Has the late summer heat stalled your fall decorating?
I’m coming clean with my admission of guilt here.
Heat can be so oppressive, can’t it?
Let’s not do that anymore.
I’m calling time, blowing the whistle, ending the pretense that leaves aren’t falling somewhere other than in my tablescapes.
Shall we begin thinking fall and ignoring the outside temps?
Find Patricia Neely-Dorsey here.
This arrangement inspired some indoor decorating to begin over the weekend.
Maybe it’ll help you, too.
You were right that I’d find lots of uses for the white chalk-painted urn.
And, the apple gourd I painted with chalk paint a few years back tops it all off.
I didn’t want to waste the centerpiece idea. My grandmother’s bisque punch bowl (you saw how it was repaired here) is something I try to transform for seasons in the dining room, so the raffia, seasonal leaves, and apple gourd went inside the bowl.
Do you think the apple gourd looks sort of like a pumpkin shape?
There’s more coming soon!
Are you ready for fall yet? Do you have time in your schedule to get a few things out for fall before Thursday? Maybe you already have?
