Creations, Early Fall Centerpiece

Happy September!

I am slowly transitioning my home decor to fall

The boys brought home these beautiful Summer Roses several weeks ago

and I enjoyed them so much

When they started to look tired I couldn’t bear to throw them away…

So I hung them upside down to dry

I love these faded colors for early fall

I pushed the moss down into this decorative box

so I could add some straw to mix in with it

Now I had a bed to build the centerpiece on

I gathered mini white faux pumpkins and spools of ribbon and got to work

I placed the pumpkins on the straw and moss

and tucked the roses around them

The final touch was wrapping a ribbon around the box

and weaving a strand of gold leaves around the pumpkins

This is a sneak preview of the table I’ll be sharing

for the annual Welcome Fall Tablescape Blog Hop next week

Be sure to stop by and see all the gorgeous fall tables we’ll be sharing!

Happy September!!

    Love this so much Jenna. Happy September. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. I love the way you incorporated the roses into a new fall centerpiece. Hopefully this comment will go through, WordPress has been working on the problem for me.

  4. So pretty! Love the colors.

    I like the addition of your dried flowers to your small crate of mini pumpkins. Very nice! I too am making the transition in my mind to fall. We are up north visiting friends at their cabin and there is an outdoor market nearby with a wonderful display of pumpkins. Seeing them and the awesome bonfires we’ve had has brought fall into focus, although it is hard to say good bye to summer.

    • Pumpkins are the reward for saying goodbye to summer! I haven’t seen any for sale around here yet, but they should start showing up after Labor Day…a evening bonfire sounds like so much fun, enjoy your stay with friends Cyndi!

    This centerpiece is so lovely, Jenna. I’ve never dried flowers before. Does hanging them upside down keep the petals from falling off? I’m slowly getting in the mood for fall: I’m hanging on to summer for as long as possible because I just can’t imagine what is ahead for the holiday season. It’s my turn to host Thanksgiving for the family, and I’m afraid it’s not going to happen. I’ll be sooo disappointed. Looking forward to the Fall Blog Hop!

    • hi Rosie, I’m not an expert on drying flowers, I just put a rubber band around them and hung them upside down in the laundry room, some petals still fell off but the blooms stayed mostly in tact. I hope you get to host Thanksgiving, and being in Calif maybe you could even do it outside…I hope you have a nice Labor Day weekend!

    Very pretty centerpiece, and I do love the faded colors of the roses. Brava, my Sweet Friend!

    I can’t wait to start a little fall decor, but it will have to wait until next week. We’re having company this weekend from Baton Rouge!

  8. Sarah Anderson says:

    Jenna, you are so good to give us step by step instructions. This is such a fun idea. I like to use my doughbowl for the same idea, but haven’t added the dried flowers. Will do that. Thanks and have a great weekend!

    • Thank you Sarah, I wish I had a dough bowl! We are having an extended family weekend at the beach, all activities outside so we can stay safe…I can’t believe it’s September and Labor Day already!

  9. Long, skinny boxes are so versatile. This looks really pretty with the pumpkins. Looking forward to digging out mine. Those roses are extra pretty!

  10. Sandhya says:

    Love it!

  11. Jenna, that is a beautiful centerpiece. The yellow roses dried to the prettiest shade of gold…gorgeous! Your tutorial is easy to follow! I know your table will be stunning!

  12. Nancy says:

    Oh so lovely! Pretty colors for the beginning of fall!
    Happy weekend to you!

  13. Chloe Crabtree says:

    You are early! Everyone will be posting on the 8th! I hope we send you lots more traffic then! Those roses are so lovely, I almost like them more in their dried form than fresh! Such a lovely nod to the coming season!

    • hi Chloe, no this was just a sneak peek, I am posting my table on the 8th, I just wanted to post this DIY separately because I wanted this post to be all about creative ways to do a centerpiece and hint to our upcoming hop to generate some excitement!

  14. Elena W says:

    I love the florals and pinks! I typically don’t like fall decor because of all the orange and blacks, but your decor is absolutely delightful


  15. Your centerpiece is so pretty. Drying flowers can be so awesome for future centerpieces. I love the faded flower look. The runner along with the candles is a great look for fall. I need to get busy.
    Happy Labor Day.
