Like millions of other people this week, we are traveling to be with family on Thanksgiving day. However, that doesn’t mean I was going to let a holiday-related decorating opportunity to pass us by!
With the exception of Christmas, I tend to be a seasonal decorator rather than for specific holidays. I’ve had a bit of fall decor up for a while.
Per usual, I begin with what I have, like this orange book, black wire cake stand and white ceramic apples. Once I added a few fresh gourds, voila. Instant fall centerpiece. I actually bought these gourds before Halloween and they are still going strong.
My fall mantle, which I forgot to share with you (shame on me), consisted of the tin apple sign (Christmas tree shop), pumpkins and a wooden witch and ghost (castoffs from my Mom). I just traded them our for Mr. Scarecrow (another castoff from my Mom) and insta-Turkeyified the living room.
The greens in the middle are from our rhododendron in the front yard. The clippings last forever! I had them inside for a month before they started to turn yellow.
We still have up the Nearly No-Sew Autumn Bunting I shared with you earlier this fall.
Lastly, I put together a centerpiece that I will share with you next!
Like I said before, I like to use things that I already have.
For my fall decorations I spent $15 on pumpkins and gourds (highway robbery!) and the tin apple sign was $3 from Christmas Tree Shoppe.
I usually really like decorating for the fall, but lately I just want to get all my Christmas decorations out! One more week!!
