Autumn Accents

Life can delight you in the most unexpected of ways. Today I traveled to Boston to visit clients. On my walk to their home, I took a turn down a typical Beacon Hill road and found myself in front of a gorgeous display of Fall festivity. The residents of the neighborhood had adorned their window boxes with incredibly detailed and beautiful displays of flowers, pumpkins, and greenery. I couldn’t help but stop and admire the view, snapping a few pictures of my favorite window boxes along the way, including the one above.

Autumn is a season for beauty and warm colors, like reds, oranges, and golds. As I admire the changing leaves outside my window, I find myself drawn to some of the new Fall fabrics that reflect the changing season. Look below to see some of my favorites!

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and there is no better holiday to gather all your loved ones and share in memories new and old. It’s one of my favorite times of the year. The combination of good food, beautiful fall decorations, and family members make it a day to be cherished.

And why not make your decorations as loved as the company? Below are some cute and unique ideas to add a special splash to your Thanksgiving table. Try some out and, if you like the result, send me the photo! I would love to see what you create.

Here are some fantastic ideas to spice up your candles during Thanksgiving. The first suggestion is apples candles. Hollow out the top of several apples and place a tea candle inside, creating a cute centerpiece for any table.

But fruits aren’t the only way decorate a candle. Below is another example, this time using vegetables to add a little flavor.

Finally, take Thanksgiving back to its roots in this candle decoration. Pour split peas, dried beans, and corn kernels into a clear glass jar or vase and place a candle on top.

How simple is this? And yet it would look so beautiful on your table.
Pumpkins and gourds are another great centerpiece that never go out of style! Paint one white and adorn it with bittersweet berries like above or stack a group of pumpkins and gourds in glass vases like below, and you have a simple but beautiful decoration.

This amazing decoration pictured above was made with dollar store glasses and alphabet stickers, and then filled with cinnamon sticks, acorns, and pinecones! Together, all the materials make a super cute centerpiece for a mantel or even a table.

Fall in Love with Fall Fabrics

Fall is famous for its warm and vibrant colors. From the changing leaves to fresh-picked apples and pumpkins, you just have to look outside to see the bright colors everywhere.

However, you can bring those comforting shades into your own home to keep the perfect feeling of fall all year round. The changing of the season also brings new fabric books to my workroom. Below are some samples from my newest books. Which one will you “fall” in love with?
