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.
Oh, I’ve been shopping again. This time it was for some new Fall Decorating items. I went to several stores in the last few weeks, and this is what I found. First stop was Walmart. Oh they’ve gotten in so many pretty things for Fall. They had Fall garlands, bags of pumpkins & squash, mini hay bales & this adorable little scarecrow. I’ve already got a centerpiece in mind for these.
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.
Cuisine Kathleen has issued a “White Fall” challenge. ONLY WHITE dishes, but ONE other accent for linens, glassware etc. This was fun, but very challenging. No problem with the white dishes, since they’re my everyday go to dishes.
The challenging part was the ONE other color. Not different shades of the other color, but one other color. My other color started with a burnt orange sheet that my husband suggested I buy when Walmart had their sale going on. And a tablescape was born:
September is the back to school month. One of the symbols for that is the apple for the teacher. Apples are always popular this time of year, and I know that they’re very popular in decorating, especially in country decorating. Today, I thought I’d make an Apple Centerpiece to celebrate the beginning of Fall.
