Fall Foyer Decor

Fall foyer decor this year is a bit of a departure

of what I have done in the past.

Lately, I have been drawn to all of the shades of purple . . . lavender.

There were some beautiful deep purple stock flowers at Trader Joe’s.

I began decorating the my antique French Buffet in the foyer by placing

the stock flowers in the blue and white ginger jars.

I added some stems of wheat for texture and to add more of a “fall look”.

Repurposing Candle Holders Into Pedestals

I needed  something to place my blue and white ginger jars on to gain more height.

I only had one small pedestal  that I use to prop things on, but needed two.

I came across a second set of Pottery Barn candleholders that were put away

on my staging shelves in the attic. I then got the epiphany, the light bulb moment.

From the soft blues of sea glass, to the awesome color of Carolina Blue,

to the vibrant hues of navy and the Williamsburg blue that many of us loved years ago.
