This year I am trying to do my fall holiday decorations in a more simplistic way, using natural-themed elements that with just a bit of gentle tweaking, will take me through both Halloween and Thanksgiving. I am also trying to limit the use of orange as it really doesn't blend well with the other colors in my home. So...here is the centerpiece I put together for the kitchen table.
The idea came from this photo I saw in the October issue of Country Living magazine, somehow though along the way it kind of took off on it's own!
Instead of the bird silhouettes I used these two little iron birds
By stacking two Martha Stewart cake stands with two of her cupcake stands I was able to get the height that I needed. I used a product called, Fun Tac, left over from my teaching days, to hold it securely together.
I had all of the fruit with the exception of the grapes. Most of it, including the sparkly pumpkins, came from Pic-n-Save, they always had the best holiday decorations; Big Lots just isn't the same.
Although this turned out to be a lot more opulent then my inspiration photo I really do like it and I think it adds just the holiday touch I was looking for in my kitchen.
Thank you for visiting me. I hope you will come back soon.
