A Little Fall Decorating

Because I've had so much going on this year, I'm not going to have an opportunity to get the house all dolled up for Halloween. In fact I'm not even sure there will be much seasonal decoration.

That being said, I did manage to create a little fall candle garden for my coffee table. I seem to have fallen in love with birch this year especially birch candles. This all seemed to happen when I fell in love with this Pottery Barn inspiration picture.

Here's the problem though, I can't afford Pottery Barn prices and so begin my search for affordable Birch Candles when I came across actual birch candles from World Market.

I actually like the World Market Candles better than the Pottery Barn ones because they use actual birch bark and are not just painted to simulate birch.

So here is my rendition of the Pottery Barn look.

In addition to the candles, I also picked up the large hurricane from World Market. The tray is from IKEA and the gold acorns came from Pier 1. I did purchase one thing from Pottery Barn and that would be the pine cone vase filler. I already had the two smaller hurricanes that contain the tapers and they came from Dollar Tree.

Here's a view of the candle garden with burlap underneath the tray. To me, it just screams fall.

What a year

Wow, it's been almost an entire year since my last post to Random Home Endeavors. It's not that I've not wanted to post on my most recent blog. It's just that this has been a really crazy year especially when it comes to home projects. While I've accomplished some of the house goals I set out to get done this summer, there were a few missteps along the way, starting with me getting scammed.

In the coming days, weeks, and months, I'm  hoping to return to all my blogs and get back to blogging.

Until then, you'll just have to wait a few more days.
