(I know, I still can't get over what the front of the house looked like pre-paint job! Oh! And on a different note, I've also been up to some other "Front of the House Updates." I'll share those soon!)
This time around, I didn't even start with the front porch, which is unusual for me (I'm quite the sucker for pumpkins and mums). Instead, I was feeling so inspired by the inside seasonal decor I kept stumbling upon on Pinterest and other blogs, that I thought I'd step out of my comfort zone and try this inside fall decorating for myself. My main goal was to create a nice fall tablescape, one that could be left on the table through the month of November. That was where it all started and everything else just kind of fell into place after that... It's like the ball just kept rolling and I LOVED every moment of it! Seriously, I enjoyed putting this together so much that I even stayed up really late, one night, just so I could keep going! After the end result, I'm not sure which gives me more lasting satisfaction -- the way everything looks or just the feeling of accomplishment. It's funny how it's the little things in your home that can give you such pleasure and satisfaction.
Source List (Tablescape):
- Leaf garland -- The Best of Flowers
- Hurricanes -- Hobby Lobby
- Moss -- Michael's
- Wooden bowl -- already owned
- Loose leaves in bowl -- Hobby Lobby
- Votive candles (vases included) -- Hobby Lobby
- Unscented large candles -- Target
- Miniature white pumpkins -- Farmer's Market
- Table runner -- The Gift Box
How do you think I did? Have any of you been creating fall centerpieces for your table? I love the functionality of this and its warm colors. I'm not kidding, I might never take it off!
Come back tomorrow, for Part 2, to see all that's Halloween in our dining room!
