Challenge Time at Decorate to Celebrate Design Team - Fall Part 1


     It just doesn't seem possible that the summer is winding down already.  But with back to school ads and Halloween candy in the supermarket, it must be true!  We have had great weather this summer in the Northeast, and our garden is bursting with herbs and vegetables.  I have decided to set up a little stand for my neighbors to come help themselves to our bounty and was also planning a dinner for some friends.

     I still am enamored of the rustic, chalkboard approach to decor so with items found in my local dollar store, I created items for a Fall table that I think are so easy and add a nice touch to a Fall party.  Even though the kids are moaning about Back To School, I'm must admit to a little excitement to feel the cool breeze of the next couple of months!


    Chalkboard items are still very popular in the home decor and crafting areas.  You can find supplies like these at any craft retailer, dollar store or another of my favorite resources Oriental Trading Company

    I love the new chalkboard markers out there as they create clean lettering, but old school chalk works just as well.

    Using the items as placecards is a fast and easy way to Fall up your table.  There are so many ways you can incorporate these ideas so head out to your local store and have fun crafting. I found little hay bales in the party store and they were great for adding some height and texture.
