Pike Nurseries: Fall centerpieces

Posted: Updated:

Centerpieces are a great way to capture the season and add warmth to any kitchen, dining room or even your outdoor patio table! Create a fall arrangement that will last weeks or even months.

Here are some tips from Pike Nurseries:

Considerations When Designing a Centerpiece

  • Think about how you will use the area
  • If putting an arrangement on a kitchen or dining room table, make sure you can see over the arrangement or that it can easily be moved
  • If it will be around food, choose something that is artificial or be sure to cover the dirt with moss


Wreaths

  • Wreaths are typically used on doors, but their shape makes them great as a centerpiece as well
  • Place a fall wreath in the center of a table and create a display that is contained in the interior of the wreath
  • Electric candles are a great option
  • They look real and have a on/off timer switch, so you don't have to worry about them being a fire hazard


Houseplant Arrangement

  • Make an arrangement with houseplants
  • It will give you fresh flowers that will last months
  • Choose plants with similar light needs – a Pike Associate can help
  • Choose several plants that coordinate in their leaf size, shape or color
  • Be sure to place a saucer or cork stand under the arrangement to protect your table from water


Flower Tower

  • If you're having company over and are planning a buffet, use additional pots to create extra height
  • You can dress up your flower tower for the season by adding real or artificial pumpkins & gourds around the saucer


Fall Picks

  • Dress up existing houseplants, container gardens or empty pots with fall picks
  • Don't be afraid to cut or bend the long stems to make them your desired height

    Ten time Ironman, Dave Nazaroff recently rode 900 miles on his bicycle...from Nyack, New York...to Georgia. He didn't do it to get in shape, or to win a competition; he did it to raise money for a 11 year old Callie Truelove in Gainesville, Georgia.
