We love GOLD! Nothing brings more warmth to a room than candles, and these gorgeously glittered pumpkins are a perfect addition to your Fall or Halloween gathering! Choose various sizes to add dimension to your table, mantle or buffet.

Carefully Carved

This may take time (and patience), but the outcome is impressive! Create your own floral or geometric pattern, cutting only the surface of the pumpkin, punching small holes for lovely whimsical lighting. This makes for wonderful mood lighting for your Fall or Halloween cocktail party!

Edible Décor

Everyone loves big, gorgeous bouquets of flowers at home.  There’s just something about them! We don’t always have a chance to go out and find the perfect bouquet or the time to care for them, but that doesn’t mean you have to go without a beautiful arrangement.  In fact, a quick and simple solution just may be in your refrigerator right now!

Fruits and vegetables make wonderful additions to your kitchen, dinner table or coffee table.

 

Lemon Pop

Lemons add cheer and a pop of color to any room of the house!  Grab your favorite bowl, vase or basket (we all have one) and fill it up with lots of lemons and lemon leaves, if you can find them still attached.  It adds freshness and a wonderful aroma.

 

 

An Apple a Day

3 Ways to Make Your Porch Fall-Ready

It’s one of our favorite times of year!  The weather is cool and crisp, the leaves turn brilliant shades of orange, and the holidays are just around the corner.  The arrival of Fall is so much fun to decorate for, and a great place to begin, is the front porch.  It’s what your neighbors and guests see first about your home, making a welcoming, warm and fuzzy impression.


Mix and Match.

Warm It Up.

Adding color with flowers, like these fiery mums is a great way to bring in the Fall!  Clean, black wooden planters bursting with gorgeous flowers will warm up any porch.  The natural wreath with pine branches and pine cones is perfect for a more traditional look.

Easy Does It.
