Favorite Fall Decor

I love Fall! I'm into spreading the colors of fall throughout your space, but less is more, in my opinion. Just a little, in a tasteful way, is so much better than to have sensory overload. Here are some examples of items that I have changed to highlight the fall colors. I love this old tool caddy. It's so fun to decorate for any season and there are many ways to add color to the table or buffet. I sometimes fill it with apples or lemons or oranges. You just need a plan for the fruit after your event if you use real fruit!

Small baskets down the middle of your table with like items or small glass bowls would also be nice. During a dinner party, be sure to keep things on your table low enough for guests to see over and room enough for all your dinnerware, glasses and food.


"Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay." 1Peter4:8,9




Blessings,

Coleen

I found the tool caddy at a flea market/ antique sale in Michigan. It was in great condition all I had to do was wax it.
