The little pumpkins I bought last year at Target AFTER Halloween so I think I paid a whoppin' $3 for all 6 of them. The wreath was a splurge from Target about 6 years ago when I first moved into my house with my bff, Doni; we don't really have a door to hang it on so I used ornament hangers to attach it to the metal hanging. The garlands I got from JoAnn's for 40% off - score! The leaf frame is a little thing I made in March after being inspired by one of my favorite blogs :) It is a regular decorating piece on my mantle, no matter the season.
There's the whole fireplace - including one of my favorite parts: the pumpkin basket with my house plant. I bought the basket at Michaels about 2 years ago for a ridiculous price of like $5 (they have sales ALL the time on their baskets). Last year I went back to Michaels and bought a ton of other baskets just like this to use in our fall wedding (10-10-09).
I bought the plant at Home Depot and it was my biggest splurge at $9.
and a few little touches here and there:
All this with my newly made reversible table runner and I'm one happy gal!
What about you - are you ready for fall???
