Centerpiece making ideas:
Once you have decided on a theme for your party, you can start purchasing arts and craft supplies. For floral centrepieces, use vases of pears, apples and other fall fruit or invest in cardstock and make your own fall floral bouquet. For something truly unique you can purchase floral supplies and craft tiny floral trees that match your colors and theme.
For table settings, use plates you already own and use napkins and name cards to accentuate the theme. At local craft stores, you can purchase inexpensive beads and wire to create napkin rings and decorations for your guests' wine glasses. The ribbon is another festive way to make napkin rings and theme-oriented table decor.
Name cards are where you can really let your imagination run wild. Use snowflake ornaments created with paper and ribbon or purchase fruit and make tiny name tags that you can pin on the top. There is no limit to what you can create with a little creativity and some craft supplies.
