Five Fab Fall Finds under $50- Decor Edition


Hi All! Happy hump day! So with warmer than normal temps here I have been slooooow to move into Fall mode.  Last week I wrote a bit about Fall tablescapes and outdoor ideas, but sometimes a little retail therapy goes a long way to get ya jump started…at least this is what I have heard.  Enter “Five Fab Fall Finds under $50” (say that 5 times fast!)  Here are some fun items to update your Fall decor, without busting the budget:

#1. This gold tone candle holder from H&M is $24.99! I am ordering it for my Thanksgiving table decor to pair with green and gold magnolia leaves:


#2. Fur+ velvet= soft and luxe! This 20″ pillow cover from Pottery Barn ($49.99) combines two classic Fall trends and will cozy up your space well into the New Year. Also comes in Ebony and Mocha (Cherry shown):


#3. Threshold Feather Wreath at Target, $24.99. I purchased this last week and hung it over a mirror in the living room.



#4. White and Gold Ceramic Vase from Save on Crafts, $11.99. This vase comes in a myriad of shapes and sizes, and while it definitely does not read exclusively Fall decor, you could add branches to the taller version, or top it with a moss ball for a more modern twist.


#5.  Thankful Trivot from Crate and Barrel, $19.95. It is in-store only (whyyyyyyy!), but for those of you fortunate enough to have a Crate and Barrel in your neighborhood, I thought this would look adorable propped up against a kitchen backsplash, or as a backdrop for some cute pumpkins.


And BONUS! because I could not decide, here is the coordinating Thankful platter also from Crate and Barrel, $34.99. P.S. These two beauties paired together would also make a nice gift for the upcoming Holidays!


Hope these ideas help to get your Fall creativity flowing!

Weekend Round-Up

Hi All! Happy looooong weekend! I had an amazing few days celebrating my birthday by taking in the local sights with hubby, and gathering with my family for a delish turkey dinner made by my Mom- Thanks Mom! While my parents watched the kiddos on Saturday, hubby and I went to the Beak & Skiff Orchard, where thankfully the weather broke long enough to enjoy lunch (and delicious hard cider) outside.


And then it was off to Patisserie in Skaneateles for caramelized onion and gorgonzola focaccia bread, among other treats!


Hubby booked us a relaxing afternoon at Mirbeau Spa, after which we headed to one of our favorite restaurants, Arad Evans Inn, for dinner.  We then had to hit Wegmans and get our shop on (I loathe grocery shopping but somehow doing it with hubby, and at Wegmans makes it easier).

Couldn't resist a pic in the the pumpkin patch @wegmans!

So in sum, we ate and drank our way through the #315!!
