Inspirational Acorns

I love the change of all seasons, but as I get older I think Fall is starting to become my favorite time of year.  I just love the warm days, cool evenings and all the warm colors that Fall brings.  

I have, as well as a  lot of you, been busy decorating my home for Fall.  I wanted to share with you my kitchen tablescape. 


I layered each place setting with a red leaf placemat, a  wicker charger, a leaf plate which I bought at Dollar Tree last year, a gold napkin and an inspiration acorn that I made. 


I made my acorns using my Cricut and the Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) program.  The SCAL provided the design for the acorn and I cut them out using my Cricut.   I  typed four different inspiring verses in Word , printed them on vellum, added trim and metallic natural leaves, tied raffia on each tag and attached it to the acorns.  

The acorn verses are:  “A happy family is but an earlier heaven.”


“Love is like the sun coming out of the clouds and warming the soul.”


“The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing.”


And last but not least this one says “So thankful for a house full of people we love.” 


My centerpiece for the table is a small wicker basket filled with potpourri, a candle and a pumpkin.  I love the texture of this pumpkin! 


I also added one of my thrift store bottles to the centerpiece.  I filled it with coffee beans and added a floral stem. 


Hope you enjoyed my kitchen tablescape. I love having the inspirational acorns a part of my fall tablescaping  and the best part of all is when my grandsons ask me to read  what’s on the acorns.   It makes for a meaningful tablescape. 

Happy Autumn Day! 


P.S.  I’m linking to the following party today:  Plant a Punkin Seed Party @ Punkinseed Productions.
