I’m winding up my fall decorating ideas this week and then I’ll be sharing with you my simple rustic Christmas crafts along with starting my Christmas decorating. I’ve really been into anything that’s simple and already on hand when it comes to decorating this year. When I opened my fall decorating tote I noticed I have a hodge podge of pumpkins. All different colors, shapes, textures, and materials. I felt none of them worked alone well so to make it seem like a planned collection I dumped them all into a wicker basket lined with faux fern branches.
It couldn’t have been simpler. That type of decorating is right up my alley. It took no thought but when it was done I rather liked it. I also added faux straw flowers to my galvanized sap bucket, and rounded up any throw pillows I had that contained the colors of my thrown together pumpkin basket.
Did you happen to notice a few of the items in the basket are actually real dumpling squash? I always know when it’s time to switch over to winter decor……when the fall decor starts looking sparse with gaps and holes in it. One by one the dumpling squash disapper and we have them for dinner.
I’m actually getting excited about decorating for winter and Christmas. Every year I have a different color themes for the tree and all the extra decor. This year I’m running ideas around in my head and think I may go with traditional Christmas colors. I haven’t used good old red or green in quite some time and it looks like it’s time I did.
