This sweet little fall vignette was as easy as 1, 2, 3!
I am not quite ready to go full on with the oranges and red colors of fall. I wanted to experiment with bringing in some creams, turquoise, and pops of apple greens (or in this case "pear green".)
Step 1: Create the cake plate: 1 plate + 1 smaller dish = cake plate
I specifically was looking for turquoise accent pieces for my early fall decor. I like the height a cake plate can add to a vignette. I have been known to create my own cake plates with a plate, candlestick, and spray paint. (Click HERE to see tutorial.) I thought I would have to do that, but I found a turquoise plate and the small cassoulet dish at TJ Maxx for $3.00 each. All I had to do was turn the cassoulet dish over and center the plate on top. I chose not to use glue to hold the pieces together. I like having the flexibility of reusing the pieces in another way at another time. Gluing the two pieces together is an option.
Step 2: Add a large candle ring to the plate. I used a pips berry candle ring with green, cream, blue, and eggplant colored berries. I already had this candle ring and it goes great with my vision of early, fall, home decor colors.
Step 3: Add a pumpkin and a pair of pears!
I told you it was as easy as 1, 2, 3!
I am pleased with this sweet, little vignette. I think it looks great on my no sew table runner. (Click HERE for table runner tutorial.) I wanted to keep the look clean and uncluttered. The turquoise, "pear green", and creams take center stage. This was fun to do and I am excited that I have more pumpkins, polka dot ribbon, matching candle rings that I can use else where in my living room and family room to continue my color scheme and theme. What do you think?
