Want a quick way to update your holiday decor? Take Fall oranges, yellows, and browns, and turn them around – into pastels! I was inspired by ghost pumpkins, with their bluey white tinge and greyish green boo pumpkins.
I was first inspired when spying these beauties at whole foods market. I wanted to buy all the pumpkins their, but that would have been quite expensive. I picked through, picked the best mini whites and then head straight for the dollar store.
They didn’t disappoint. I bought various sizes of styrofoam pumpkins, and a couple of packages of acorns and pine cones in variety sizes. Michaels craft store next for a tightly wound, very thin vined grapevine wreath and some moss.
Everything else I had in my stash at home…craft paint: white, cream, soft green, dark turquoise blue- to paint pumpkins, pinecones, acorns; white glue and gold glitter (for acorn tops); hurricane style glass vases and candles; pastel papers to cut out leaves. Add layered table runners candles, fairy lights, even a few pastel silk flower blossoms scattered in to complete your look. I also cute out a wood veneer squirrel with my Cricut Maker for a little whimsy.
You could create this tablescape not only for Thanksgiving, it’s perfect for general fall decorating, or even a Woodland Tea Party.
I love looking at all the little details – all the pieces! of creating a new take on classics. I hope you feel inspired to shake things up a little as well.
And you know, if you can’t make it happen this year, Pin It! and your ready to take it on next year!
thanks so much for stopping by!
