Fall Coffee Table Centerpiece

Do you struggle with what to put on your coffee table for a seasonal centerpiece?  In my opinion, it can't be too large, needs to be easily removable, should be pretty and make a statement about what season it is. With that in mind, I thought I'd share what I came up with for a fall centerpiece on our coffee table this year.



It's easily removable as it is in a tray...

It makes a statement about what season it is...

It's not too large...

It is pretty...

and as an added bonus, it provides some cozy ambiance.

It's design is quite simple but I'll show you how I put this fall coffee table centerpiece together.

Here are the items I used.

I placed a woven tray on a placemat to prevent adding even more scratches to our coffee table. 

Next, I placed a hurricane vase with some acrylic orange vase filler in the middle of the tray.

A pedestal candleholder was buried into the vase filler and an orange pillar candle placed on top.

Some faux sugared pumpkins were arranged around the glass vase.

Colourful faux leaves were then tucked into the edges of the tray.

I set faux fall berry picks into any empty spaces in the arrangement.

And there you have an easy-to-put-together coffee table centerpiece that fulfills all my criteria for a practical yet pretty centerpiece.

Now, to pour a glass of wine, relax and enjoy it!


Thanks for visiting!

Nice! I usually have a quilted table topper or runner on the coffee table that changes with the seasons. Autumn has a leaf runner, with ceramic pumpkins and some books with autumn color covers.

Just beautiful - I would never have thought to put it together this way, but I'm definitely going to try now!
Thanks for sharing. Found you through BNOTP

Easy and beautiful and next year you can use the same items and make a totally different arrangement. I love faux flowers and pumpkins and stuff you can use year after year. Just give them a little shower and their good as new.

Thanks for the reminder that it doesn't take much time to create a lovely centerpiece that meets all the requirements! I don't usually do one for the coffee table (we have two 90-lb labs with active tails! lol!), but this would be just the thing for an end-table.

This is so pretty, Lori. I love the idea of putting the vignette all within a tray or basket. Makes it easy to shoosh aside when needed. You've always been great at vignettes!

You've checked all the boxes for our senses here. It's perfect. :-)

This is a great post! What a good idea to center your coffee table decor on one tray. Thank you for showing us exactly how you "built" it to be a lovely addition to the room.
