Today I am enjoying some post-Labor Day time at Sea Glass Cottage, drinking a very tall, cool glass of iced tea because I tell you, it is hot and humid! It is gloriously beautiful but autumn is not even a whisper in the air. So, because I brought a bag full of pumpkins and floral decor, I'm ready to at least "play" at getting ready for fall.....a coastal fall.
I like to keep things very simple, inexpensive, and reuse as much decor as possible. It's fun to stretch my creative muscles and try to repurpose and recreate something unique with each seasonal arrangement.
I found this cute metal and rope tray at Pier 1 on sale last week and knew I wanted to use it for my patio table arrangement.
Next, I pulled out "filler" items left over from other projects....moss, fall items such as cones, wood chips, etc..., and floral arranging items. I don't use hot glue on any of my projects because I pull them apart and rearrange/reuse often to save money.
I had no plan, per se, -- I just put everything on the table and began playing and arranging things until I liked the end result!
I love the colors of sea glass, the blues and creams and whites, so I chose these lovely blue-grey and cream colored pumpkins (on sale, of course!) at Michael's Craft store.
I also spotted these cute floral pots in slate grey with pods and blue-grey berries with a fuzzy texture.
Here's my quick and easy project after simply stacking things at different levels and filling in the gaps with "filler."
That's all it took -- and now it's ready for us to enjoy on the patio table on the balcony. And just in case it's evening and I'd like a little candlelight, I pulled out one of the floral pots and added a candle and elevated it on a clear glass candlestick.
Hope you are enjoying a touch of fall in your area, or at least dreaming of fall and decorating...and thanks so much for visiting Sea Glass Cottage today!
Next time, I am sprucing up my kitchen and bringing in a touch of fall. Please come back to see what I'm "cooking up" for coastal kitchen decor and trust me, it is simple!
