Amber Grains of Wheat…

October 28, 2011 by admin

There’s something so gorgeous, so inspiring about the colours in nature.  If you train your eye to appreciate the subtle variations in, say a stalk of grain you’ll be amazed at the rich beauty that can be found.  Last fall I styled up my front hallway for a fall decorating story for House & Home.  This wheat sheaf (from a local market) is all the decoration this space needed.  And a luxurious brown ribbon from Mokuba never hurt anyone.

Why not try your hand at decorating with nature?

    I have 3 mini pumpkins stacked on top of each other in a square vase. They recently relocated from living room to dining room table. I like the harvest look minus the in-your-face Hallowe’en stuff! Except that I bought spider webs at the dollar store yesterday….

    Our wreath on the front door is one of braided wheat-it’s simple,gorgeous & says autumn.The farmers mkts are always a great resource for decorating & as an added bonus often one can eat the props! What’s not to love?

    I really love this idea.

    LOVE! I’m stealing this idea for our front hallway…and I know it will work because we have the same front hallway ( I should get over this, but it’s so fun to see a house so similar to mine, but perfectly styled!) I’ll send you a photo!

    I am very impressed with the wheat design. don’t have access to any for tomorrow when we are having guests for dinner. Will create some type of wreath for the front door with red branches, asparagus ferns and seed um with a large bronze bow. and put a pot of bronze mums beside the door. We have apple trees in our front yard as a backdrop and will polish up the best and reddest for take home baskets.Wish I had some wheat though. Love your ideas. Not sure what to decorate the table with. Nancy
