Fall decorations

This is mostly a repost from September, but I wanted to share my pretty Fall decorations. Plus this may inspire me to find some of the items that have "walked off" since I put them out.

Last month, I found the cutest chocolate brown plate on clearance at Target. (it looks lighter due to the flash)

I went to the produce stand that day to find fresh vegetables for a dinner we were having. The produce stand was filled to the brim with gourds and pumpkins. I knew that I would find what I needed to fill that cute plate at Target there. I'm not crafty, but Kelli inspires me to be a bit more. So I dug around in the closet in the basement, and found plenty of fall items.

I created this plate, with 2 of the 4 gourds from the produce stand, and some flowers from an arrangement I received last year.

There were still plenty of flowers though, from a bouquet that Kaia had brought home from Grammy's and started to destroy.

So I added them to the old bouquet after chopping with Dana's cutters from the garage.

I even switched the magazines over to early fall mags, and the Garden Moment Getaways that I received from Kelli's giveaway.

There were still more things leftover, though. So why not one more decoration?

I hope you are all enjoying this Fall. This post is part of Show & Tell over at Kelli's. Check it out, you may find more great ideas!
