: Find creative uses for your items.
There is no need to break the bank for items specifically sold as decorative pieces. Chances are, you may have items that can do double duty for a centerpiece display. In this table centerpiece, the candle holder from the Fall box is used for a cookie display, and the spider web tea towel is used as a miniature runner. To complete the look, add the art print from the Halloween add-on box for a spooky vibe!
Style Tip #3: Embrace traditional fall themes and accents.
You can never go wrong with creating a display using the traditional colors of fall! Rich oranges and vibrant yellows brighten any fall table and perfectly accompany cozy fall dinners. Try incorporating vases of fresh mums amongst fresh apples and glass mason jars. The tea towel, art print, and pumpkin from the Fall 2021 box are pictured on this display!
