It probably helps that B and I got married in October, so our wedding colors were a dark red, orange, and yellow. There were even fake fall-colored leaves in my bouquet. My aunt did a lot of my decorations (and all my flowers), so I got to keep a few of the centerpieces from the rehearsal dinner.
|Yup, I bring this out every year.|
The tablecloth was a random gift from another aunt the first year that I hosted Thanksgiving for my parents when I lived in Virginia (before I was even engaged). She nailed it.
My mom has a friend or something who sells PartyLite, so she keeps buying me stuff. I've never specifically asked for any of them, but every year I seem to end up with another black cat votive holder. They're now my Halloween display for the bar.
|The one in the center has a fishbone in him :)|
All of that stuff was given to me by others. But this year, I decided to add my own touch. I've always loved the idea of wreaths, but when I went to store to get one, it gave me sticker shock. The pretty fall ones were $40 or more! So I did the only logical thing and made my own. Spent about $10 total, and it only took me an hour. I didn't use hot glue, just wire, so I could perhaps re-use the base. And yes, I had to call my mom while walking around Michael's to get her advice on how to do this!
Have you done any seasonal decorating for fall this year?
