Happy Fall! I know it isn't really fall yet but I have been inspired by everyone out in blog world to do something fall-ish...it is raining today and the temperatures have dropped ....it feels like a fall day so I created a
My dining room normally is blue and white you can see it HERE no orange but for fall I decided to change it up a bit. I started with some burlap to cover up my makeshift particle board "table leaf"
oh it is so pretty and layered it with this fun orange and cream print...I will show you my lovely uglier than mud particle board "table leaf" section in the coming days and what I do to cover it up.
I had this creamy crackle vase and bought some curly twigs and orange berry vines and plopped them in it for an airy look.
Since I normally have only blue and white in my dining room... I decided to changed the blue and white fabric on the chairs to orange and white...I will show you this simple DIY no sew treatment that can change a chair in minutes tomorrow on the blog.
I Found these cool rusty metal thinga-ma-bobs at michaels and thought they would give a "manly" touch to the table.
These blingy nubbins are for the ladies...pier one on clearance...oh yeah!!
You can see a dangling particle of my "chandy" hanging down in the pic (top right)
So....my mom and sis know how much I love to entertain and tablescape and they bought me these little wire pumpkin place card holders! Presh!
Wish I could find more of these rusty metal thinga-ma-bobs..remember I used them in this "A little bit country A little bit elegant" tablescape HERE
For the centerpiece mishmash I just added lots of different kinds of pumpkins in different textures ...faux plastic, twiggy, jeweled and some cute velvet ones I just made. I Will have a quick and easy "tute" on how to make them next week.
My daughter...Madeline left these cool rusty metal lanterns when she moved away and they work perfectly on the table.
I'm thinkin about making burlap skirt covers for the chair seats..whaddya think?
I love adding framed photos of the family in fall leaves to this "scape"...it brings back sweet memories.
Happy fall all ya 'alls!
