Pumpkins and Pinecones and Ragweed OH MY!

Fall is hands down my favorite time of year. What better way to celebrate fall than to spruce up the apartment with some fall decor.

Here are some of my nature inspired creations:

Bundle of Fall Foliage

I signed up for a rewards card at Anthropologie and they packed it up in this cute little sack. Of course I asked for one more, filled it up with couscous to weigh it down (I recently discovered that I really don’t like couscous so now I am trying to get rid of it any way I can), and inserted the ‘fall foliage’ (which I later discovered was ragweed…whoops).

Fall Basket Centerpiece

For my centerpiece I emptied out my fruit basket and filled it with some pinecones, acorn squash and baby pumpkins.

Creepy Branch

This branch was a great find! When I found it I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with it. But, after I dropped it in this bubble vase, I realized nothing else needed to be done. This was one spooky branch all on its own!

Ragweed Close-up

Despite figuring out this is ragweed, I thought this was a pretty picture…

Happy Fall Everyone!
