I scored a few new goodies on sale this year to add to my harvest decor. These giant fiberstone pumpkins are by far my favorite! I got these at half off and they were still a pretty penny but aren't they gorgeous tucked in our landscaping to greet friends?
There are few singles tucked here and there as well. Those mums are from the burlap mini bags project last year. I can't believe they came back out this year. This was a fun surprise as I obviously didn't get them planted properly.
I LOVE the breakfast nook this year. That scarf (a steal at A to Z for $6) brings a bright pop of color to the area. The actual centerpiece is sort of an accidental design...
I found this rusty wire basket tucked in the sale closet at my favorite store (only $12 - a steal in my opinion). Anyway, I carried it out and put it in the back of my bestie's car. When we got home we were gathering my stuff from her car to take in and she threw that burlap bag in the basket. I love how it folded in there and it inspired me to leave as is and tuck a few fall goodies in to complete the look. Accidental design happens a lot around here!
Finally, I scored a pretty fall garland for 75% off (or $12 - woo hoo) at my favorite store as well. I love that the colors still represent fall but are more muted. It was the perfect addition to my mantel.
Well that's about all I have for my harvest decor this year. The funny thing is I'm taking it all down this weekend and starting my Christmas decorating. I haven't been able to enjoy the holidays as much the past two years so I'm breaking a long-standing family tradition and decorating before Thanksgiving. I can't wait to hear what my mom says when I host the family for Thanksgiving - ha!
How about you? When are you going to start decorating for Christmas?
