Even with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I hadn't spent much time decorating the house for Autumn. I had gathered my little pile of pumpkins and gourds and tossed them in a vintage tool chest on the buffet in the dining room. They were starting to look a little tired, or I was getting a little tired of the look, so when Stacey contacted me to participate in a Thanksgiving vignette party it was just the kick in the pants that I needed to get off my duff and start digging for a fresher look.
I headed for the
dungeon basement and started digging. I had actually forgotten about the brown transferware tureen I had, and that candle left over from last years Christmas clearance sales. I had a bit of last years foraged bittersweet tucked away too, along with an old frame and some faux ivy in my craft stash.
I brought my Boston ferns inside last night, (good thing because it was 23 degrees outside last night!) and tucked a few sprigs in a clear glass vase along with the bittersweet. Those are not two things I would normally put together but they seem to be working. I like the green, brown and orange color scheme. The green brings a little bit of freshness inside :)
Bright and beautiful, thanks Stacey!
