2. Use Local Materials
-trim branches from your front yard, neighbors, or family members
-make sure to buy you pumpkins early if you want fake ones because they sell out at Michaels early.
-use things from around your home to personalize your table scape ie: old books or candle holders.

4. Try One Stand Out Piece

5. Less is more…More is more!
-Sometimes it’s all about the initial wow factor and you can edit and take away things when it is time to actually eat ALL THE FOOD
-Snap a pic of it first when its perfect and then less is more to actually eat

6. Throw an Unexpected Twist
-use something creative and interesting that your guests wouldn’t expect ie: mini pumpkins with names stamped on them for place holders or old books to place silverware on!

10. Remember the Room
-this is my interior designer tip: add pillows to your head chairs or benches.
-make sure décor on your buffets or walls coordinate with your table scape
-if your aren’t cooking all the food (I never do that) make sure fall candles are lit
and holiday music is playing.
