I never really got my act together to decorate for fall this year (besides our front porch), but I thought I would squeak one more fall post in before it’s Christmas everything around here. Today, I’m sharing a quick Cabbage Fall Centerpiece that I threw together.
I like to keep these cute baskets on my dining table filled with herbs all summer long.
They are lined with plastic so I can water them with no issues. But alas, by fall I have either killed all the herbs or used them up in recipes, so the baskets are pretty sad come October. The Rosemary and Parsley were still going strong though, and I didn’t want to just dump them.
So, yesterday when I was at Trader Joe’s grabbing my groceries, I picked up a few of these cutie mini plants. They had them in a bunch of different pretty fall colors, but I snagged the purple and bright green ones (I wish I could tell you what type of flowers they are, but they didn’t have labels). They were $1.99 each and the perfect size to tuck in around the herbs. I also saved these pretty cabbages from my outdoor window boxes, because we have already had snow here in Michigan and they were starting to wilt in the cold.
I added a few artichokes too. That’s it, an easy fall centerpiece. I love the fact that it’s all planted rather than cut flowers, so it should last til Christmas!
I also wanted to show you the new slipcovered chairs I added to the end of the dining table. I searched high and low for the best price on these and really wanted a clean line version vs. one with more of a ruffle or bigger skirt on them, and I’m so happy with these. They are super comfy too!
I really feel like it finishes off the space and I love that I can add different throw pillows to add color for whatever season. I know you can’t really tell from these photos how they look, because spoiler alert my living room looks like a Christmas decor bomb went off. So. Much. Fake. Snow….
This is pretty much the only angle I could shoot that doesn’t look like the elves went on strike mid decorating at the North Pole.
It’s taking over our house.
Hopefully, I get the situation under control soon, and it will be all “Fa La La La La” next week on the blog :)
