Touches of Fall

Last weekend the weather was absolutely perfect here. The high was about 80 degrees and the low was a pleasant 64 degrees. It is finally starting to feel like Fall in our neck of the woods. So we opened up the windows and enjoyed the day/evening. Since the weather was nice and it  was such a lovely day, I felt that this would be the perfect time to share my "Touches of Fall" with you. I keep my Fall decorating at a minimum by doing just enough to welcome the season.


Isn't this potpourri beautiful? It's not only beautiful but it smells yummy too. You can read about it  here. I also added the artwork and it happens to be one of my favorite pieces. A friend of mine picked it up at a yard sale years ago. Thanks Fannie!


I found these cute little pumpkins at the Dollar Tree. I think they look marvelous with the ginger jar.



 I couldn't resist, so the white pumpkins were added to the foyer chests as well.

 
I also did a quick and easy center piece for my dining room table. I took the wreaths that I used on my front doors a few years ago, and placed them on the table. I added a couple of lanterns a few pumpkins/acorns and a scrumptious animal print bow. Voila! Did I mention I love animal print?
 

 



 

 
Have you done any Fall decorating lately?
 
 Thanks for stopping by,

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
