How to create an easy fall table centerpiece

How to create an easy fall table centerpiece

Today I am showing you how to create an easy fall table centerpiece. Yesterday I switched up our dining room table decor. I was ready to add a few autumnal touches but didn’t want to spend any more money. So what did I do? I shopped my home. That’s right. I went around the house and gathered items that I already had and put together this easy fall table centerpiece.

I chose to go with cozy neutrals, and warm orange tones and I love the way it came out!

Start by collecting your items. You will need a blanket, scarf or some other type of linen, a tray, candles, vases, faux flowers, and some pumpkins or pinecones, real or faux.

Then place your tray or basket to collect all the decorative items.

Add your vases and faux florals, some candles and pumpkins or pinecones. The Dollar Store, Michaels, and Target Dollar Bin are some of my favorite places to find faux florals.

I love the soft glow from these amber vases with these long taper candles.

Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups chex cereal (I used the honey nut flavor but cinnamon would work great too!)
  • 2 cups pretzel bites (My youngest likes the pretzel balls)
  • 2 cups Reese’s pieces
  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread out the mixed nuts.
  3. In a small bowl combine the pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar
  4. In a separate bowl, crack an egg, keeping the egg white.
  5. Drizzle the egg white over the nuts coating evenly.
  6. Sprinkle the pumpkin pie spice mixture over the nuts and toss. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, tossing over every once in awhile.
  7. Remove the nuts from the oven and let cool.
  8. In a large bowl, combine the other ingredients.
  9. Add the nuts once cooled and toss.

Enjoy! If not eating immediately, store in an airtight container or mason jar. Or in this cute pumpkin glass jar below!
