I want to show a simple, natural centerpiece you can create that will brighten up your living room for fall!
I collected branches that had beautiful yellow leaves out of my front yard, grabbed an old barn tray (to act as my base), a collection of pillar candles, and a bag of pinecones.
You don't have to use a tray for your base, you can also use vintage crates, shallow baskets or decorative bowls. Make sure your base is shallow, or else it will not display your candles and filler well.
I clipped off smaller branches and set them in my tray along the edges, making sure I left plenty of room in the center for my candles.
I then placed the pillar candles in a cluster at the center of the tray.
The last touch is to add the pinecones. I placed mine in the gaps between the branches of leaves.
After the pinecones were placed, I added a few small branches to fill any holes.
Ta-Da! A nice display of nature's colors and textures! In the evening, this will create a cozy, festive feeling in your living room.
If you don't have changing leaves where you live, you could easily use wheat, corn husks, or berry branches. Use your imagination and I know you can create something wonderful!
I added some other pictures that might help inspire you to create a festive centerpiece.
This blogger used faux berry branches and an ornamental pumpkin.

This is a great example that shows you can use almost anything for your base.
