I finally found some time mid-week to “un-Halloween” our house, and was sad at how blah my front room looked afterwards. Prior to Halloween, our Ikea Expedit cubby sat blank, nothing on top, and I was fine with that. But when it came time to decorate for Halloween, I suddenly realized I had a blank canvas there- a whole table top to decorate however I wanted! So I came up with something after reading the YoungHouseLove blog. (You can click here for MY Halloween decorating pictures).
But alas, all the Halloween decor boxed up, all I had left were a few random Autumn decorations, and no real “theme”. My Ikea Expedit was once again blank and empty and I couldn’t stand it.
So today I did some shopping! Went to Michael’s where they had 60-70% off almost everything Autum related. I picked up 3 brown and gold toned vases
a twine wrapped vase
a floral grouping and individual floral stems, 2 candle holders
a couple of weird little birds
some leaf garland
and unique little pumpkins
and put it all together like THIS:
Alas, I finally have some non-Halloween, Autumn decor that will carry us through Thanksgiving! I’m already excited to decorate for Christmas!
