Fall Centerpieces and Bouquets

Though my Husband and I were married in the early Summer, I have always had a passion for fall. Cooler, drier temperatures and the gorgeous palette of the changing leaves in New England leave me breathless with wonder. There is no better season in my book. Recently I have seen a lot of centerpieces and bouquets for Fall occasions and I am just in love with the visuals. 

The use of gourds in these next few photo's are fantastic!!

And, these bouquets are gorgeous. Love the use of deep burgundy and the contrasting spicy oranges:

There are so many options for a gorgeous fall bouquet or centerpiece. I am just in love with the palette that we associate with Autumn. If you are looking for flowers, try local nursery....or even better for a better selection of flowers order online.

Another great thing to do in fall to get some color ideas is to visit a botanical garden. We've got a beautiful one in Maine called Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. It is fantastic....and they've got a whole section themed just for children. Here is a link to their site where they list what's blooming in each season!!

Fall Felt Board Craft

Oh, the fun of felt material!! You can do so many things with it. This is my latest fall decor attempt...and it is multipurpose....not only is it decoration, it is interactive. Love it!! Here's what I did:
With a little help from some heat-and-bond and an old dry-erase calendar:
I ironed that felt right onto it. I used some brown for dirt/grass and some blue for the sky. 
Give your dirt a little depth and add some gently rolling hills. Then, I started making the felt characters!! Munchkin was a wake and involved in the process, so of course this wasn't just a fall-themed was a DINOSAUR fall-themed craft. They find their way into a lot of our crafts. :-) We got pumpkins......and, a VOLCANO!!!!
Where would the Great Valley be without Littlefoot and Petrie?? Nowhere. That's right. 
That yellow swirling vortex (thanks hubby for naming it so *aptly*) is actually a round hay bale. You know you see it. Just not necessarily very well. 
(Kinda looks like one of sir pumpkins eyes is getting pulled into the not-a-vortex, but that's beside the point)
Witches are essential. 
A little tangerinish paint for the frame and there you have it!! The perfect interactive fall decoration.
