After you are done here, be sure and scroll to the bottom to check out the rest of the beautiful pumpkin projects throughout the week!
It’s no secret I have 3 kids, and it’s not secret that said kids can be wild and crazy. Have you ever felt like you can’t decorate because of your kids. Yeah, me too! Sometimes it’s tough, but it can be done. I feel so blessed that God has given me these three beautiful children (despite what I might say during certain “episodes”) and I think about them in everything I do. I think about them every time I put a decoration on a shelf, picture on a wall, or centerpiece on my dining room table. It’s not always a beautiful picture in my head. Actually it’s often mental images of them taking my hydrangeas and crumpling them up and throwing them in the air and pretending it’s raining green water. But it’s what our life is right now, and I’m ok with that! Sometimes you just have to roll with the flow!
One of my favorite things to do with centerpieces is to display them on a tray. This way when you want to utilize your whole table, you can just simple lift and remove. Just a little trick for decorating with little ones at home ; ).
This centerpiece actually came together by accident. I was decorating for my Fall Home Tour (see part 1 here, and part 2 here) and I had laid out some different stuff on my table, and before I knew it this centerpiece was born. In order to give it dimension I started added a few books underneath and covered it with a brown craft paper.
Then to create this centerpiece I included 3 craft pumpkins, a basket with hydrangeas, and 2 stems of dried hydrangeas. Then I filled in any holes with fallen leaves from our front yard and a couple pieces of wheat.
With these few simple items I have created the perfect little centerpiece for our family, completely mobile, haha!

I always love when I set a few things aside and realize they totally go together! Beautiful display. It makes me wish I had some green hydrangeas!
Ashley, this is a darling table centerpiece! Thank you so much for having me be part of this wonderful blog hop!

I love when decor accidentally comes together! And even better when it’s easy to transport and get out of the way of the kids’ hands! It looks beautiful :)
Love the centerpiece! Don’t you love it when everything works out perfectly!
Happy day friend!

Simplicity is beautiful. Thank you for including me in this talented group…xo
I know I’ve already said it on Facebook, but I LOVE this centerpiece, Ashley! You and I are kindred spirits in the kid-friendly decor department. Trays are the only way I ever keep anything on our table and not catapulted across the room.
