Halloween Decorating

Halloween is upon us. I feel like this holiday kind of snuck up on me and I didn't have much time to decorate. I did end up doing a little something in the front hall though. Here are some more pictures.

Fall in the Dining Room

After my sister's wedding, we had a ton of leftover mini pumpkins and flower centerpieces. I took some of them home, did some rearranging, and here is what I came up with.
I love how fresh it looks, but still feels like fall.

Thanksgiving Mini Mason Jar Cheesecakes

This past summer, I made some mini mason jar cheese cakes for my sister's wedding shower. They were a big hit so I knew I would have to make them again. I used the same recipe, but switched up the toppings and served them for dessert at Thanksgiving dinner. The jars made it perfect to send the extras home with everyone.

Give Thanks

As I mentioned earlier, I found a new spot for my Give Thanks sign. Click here to see where I had it last fall. This year I put it on top of the bar cabinet in my dining room. I added some flowers, pumpkins, pine cones and burlap and now it looks like fall.

Book Pages Wreath

A few weeks ago, it was my Grandmother's birthday. I made this book pages wreath as a gift for her. I thought it would be a nice tribute to the fact that she is an avid reader and has a wonderful book collection in her home (which she is generous enough to lend out to anyone looking for a good read).
