Fall Centerpiece

Getting our Thanksgiving on here at the Peahen Pad. My very cool neighbor Kerry called me up out of the blue to do an evening out shopping at Kohls. I've only been to Kohl's once with my sister for clothes, but didn't realize they had such a big home decor section. Kerry was in the market for a birthday gift and some Christmas gifts for her children. All of the toys were 50% off, plus another 20%, plus she had a 30% off coupon. Hmmm, maybe I could get in on this action I thought.  She was kind enough to let me pay her with a check.

So here's what I ended up with.  MVP has been asking Santa for a Fire Truck ever since we got a toy catalog in the mail.  So when I spotted a Tonka firetruck for about $10 after all the discounts I couldn't help it.  It was calling his name.

After the toy shopping we looked at the Halloween clearance items, but nothing really looked interesting. HOWEVER, all of the Fall stuff was lumped in with this sale stuff and I thought I could use some fall decorating items.

I found this beautiful purple mum flower pot that I placed in the center of my table on a white rectangular dish.  Around the flower pot I placed little pumpkin scented candles (also from Kohls) on top of some white stones.

I just love the shot of purple with the gray walls and gray dining room chairs.

I never was a fan of pumpkin pie, but I sure do like the smell! This pumpkin scented candle from Chesapeake Bay only set me back a few dollars and it's going to make the house smell wonderful for Thanksgiving don't you think? I placed it on a square dish with yellow maple leaves underneath and a few acorns around it.

Next week I'll share the whole tablescape for you when we set our table for Thanksgiving. How are you decorating for your big feast?

And now I leave you with a beautiful view out my front window.
