I'm looking forward to Fall.
I'm looking forward to cooler weather, warmer colors, gathering with family and the aroma of pies in the oven. I'm crossing my fingers that will be possible for me and for all of us in the Covid 19 pandemic.
I'm disappointed that Halloween has to be curtailed, sorry ladies .... no Halloween Party this year. The Black Hat Society is in hiatus.
(moment of sad silence)
Ok, I'm over it.
(I really miss you guys)
Let's talk FALL.
because masks or no masks, we are still having Turkey.
Pandemic or no pandemic, Fall is here and with it reds, golds and burnished browns, sweaters and flannel, nights with a nip in the air, spices, apples, cider, pumpkins, and family.
(Someone please tell the weather that Fall is here.... it was like 90 today. . .)
I'm all about bringing in the warm colors of Fall and nature for the season. Here are my top project picks for the season - and if you decide to do any of them I fully expect pictures!
THE FRONT PORCH/DOOR
I LOVE ACORNS
I have no idea why I love these little nuggets - but these ideas using them in various ways add a little Fall to the home. (These are usually artificial (sometimes with real caps) but look real and are very adorable.)
Acorns with a battery candle (since these things are flammable) for a beautiful centerpiece
or buy them pre-made here.
More wool felt balls
These adorable acorn treats! Not a decoration - unless you count topping cupcakes - but make these from mini nutter butters and hershey kisses - then hide them or they will never make it to the cupcakes.
NAPKIN RINGS AND PLACECARDS
The big dinner is coming up and if you are hosting, you have a lot on your plate besides delicious food. You have to dress that table, and I rarely have time for elaborate settings, so I favor these simple but elegant looks - just a little planning ahead of time - like googling where to find pheasant feathers... and how to emboss name tags...
