It’s easy to create an inexpensive and easy vase centerpiece. With all you need is an inexpensive large 12″ clear glass vase from a thrift or bargain store and tall pillar candles. Fill your vases with colorful fall favorites like red lentils, split peas, popcorn kernels, kidney beans, red lentils, acorns and pine cone. Your wallet will be thankful for your fruitful yet frugal efforts this season!

Just place a beautiful flower arrangement inside a pumpkin or gourd for an eye-catching centerpiece to add a soft and minimalist feel to your dinner table. To add some romance to your look we suggest painting the pumpkins, adding candles in the center and end with a nice flower arrangement.
