Leaves, pumpkins and a wooden duck tray

It has been awhile since I have gotten crafty, so I was happy to say yes when asked if I could do the decorations for my church's Women's Ministry, Oasis', Fall kick off meeting last week. It's fun to get my creative juices flowin' every once in a while, and Fall decorations are the prettiest and easiest I think! Take some Fall colored leaves, some candles and throw in some pumpkins and funky gourds and you're done! I went for simple. Life has been pretty busy lately, and only getting busier, so I didn't want to overwhelm myself. Here is what I came up with!

Our theme for this year...

The mini pumpkins had votive candles in them. They turned out so cute, and were pretty once the sun went down.

I'm kind of obsessed with making these paper garlands.

I LOVE how that chalkboard tray came out. If I had thought ahead I would have taken a before picture. It was a light wood tray with a duck painted on it that I got at a garage sale this summer for 50 cents. If you look close you can still see the outline of the duck, but whatevs.

My mom let me borrow some of her mum plants, aaaaand I left them in my garage. They would have been the perfect pop of color here by the fire.

Pretty sister.
