Time to start decorating for Autumn! Today I’ll be taking my Autumn decorations down from the attic and packing up the white slipcovers, blue & white and “beach house” decor for another year.

Here’s one of my favorite, easy, centerpiece ideas for this time of year. I alternate mini pumpkin votive holders with blue tealight holders on a runner down the middle of our dining room table. I love blue and orange together. The contrast is a fun, whimsical change from the usual fall palette.

I’ll be posting more autumn decorating ideas soon.

What is your favorite way to dress your home for the fall and winter months?

      LOVE the little gourds. I’m definitely a candle girl too. 3 candle chandeliers in my home, just got a new wall sconce from my friend Jill and bought some beaded candle holders for my fireplace mantle…and, of course, Yankee candle jars, votives and tea lights on every available surface πŸ™‚

      Oh, and for me it’s a burnt orange leaf themed table cloth and spicy scented candles. Going to be building up the decorations again…every few years I like going thrift store hunting for more seasonal/holiday decorations, keep my favorites and then donate the others back and hunt for new things. πŸ™‚

    Candles are wonderful things that can evoke many moods and enhance many settings. Perhaps you’re planning a romantic dinner for two, or a family Thanksgiving or Christmas gathering. Placing candles on the table adds to your decor and tells your guests that they’re special.-
