Falling Into Autumn Style

Hello lovelies, did you enjoy your Halloween festivities or partake in any costume cocktail parties?

Well, we had planned to have a nice dinner with friends some time ago, as we usually do every month, but for some reason it didn’t happen until now. So, this weekend will be an autumn harvest style dinner. Since a month had already passed, I was determined to create somewhat of a “tablescape,” or at least give it try for a dose of do-it-yourself decorating. 

I was resolute with the task at hand, and got crafty and inspired by autumn colours. I went to my handy trunk of goodies (including, a wall of trimmings) in search of all things fall: faux fruit, pumpkins, silk leaves, pinecones and many other elements to add to this autumn concoction. 
Of course I could not find the exact scale of pumpkin that I was looking for, so instead of being aggravated I used one of smaller scale, then added more pieces for a different effect than the initial vision. It still worked out. I had the novel idea of adding cinnamon sticks to the centrepiece toward the end of my inspiring decorating journey. 

Ahh, yes, now all that was needed was a clear vase, baskets, and fun placemats to top the table off!
Between using jewellery wire and glue this week, my little hands will surely need some pampering on the weekend. Now that I am slightly exhausted and need to clean up the work area, here’s the result so far and some quick snapshots. What do you think?

Have you decorated for autumn or did you get crafty in the house for Halloween? Next up, as you know the holidays are just around the corner. Ironically, I did happen to even stumble across someone singing Christmas songs already this week. But, let’s talk about that later, shall we?

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  13. Madison, that is absolutely beautiful! I swear you could open your own shop with all the beautiful things you create. People would pay for a centerpiece like that. Have fun at the Autumn Harvest Style Dinner! It's going to be pretty AND have great food! My door wreath is Fall. Not much decor inside, but that arrangement is gorgeous. Have a great weekend.

  15. Well you certainly made an effort and created a lovely seasonal dislpay with the most gorgeous rich colours and textures. Autumn is such an interesting time of year and I can't believe that the shops have been decorated for Christmas for so long. I prefer to wait until after Halloween and our Bonfire Night before thinking about Christmas! I enjoyed some sweet Halloween treats last night with more to finish off tonight! Have a great weekend.

    Liebe Madison! Das sieht so wunderschön aus, Du bist sehr talentiert <3 Hier in Bayern auf dem Land wird Helloween nicht so gefeiert. Ich habe auch unser Haus nicht für den Herbst dekoriert, denn ich bin ein bisschen zu faul für solche Dekorationen. Vor allem das Aufräumen macht mir nicht so viel Spaß ;) Deswegen habe ich mich sehr über Deine schöne Dekoration gefreut :)

    Mir gefallen Deine neuen Kissen für die Küche sehr gut, denn ich mag Blumen auch in der Küche, deswegen haben meine weißen Vorhänge in der Küche auch rote Blumen darauf :) Ich mag alles so gerne, was fröhlich ist! Und die Sachen, die Du kochen möchtest, klingen sehr gut - ich bin mir sicher alles schmeckt toll. Selber koche ich sehr gerne, aber meine Familie braucht ja auch jeden Tag etwas zu essen. Oft koche ich aus dem bekannten, deutschen Kochbuch "Ich helf Dir Kochen" von Hedwig Maria Stuber, aber ich koche auf viele Rezepte nach, die ich im Internet oder in Zeitschriften sehe.

    Ich wünsche Dir einen guten Start in das Wochenende, liebe Madison <3
