Simple Fall Centerpiece with Pumpkins, Succulents & Magnolia Leaves

In this post: Learn how to pull together an incredibly simple fall centerpiece that features a collection of pumpkins, succulents, and Magnolia leaves. 

We had an early Thanksgiving over the weekend and I put together a fairly quick centerpiece since I hadn’t planned or purchased much in advance.

This is such a quick and inexpensive centerpiece for Thanksgiving! Pumpkins, succulents and more... get the details from @craftivityd

We bought some of the last pumpkins left at a local fruit stand.

There were a couple pots of succulents in our flower bed that I hadn’t ever planted, so I brought them inside.

I placed a single tapered candle in the center and arranged the pumpkins and succulents around it.

To fill in everything, I stuck magnolia leaves around the edges of each item, spilling  over the sides of the tray. {if you have access to a magnolia tree, check out these other holiday decor ideas}

Since we had Thanksgiving several weeks early, we get to enjoy this for a few weeks before the Christmas decorating begins.
