Fall is one of my most favorite times on the year. The weather becomes crisp and cozy. The leaves transform into vibrant drops of color scattered every where. Food becomes nourishing comfort with soups and hot drinks. And lets not forget that it is the jumping point for all things change in decor! I mean I get two holidays (some get three if you decorate for Halloween) to randomly and quickly turn my house into a humble abode to celebrate all things family!
This year I took it seriously! Or at least as seriously as my wallet would allow. For one its my first year in a home that I bought. And two it has been long time since I have neighbors to see my home! I pulled out all the stops-again as much as my pocket book would allow.
I love to create vignettes throughout my spaces, keeping the eyes moving around the room. My heart is full and I am excited that I get to create in my own home. Here is the dish… I love me some velvet pumpkins- 3 or one at a time. I love shopping in nature, thrift store and my own home to create new looks. Natural is best. I found leaves that look nearly real- score! I used weeping greenery I already had. I painted a basket cornucopia to update. I filled thrifted Pyrex with leaves, gourds and fake succulents and then placed them in vintage birdcages. And of course I added cornstalks to the front porch pillars, because its classic and expected, But of course I added my own flair with leaves, pumpkins, gourds, and sticks. And to complete the welcoming look I created a wreath on a budget. You can check out how I made this wreath on Facebook in the videos.
