I’m not sure what made this tablescape come together for me. It started with the Dollar Tree Fall Centerpiece. I knew I wanted the colors of fall, but not the bright jewel tones that burst on to the scene in the coming months. And I wanted to incorporate the copper color from the centerpiece.
I guess it all came together because of one of the most generous gifts I’ve gotten in a very long time. A very special gift from my Mother-In-Law.
An Autumn Tablescape
Since the temperatures have been in the 40’s at night here in Western Pennsylvania, and I’m starting to see the leaves turning to the bright & beautiful shades of Autumn, I have to give in to the fact that Summer is over. Fall isn’t in its full colorful glory yet, but it’s just around the corner. Yes, I’m finally facing the fact that it’s Fall.
This is my first Fall home decor item for the season. Most of the items for this project are from the Dollar Tree, with a very few exceptions. And it’s so easy to put together. Just because the items were bought at the Dollar Tree, doesn’t mean it has to look like it. And tomorrow, I’ll be using it in a Fall Tablescape.
One of my ongoing projects is decorating the bathroom in silver & white. It’s taking me a little longer than I’d anticipated, but I’m happy with how it’s coming along.
I’ve always got my eye out for items that I can customize. This project was perfect for the bathroom. I found this waste basket on one of my trips to the thrift store. It still had the original Target tag on the bottom, and at $1.99 I couldn’t pass it up. It had potential. This is how I changed a plain Jane into something with a little sparkle.
I’m sure that the title of this week’s tablescape evokes thoughts of the popular book out there. But when I was putting this tablescape together, I found myself humming the song Shades of Gray by the Monkees. It’s such a pretty melody. If you don’t know the song, you can find it here.
Here is my Shades of Grey tablescape. I hope you like it.
While I’ve been on my organizing mission, after reorganizing my ribbon, I started on my ribbon roses. I searched the Internet for ideas to organize them, while still making them easy to get to. I searched Pinterest, YouTube, Google images & Google. All I could find were posts for making ribbon roses.
I’m sure other crafters out there have the same issues that I’ve had. I actually came up with the idea because of a dream. I was lost in a sea of ribbon roses & then the answer hit me. It was so simple!
This is how I organized this mess:
