Colorful leaves make a rustic statement scattered on tables or counters. Bowls of fruit and/or vegetables become art in the right places. Sprays of branches in buckets, jars or vases can transform a room, porch or corner. Arrange candles, pumpkins & gourds in the center of a table on a runner as a centerpiece.
The look of a collection of pumpkins (real or artificial) makes a grand statement. Home Goods has the most unique and realistic pumpkins I have found.
Several ceramic and velvet pumpkins fill my hearth this time of year. They look so real that you have to touch them to know that they aren’t. I like mixing textures. Peppering in velvet pumpkins adds depth, particularly in photos.
I found silk leaves in beautiful fall colors on Amazon. They look like the real thing. I scattered them inside my non-burning fireplace under my hurricane lanterns filled with candles and glimmer strings from Pier One.
My mercury glass addiction was satisfied by illuminated pumpkins I discovered…again at Home Goods. I arranged a trio of them and let them take center stage on my hutch.
