Fall Table

ornamental grasses
I don't think you need to break the bank to create a beautiful and put together fall table.  
Here are a few of my tricks...

felt leafs (original use = arts + crafts, savvy use = placemats)
  • Purchase flowers from a grocery store.  You'll pay a fraction of what your florist will charge.  I picked up 2 mixed bouquets from Costco for 15.99 each.  With a little imagination and creativity you can design a centerpiece like a pro!
  • I used vases I already had, and added some ornamental grasses from my outdoor urns.  The grasses added a little pizazz to the simple mixed grocery store bouquet.
  • I picked up some gourds at Sobey's for 1.99 each.  This adds great colour and texture to any table.
  • Think outside of the box.  I bought oversized felt leaf shapes, used primarily for arts + crafts, but instead I used these as placemats.  
  • Gourds pictured center
  • With a tablecloth, table runner and napkins you'll be set to entertain!

If you have any questions or comments please let me know.
