Fall decorating help

I'm not a decorator, I'm not particularly crazy about fall colors/decorations. I despise orange although I like pumpkins. So many blogs have really pretty pictures of their fall decor right now that I've been sucked in to trying some fall decorating. Not a lot, mind you, just a few things to add a touch of autumn here and there.

After seeing the pretty pumpkins at Eastern Market last week, Julianne and I stopped at Dollar Tree and noticed the cute little pumpkins above. I'm willing to spend a buck on a pumpkin, rather than the $$ the larger ones were in Detroit, so we picked up one in each color.

The basket came from Eastern Market.
I already had the candles and the mini-pumpkin-looking potpourri in the bag. These all smell wonderful.
I picked up the autumn mix candy this weekend. If we have time, we have some plans to use some of that in the kitchen. I'll show you when we're done if we manage to get around to it. In the meantime, it looks cute in the jar.

Here's where all of you come in. I need help.

What would you do with the above items? What would you group together, what would you keep separated? What can I do with that basket? Yes, I bought it with no idea where I would use it or what I would put in it. Help me, please?

I also wanted to mention that we are going away for a few days this week. We are leaving Tuesday morning and coming home Thursday sometime so I probably won't be back online before Friday. I'm trying to set up some things to post while I'm gone so feel free to stop by. I've got a recipe post coming on Tuesday but haven't gotten beyond that point in my planning.

  1. That's easy...put the little pumpkin potpourri in the basket, surround with the larger pumpkins, eat the candy corn and give the candles to your sister-in-law:>) Problem solved! Happy Anniversary!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
