September 22, 2017, posted by Gina – Hello Friends! I have missed posting but life sometimes keeps me so busy I can’t seem to find the time to share everything I would like to with you. When I looked back on the past couple of weeks, it is clear that I have all things Fall on my mind. Let’s take a look at some of the fun stuff I have found.
| CANDY CORN |
Candy corn is seriously a problem for me. I LOVE it. I know, I know, it is nothing but sugar and SO bad for you. Why does something so bad taste so good? Though it’s very tempting for me, I have resisted so far and hope I can continue to be strong and keep walking pasththese kinds of displays. Stay tuned and pray for me!
| FALL DECOR: MUMS: PUMPKINS AND WREATHS |
I have been busy decorating my house for Fall and want to show you a few things that I have done. To me, beyond pumpkins, nothing ushers in fall better than a pretty mum. I put together a few pumpkins with some cotton balls and love how it came together. The brick on my house has pink tones and so cool tones look better with my house. I put these wreaths together and I love the neutral, natural look of them.
Across the Pond in France, Michelle has been decorating for Fall as well, though she tells me it’s just not really done there. So, it’s not as easy for her to find Fall-ish decor. She did find a few Jack-Be-Little’s and some cotton and put together a simple table decoration. Chestnut trees are very common there and you’re more likely to find chestnuts on the ground than acorns. She scattered a few on a tray around some pumpkins and put them on her entrance table. Et Voilà!
PS – About that table runner – It’s from Pier I and I sent it to her right after she moved to France. She puts it out every Fall.
| SUGAR COOKIES |
Just look at these adorable sugar cookies from The Painted Cookie. You can order these online or just about ANY design you would like. Angie, is the owner and is super nice to work with and she is very talented. The best part? The cookies taste amazing. Go ahead and order a dozen yourself.
| PUNCHY |
This berry punch was the perfect addition to champagne at a recent luncheon at my house. Not only was it very pretty, but the taste is fabulous. Give this a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
| SHAKE IT UP |
Do you ever find yourself STARVING at 3 or 4 in the afternoon? That is what happened to me the other day. I knew I had to do something to avoid snacking, so I headed to Super Shakes and bought one of their famous Peanut Butter Cup shakes. It knocked my hunger out and kept me from eating something I should not. If you have not visited Super Shakes, give it a try. The shakes are delicious, full of protein and low calorie.
What about you? Have you been decorating for Fall? Are you as passionate about these kinds of seasonal decorations as we are? Let us know!
Enjoyed this post Gina and makes me want to go fall decorate today!! How I wish we could find chestnuts on the ground here too…. I love them!
Michelle might just have to send us some of them!
I’d be happy to – remind me next time I come home!
