Fall Kitchen Tour – 2017

I love fall!!  I always start decorating at the sight of the first falling leaf.  The colors and tones that emerge from nature during this time of year are so cozy and warm so I relish this time of year.  Today, I am giving you a small Fall Kitchen Tour of the decor I have created to get started for this fall season.  Thank you for stopping by to see it!

Fall Kitchen Tour

In a recent post, I quoted Albert Camus who once said: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”  I adore the colors of FALL, especially those that occur naturally…browns, golds, moss greens, burnt oranges.  Hence, the inspiration behind this post and this fall centerpiece for my kitchen island!  Welcome to my Fall Kitchen Tour.

Fall-Thanksgiving Table Setting-2017

When one holiday ends, another begins here…immediately! After waking up from the sugar coma from Halloween, I get busy working on my Thanksgiving table setting.  Typically, I start with the centerpiece to set the color palate.  This year, I bought the moss arrangement to use on my table year around, so I wanted to work with it for this table setting.  It is totally natural and provides wonderful, organic texture.  I really like using it in lieu of using fresh flowers, which I think is a must usually.

Dollar Tree Halloween Table Setting

As demonstrated in my recent blog post Dollar Tree Fall/Thanksgiving Table Setting, beautiful, creative table settings do not have to be expensive!  Based on the feedback and positive comments from my last Dollar Tree post, I decided to create another table setting with ONLY items purchased from my local Dollar Tree Store. Surprisingly, this particular table setting cost less than $40!!

Personally, I am not much into Halloween, but with kiddos around, they are always asking for “real” decorations, not just pumpkins and flowers.  Imagine that…oh, the perils of kids with a mom who is a designer.  So, I decided to oblige and create a Dollar Tree Halloween Table Setting.

Benjamin Franklin famously said, “A penny saved is a penny earned”.  I say save those pennies!!
