Fall Nature Vignette

I wasn't even sure if I was going
to do any outdoor decorating this year.
But, the weather was beautiful
and I couldn't resist the call of the outdoors.

Before I knew it I was snipping a bit from here
and a bit from there and putting it all together
to make a natural fall arrangement.

I used some dry strawflowers
from a flowerbed I cleaned out,
some dried weeds and some fall branches.

I added the driftwood from our spring holiday
at the ocean for interest.

A simple fall arrangement
made from things around the yard,
and it didn't cost me a penny!

Fall Leaves Tablescape

One of my favorite things about fall
is all the different colors of leaves on the trees.

So I decided to do a simple tablescape
of fall leaves.

I started with a two-toned brown tablecloth
with a delicate leaf pattern
which also has a bit of shine.

I added a candle centerpiece with a leaf theme
and then added some extra foilage down the table.

The orange charges add some fall color.

I then added my favorite plates 
and added a green accent plate.

It needed a little something else
so I dug out these little plates
that feature birds.

After all, another one of my favorite things
about fall is watching the migrating birds.

I little fall leaf candle tops it all off.

Some fall colored napkins
and beaded napkin rings
bring together all the colors of fall.

What are your favorite colors of fall?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
