More Fall

I'm slowly getting my house ready for fall.  I pulled all my fall decor down from the attic today and got to work.  It just puts me in a good mood to decorate for fall, even though it's 100 degrees outside :)  I did a post similar to this last year with my fall decor so if you already saw it I'm sorry.  It was actually the first blog post I ever did, so we'll just say I'm feeling a little nastalgic!  It's a little different and I've made a few additions.  I love these leaves from the dollar store.  I'm not sure they still have them this year, but I hope they do.  They are very pretty, not plasticy like some fake leaves, and the stem is wired so you can easily attach them to things.

So, I started with these leaves from the dollar store and of course if you can't find these exact leaves there's plenty out there you could use.

and spraypainted some sticks silver...I find the more "interesting" the stick, the better.  Meaning the more branches and curves it has the better it looks.

I will probably add a few more sticks just to fill it in a bit, off to the backyard I go!

I also added an extra wreath I had to the tablescape by placing it around the bottom of the vase.  It adds a little more texture and color.

I also added a leaf to the napkin ring at each place setting for an added punch of color...

I found this fun silver pumpkin and gourd at Homegoods last year, I love that place!

This is lovely! I love how the silver vases with the brown candles really add some depth to the whole look! So sophisticated! :)
