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-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!!
