C week! C is for Cornicopia

 There is something to say about decorating for Fall.
The warmth of Fall colors is so inviting. The muted reds, the pumpkin oranges, the warm yellows.
I love pulling out the cable knit throw blanket to snuggle under with a nice cup of honeyed herbal tea.
The overall implied coziness of Fall is what makes it so great.

Years ago Mom asked me to help her put together a Fall center piece for her dinning room table.
I picked out the supplies and made the arrangement, she footed the bill.

Fast forward a few years.
I now have the Cornucopia arrangement and the dinning room table.
What can say. Mom is a very giving and generous person.

I have had to add and take away from the arrangement, but to this day it remains a favorite piece of mine. It even gets lovingly tucked away in the ceder chest in the interim, while other seasonal decor is either in plastic bins in the garage or shoved in garbage bags up in the attic.

Also this year I added a corduroy table clothe, & rattan runner for texture.

I have seen these candles on the bloggishere a lot lately and thought I'd give it a go.

You might be able to burn the candle for a few hours, but I am not that careful, so these will stay just the way you see them.

Here's a little easy peasey tutorial. Hope this helps!
