Fall Floral Containers

As summer turns to fall, dress your country table with your favorite autumn blooms arranged in upcycled vessels.

Ann Couser Kittredge of Dabbling and Decorating shares tips for using vintage and repurposed containers in fall centerpieces.

1. Keep cans of spray paint on hand to jazz up old household items that can be used as fun and unique vases. For example, you could upcycle vintage glass soda bottles by painting them in a variety of colors. Spray-paint the bottles with a mix of metallic and matte finishes to get a layered look.
2. Ann says she loves the chippy, rustic feel of her vintage wire basket in her autumn display. But if you don’t have your own vintage piece, you could create a chippy look through a faux-aging process by using white milkpaint on wooden vessels.
