Remember that slick courter, Fall? He wooed me with his woodsy cologne and crisp new suit. I’ve accepted his proposal. We’re to be married when afternoon weather falls below 70. Until then, I’m planning our wedding:
Here’s how I did it:
I nestled these cute little pupka pods that look just like mini-pumpkins in my Southern Living at Home mini-vases.
Brooke and I pulled all the dried kernels off three stalks of indian corn and scattered them around this yummy essential oil candle, in the middle of a shallow bamboo bowl.
I filled a globe lantern with little pine cones and tied a bow around it.
I drizzled some bird seed around a chunky candle. This still needs something–any ideas?
Everyting rests on four brown napkins I dug out of storage.
In the living room I replaced shells with stones:
and autumn-ized our Tree for All Seasons (an idea I got from KONOS).
I’m waiting for a cool afternoon to work on our felted leaf garland…umm, I mean wedding veil.
NOTE: Because God’s single message to me recently has been “Use What You Have,” (which is not what you want to hear while you’re drooling over some snazzy sweater in the store window), I pulled out all things “fall” from storage and went to work. Mind you, I don’t store seasonal decor and I haven’t decorated for fall in over six years!
