One of the fun things about each new season is that it gives us women an opportunity to use our creativity in home decorating. God created this earth and everything in it with thoughtfulness and beauty, and I believe He has put that desire to create and to surround ourselves with beauty inside of us. If you love decorating but don’t want to spend a lot of money, you can find bargains at this time of year everywhere. I found a decorative plate, fall fruit, a candle, and a scarecrow, all for less than $27 at Walmart.
Start with the decorative plate and fruit:
Arrange your plate however you like. I added a pumpkin pie scented candle for the center – the smell is delicious! The large green leaves contrast well with the orange pumpkin, the orange-red berries, orange candle, red apple and pomegranate, and the brown pinecones. This makes a nice centerpiece.**
A new seasonal towel always brightens your kitchen. These pretty ones with orange pumpkins and purple grapes were less than $3, together.
Finally, I found a cute scarecrow for our entry way.
What about you? How have you decorated your home for fall and/or Thanksgiving? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments section below.
