Create a harvest-inspired autumn floral centrepiece using faux or fresh flowers. Design a warm and welcoming dinner party, Halloween or Thanksgiving table using spicy-hued fall flowers such as chrysanthemums, carnations, delphiniums, Gerber daisies, roses, asters and anemones. Charming handmade centrepiece arrangements also make thoughtful hostess and housewarming gifts.

Vintage-Inspired Arrangement

Create a stunning autumn-hued floral arrangement using a vintage vessel. Choose an antique porcelain sugar bowl or tea pot featuring gold accents and delicate orange, red and yellow floral designs. Fill the vintage treasure with water and a mix of autumn-inspired flowers, such as burgundy and yellow roses, orange ranunculus, gold chrysanthemums and a few sprigs of red berries. Surround the floral centrepiece with vintage gold candlesticks filled with deep red taper candles, which will cast a soft glow over the dinner table.

Pumpkin Flower Pot

Create a quintessential autumn centrepiece by transforming a pumpkin into a charming flower pot. Cut the top off of a large creamy white or vibrant orange pumpkin and scoop out the insides. Soak a floral foam block in tepid water and place it into the hollowed-out pumpkin. Complete the simple centrepiece by inserting stems of chrysanthemums, baby's breath, asters, harvest-hued carnations and orange roses into the foam to create a fall-inspired bouquet. Enhance the centrepiece by placing several real or fake autumn leaves around it, along with a few natural or gold spray-painted pine cones and apples.

Rustic Wire Basket

Create a rustic, country-inspired centrepiece using autumnal elements. Line a timeworn wire basket with a layer of sheet moss. Fill a small plastic container with a block of water-soaked floral foam and place it in the centre of the basket. Set small gourds and mini pumpkins all around the container, so they can be seen through the sides of the wire basket. Insert stems of orange tulips, sunflowers, bittersweet and burgundy roses into the floral foam. You can accent the basket centrepiece with additional yellow, orange and green gourds and various-sized white and orange pumpkins.
