Give your succulents a fall-themed home with some mini pumpkin planters. Scoop out your pumpkins, add your succulents, and cover with some soil and a sheet of moss.
These make great side table additions or even centerpieces.
These stylish candle holders look so elegant, people will ask where you bought them. Leave a hole in the middle of a pumpkin to hold your candles.
You can also swap out your real candles for some wax-dipped tealights for a centerpiece that’s both eye-catching and fire-proof!
If you’re worried about wax dripping or open flames, opt for flameless candles like these flameless pillars.
