I am dedicating the title of this post to Tales From An OC Cottage, who has undertaken the monumental task of adding "alicious" to every word in the English language. I think this is a fab-a-licious idea, hence the name of my title. Btw, if you happen to live under a rock and haven't visited the very entertaining blog, do your self a huge favor and go check it out - NOW! This woman is wildly talented and equally hilarious! Seriously.
Okay, now on to my Fall decor. I don't have much. I prefer to decorate for the seasons by using the less is more approach. Instead of putting lots of little things all over the house, I use bigger centerpieces and just put them in a few prominant places throughout. It's easier and well, I'm lazy like that.
Here is the arrangement I threw together using the salvageable pieces I got from a yardsale floral arrangement and other stems I got from Michaels. I like how it turned out and the muted colors blend in well with the rest of the Living Room.
This is the centerpiece on my Dining Room Table. I got these papier mache pumpkins at an auction a couple years ago for $8.
This is actually a wreath that I took from my front door because the jar and candle needed a little something to spruce them up. I like how it turned out and the colors actually match the rug under this chest.
And in the same room I added these mums to my mantle. They were also a little bland, so I added some extra stems for good measure.
Moving to my kitchen, here is a cloche I'm sure you've all seen before. Its from Southern Living at Home, but I got it at a flea market this past weekend for $5. I love how it looks with the candle and fall garland and I can easily change it out for the seasons.
Finally, this is the centerpiece that it not so centered on my island. I put it in the corner like that so I wouldn't have to move it every time I use the island, which is all the time! I picked up most of these pumpkins and gourds at a yardsale over the Summer for $2 in a huge bag filled with fall stuff. I guess nobody was thinking about their fall decor in June.....except me.
And that's it. I've been marveling at all of your wonderful blogs filled with such beautiful Fall decorations and vignettes and centerpieces and mine just pale in comparison. I wish I had your incredible imaginations. Thanks for visiting and go out and enjoy your first official day of Fall!!!!!!
