Here is another quick and easy centerpiece for the fall season! With a few changes, you can use it for both Halloween and Thanksgiving.
watercolordoodledpumpkinpaperlanternsUsing my DIY cake plate, a paper doily, some flowers from the garden, a dollar store candle holder, battery operated tea lights and two paper lanterns, I created a simple arrangement for a sideboard or your kitchen counter!
