My Fall Table 2016

Today is the reveal of my Fall table setting. If you like a non traditional setting and lots of animal print you are going to love this table. As always, every year my goal is to create a table setting by using what I already have. So the first thing I did was shop the house for inspiration. This year my inspiration came from the animal print throw shown in the picture. Since the throw wasn't big enough to cover the entire table I used two yards of black fabric right off the bolt. Using the black fabric created another layer, and I love layering. Everything I chose for this table setting works amazingly well with the inspirational piece. So, I continued to add different elements to the table until I was completely satisfied with the end result.




Since the table is neutral, I used gold place mats,copper plates and metallic pumpkins to add a bit of sparkle. For the centerpiece I filled a huge seashell with pine cones, pumpkins and acorns. Instead of using candles this year, I topped the candlesticks with a pair of hammered drapery finials.



Check out the chandelier! It's feather garland. I simply wrapped the garland around the chandelier and used some of the existing feathers to hold it in place. This is my budget friendly version of an Antler Chandelier. Pretty clever huh! You like?





Fabric swatches were used as napkins and the floral pics placed inside the napkins add, a touch of the unexpected. The animal print pumpkins are the icing on the cake.






This shot was taken from above. Wow! I think this table is absolutely stunning!!!




Even though all the swatches/napkins are different they still work well with the rest of the table. All the different patterns adds interest to the table. Keep scrolling to see what I mean.

























So what do you think of "My Fall Table?" I absolutely love this table and I can't wait to share it with friends and family.


Happy Fall Y'all!

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
