I did a little Autumn nesting on Monday…
It felt good to pack up all the shells and sea glass…I’m ready to snuggle right into Autumn but it takes a little time. Decorating for any season involves all 5 senses. So this week that’s what I’m working on. First I pulled out some things that looked like fall…I shop my whole house when I decorate for each seasons, looking for anything I can bring into the living area.
I love the inexpensive leaf garland. There’s a lot you can use it for. This little wreath is just a garland !
Candles are another wonder for Autumn … in the South it’ll be awhile before it’s cool enough to have a fire, so candles give a warmth to the room without all the heat.
Pumpkin colored fabric warms up the dinning room table…fabric is another easy way to decorate for any season. I have an emotional reaction to scrumptious fabric…strange, I know. (Isn’t the centerpiece pretty? It was one of the last things mom made for me. I love the soft color of the vase)
That versatile leaf garland can be used for garland and wreaths but also for lots of other things. Use a couple of leaves and twine for napkin rings. This muted tealish-blue is my new favorite color. I’m using it for Christmas decorating this year and I’m determined to sneak it in everywhere. I’ve discovered I love the color mixed in with almost every other color.
Remember this fun little Autumn craft? I posted instructions here.
I’m not quite done decking the halls for fall but it’s a good start…Are you warming up your house yet? Love to you today Peeps…
