Terra Cotta and Pumpkins...My Fall Centerpiece

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Terracotta and Pumpkins Fall CenterpieceToday I am sharing my centerpiece for the breakfast room table…terracotta and pumpkins for fall! It was really simple to put together…I just added a few of my favorite projects to some of my favorite elements! And I'm keeping it really low-key this year since there will not be many visitors in my home.



CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Terracotta and Pumpkins Fall CenterpieceAnd the inspiration for it all…my new favorite for fall…terracotta! It adds texture and a rustic look that complements that fall feeling! And it was so easy…I just left the mums in their pots, wrapped them in burlap and popped them into my terracotta container. And if it looks slightly familiar…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Collecting Clay Cookers …it’s because it’s not a planter at all, but one of my clay cookers! See it there…the one with the hen on top? lol They make great planters because they are glazed on the inside so there are no leaks! That one is only decorative for me anyway and not the one I actually cook with. You can see more about my collection of clay cookers here.

I filled the cloche with acorns as a base and topped them off with baby pumpkins. 

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Terracotta and Pumpkins Fall CenterpieceI added my no-sew shirt pumpkins for a touch of whimsy…another fun and easy project that even the kids could help you do! I love the way the jute twine tendrils and the burlap leaves add even more texture!

I loved that so much that I decided not to even try. Funny, huh?

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Terracotta and Pumpkins Fall Centerpiece …because these guys have even grown together! They were in the very last bag of baby pumpkins at Walmart…rejected by all of the other shoppers. I know…I’m strange! I just love them!

Believe it or not, I am still finishing up my fall decorating, trying to keep it all low-cost and not buy anything other than my mums and fresh pumpkins. Plus...I plan to jump into Christmas at the first possible moment! ;-) What about you?

  1. I feel the same way about things, as if they have feelings too. I hate for things to be left behind, maybe because I was always the last to be picked for any teams way back when. I especially feel this way about Christmas trees that weren’t chosen and spend the holidays left in the lot. I’d take them all home if I could.
