I will confess this past spring and summer, I did not do much with my house. Luckily my house is pretty and does not need a lot. I had no themes, color palettes, etc, I was too lost in Wren. But now I am coming out of my fog and getting my nest in order. Lots of deep cleaning going on (but I still have sooo much more to do, it is scary. I am slob incase you do not know that about me) and autumn decorating. The only reason I pick a theme or colors when I decorate, is it helps me focus on what I already have. Maybe see something in a new light. This falls color theme is black, white, brown and a tiny touch of red here and there. Very neutral and a bit French feeling.
In keeping with using what I had (although I did have to buy the black tappers. Shh, do not tell anyone) I looked to my pantry for inspiration. You could use any beans and rice but these went with my color theme. The only trick was keeping the candles up, because the beans were not going to. I used my trusty tacky wax (I cannot live without that stuff) but you could use fimo, play-dough or some kind off clay. Pick something the same color as your beans stick a ball of it in your container and push the candle in it. I set the candles at different odd angels. Filled the dish with the beans and set it on platter of wild rice. I really love the look of this centerpiece. Next time I will show you a super easy gathered runner xoxo
PS. I am looking for one person who paid $18.00 without shipping for Wren Bay. If it is you, I owe you $1.25. Please e-mail me. Thank you xoxo
