FALL DECOR: THANKSGIVING TABLE AND HOME DECOR

VISUAL FEASTS

THERE IS A CRISPNESS TO THE AIR
EVEN HERE IN CALIFORNIA
ESPECIALLY IN THE EVENING
AND THE LEAVES FROM MY NEIGHBOR'S MAPLE TREE, NOW GOLD,
ARE BLANKETING MY WALKWAY

FALL HAS COME
AND WITH IT THE COLORS OF SPICE
AND SOON
THE AROMA OF BAKING AND
THE MINGLING OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS

THANKSGIVING.
LONG BEFORE THE DINNER IS SERVED
THE SETTING SHOULD BE A FEAST
FOR THE EYES

Martha Stewart
WARM YOUR HOME WITH NATURES BOUNTY
IN ARTFUL ARRANGEMENTS

THE SCENT OF FRESH EVERGREENS
GARLANDS OF NUTS AND BERRIES
PINECONES AND RIBBON
OR A SIMPLE DISPLAY IN A FRESH WHITE BOWL
OF PEARS AND PINECONES

THE WELCOME SHOULD BEGIN AT THE DOOR

FILL YOUR HOME WITH THE WARMTH OF THE SEASON
THE AROMAS OF CITRUS, PINE AND CLOVES


Pottery Barn
 CREATE NATURAL CENTERPIECES
AND ADD THE SHIMMER OF GLITTER  AND  GLASS
ELEVATE THE HUMBLE PUMPKIN BY USING IT AS A VESSEL
FOR A BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET

CREATE STUNNING TABLE PLACESETTINGS
FROM SIMPLE ELEMENTS
VELVET RIBBON AND RHINESTONE BUCKLES
EMBRACE A SIMPLE LINEN NAPKIN


AND VINYL LETTERING  SPEAKS QUIETLY TO CANDLELIGHT


A TEASEL POD DOUBLES AS A PLACECARD HOLDER.
ADD A SPRITZ OF GOLD SPRAY PAINT TO MAKE IT GLAMOROUS
HUMBLE VEGETABLES ARE MADE ELEGANT SURROUNDING A CANDLE
AND TIED WITH SILKEN RIBBON

Martha Stewart

THE PERFECTION OF AN AUTUMN LEAF AND THIN VELVET RIBBON
ADORN THE TABLE

HANGING FROM A CHANDELIER ON NEARLY INVISIBLE STRING
AUTUMN LEAVES LOOK FROZEN IN THE ACT OF FALLING

SILVER PUMPKINS CREATE TABLESCAPE MAGIC


ETCHED GLASS HURRICANES
MAKE ELEGANT CANDLE HOLDERS
AT THE KIDS TABLE, AN ARMADA AWAITS TO SHOW THEM TO THEIR SEATS


PINECONES ARE PERFECT FOR HOLDING PLACECARDS
ADD SOME SPRAY GLUE AND FINE GLITTER FOR INSTANT SPARKLE

SPRINKLE YOUR TABLE WITH CANDLELIGHT
THE WARM GLOW MAKES EVERYONE MORE BEAUTIFUL!
TOP AN URN WITH A FRESH GLITTERED WHITE PUMPKIN
