31 Days: Easy Fall Table Centerpiece

I think I probably said in my last post that FALL is my absolute favorite season!
Right now the weather here is perfect.
Not too hot, not too cold. 
It's Just Right!

I consider my decorating style pretty simple.

 Here are the items I used for this simple table centerpiece in my breakfast room.
Round basket tray was a yard sale find.
Grapevine I just cut and wrapped myself. 
Iron trivet to set the pumpkin on, I already had. 
I don't like setting the pumpkin directly on a flat surface. Too many experiences with rotting pumpkins. 
This time I washed my pumpkin in a diluted bleach and dish washing liquid solution, hopefully washing away all of those things that cause pumpkins to rot.

Roll of burlap for the runner, purchase at half price from Hobby Lobby.
Ends of runner are turned under and hand stitched. I do not prefer sewing burlap on my sewing machine. 
The blank wall in the background will be another creative endeavor that I hope to share soon.

Sometimes simple is good--no distractions to look through.
