After All It’s Autumn

DSC_0004Autumn decorating can be full of many accessories. Combining them together in just the right way, can create a pleasing fall palette. Small items of the season (white pumpkins), placed in a certain way, can make a festive statement. DSC_0032I love, love, love using lanterns in my designs! The use of three in this display, makes the design feel more abundant. I added a few pumpkins for interest and finished it off with an autumn spray, filled with sunflowers, berries, various foliage and feathers. I topped it with a colorful fall bow and attached the arrangement to the largest lantern.DSC_0048 A simple and quick element to use in your design is a cloche. I placed two ceramic pumpkins under one with some faux fall leaves. The look is impressive without any fuss.DSC_0060 Make a statement centerpiece with just a few items. I took an ivy urn I already had and added small pumpkins and gourds to it. I then placed a larger pumpkin on the top and others at the bottom, to complete the look. Autumn decorating should be fun, festive and full of colorful reminders of the season. While the days are growing short and the nights long, make your home feel warm and cozy with autumn touches here and there.
