We arranged all of our new-and-slightly-improved fall bounty on the table along with some glass jars from my house. They tend to make an appearance in all of my decorating schemes. They go with everything and I have a variety of sizes so that they hold nearly anything. Or at least anything under a foot tall.
We ended up with enough apples to make some of them into little name cards! I just wrote the names on tiny little tags from the office store and tied them to the apple stems. Super easy. Super cute. My favorite kind of decorating.
I should note that yes, I live in Texas, so yes, the leaves are actually still green. And I'm betting that these leaves will stay green and gold for quite a while, so I'm thinking about taking this theme to the mantle until Thanksgiving and adding in some spray painted pumpkins. I know it sounds a little crazy, but seriously, spray painted pumpkins are *beautiful!* Similar to the Martha Stewart glittered pumpkins but even easier.
I'm always on the lookout for more fast and frugal decorating ideas. What are your favorites for fall?
