Fall Decorating!

So this week I've been in a kind of creative mood. I really wanted to decorate the house for fall, so I've gone for a couple walks and collected things to use. There are still some other things that I want to do, but I thought I would show you what I've done and see what you think!

I wanted to do a nice center piece for the table, and since we usually eat in the living room I decided to go big. ;-)

It's all made out of grasses that I've cut, a couple of grape vine branches and some red berries that I found.

I haven't decided yet how much I like it, and I was wondering what you all would think.

Here is my first attempt at making a grapevine wreath.

Here it is after some decorating. I'm thinking it's too thin and needs some more grapevine.

Here is part of the mess I made in my kitchen. :-/ You can't tell here but there were grass seeds EVERYWHERE!

This is a centerpiece I made a few days ago. I liked it because it had lots of color, but it was a little bit too wild or something. It would still be there except the leaves all curled up and started to look bad. Does anybody know how to preserve leaves on the branch?
I am in the process of drying more leaves to string up on the curtains in our living room and scatter in a couple other places. When that's done I'll show you how it came out. I hope you are all having a very blessed week!

Looks fun! Have you ever been in OH for fall?

Thanks Marci! :-) Well Rachel, I was here for part of last October but I don't remember seeing nearly as much fall color and I know it was warmer. This fall seems much nicer! :-)

Love the centerpiece Britt! :) I think the wreath needs a little more umph too, but it's looking good! You are so creative, and I wish you lived near me so you could help me decorate!
