Hello friends and happy Friday!

 It seems that the mother nature is going to bring an early taste of fall to Atlanta this weekend with temps in the 70’s.  Perfect timing since I just pulled together this fall tablescape and I’m beyond ready for the season to be here.

This year I decided to create a table featuring natural hues with accents of gold.  I love how it turned out and hope you do to.

 Enjoy the photos and cheers to the season!

Hello September!

I can’t believe how fast the last 30 days have flown by.  If there’s one thing to hate about getting older, it’s the fact that time seems to go by at a quicker pace while our daily routines seem to get  busier and busier.

 As summer ends and fall blooms I hope each of you will take some time to relax and enjoy the beauty of it all. I sure plan on doing that.

I introduced the idea of my Inspiration Notebook last month and I’m really enjoying the process of jotting down the things that inspire me and collecting pieces that represent that inspiration.Today I’m bring you the September installment in my notebook.   It gives you a glimpse at how I plan to enjoy the month and a few new adventures I have planned for the blog and on Instagram.  Enjoy and be inspired!

DIY Nut Bowls by ConfettiStyle-4

Sometimes I think my creativity is a curse because I rarely can look at an item and think it’s perfect the way it is.  More times than not I look at something and imagine how I could make it better, cuter or more decorative.

Take these small wood bowls I saw at HomeGoods.  I thought about all the different food items that could be served in these bowls and even thought about how cute they’d be on a vanity holding jewelry.  They were adorable just like they were  but I imagined them being even cuter.

Every season I do a little refresh of the bed linens on our bed.  I like to change things up a bit to  reflect the colors of the season and how I’m feeling.

With the onset of fall it was time for the pink and red pillows to move out and rich, warm colors to move in.

Here in Atlanta, I think our string of hot days is over and cooler  fall weather is here to stay.  This has prompted me to get  busy  and complete my summer to fall closet transition.

Fall3

Every year as I begin to remove the summer items from my closet, I challenge myself to think about ways I might we able to wear each piece of clothing into the new season so I can maximize my investment. There are some pieces of clothing where the fabric, pattern or color just won’t work in cooler weather but for others there is hope.

White pumpkins

I was once a purist when it came to pumpkins and would only decorate with orange ones.  Over the last few years I’ve fallen in love with whites and green pumpkins and the sophisticated feel they can add to your decor.

I know like most of America you are probably busy decorating with pumpkins inside your home.

 You might be creating a beautiful centerpiece for your table

Or you might be accessorizing your mantel with white pumpkins.
