Fall is in full swing and many of us love to pull some of the outdoors inside with some revamping of our favorite spaces to give them a new fresh and clean fall feel. In our house, the most used space, by far, is our family room.This large room is connected to the kitchen and we are in and out of it a billion times a day. Recently I thought our coffee table was a little bland and I wanted to give it a quick fall makeover so with just a few items, I quickly transformed it with this 5 minute fall centerpiece!
This centerpiece was so fast to put together with no crafting or DIY-ing at all. I used some items I already and with the addition of a few of my very favorite candles from the brand new American Home™ collection by Yankee Candle® brand, I was able to add some fall love onto our table that will transition well into Thanksgiving and stick around until I am ready to swap it out with some Christmas love!
I’ll confess: I am a complete candle snob. Yankee Candle® brand are my very very very favorite and I have been using them religiously for as long as I can remember. Yankee Candle brand was born in Massachusetts where I am from and growing up, these were the only candles my mom had in the house. No matter what the season or time of year, there are fragrances to match, from florals for spring, to beachy fragrances for summer, and into the pumpkin, apple, cookie and cinnamon types that are perfect for the holidays, no decoration was complete without a new Yankee Candle brand candle to complete it.
When I was living in Arizona, these candles were harder to find, so I used to have my sister send them to me, but now that I am in Pennsylvania they are more readily available- thank goodness!! I have a few Yankee Candle brand stores near by, but none that close, so you’ll imagine my joy when I was at Walmart the other day and realized that they are starting to carry their own special line of Yankee Candles® brand called American Home™!! These candles are available in all of my favorite sizes, from the larger tumbler jars to the smaller votives. There are a wide variety of new fragrances available too, but I chose to pick some fall ones: fresh apple, shades of fall, and sweet and salty caramel. They were in the candle aisle and also had their own end cap.
To make these candles fit into my fall decor, I used an old galvanized jug I had and a small plaid platter. Then I bought some new fall flowers and a mini box of acorns that I picked up really cheap. I used these to create a gorgeous centerpiece that not only looks fantastic, but smells fantastic too!
I used the tray to hold the two smaller candles and poured the acorns around them, to add a fun and whimsical touch to it and then I added in some height with the larger candle and the tall jug with the flowers behind it.
This centerpiece is so fun and simple to make and gives my family room a whole new feel to it. Best of all, when the kids are in bed, I can light the candles and my whole house fills with the fragrances of fall. It’s the best!
I love how the bright yellow, orange and reds of the flowers match the my new fall candles from the American Home™ collection by Yankee Candle® Brand, and I really love how easy it is to pick new ones up at my local Walmart! I am already imagining how I can change my flowers out for Christmas and how great it will look with some winter holiday candles instead.
