We’re ready for fall decorating — the more pumpkins, pinecones and early autumn florals the better. Laura Trevey at Bright, Bold and Beautiful shares our sentiment. She recently posted some great tips on creating autumn vignettes, and is contributing some of her tips and ideas to the blog today.
Why did you choose these lanterns and tray?
“I love using trays to protect my table tops and this gorgeous Pottery Barn chevron tray is also a handsome statement piece. When I am creating vignettes, I group objects together with different heights. My Pottery Barn lanterns were the perfect choice for height and color.”
What fall foliage is your favorite for fall decorating?
“I hardly ever purchase foliage for centerpiece arrangements and festive vignettes. I can usually find everything I need right in my backyard. For early fall, I just love these pastel rose colored sedum blooms. As we head into Winter, I incorporate more magnolia leaves, holly leaves and berries, and I love red nandina berries, too.”
What advice could you offer for creating pretty, easy vignettes for fall?
“Use what you have. Have fun experimenting with different shaped objects. If you need more height, place one grouping on top of a stack of pretty coffee table books or magazines.”
