Going Natural with Fall Decorating

As you prepare to decorate for Fall, why not look around you for great Fall décor? As the leaves begin to change colors, clip a branch with vibrant colors. Shop at the farmers market for seasonal gourds, squash and pumpkins. With a lack of rain, there are many dried corn stalks ready to be used for decorating.

Pumpkin Centerpieces

Loi Palmer’s pumpkin centerpieces will be the highlight of your Thanksgiving tables this year. To make the centerpieces, use real pumpkins and poke small holes in the top to stick in fall floral picks. Loi used picks from Hobby Lobby that included beaded leaves and a pheasant with feathers. Finish the centerpieces with raffia and place green apples and votive candles amongst the raffia. When the season is over, remove decorative picks and raffia and store for next year.
