Ahead of the Big Party Post (!) tomorrow, I want to share with you the simple fashion in which I decorated for the event. My go-to shopping destination for any party (or every day) is the outdoors. The side of the road, the woods, the garden, the pasture. Nature is the cheapest–and most beautiful–decorator you can find.
I had pitchers and old bottles everywhere inside and outside filled with fall wildflowers.
I was particularly taken with how the wildflowers looked in this old ceramic coffee pot.
Outside, we set up straw bales on either side of the main steps up to the porch.
Along with the straw bales were pots of mums, pumpkins, and fodder shocks.
The only real cost here were the mums. (An annual party-time gift from 52.)
Inside, an antique quilt served beautifully as a table covering.
And that was the sum total of my decorating–mostly free, natural, and vintage. There’s no need to spend a lot of money to put on a pretty party!
