Pumpkins in the Lantern and A Fall Centerpiece

Well, it's official, I have finally started my fall decorating. Since I'm at my daughter's house and she bought a few new pieces for her lantern, I might as put it together for her.

I think she leaves new things out in my sight so I will start the decorating. Oh well, she knows I love to create new looks even if it's at her house. 

She bought the  lantern and black tray at Nell Hill's last year and wanted something new to spruce it up. Another trip to Nell Hill's this week and she found just the right touches. A new pumpkin was added to the lantern. 

The fall leaves and berries were good with the arrangement.

Did you notice the pine wreath? She thought she could use it for fall then again for Christmas with different pieces.

The painting behind the lantern makes such a good backdrop with its warm tones. 

Thanks for stopping by. I plan to keep on with my fall decorating - Judy.
