If like me you love decorating for the autumn season and all the holidays up ahead but find yourself short on time then you need quick decorating solutions that you can easily transition from one event to the next.  This budget friendly pumpkin centerpiece created from a darling glass pumpkin and fall florals will do just that! With a few simple change-ups you can transition your table from fall to Halloween to Thanksgiving using the same centerpiece.

Don’t get me wrong, I love decorating with real pumpkins and flowers, and I’ll share some more fall decor featuring those soon, but this year I needed decor for the table that I could leave sitting and not worry about. Thus I opted for this gorgeous glass pumpkin in a vivid orange for only $14.  It just sings autumn to me and when the light hits it, the pumpkin just glows…so pretty!

I surrounded the pumpkin with cheery fall florals, including orange peonies, yellow orchids, fall berries, and wheat stems. Just snip the stems on the peonies and cut apart the berries and orchid bunches then layer them around the glass pumpkin. The variety of florals and natural elements add texture and visual interest to the centerpiece, creating a lovely autumn mix.

Oh! Did I mention this little table decoration is easy on the wallet?

    Love how you changed it with just a few details. I love leopard print so immediately drawn to this table. Beautiful!
