Neutral Fall Tree

I had some "light problems" on the fall tree that I shared earlier,  don't you just hate it when that happens.

    I decided it would be easier to take all the existing decor off and start new.     Well,  it didn't really turn out to be easier because I decided to change the fall theme of the tree while it was bare!

Foxy Fall Tablescape


I had fun creating a tablescape with colors and items that I don't normally use.

  When I saw these cute foxes at HL in the 90% of isle last year,   even though they were so cheap,   could they fit in with my style of decorating?       I love a good challenge,  so let's see how it worked out!

Fall to Halloween Tablescape
