It’s official. Whether the weather indicates it or not where you live, the calendar says it’s fall.
Me…I’m still clinging to the hope that summer won’t ever leave.
But did you notice? In an attempt to get into the spirit of fall, I (somewhat reluctantly) changed out my blog header from the bowl of pink shells to white pumpkins. In my house though, I’ll probably be keeping my pink roses and sea shells out until it’s time to decorate for Christmas, which will be pink, of course! :)
Since many of you greet this time of year with open arms and are happily sprucing up your homes, porches, and yards with touches of fall decor, I thought I would share a couple decorating ideas I saw last fall and saved to the “Inspiration File” I keep on my computer. Unfortunately, I do not know all of the photo sources to be able to give the appropriate credit.
I loved this bowl of potpourri with the pumpkin candles, child’s chalkboard and metal scoop. This just screams “fall” to me and I think it would be so cute displayed on the kitchen counter.
I think this vignette of candles would look fabulous on a fireplace mantel, a buffet, or as a table centerpiece. It would be so easy and inexpensive to create this look with glass containers of different sizes and shapes purchased from thrift stores or yard sales.
For people who have trouble decorating with traditional fall colors (like me), a bowlful of little white pumpkins could be decorated with bits of ribbon in colors that coordinate with your decor. A dot of hot glue or double-stick tape would be an easy way to attach the ribbon to each pumpkin.
