October completely through me for a loop, and November has taken me by storm…where is the time going? Approximately October 30th I realized I still hadn’t decorated for fall, and I had a plethora of things available to display for the festivities that the calendar claimed were quickly approaching. Seeing I had all of one day to prepare for Halloween, I opted to completely glaze over that holiday and prepare for “fall” instead. If I wouldn’t be prepared for Halloween, at least I’d have a month to enjoy the Thanksgiving decor.
Without further ado here’s a few pics to my holidays straight.
The good thing about decorating so late is you can find GREAT deals- thanks to Michael’s for having 60-80% off all their fall decor! The Pumpkins I had left over from our wedding decor. This center piece is actually 2 wreaths that I laid on top of each other to add some depth..price tag: $3.00 for both
You may be able to see in the background I added some glittery fall garland to our buffet, put a few pictures into the mix and a 3-piece candle display to the center for some height. These were all things I had (lots of pretty fall garland from our wedding as you will see throughout).
Next up- the kitchen. One of the things I loved about our house was the ability to decorate on top of the cupboards. In the next 2 pictures I didn’t do much- just added some fall garland (again left over from the wedding) and rearranged some things to spice it up a bit.
To add just a little touch on the counter, I took my beloved set of apothecary jars (the birthday present from the husband- good taste huh), and added whole coffee beans. Again thanks to Michael’s the fall fruit mix was merely 30 cents.
Now with a little bit of Thanksgiving spirit, I’m in the mood to cook and bake. I’ll save that savory post for later 🙂
