Fall Decor! September 27, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Andrew & Amanda LeJeune @ 2:27 am

Today was productive for me.  I:

  • Cleaned the bathroom
  • Made Jell-O
  • Put out Fall decor
  • Stapled and screwed the dining chair seat to the frame
  • Made dinner (chicken, mac-n-cheese, and fresh corn on the cob)
  • Cleaned off our dresser top

I love days when things get done and I have energy to do them.  Thought I’d share my fall decor from today. Andrew liked it.

table decor with old root beer bottles and wheat

I used three old Root Beer bottles I’ve kept and some wheat I got from Hob Lob. I put down a brown scarf/runner under it. Flanking those bottles are two vintage ceramic bowls that have fall colored veggies on them.  I filled them with mini pine cones I scavenged during our family Colorado vacation this summer.  I have plans to use them during Christmas time too.

Again I used the wheat and put them in glass mason jars and put one on each side of the mantle for balance. I like them 🙂

I’ve always wanted to do this and finally did. I stuffed a bunch of scrap fall-themed fabric pieces together in a glass vase. I then set it on top of a piece of burlap I had. Burlap = Fall!

Here I just switched out our normal blue candle for a plum colored one and put the jewel toned pillow cover on one existing pillow. I also threw another Indian/patchwork/fall colored pillow cover on another one for the couch but I don’t have a picture of that.

Waste not want not. I took the leftover stubble from cutting the wheat and tied it with a brown ribbon and set it on my brown leaf plate. This is setting on an end table in the living room.

Well there you have it. Beginnings of fall decorating! Loving it!  Can’t wait to grab a few pumpkins here soon 🙂
