YOU DON’T BRING ME FLOWERS….

I love decorating for the seasons and for every holiday. I used to go all out with silk flowers, but my allergies got so bad that I had to give them all away. I have to be more creative now.

The first thing I do is choose three colors for my decorating. Last summer I chose blue, green and white. One fall I used Pumpkin, Cranberry and Cobalt Blue. Using a new candle as my inspiration, I chose shades of red, orange and yellow for my fall decorations this year.

Since I can’t use flowers, I used towels in the bathroom.

I added a pin and a hair clip to the towels for interest and to add yellow to the arrangement.

In the kitchen I used pumpkin salt and pepper shakers and a yellow candle in a clear holder.

The living room contained the candle, but I wanted a touch more color. I pulled out my ribbons that I save from packages. I sewed together a yellow ribbon over an orange ribbon over a red ribbon and tacked it to my boring black pillow.

I added three ribbons to my black pillow.

Sometimes, all it takes is a touch of color.
