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 stem to attach the bow above.


 If creating a wreath is not an option you can purchase a ready made wreath instead. Just hang it and you're done. How's that for instant gratification?


To add a touch of fall to your entry or any room in your home, simply place beautiful potpourri in your favorite bowl, dish or container. Not only does the potpourri make for a delightful display, it smells good too!

No time for potpourri, let a scented plugin do the trick. Simply plug it in and in no time, your house will be filled with the scents of the season.


Don't know what to do with those pumpkins? Try grouping them together to create interest and impact. This idea can work with whatever extra Fall stuff you may have. Just be sure to group like objects together.


Have an empty vase available? If so, you can create this easy floral arrangement. Fill a vase half full with plastic bags. The bags will be used to hold the floral stems in place. Next, stick the stems/bushes of your choice into the vase and arrange them however you like. Then find the perfect place to display your arrangement.


To make your guest feel super special nix the plain white paper towels. and display beautiful napkins in your powder bath that relay a message, quote, or scripture. Need more ideas? Keep scrolling!!!

For just $2 each, you can add a splash of Fall to your kitchen with these lovely dish towels.(Walmart) Just hang them over your cabinet door/doors and you're done!


Pressed for time, instead of an elaborate table setting like the one pictured above try doing something a lot simpler like the table setting below.


The only thing needed to add a pop of Fall to this table setting was a fall leaf. It doesn't get much easier than that. You like?


Need a quick and easy centerpiece? Fill your favorite accessory with pine cones, pumpkins. acorns or whatever you have on hand. You will be amazed at how good it actually looks.




 

Lastly, to make your over night guest/guests feel loved, place a scented candle inside of a gift box. Then add a bow. Your guest will always remember this kind gesture.
So, there you have it. My easy last minute ideas for Fall. If you found any of these ideas to be useful, I would love to hear from you. Please leave a comment below.



Happy Fall,

Lory

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
