I know we’re still technically in the Summer season when we hit September, but in all fairness Fall does begin later in the month, and I am ready for some Fall. I am not a hot weather person, although I’m not a cold weather person either, but if I had to choose I would definitely prefer the Fall season over any other time of the year. 🙂
Since Fall is on my mind, I was inspired by it for this month’s wallpaper and printable! I took one of my favorite designs from the 2018 Printable Calendar, and changed up the colors to represent Fall, and I love it! Anyone else ready for some cooler temps?
With fall in the air, I was inspired to create a fall centerpiece using simple decor after coming across the online flower delivery company, BloomNation. Because I had taken a couple of floral arranging classes back in college I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at floral arranging again. I was never good at it, and I’m still no where close to a professional, but it was obviously one of the classes I enjoyed going to most. It was fun, and on few occasions a little stressful trying to come up with something that looked good. I was always so impressed with what my classmates’ arrangements, and how different ours were from each other when given a specific assignment. You can create so many different arrangements, and the best part about flowers is, it will (for the most part) always end up looking beautiful.
One of my favorite flowers are hydrangeas, so when I saw it in the shop I immediately knew I had to use it. I always thought of it as a spring/summer flower, and quickly turned to Pinterest to see if I could use hydrangeas in a fall arrangement. And to my surprise, I found a bunch of beautiful fall ideas using hydrangeas.
I knew I wanted to make my centerpiece pretty neutral in color, but wanted to add a few fall colors to the arrangement without making it look overly colorful. Aside from hydrangeas, I used daisies, mums, carnations, lilies, and added some wheat to give it a little bit more of a fall/Thanksgiving appeal. I added some of the wheat to the napkins, and used a striped burlap ribbon to wrap around the napkins and mason jars. This was such a simple and easy table to put together, and not to mention, great for a small budget!
I’m also sharing these fun Thanksgiving tags that you can incorporate on your table by wrapping it around your napkins and holding it in place with string or raffia, add them to a treat bag, or on a take home box for your guests on Thanksgiving.
If you’re not feeling confident in your flower arranging ability, or don’t have the time to make one yourself, try using a flower delivery to save you time and choose from a variety of options to give your table that fall look you’re going for!
P.S. See where I got my inspiration for this centerpiece on my Pinterest board.
Happy Fall! It’s officially fall today, so I thought I’d celebrate with a new “Love Fall” printable I created. The best part about this printable is you can use it all the way up until the end of November. Happy Fall Y’all!
The first day of fall is just around the corner and to celebrate, here are 5 of my favorite FREE fall printables! I love how elegant and talented these bloggers are! Definitely going to decorate my home with these. Follow me on pinterest for some more fabulous finds!
Here’s another “Fall” banner that you can use for the next few months. I have to admit, the ink was low on my printer so the color did not come out the way it’s suppose to on the banner, but you get the idea. 🙂 I used hemp for the string, and I love it because it helps keep the paper in place without having to use any tape or tying knots. Print on cardstock and you’re good to go!
