Fall Wreath Revisit

I kept staring at my front door wreath, thinking it was not full enough. I was bored this weekend so I added an additional piece of green garland and a few more eucalyptus picks.

White Pumpkin Fall Tablescape

I broke apart the original floral arrangement and made two smaller arrangements. I took the greenery from the kitchen table centerpiece and some of the greenery from the original floral arrangement and placed it on top of the navy blue table runner. I purchased three large white pumpkins from Hobby Lobby and added in the other smaller white pumpkins and navy pumpkins purchased previously. I did not change too much on the foyer table. I added one of the smaller floral arrangements and switched out the pillars with taller candlesticks. I also switched out the navy pumpkins for white.   I have now moved on to decorating the back patio. I have found cute fall pillows and other decorations in typical fall colors. I am looking forward to pumpkins going on sale so I can finish up my patio decorating and share photos.

The one below was a mix of left over boxwood and cypress that I stuck into one of the grapevine wreaths I made with my parents years ago. Now, my aunt made this wreath below. I just made the bow and attached one of her wooden stars. Decorations My aunt’s Christmas theme this year was “vintage.” She used a lot of my grandmother’s decorations like these ornaments. We found a piece of fury fabric and used it to emulate snow for the Christmas village. …
