You know what's great about trying to do something on the cheap? It makes you notice the normal, every-day, all natural items that you can use (for free!) that typically someone could just walk right by. Drew and I did our three mile loop yesterday and I was so impressed with the amazing fall berries that have popped out and these little yellow flowers you see in this arrangement... hence, a walk on the exact same loop today to collect our findings...
It's so easy for me to get carried away and think that I need to decorate things to a hilt and think about all the fun fall items I see in the stores. I mean, I NEED that squirrel nutcracker from Pottery Barn, right? And my porch wouldn't be complete without seven pumpkins on it, right? Mmmm... no. So, I challenged myself to come up with a fall arrangement that didn't cost us a dime.
The yellow berries will eventually be bittersweet (well, I guess they would if I didn't pick them); I love the yellow against the walls in the kitchen (Driftwood Gray, a Martha Stewart color).
Here are the little details:
I just love simple white pumpkins.
I stole them for this tablescape from my simple centerpiece I made the other day, if you missed it click here.
Okay, I'm in love with this photo. Maybe it's the white background of the plate, maybe it's the vibrant yellow or maybe it's because the yellow wildflowers or so charming.
Lastly, here is a picture of the little guy before we polished off all the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies:
