10 Centerpieces for Fall Weddings, Halloween, and Thanksgiving

It’s getting to that part of the year where the air is getting crisper, the leaves are changing color, and perhaps you’re swapping your iced coffee for pumpkin spiced lattes.

Fall is upon us once again! It’s time to put away your summer decor in favor of something more cold-weather appropriate. Honestly, we think fall is one of the best seasons. It’s all about rugging up, getting cozy, and embracing beautiful warm color palettes

The next few months are the best time to introduce warm, earthy and bold colors (think: deep reds, yellows, oranges and browns) to your home by way of floral arrangements and vases.

We love this black urn –– look closely and you’ll see the lion heads cast into the handles for an extra touch of vintage chic. It would look great with orange tulips and mini gourds too, and you could also repurpose it as a candy bowl!


Maybe you’re planning a fall wedding, a decadent Halloween celebration, a family Thanksgiving, or you just want to decorate your home for the season. Well, we’ve got you covered! 

Here are our top picks of vases and floral arrangements that are perfectly suited to fall.


Fall Wedding Centerpieces

Fall weddings are all about embracing the colors of the season. Warm tones, a lot of gold and bronze accents, and rustic textures. 

And when it comes to designing your wedding decor, your reception table centerpieces and settings are the most important thing. This is where your guests will be spending most of their time, so every detail counts!


If you’re searching for the perfect table toppers, look no further than our antique brass vases. They come in two sizes to keep things interesting, but aren’t so high they’ll block anyone’s view. Fill them with flowers that match the rest of your decor for a harmonious look.

Another option is to go for a subtle vase that blends seamlessly into the background. You’ve spent a lot of money on a wedding florist, after all, so you want your flowers to be the star of the show! 

This is where our diamond-cut glass vases would come in handy, or any of our glass flower compotes. This sturdy bowl/vase combo is a perfect option for your wedding bouquets –– it’s elegant but unobtrusive.

Then again, centerpieces don’t have to be all about the flowers. It’s fall, after all, so maybe you’d prefer to decorate with leaves and small tree branches, for a more rustic and idyllic feel.

We’re obsessed with this statement centerpiece which works so well on a square table –– a tall glass vase filled with a bundle of maple leaf branches. It makes for quite a breathtaking look.

The best thing is that our cylinder glass vases come in a variety of different sizes. Choose one that’s right for you, or get a bunch in different heights to create levels on your table.

Halloween Centerpieces

The standard Halloween colors are black and orange, bats, cats, and witches, with pumpkins. Skip the some of the conventional decorations this year, and instead embrace some classy vases, dark foliage, and flowers that really elevate the theme.

While flowers are kind of the opposite of ‘spooky vibes’, you can definitely lean into the Halloween energy with creeper vines, tillandsia, grasses, evergreens, and dried plants.

How cool does this wild grapevine piece look in our black vase? Our favorite thing about this design is its versatility – you can really use it year-round. Softened with blueberry branches, it would also look great at a fall wedding. Get the black vase here.  


Thanksgiving Table Centerpieces

Decorating for Thanksgiving dinner always comes down to how you dress your table. Should you go for a centerpiece, or break it up with a bunch of smaller vases and candles?

If you’re going for a more welcoming and warm vibe, it’s a good idea to mix and match smaller decor pieces. Avoid anything too tall, as people still need to see across the table after all!

We love the idea of mixing small gold-rimmed glass votive holders with brass cups that look great filled with flowers or leaves. A combination of vases in different heights makes the setting a bit more interesting.


Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a statement piece to put in the middle of the table, then go for something shallow but wide.

This brass urn is perfect for big blooms and low flower arrangements –– the polished finish adds a hint of subtle shine that contrasts with your florals. 


Or maybe you’re doing a more casual Thanksgiving this year. You don’t need something too decorative but are in the market for more chill and homely decor. How about these clear glass vases
