Wreaths can be used in so many different ways to decorate your home and are very easy to make. Here are three options, in three different sizes, using three different bases. Which one are you going to create this Thanksgiving? Maybe you’ll do them all!
Grapevine Chair Wreath
Here’s an unexpected touch for your Thanksgiving table (or [...]
Halloween is a great opportunity to have some creative fun!
Here’s a quick centerpiece idea for your Halloween festivities…
I love the purple, lime green, orange and black combination for the holiday, so when I saw Halloween M&M’s in the store, I immediately bought a few bags. Just another reason to buy candy! I developed a nested [...]
Here’s a “spider tree” that is very simple to make and will look great in a picture window, on a table in the foyer or as a centerpiece for a Halloween party. I started with a store bought tree made from papier-mâché and pipe cleaners. Then I just glued black feathers, green millet and green [...]
This original papier-mâché pumpkin from the 1950’s is my favorite Halloween decoration. My mother-in-law gave it to me a few years ago. She finds the best stuff and knows my style to a tee!
With a few cuttings from your fall garden – here I used dahlias and asclepias – this old pumpkin becomes the happiest [...]
You can carve more than just a happy faced Jack-o-Lantern into your pumpkins. Why not use these ubiquitous fall orange squash to spell out a special message? I set this vignette up to congratulate my niece and her then fiancé on their engagement.

Sweet Treat Indeed
From now until the end of the year is a crafters dream. From Halloween through Thanksgiving and right into the holiday season, there are more reasons to decorate and create than any other time of the year. So let the creativity begin!
This ubiquitous Halloween candy was the inspiration for this floral centerpiece. It is [...]
While many of us associate Thanksgiving with crisp cold air, berried branches, turning foliage, and chrysanthemums, not everyone has to go over the river and through the woods to get to grandmother’s house. Some just take a barefoot stroll along the beach, perhaps collecting a few shells along the way. If I were spending the [...]
The personal and the décor flowers should complement each other. I suggest having 3 different centerpieces in varying heights instead of having the same centerpiece on every table. It creates a much better rhythm and flow in the room. Various size tables are also nice if your venue can accommodate it. Here are three options [...]
As I’ve said many times that having flowers in your home or office is just plain good for you. It’s such a simple thing to do and yet makes such a difference. Take advantage of the different floral varieties that are available each season. Dahlias will only be around for a little bit longer, so [...]
Thanksgiving is only a few days away and if you’re still looking for a centerpiece to make your table an elegant display of the season try using filberts and mums.
I prefer to use multiple smaller floral accents as opposed to one large centerpiece. Using smaller centerpieces will allow you to easily move the arrangements around [...]
