Creating a fall tablescape is easy and inexpensive if you use what you already have on hand.
Join me for 7 days of tips on how to bring it all together.
NOTE: These 7 tips were published a couple of years ago, but if you're looking for ideas, you'll see these again here on LMDH, three a day and one on Thanksgiving morning to help you decorate this year too.
Drag out all your decor you have stored around the house - stick it all in a pile on your kitchen table and play around with it!
Serving Bowl, Coffee Beans & a Candle
Here I put together a plain serving bowl that is a pedestal dish and filled it with coffee beans and set a candle in the middle of it. Easy peasey, right?
I got the glass dish years ago at a garage sale for $.25, and the candle at the day after Christmas sale at Michaels for $2.00. Coffee beans were a special blend at Walmart clearanced for $3.00/bag.
Now, I suggest you don't burn the candle, since I've heard that the coffee beans are very flammable (That's my disclaimer!). I put it in a candle holder before setting it into the beans just in case I want to light it.
I don't know about you, but I get a little tired of the typical candle on a candlestick look.
