The corner of our dining area can be pretty sparse if it’s left alone. The nice thing about it is that it’s an area that can be easily decorated to bring a pop of color to an otherwise dull place. Creating a small vignette is easy to do & can become a focal point for the room. Hope you like it!
We’ve already had our first frost of the year, some areas have had some light snow flurries, the leaves are changing and Fall is most definitely here. This was the inspiration for this week’s tablescape. I hope you enjoy it.
I was given some plain medium colored brown napkins, that I really didn’t like. They’ve been sitting in my napkin drawer for about a year now. Brown is not one of my favorite colors, but they do go well with Fall. What to do with them? I made my own stencil, added some paint & turned them into some Fall napkins. Once you know how to make a stencil, you can decorate anything. This would be a good way to change up plain pillows, place-mats, towels or even a plain sweatshirt.
It’s that time of the year again. Season’s changing, holidays are coming fast & once again, I’m a little behind on decorating. I’ve seen so many new decorations in the stores for the Fall, but the prices are outrageous. Since I have a tendency to be a little frugal, I started my fall decorations by making my own.
Here’s the first Fall decoration for this year. It’s easy to make, inexpensive & can be customized to go with any color theme you want.
When I put together my Fall Tablescape-3 Ways, the first tablescape had a Fall Lantern as the centerpiece. It is easy to make & can be easily removed after the season has changed. The same principal can be used for the upcoming Christmas season, simply by changing the ribbon and florals.
Here’s how I changed a plain lantern into a Fall lantern.
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.
Back in August, I did a tutorial on how to make a Table Garland Centerpiece. It was a beautiful, simple and very easy centerpiece to make. I thought I’d show you how to make the centerpiece in Fall colors using florals & foliage from Walmart.
It looks like Fall is here. I love the cooler weather & the glorious colors of the leaves changing from green to golds, oranges & reds. With all of the changes occurring outside, I thought it was a good time to start changing some things around the house. For me, the first change is usually the wreath on the door. And this year, I wanted to bring in some copper colors to brighten the Fall colors up even more. Welcome Fall.
