In Michigan you can always feel when it’s fall. The air changes. If you live somewhere with four full season you know what I mean. It smells like fall. The leaves start to turn and fall, sweaters and scarves and boots are the new wardrobe staples and running to your nearest cider mill for donuts, cider, hayrides and corn mazes is the only acceptable thing to do on a weekend. You feel me?!
The change of seasons is also when I love to change some things up around our home too. I nearly always kick off mid-September with changing up our front porch decor. I add more pansies, pumpkins, potted kale & huge oversized lanterns.
Next up, by October, is putting up some fall decor. I can’t say that Halloween is my favorite holiday. Black and orange are not necessarily my favorite colors, so I’m always challenging myself to find decor that not only will my kids enjoy, but that fits with the vibe of our great room. This is just a fun table to accessories! It’s the perfect depth and width to make a statement, but not completely overwhelm the room with themed crap. That’s not my vibe.
With each piece I pick up or out I think, “Do I really love it?!” and “Does this fit my rustic GLAM vibe?!” and if both questions are a big NO, I don’t keep it or I take it back or just leave it right there on the shelf.
So this table is nothing more than candle holders and candlesticks I already owned mixed with a small apothecary jar, a sparkly glitter pumpkin and a pearl-y bejeweled skull, plus a real marble tombstone peeking out in the back. Sure, it’s Halloween decor, but it’s not orange & black… YES!
