How are You Decorating For Fall?

Today is a perfect fall day in the Midwest.  I drove my oldest son to Environmental Education Camp this morning, and enjoyed the full beauty of it all.  There were bright oranges and nut browns against a blue sky; a crisp wind in the air carrying with it the scent of a cozy fire…  Between my woodland drive and Saffron Marigold’s recent Thanksgiving Decor series, I’m absolutely inspired to decorate for fall!

Love the centerpiece from Style Me Pretty! Gorgeous colors and I love the fall pumpkins/gourds around it!



I love that one too, Meggan… I think I’d have to make a place for a piece like that on my hearth – the size is really a statement. My favorite part is that I could just head outside and come back in with an amazing natural show stopper!


I like to use the small, fist-sized pumpkins hollowed out and filled with sand or rice as votive holders.



Last year, I used an idea that I found on your blog: I hollowed out artichokes and inserted tea lights. The process was really easy, and they looked really nice as a centerpiece with assorted pumpkins and gourds. Thanks for the great idea!
