~ The Fall Patio Table ~

Decorating the outside for fall is just as fun as doing the inside. Putting a vignette together for the table outside the shop is always a challenge due to the high winds we have occasionally along with Mother Nature and her changing mood swings.
 Last year I used a lantern for the centerpiece, this year
I decided to go with a grapevine for the centerpiece and build from there. This is a project any of you can do. Check your stash of goodies and play. Light, airy and whimsical words of the day to live by.
 Burly bittersweet fun and colorful. Miniature pumpkins for color. If you like add a bit of Spanish Moss, drape it off the sides for added interest.



Nothing to serious, nothing to complicated, fun, whimsical colorful pleasing to the eye. I hope you go through your stash of goodies, pull them together and make a table top centerpiece that's sure to wow your guests. Have you decorated your tables outside? If so I would love to hear what you've done.
I encourage everyone
to find what makes
you happy and useful
Embrace it and
make it work
for you. 
Hugs ~ Lynne ~

This is so cute! The grapevine is the star of the show! I'd decorate more outdoors but we put our patio furniture away for the winter. I have a problem with the squirrels eating my pumpkins so I usually just have mums...sort of boring!

Happy Weekend!

Beautiful outdoor fall decoration! I love the look of the grapevine, it's so fallish. Too bad I can't find them around here, but who knows, maybe in the florist shops, I'll have to check it out. Enjoy your weekend.

Lynne, this is so pretty! You've inspired me to decorate my back porch tables. I've never done it; but, this makes me want to now!

What a lovely tabletop for your patio table or even inside table. I love it! Let's see, hmmm...Perhaps I will dig out my grapevine wreath and use it. I did nearly the same last year on my front porch...
You put things together so beautifully, Lynne! You really do.

This is such a pretty centerpiece Lynn!! Love using the grapevine wreath like this and might have to copy your idea- that is if I ever get my fall decorating going! So behind- putting up nectarines as I type and getting ready for Ceekay from Thinkin of Home blog to come next week!
