HomeGoods Simple & Inexpensive Centerpiece Ideas

Hi there!  I’ve put together some creative, yet simple seasonal ideas for your dining room table. Each idea can be dressed up or dressed down. And the best part?  All of the arrangements are done ON A BUDGET! Because look, decorating your home doesn’t have to put a huge dent in your wallet. In fact, it’s fun and refreshing to take pieces and move them around every once in a while – allowing everything to feel brand new!

Side note: Everything you see is something I found THIS week. (other than the antlers)



Hey, sometimes less is more. Can I get an amen? This is perfect for an everyday “let’s not take this off the table” look. If you have a long table, consider duplicating this piece down the length of the table.

Tin Faux Plants: $9.99 at HomeGoods.

Real Pumpkins: $6.99 for a set of three. Luke got these bad boys. (thanks babe)


If you have a smaller table, you can put the faux plants (or a round plant) in a basket or on a tray!

I got this basket from TJ Maxx for $3.99


If you’re anything like me, I love height with my centerpieces. Move over world, my lanterns are coming through! Take the simple, everyday look, and spice it up with a candle stick and a lantern.

Candle Stick: $16.99 at HomeGoods.  (I can’t find another one to save my life)

Driftwood Lantern with Burlap Handle: $24.99 at HomeGoods


Back to simple, yet stunning. I would even be tempted to add more white pumpkins. This would look amazing duplicated down a long table.


Add some color, baby! This blue lantern makes me want to melt. That’s how much I love it. It’s certainly a piece I’m desperately trying to find a place for in my own home.

Antlers: $75 at Z Gallerie (2.5 years old)

Blue Wooden Lantern (candle not included): $29.99 at HomeGoods


Luke is OBSESSED with this wooden centerpiece.  It’s such an expensive looking/feeling piece and very versatile. I wanted to give you different looks for this one because we love it.  You can keep it clean by simply adding tea candles. OR you can build upon it by adding a little green, placing decorative items in front, or anything in between! The options are endless.

Wooden & Iron Tea Candle Boat: $19.99 at TJ Maxx

Small Faux Pumpkins: $6.99 at HomeGoods

Steel and Glass Jar:  $12.99 at TJ Maxx
