Fall Foraging

We are big fans of seasonal decorating, and especially of using elements from nature. It's a great way to add atmosphere to your home, especially around the holidays, without spending a lot of money.

Branches create a warm ambience in any room- we love their sculptural quality and their dramatic height and use them everywhere: 



 Sunflowers, succulents, dried artichokes and pods cozy up a mantle...

Dried hydrangea, eucalyptus, dried chili peppers, pine cones and cat o'nine tails add warmth to a hutch.                                      

  Kale leaves are as beautiful as flowers on the table:                                                            

And for "high" drama, draping a dining room chandelier with a branch and some ribbon creates a sensational centerpiece: 

Your imagination is the limit of what you can create....what's in YOUR yard?
