Easy Fall table setting part 2

Hello everybody,
 I hope y'all had a great weekend. I have another easy table setting this week. I think this table setting maybe easier than last weeks. Here we go......
 
 
Just like last weeks tablecloth, this tablecloth is also a couple yards of fabric I had left over from a previous project.   


 
 "What does polka dots have to do with Fall?" Absolutely nothing, but it works. I think the raffia place mats brings a natural but festive element to the table and the color palette screams Fall. You like?
 
 
 
 This is a super simple center piece. I purchased 4 pint size mums from Lowe's ( $1.48 each) I removed them from their original container and potted them in 2 terracotta pots. (2 mums per pot) Then I cut out a large square of the zebra fabric. I placed the pot in the center of the fabric and pulled the fabric up on all sides. Next, I secured the fabric with a rubber band. The excess fabric was used to cover the rim of the pot. Easy huh? 
 
 
 
Do you like the chair covers? Well, they aren't really chair covers. They are actually dinner napkins that I placed over the tops of the chairs and pinned on both sides. Cool huh? 
 
 
 
 I added the white napkins to lighten the table and give it a crisp look.
 Don't be afraid to mix and match patterns. I used polka dot, paisley and zebra print. AND IT WORKS! Enjoy the rest of the pics.
                                                                              
 
 


   Thanks for stopping by!
 
  2 your home,
 
Lory

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
