But here is the thing, I think we often think that most of what we see and love and admire is unobtainable. Either because we don't have the time or the money. I know I did.
So I am here today to show you how I did a little fall decorating with a little cash and still made the touches around the house that aren't over the top but still made that fall impact in my home!
For starters - I am over my vignette-phobia! Check it out! I started unpacking all my dining room stuff and realized that it shouldn't be segregated to the dining room. The candle holder is one that has sat on the center of our dining room table for a couple of years. I just stuck a couple silk leaves in with some corks and I think it gives it a fall touch! I also think it looks great next to my ORB Lamp! Then I have this beautiful Arthur Court silver grapevine tray that I got for Christmas a couple of years ago. Just added a couple of votives and put it on top of my "Savoring Tuscany" book!
I also threw in a few touches around the TV - here is a full shot.
I started with putting a couple leaves and the rest of the leftover berries in my little wire basket. A great pop of color with all my other white accents.
I also spray painted my floor vase with Heirloom White and put some colorful grasses in from the Dollar Store. I think it added a great pop of color in that corner!
I also added some more touches to our dining area. In addition to my fall florals in the pitcher, I also took some of the dollar store leaves I had made a little display under my leaf plates.
My little "leaf" displays were made by weaving the stems together like so. Just twist the wire stems together ...
And then sit the plate in the center and voila - beautiful display! And I just have to untwist the leaves to use them again next year! (Always think ahead!)
So there you go - those are my fall touches. I think I may have spent $5 total on all these little touches. I used a lot of things I already had and added some other items that just fit just right. I am so happy with it - one that I took the time and two that I didn't take a lot of cash to do it!
So what about you? Do you decorate for fall or is that something you normally just admire in magazines or catalogs? I hope I shared some ideas today on how you can make some quick changes without taking a lot of money to do it!
