I love how you used the pumpkins for a vase and the tealight!  Very creative 🙂  I think the gourd would look fine, but unless apples are in your theme elsewhere, I would probably skip them.  If you, your parents, or your in-laws have some candlestick holders laying around (they don’t have to match), I would throw those in too with some yellow candlesticks, just to give it a bit more elegance and dimension.

If you are having white linens, I would consider a colored cloth napkin or something similar underneath to center everything.

I really like the white pumpkin votives, it’s fall without being cliche.

I love exactly what you’ve got there! I’d forget about the apples – you don’t need them.  I think the mums look great in the pumpkin! If you want to add something I have seen a bowl with floating candles and cranberries in the water and it looked really nice!

Also you could use mini apples in a bowl arrangement… One more thing – can you make the roses sit a little more flush with the mums? That might look a little more polished.

I think that they look good and are very creative! If I was to have any suggestions, it would be to carry the greenery through the top of the centerpiece. That is my only thought, that maybe some sprigs of green in the flowers would make it look less like blocks of solid color. But again, personal tastes but a great DIY!

Very cute! I love the pumpkin-as-vase idea, and the colors look sooo nice together. Awesome job! Wish I could do something like that!

Thanks–that’s really sweet of you to offer! I am a fall wedding so it would work, but I just can’t see myself carving around 20 pumpkins. Lol I hate carving them at Halloween b/c I don’t like pulling the “guts” out–I make Fiance reach in and do it! I could totally get behind fake pumpkins but then the authenticity would be lost.

I think I’m going to use wine bottles as vases and just slap some calla lilies in them and bunch 4-5 bottles on each table. That’s abot the extent of my DIY! 🙂

LOL! We’re centerpiece twins! We still have a week before we can logically carve ours, but wow, do yours look beautiful! Great job!

@HoyaLawya2010: Something else you could consider is doing fake pumpkins. I know that Michael’s sells them this time of year. You could just cut out the middle and never have to worry about them going bad! You could put a little glass inside (from the dollar store) and that would hold the water.

That is such a cute idea!! I really love that little pumpkin votive!!! 

I just want to suggest that I think the flowers need a little something else mixed in, maybe some green, like someone else said, or berries for some texture?

 

and maybe make the stems a little shorter and spread them out a little more rounded so that less green shows from the side.

Or if you were going for the color-block modern look, then I would just make the roses flush with the mums, as someone else already suggested…..

This is such a great centerpiece idea for a fall wedding!!! Awesome!!
