Tall grasses are also available in the most beautiful shades of gold and brown and can be incorporated into your centerpieces also at no cost. Dollar stores also carry various colored berries and silk flowers that can be purchased to finish off your fall centerpieces. Leaves can be sprayed with gold or iridescent sparkle and spread around the centerpieces on the table for a cost of about $2.00. Be creative! You can create a dramatic effect at a fraction of the cost.
Fall offers apples and pears and other native fruits in a wide variety of colors (or non-native fruit if trying to match your theme)! When placed in wicker baskets or glass vases, the fruit becomes a beautiful centerpiece for your tables. This trend has been showing up in Hollywood weddings and can be replicated for your wedding at a fraction of the price of flowers. Instyle Weddings reports that when Jason Priestley wed Naomi Lowde, wicker baskets that held kiwis and avocados graced the tables.
