Basket Decorating Idea’s for Fall Centerpiece

First, my version of the fall basket decorating idea center’s around a thrift store basket arranged on the screen porch outdoor table.

The basket centerpiece is filled with fall pumpkins and stems. In addition, the surrounding tables and light fixture also include some decorative fall elements.

How To Make The Basket Arrangement

First, let’s add a jute table runner to the center of the table and then begin by filling the large basket with an old clay pot and fall florals.

The basket has a round bottom, so therefore, I used a heavy clay pot to weigh it down and keep it tilted on its side.

In addition, I decided to use a large floral candle ring around the base of the clay pot.

Next, let’s add some more florals to either the basket or the clay pot. You can choose individual stems or a connected floral bush to fill in around the pumpkins.

Luckily, I have a matching floral bush which is the perfect size to fill the clay pot and provides just the right balance with the other items.

Finally, a faux pumpkin fits perfectly inside the basket and a few gourds and dried okra pods surround the larger pumpkin and appear to be spilling from the basket.

Additional Fall Touches

In addition to the centerpiece basket, a few pumpkins and floral stems were added to the DIY light fixture over the table.

Another great idea for Fall decorating is to look for vintage needlework art and this needlepoint barn works great with this fall table.

In addition, you might like to see more Thrift Store Decor ideas about decorating with inexpensive thrifted finds.

Since the barn art is a smaller print, it works best layered over a couple of larger old windows. Adding layers of art work and architectural salvage is one of my favorite decorating tips. You can read more about layering art work and Shelf Styling Tips here.

In addition, the wood slice holds a vintage amber bottle filled with DIY Sweet Gum Ball Stems and dried Okra pods. The vignette is surrounded by vintage brass candlesticks with orange candles.

How Can You Reuse Seasonal Decor?

Everything I used to create this table centerpiece was pulled from my seasonal storage bins.

Regardless of how many times you use your seasonal decor, you can make it look new again by using it in a new location around your home.

Many of these items were used on the front porch last year and you can see Best Ideas for Decorating a Porch for Fall for more ways to decorate with these items.
