This shelf is right inside our front door and so I wanted it to have lots of fall touches. Not thrilled with the flower arrangement on top, but I haven't had time to re-do it yet. I will. I love decorating for fall more than any other season. It just fits me and the colors work really well with our furniture and color scheme.
One of my favorite things, are these little gourds and mini-pumpkins that I buy every year at this little farmer's market. I thought these were fun with their long, twisted stems and I always think they look good nestled on some raffia in a clay pot. Raffia is one of my fall go-to things!
This year, I tried something totally different on my table. I kind of just made it up with what I had around the house, but I really liked it when it was done! I like to use coffee beans this time of year too as a decorating tip. They smell good and they look good with most fall colors.
These candle hurricanes were a steal! I bought them on Tuesday at Homegoods, on CLEARANCE (my favorite kind of buy) for $5 each! I love them. Especially with a candle and raffia! The candles are nestled in sand, with coffee beans on top of the sand.
I confess, I have a thing for pumpkins. I don't get into the "halloween" stuff too much, like witches and spiders and jack-0-lanterns (that may change with kids), but I do like different kinds of pumpkins, because I feel like they work all the way until Thanksgiving. These three pumpkins were a fun buy last year, they all have scripture carved in them.
