Have you seen the two and three tiered trays that seem to be the “IN” thing in holiday décor? I have salivated over all those I see on PINTEREST for awhile, so not too long ago HOBBY LOBBY (love that place!) had theirs on 50% off so I figured that was my SIGN…true, right???
I had a difficult time deciding between painted metal, galvanized metal, or wood but finally went with a white metal one since so much of my kitchen is white. I’d really like to have the galvanized or wooden one for FALL holidays, but the white one will look really good with all my gingerbread items for CHRISTMAS. Maybe HL will have another sale and I will grab another one😊
These are all from Amazon:
So, what do you think of my first time diving into TRAY DECORATING? I’m sort of proud of it; it actually turned out better than I thought since I am so NOT good at decorating. The chubby little scarecrow and the squirrel came from Hobby Lobby this year and the “blessed” sign came from $TREE (altered by me), but everything else I already had. I love the FALL pillow with the LITTLE RED TRUCK. It came from Dollar General last year. They had some other cute one this year, too.
I also pulled out my fall plates and placemats. The placemats were a gift from my sweet neighbor when she was downsizing to move. They also came from $TREE but are super quality and well made. And…they are perfect for a FALL table. (Thanks, Lois:) I bought the plates just a few years ago from Wal Mart but I doubt they are still available. They are also perfect for fall…a cream color with just a tad of brown around the edges. (You know what a “tad” is, right? We southerners sometimes forget we have our own vocabulary, so I’m never sure who understands what I’m talking about!!!)
I love this pumpkin soup tureen…but it’s never seen a single drop of soup! I just thought it was beautiful for decoration and bought it a few years ago at TJMaxx.
Ilove to decorate my porch for the seasons. Here is my ivy “tree”. It will look better when I have some real pumpkins to sit beside it.
And here is my rocking chair with a cute FALL pillow (from Wal Mart last year) and a cute scarecrow from Hobby Lobby.
I just couldn’t resist the gingham check and well, the wine one was just too cute not to get…and it was the last one they had😊
Is it just me, or does it bother anybody else that you walk down an aisle in a store these days and you see FALL, HALLOWEEN, AND CHRISTMAS decorations altogether????????????? Doesn’t each holiday deserve its own special time in the spotlight??
I am sooooooooooooooo looking forward to when it is really FALL! I can barely wait for the cooler weather and my first....
I can taste it now (sort of)! Do you like PUMPKIN SPICE??? Some do, some don’t, but I’m one who DO!!
