Tis the season when excuses to entertain abound! I love fall for many reasons, primary among them the long list of parties, gatherings and dinner dates that crop up over the next few months. Ever on the hunt for great party decorating ideas, right now I’m head over heels for pumpkin centerpieces. They’re perfect for Halloween, of course, but really they’re beautiful all fall long. Think harvest dinner parties, Thanksgiving or just everyday family gatherings. Pumpkin centerpieces are super versatile, but they’re also easy and affordable.
