Well good news! I survived the 10K and I actually LOVED it. Despite running through a zillion hills (it kinda felt more like running 6.2 miles on a stairclimber) and having a painful hip the entire time, it was seriously a blast. My husband and I did it together, so it was really special to have that time with him. And now I already want to do another one! Once this darn hip heals up that is. Anyway, today I thought it would be fun to share a few tips for how to decorate with real branches for fall. Chances are you have a couple beautiful trees near you that are changing colors, so why not be a weirdo like me a snip some branches?! Here are a few ways you can incorporate them into your fall decor:
1.In a Vase:
You can do this on a set of shelves, as the centerpiece on your dining table, coffee table, or buffet. Just add a little water to a vase and fill it up with a few branches. Most of the time I can get them to last 4 days or so in a vase like this. Easy and beautiful! (If you’re interested in that sign you can see a similar one here.)
2. On the Mantel
This is one of my favorite ways to use real branches during fall–just lay a few on the mantel and top them off with real pumpkins. This creates a stunning fall mantel that only takes a few minutes to put together. BOOM!
3. Mix with Real Flowers
If you want a colorful focal point for your dining table, try mixing fall foliage with real flowers. The combo is super pretty and works well for a fun fall centerpiece. Plus it will last a few days!
4. In a Basket or Tote
One of the prettiest ways to decorate with real branches for fall (or any time of year) is to simply put them in a woven basket or tote. I LOVE this look and it’s perfect for an entryway space. This would also be great on the front porch!
Well I hope that gives you a few ideas for how to decorate with real branches for fall. There really are SO many ways you can do it, plus it’s a great way to add a pop of color to any space. Annnnnnnd they’re free, which is the best part of all, right?! Right. Free is good. Really good.
Thanks so much for dropping by the blog today!! xoxo
