As much as I love coastal decor throughout much of my home, I like my dining room to have a more formal look to it. I have coastal fall decor in my breakfast nook, but the dining room is filled with gold accents and dark furniture. I wanted to create a new centerpiece for fall that would add to the gold decor.
I found this brass candle holder at Goodwill. It didn’t look too great, but I knew I could paint it and make it work well for my golden fall centerpiece.
I gave it a couple of coats of Rust-Oleum Pure Gold Metallic spray paint and it had just the right look to it, not too shiny, but a deep gold tone.
I started putting my centerpiece together using the pedestal cake plate that is trimmed in gold. I arranged a few leaves around the plate. I purchased those last year at The Dollar Tree. Putting the newly painted candle holder on top of the cake plate gives the centerpiece a good height
Next, I rummaged through my fall decor stash to find these golden pumpkins that I painted last fall. I picked out the largest ones to use for the centerpiece.
I arranged the pumpkins on the cake plate and added a ball candle, a strand of craft pearls, and acorns to the candle holder. I bought the acorns at Michaels.
I’m pleased with how the golden fall centerpiece came together. It fits in perfectly with the place settings. I’m still tweaking the tablescape and I’ll share the finished look soon.
We party with some awesome bloggers. We’ll be sharing this at lots of these great parties!
