Fall Decor

Sometimes we branch out just a LITTLE from parties and events, and just talk about decor.  Today is one of those days!  It’s time to start thinking about your fall decor (just a few more days until it is officially no longer summer!)  I have some fall-ish DIY and inspiration for you!

From Thrifty Decor Chick, a very simple (and lovely) DIY fall wreath tutorial.

 

How about Duck Tape Pumpkins?  From Love and Sugar Kisses, comes a VERY unique way to decorate your real (or not) pumpkins this year.  You’ll be amazed at all the designs duck tape is now available in:

How will YOU be decorating for fall?  We’d love to hear about it!

Tuesday Trends – Ruffles are everywhere!

I’m not sure what the exact scientific criteria is for a “trend”, but I figure if I’m seeing something a LOT as I travel around the internet, then it’s possibly the start of a trend.

If I start to see that same something ALSO in stores and out in “real life”, then it’s most certainly a trend. (Right?)

So, on Tuesdays I plan to write about Trends.  And Tips.  And Tutorials.  Maybe even a few Tricks.  (You probably noticed the repetition of the letter T in those titles.  It’s me trying to be clever).

Today’s Tuesday topic will be Tuesday Trends – Ruffles!

I am seeing ruffles everywhere lately.  How about you?  I’ve seen ruffles on purses and ruffles on wedding dresses and ruffles in home decor.

 

Ruffles on scarves and ruffles on pillows.

Lots… and lots… and lots of ruffles!

Yesterday, I found a great tutorial (there is one of those “t” words again!) on how to make your own ruffle chair garland.  If you are planning a party, you might just want to check this out.  These chair garlands would be perfect at a lovely tea or a birthday party for Aunt Jane… and even a wedding reception.

You can click HERE for the Ruffle Garland tutorial.
