Use One Bowl for Lots of Great Fall Centerpieces

Gather together fruits, leaves, and flowers.

Not everyone thinks that putting together a fall centerpiece for your family table or a party is the easiest thing to do. In fact, many people resort to buying one from a florist or market. But I want you to know that it is one of the easiest things to do.

Having a single container to use can make the process less challenging. We've used a clear glass footed bowl, but you can use anything you have. A silver punch bowl, a brass bowl, or an interesting pottery bowl will work just fine. Square or round, deep or shallow, footed or flat- almost anything can work.

Look around your home and find a container for your fall centerpiece. Then see if any of these fall centerpiece arrangements will work for your table.

It's as simple as piling fresh fruit or decorative pieces in a bowl, adding local greens or fall flowers, and putting it on the table.

Most of our fall centerpiece arrangements are made from grocery store ingredients. They're inexpensive and will last a long time. And most of them use just a few flowers.

If you're skeptical and intrigued, look at the One Bowl Arrangements, pick one, and try it. Add your own personal touches and make it unique.

Keep in mind that ripening fruit can cause fresh flowers to wilt. Add the fresh flowers just before your party or place the stems in vials of water.
