Thursday

I always say.....

11.21.13- 
-A philosophy I shared when I spoke earlier this month on Creating a Beautiful Decorated Life
One of my favorite ways to decorate our home for any kind of occasion or celebration is to set something up on a cake stand.  They aren't just for cakes my friends! 
{Although.. whenever a cake is baked in our house, it is served on a cake stand. Looks so much prettier that way} 

Here is an example of what I mean.  
I just can't {never have been able to} decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving.  Part of the reason why is my love for pumpkins.  I simply adore them!  I want to give them every little bit of glory they deserve.  Here is a display I have up inside our home right now. 


 Don't forget to show them off in a unique way outside too. Here they are all served up so pretty {on our little porch} set up on cake stands & placed in a bucket. 
-A snowy, dreary day at my house-
So much cuter than just plopped onto the cold cement.  I think they add a certain sophisticated flair as we anticipate Thanksgiving next week.   They seem to say that something special is about to happen & be celebrated.  


-I want to hear from you!!-
Do you still have pumpkins out at your house?  Or have you already started to deck the halls? 


Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by.

I still have 2 pumpkins! One of those beautiful grayish squatty varieties and one regular orange but it's some variety with a really thick stem. I love them both and purposely bought them so I could keep and display them through November!

And I couldn't agree more that everything looks better on a pedestal. It's all about the presentation! :)

Yes, it is Heidi. So glad you get the concept. Love seeing all your creations on IG, you are so talented. Wish I lived closer to you too.

I'm with you- I can't decorate for Christmas until Thanksgiving. I still have pumpkins all over the place. I don't often decorate with orange so I extend the pumpkin season as long as possible. I totally agree about the pedestal. Everything looks better like that!!!

I couldn't agree more. Love your little clip art and I LOVE your pumpkins on cake stands on your porch!! I noticed them when I came up to the hive. We definitely still have pumpkins everywhere at our house. I too can't do Christmas till after Thanksgiving.:)
