The weather has cooled here and it is beginning to feel like Fall! I love Fall it is my favorite season. It is nice weather, holidays are around the corner, and it is football season! This new weather plus my friend has inspired me through her blog http://thehawvers.blogspot.com/search/label/Fall to begin decorating at the Purdy house. I took a trip to the Dollar Tree and got what I thought I needed, pulled out my Fall decorations (I get this seasonal decorating from my Momma), and went to work.
I bought the votive, raffia, and popcorn at the Dollar Tree. I used a candle I already had. This decoration cost me a total of $3.
This glass vase and the candy corn came from the Dollar Tree also. Again I already had the candle, and the raffia went a long way (I still have some left over). This decoration was a total of $2. Not too bad right?
I loved them so much I decided to set them on the entry table to greet our guests. I had purchased my P pumpkin from Hobby Lobby last year when it went 50% off. I had been pining over it for a while, I just needed it to go on sale. I had some leaves left over from last Fall, so I decided to use them around the P pumpkin, and set my new decorations off to the side. My Momma told me you decorate with just one item, or put things together in groups of three. I try hard to stick to that advice.
The part of decorating that I love is taking things I already have and creating something new and decorative. I'm so lucky that Hobby Lobby puts all their stuff on sale (eventually), so I wait. The floral arrangement I waited on until it too was 50% last year, then I snatched it up. I like to have my babes pumpkin pictures displayed during the Fall, so that's what the picture is. The picture is setting on a stack of books covered with a Fall towel I had stored away. The pumpkin is one that my Mother-In-Law got me years ago when we were shopping in Houston, it is beautiful and I think of her every year when I set it out.
I hope I have inspired you, or maybe my friends blog has inspired you, or perhaps the BELOVED Pintrest has inspired you. Whatever the case I can't wait to see what Fall looks like at your house. Leave a comment and your blog, I love to see how other people decorate.
