  1. Lory, the elements that you added to the wreath are gorgeous! Loved seeing how you gave the wreath and garland touches of Fall!

    1. Thanks so much, Cindy! This was a fun one to work on, wasn’t it? 🙂 I thought your use of the wreath was genius!!

  2. LOVE the mix of plates – would never have thought about that!!!

    1. Thanks, Ann! Funny, because I didn’t initially think of it either. But as I was nosing around my cabinet looking for something to go with the salad plates, I knew I found just the thing when I saw the animal print. I often use animal print like a neutral… 😉

    1. Thanks so much, Norma! It’s actually a really pretty wreath, even without the flowers. Check back at Christmas because I’m sure I’ll do something else with it then… 😉

    I’ve really been enjoying seeing conifer greens mixed in with fall florals, even by wedding designers, and these look great. One trick I learned from a professional floral designer when using any wreaths made of faux winter greens is to just tie or twist two pieces of the existing greens around the stem of a pick to keep it in place if the wreath is going to be in a high traffic area such as a door. Quick and easy and no extra wire or glue needed so the picks can be removed when it’s time to refresh the wreath. Always enjoy your color combinations.

  6. Both the animal print dinner plate and pumpkin salad plate are just giving me a fit over here!!!!!!! Gorgeous! And I love how you paired them up! I think many people are afraid of mixing patterns like that, but I’m a HUGE fan!!! Wonderful tips on doubling down with those decorations. Smart idea, especially for people without a lot of time, energy, patience, storage space, etc.!!! Happy weekend!!!

    1. Thanks, Alycia! I think we always tend to see things the same way… 😉 I think of animal print as a neutral… lol!! Have a great weekend!

  7. Lory, you are always so original and classy. I love those salad plates but I get an error message when I try the link. Where are they from ?
