Summer is over, but its too early for me to put out Halloween decor so I started taking down the summer stuff and revamping the house with colors of fall. I really love the organe, green, and dark red colors so I decided redo the centerpiece on the dining room table with those colors.
I started with a base-which I chose layered fabric. I used two fabric cream colored place mats and pinned them together with a safety pin to achieve a "table runner" look.
I then centered a round green and white toile placemat, added an iron serving tray and a green vase for the floral arrangement.
I gathered up all the orange, yellow, and green floral stems I had (which happen to be floral that I got on sale at Pier One several years ago), then started added the floral stems to the vase until I achieved the look I was going for.
I shoved spanish moss in between the flowers to hide the gaps and give some texture.
NOTE: decorating for fall my cause your hubby to insist you do some fall organizing and clean out your "supply" room (aka junk roon).

This is so beautiful. I just love the pop of the hot pink flowers and the pastel linens paired agains the rustic looking furntiure. Beautiful! This is a Nell Hills design. If you have never been to Nell Hills I suggest going. There is one in KC, north of the river at Briarcliff Village and of course the orignal in Atchison, KS. I love their desgin and always look forward to seeing their seasonal decor.

Since I am new to blogging, I figured I would start the first couple of posts by introducing myself and telling you a litle about me. This is old news for some of you who know me already, but for those that don't, here are pictures of our second house. My man and I both own homes but we moved into his a year ago and mine is in limbo....to rent or sell....that is the question. ..said in my best Shakespear voice of course. :)
