Fall Kitchen Tour-2017

Houzz - Modern Finds And More - Shop Now

In a recent post, I quoted Albert Camus who once said “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”  I adore the colors of FALL, especially those that occur naturally…browns, golds, moss greens, burnt oranges.  Hence, the inspiration behind this post and my fall centerpiece for my kitchen island!

Fall-Thanksgiving Table Setting-2017

Houzz - Modern Finds And More - Shop Now

Albert Camus once said “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”  I love the colors of fall and using them in my home, especially the ones that occur naturally…browns, golds, moss greens, burnt oranges.  Hence, the inspiration for my Thanksgiving table setting.

Dollar Tree Halloween Table Setting

Benjamin Franklin famously said, “A penny saved is a penny earned”.  I say save those pennies!!

As demonstrated in my recent blog post Dollar Tree Fall/Thanksgiving Table Setting blog, beautiful, creative table settings do not have to be expensive!  Based on the feedback and positive comments from my last Dollar Tree post, I decided to create another table setting with ONLY items purchased from my local Dollar Tree store, but for Halloween!  This particular table setting cost less than $40!!  Personally, I am not much into Halloween, but with kiddos around, they are always asking for “real” decorations, not just pumpkins and flowers.  Imagine that…oh, the perils of kids with a mom who is a designer.  So, I decided to oblige.
