Simply Gourd-geous!

My dining room table was feeling a little blah. I had added a couple wee little pumpkins that I picked up at Wal-Mart for 50 cents each to make it a little more fall festivey. But it needed some more oomph. So I did some some shopping around the house for various candles and accessories.

Here's what it looks like now:

Awww that's better. Much more cozy. I grabbed a mismatch of candles from around the house. I used the two white goblets I bought at Goodwill for $1 each to hold some various leaves and fall decor accessories I already had. I pulled some silk flowers off of the stems and arranged them around the lantern. I also stuck in a couple cute little gourds that my mom gave me.

It feels much warmer and more fall like.

I had a whole bag of the mini gourds so I stuck some in the bottom of this glass bowl that I had leftover from our wedding centerpieces. I placed a candle in the middle and voila, more easy fall decor.

  1. Great job! I love the goblets and the bowl with the gourds.

  2. Candles always make an area more warm & cozy. Great centerpiece.

  3. A beautiful transformation! Everything looks so pretty-where would we be without candles!
    Best wishes, NM.

  4. Beautiful! It really is much more cozy and warm. I like the table runner, too. Very nice!


  5. Lovely! I really like the gourds in the bubble bowl. I might steal that idea!

  6. Simply Stunning! I love, love, love it. Oh, and the lantern is awsome too (can it come play at my house?)
