It must be fall...

Because this weekend I was inspired to go from this:





To this...






Every fall I love buying baby gourds and displaying them in a bowl. Each one is truly unique, and they capture the spirit of fall beautifully. They're a steal in comparison to any bowl-filler you'd find at Pottery Barn, and will usually last through Thanksgiving.




The possibilities for a fall-worthy centerpiece are endless- in addition to gourds, why not try any other symbols of the season, such as apples...

Or you can gather up a few pinecones....

You could also try acorns (and if you have little children, I'm sure they'd love to collect them for you!)

Even wheat would make a lovely centerpiece that would last much longer than fresh flowers...

And of course, everyone loves baby pumpkins- the white ones are a unique, chic twist on this classic.

From the MoS outtake reel- can you tell why plants don't normally last very long in my house?





Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Have you make any updates in your home for fall?
