Thursday’s Theme: Fall Flower & Plant Arrangement Ideas

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Only one day stands between us and the official first day of Autumn. So today we are sharing some fall flower and plant arrangement ideas that you can DIY quickly, and in most cases, with items around and outside your home.

DIY Pumpkin Vase | A Pumpkin & A Princess

One of the best vessels for holding plants and flowers this time of year is of course, the pumpkin. For an almost-perfectly cohesive look, use craft pumpkins in place of real pumpkins. Or, carve the top of a real pumpkin and clean it out like you would if you were creating a jack-o-lantern. Place flowers and greenery inside – they will look their best if their stems are trimmed relatively short. You could also place a candle inside and surround it with a mini wreath or strand of bittersweets and leaves.

Fall Mason Jar Vases | Anything & Everything: A DIY Blog

Mason jars are consistent stars of DIY projects, and especially when they are painted with autumn colors and filled with flowers, it’s easy to see why. But if you use Mason jars for canning or food storage and don’t have any to spare, painted coffee tins and similar containers offer just as much charm. Even empty wine bottles can be painted and used for single blooms along a table or mantel.

Fall and Halloween DIY Vases

Of course, what we hope you gain from this this post is how “charming” doesn’t have to mean “complicated.” And fall typically offers items right outside your door. Collect pinecones, colorful leaves, twigs and other natural elements, throw them in a glass vase and voila! Instant seasonal style. A ribbon can help spruce up the look, and potpourri will add even more freshness to your indoor living spaces.

Holiday Tablescape Idea Board

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Kick your holiday or Christmas tablescape up a notch with these ideas (and home accents) for creating the perfect tablescape. As you can see below, a well decorated table should be complementary, if not matching. Incorporating evergreen trees – flocked, wood, ceramic, etc. – brings the whole look together, and makes it easy to transition from holiday to winter (or vice versa). Glass jars filled with white lights or decorated in ribbon are also easy to put together and can be used for anything after the season is over. We like the look of this rustic bowl, and while it could hold candy, desserts (on a liner) or other food items, placing glass ornaments inside creates a sparkling focal point on your table. Collectibles and decorative salt & pepper shakers are perfect for filling spaces or creating a small holiday scene for your dinner and party guests to admire.

*You may notice we left candles off this idea board – that’s because they are a given!
