I think dried flowers would look great, very rustic yet pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have a pic of the lanterns?

There are a zillion pics of lantern centerpieces online. You can add decor to the top, place the lantern on a wood slice, add grapevine, moss and a few flowers-silk are fine, or keep it simple like the bottom pic- add a couple of succulents, a few pebbles and your idea of acorns instead of the leaves shown here.

I also did not want real flowers in/around my lanterns due to the cost. I put IKEA fake burgandy flower petals beneath a white candle in my lanterns. Here is the link:

They look awesome for $2 a bag! And I got 2 lanterns worth of petals from each bag ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re putting wooden slabs under out lanterns. We also used 3 candles in varying heights on the inside to fill them up a bit more and create a little more interest.

Then, around the lantern on/off the wood slab, we’re putting little vintage bud bases I got at the salvation army with dried lavender in them.

I was thinking about using moss around the outside of it too, bordering it almost.

Basically, we decided to keep the lanterns pretty simple and focus on dressing up the table around them. I tried tieing things to the top, etc., but wasn’t liking anything.

I do have river rocks in my vase centerpieces though, so maybe I’ll steal your idea! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I really like the idea of using acorns too, I think that would be super cute. See what you can find outside and just start playing around with it!

Here is a photo of what we are doing for our fall lantern centerpieces. No real flowers, a few silk but mostly leaves.

Then here are some other idea I have come across:
