OUR LA-Z-BOY DESIGNERS
The witches and goblins will disappear at midnight on Halloween, and the pumpkins will usher in the first day of Fall!

The day after Halloween is the official First Day of the Fall Holiday Season!
I am sharing some beautiful examples of Fall arrangements using pumpkins and objects you already have in your home, and other ideas using branches, leaves, and berries pulled from your yard or from the side of the road! Happy Halloween and enjoy your Fall decorating!
Farmers markets and grocery stores still have plenty of pumpkins and colorful Indian Corn available!

Halloween has always been a favorite holiday at our house. As a child, I lived out of town on a farm so my mother would have a Halloween carnival in October and invite both adults and children where we bobbed for apples either in a tub of water or hanging from a string -no hands allowed! It was a great time.
When my children were small we had a doormat at the front door that screamed when you stepped on it! It was a big hit with kids and adults alike.
As the children grew up and went off to college, we would have a pumpkin carving contest in October to keep the fun alive!
CUTE IDEA: Pick any simple cookie cutter that you have in your baking set and use a mallet to help drive it through the shell of your pumpkin. When you're done, consider spray painting the entire thing one color if you want to make it a year-round piece.
Colors are like humans. Each one has a meaning. Each one conveys different feelings. Each one matters. How to mix people and how to mix colors is very important to understand because not all colors - or people - work well together!
When artists choose colors harmoniously, spectacular results follow. It's the same when designing a room!
Choosing contrasting colors with
one complimentary color
can be the way to go.

Primary colors are still on my mind! Happy, free, and bright!
I do love the primary colors.
However, using all three together can be a LITTLE TOO MUCH!

Earlier this week I wrote about the color RED and how this color means business, commands attention, and exudes excitement. However, incorporating red into your home decor is sometimes easier said than done.
Too much red isn’t always right for certain spaces. Too little red won't even make dent in your design.
Fortunately, pairing red with another color (or two!) can bridge the gap between subtle and statement. There are so any options that work with red! Here is one of my favorite color pairing to help tame this beautiful but commanding color!
Not too early to shop for holiday decor!
