Last week, I shared a new Fall Wild Game Dinner Party Tablescape which inspired my to make a similar centerpiece for our large kitchen island to coordinate with the table setting. So, today, I am sharing an Easy Evergreen and Pumpkin Centerpiece that you can easily replicate.
Here are a few shots of the tablescape that inspired this vignette for fall…
Our island is 16 feet long, so I like to create vignettes for this space that are pretty large. You can totally scale this down to fit the space you are trying to decorate for fall or Thanksgiving.
How to create an Easy Evergreen and Pumpkin Centerpiece
I must admit that is hard to find a tray this large so I had to get creative. This one is actually a boot tray!! Can you believe that?! The great thing about using a book tray for this is that the sides help “hold up” the greenery and contain it all.
I started with placing the large glass cylinder vase off-centered and placed the flicker candle in the middle. NOTE: I do NOT recommend using a real candle. The dried pinecones could be very flammable!
We are fortunate to have dozens of evergreen trees that produce pinecones on our property so coming by them is quite easy for me. Most craft stores sell them, though, if they are not readily available where you are.
Adding them to the vase really adds a nice “fall” touch.
Next, I placed the brown and green velvet pumpkins randomly. I have almost every color in the spectrum of pumpkins and you could really use any color scheme. However, I decided to use green and brown to compliment the evergreen tones and brown tones of the pinecones and greenery.
Once the pumpkins were placed, I forged my yard for the evergreens and the other foliage. Especially at this time of the year, I really enjoy forging our yard for seasonal decorating. I can assure you that you will see me doing more of this throughout the holidays!
For this centerpiece, I cut branches from my juniper bushes and our yew bush. I think their textures compliment each other so nicely. Any combination of greenery would work great here.
Since I used my dried hydrangeas in the centerpiece for our Wild Game Dinner Party, I decided to use them in this centerpiece as well. I think the “girth” of them works so well with the velvet pumpkins! Plus, since they are “dried”, this arrangement will sustain itself for us through Thanksgiving. Bonus!

Hopefully, you enjoyed seeing the simple details of how to make an Easy Evergreen and Pumpkin Centerpiece! Remember, you could easily scale this up or down depending on the area you are decorating for fall or Thanksgiving. Are you getting excited for the holiday like me?!?!
