Check out the brilliant colors from the farmers' market this weekend. I got inspired to do some fall decorating!
I started with this metal bowl, filled with fall-inspired colors - apples, oranges, limes and lemons with some filler from Michael's.
I needed a table runner. I had a piece of burlap in my stash- hemmed the long edges and pulled out threads to fringe the ends. Then hot-glued on the buttons - easy -peasy and fall-ish.
Next dragged out all the pumpkins.
Paper mache pumpkin covered with dictionary pages and green twine embellishments.
Painted and embellished plastic ones.
The book pumpkin I made last year. Check out the acorn - a 50 cent score at a tag sale this weekend.
I try to add in fall decor without sacrificing my beach stuff.
The scrapbook paper one, at home with the beachy-ness.
Adding some fall leaves and another great acorn = instant fall decor.
Found this great pitcher on the 60% off shelf at Michael's. It's perfect for dried hydrangeas and joe-pie weed.
Next, outside. Love this dark ornamental pepper. I'm seeing lots of dark purple in fall decor schemes and it works well with other fall plantings. Plus, the dark purple peppers turn red when ripe.
And let's not forget cookies - fall cookies from The Black Forest Cafe.
It's a little early for bittersweet, but I'll be looking for some . I'm thinking I might fill the cloche with it. I love the yellow and orange color and the twisty vines, but not the berries rolling all over everything, so going to try containing it this year.
Happy fall, y'all.
