Rustic White Featuring Fall/Winter Looks

Pumpkin, inexpensive red and white flowers, some greenery and white pumpkins, white burlap, candles and Dollar Store hurricanes and rosettes you can make yourself make the look featured in this post inexpensive and easy for the DIYer.

The white burlap painted with the initials of the the bride and groom surround a hurricane from the Dollar Store, a mason jar, and another smaller jar. Add a small white pumpkin (one of my favorite fall table ad-ons) and you have an interesting tablescape.

The trick to these white pumpkins? They aren't real.  They actually came home from Big Lots you garden variety foam pumpkin in orange (purchase them post Halloween/Thanksgiving the year before and you will save even more) and painted white. You can purchase real white pumpkins (I've bought them at Whole Foods) but availability and perfection and uniformity of size and form are hard to find.  You're much better off going with the fake foam variety. 

This table has a different look sporting a white pumpkin acting as a vase, set in a grapevine wreath with some white flowers, berries, greenery and sticks set on a burlap runner for a change of look for your guests tables.

This close up of a floating candle in a vase (again from the Dollar Store) wrapped in white burlap and decorated with twine, a paper rosette and a small stick show you the details of this design. The combination of a variety of table centerpieces, all with the same theme pull this rustic fall look together, perfect through the end of November.

Your ideas are pretty much inspiring. Though I am already married but I did really enjoy browsing all those pictures. I love the idea of adding the small white pumpkin as part of the table centerpiece as it gives a little bit of twist and glow!
