My Goodwill Fall Tablescape for under $10



Fall was in the air a few days ago... We had thunder, lightning, rain and cooler temps.... But, today it's back up into the mid-80's and low to mid 90's are in the forecast for the rest of the week.   This was definitely a very good summer, weather-wise,  up here in the Pacific Northwest and it's not over yet....
 
but I REALLY, REALLY want fall to come....


Over the weekend I visited a Goodwill store to check out their selection of fall décor.  I found PLENTY... and was able to put together this cute table scape for under $10!


I love it for now but have been thinking about swapping out the Apothecary jar for a candle that isn't so tall. 

I used my tray, an upcycled picture frame, which you can read about here and the no-sew burlap and muslin table runner that I recently shared here.
 
 
Here's the breakdown of what I spent:
 
Metallic (Pottery Barn) Pumpkin 1.99
"Frosted Pumpkin" .99
Green Pumpkin and all Filler Material
(pinecones & small pumpkins) 3.99
Large Pumpkin 1.99
Leaves (garland) .99
(I already had the Apothecary Jar)
 
 
I like to look at Goodwill and thrift shops first for seasonal décor, because I'm always guaranteed to find something that I'm looking for at a fraction of the retail price.
 
I change things around the house about as often as I change my shoes, so I'm sure it'll evolve in the next couple of months!
 
What do you think?
 
Have you started your Fall Decorating yet? 
 
 
Sharing the love at these AWESOME parties

  5. I just came across a tall glass jar while looking for something else in the attic. I can do something similar to your beautiful vignette. Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. Now that is worthy of the Nifty Thrifty Tuesday party! I like the apothecary jar, but I think your idea of a candle would also work well. Fall is in the air!
