Fall is adored by so many for the abundance of vibrant and eye-popping colours that emerge every year, and we’re not just talking about the leaves! When it comes to beautiful centrepieces or planters, the possibilities are as endless as your imagination allows them to be. Here are some tips for creating the perfect one, bringing out the natural brilliance of the most colourful season of the year!
Subtle Pumpkin and Gourd Placement
For centrepieces and even planters, a well-placed and appropriately sized pumpkin and gourd pairing will give your landscaping or indoor space that extra burst of colour without being garish or over-the-top. Extra points for carving a simple yet stunning image.
Pick Three Colours and Stick with Them
Reds, browns, yellows, oranges, dark greens, and even purple tend to be popular colours with landscapers and interior designers in the fall, but mashing them together in a complicated floral arrangement can make it feel overwhelming and noisy. Try the approach of picking three colours and evenly incorporating them in your planters and centrepiece designs. The simplicity of this method will allow each colour to be more vibrant and eye-catching, as the combination will be easier on the eyes and not as complex.
Rustic Pots and Surfaces
Rustic style is never outdated, especially during the fall season. Since the emphasis is on natural colours, harvest themes and more traditional floral arrangements, swapping your planters for beautifully aged and rustic alternatives will really give your arrangements that extra flair and create a natural atmosphere. The same applies for surfaces on which to set centrepieces, as the typical colours of this season tend to blend harmoniously with aged wooden, stone and clay surfaces.
Just because it’s fall, it doesn’t mean that you need to add a dozen extra planters. If anything, this is the perfect time to clear clutter from your landscaping. A few well-placed rustic planters combined with iron patio furniture and accompanying harvest-focused centrepieces can go a long way and cost less than expensive brick-and-mortar landscaping projects. Additionally, this gives you the chance to repurpose discarded wood and stone to create the perfect natural complement to your fall planter and centrepiece. Clutter minimization also extends to your floral arrangements, as by limiting the number of species in each planter or centrepiece to four, you’ll create a more wholesome and less chaotic environment.
Fall is all about creativity when it comes to centrepieces and planters. With these tips and tricks in mind, it’s never been easier to achieve that perfect harvest-friendly and rustic atmosphere that itself is a tradition!
