Scarecrows, Roosters and Pumpkins...Oh My!



Can you tell I'm ready for fall? I am having so much fun making new arrangments for my Etsy store! I wanted to show you a few that I just listed if you are interested. I am really getting in a creative mood again and might not sleep tonight! lol...I'm on a kick!!


I found a few of these cute scarecrows the other day and thought they would look adorable in arrangements. I am pleased with how this one turned out!

I am always on the lookout for roosters! Everything I find is just too big. However, I came across a few of these and bought them right up! Mr. Roo looks just perfect nestled among the flowers and berries.


I mentioned that I have sold several of these beaded pumpkin arrangements...They are great used as a centpiece or mixed in with fall decor.






It's still a little early, but I am so ready to start decorating for fall, are you?

Your arrangements are beautiful! I sure wish I could find a smaller rooster like you have in the arrangement! Wher did you find them? I AM ready to decorate but am trying to hang onto summer til after my b-day on the 26th. XO, Pinky

I am anxious for fall decoration, but I am waiting until after Labor Day. I love those beaded pumpkin arrangements...I love pumpkins...so pretty!!

Kristen, you are so talented. You are surely getting me in the mood for Fall. The Rooster arrangement is adorable, all of them are, but you know how I love Roo's! Thanks for sharing! XOXO ~Liz

Paula said...

Love your arrangements! I'm not quite ready for fall decorating just yet, but it won't be long until I am.

Love your arrangements, Kristin! I'll bet that Roo one goes quickly! I saw they are selling Mums at the supermarket; Fall can't get here fast enough for me this year! The humidity was horrible this Summer.

Toni said...

They are all so pretty. It's too hot here to decorate for fall, but I am brain storming what I want to do this year. I have even picked up a few new things to use.

Patti said...

I love fall but not ready to bring it on yet...I'll wait 4 more weeks! Your arrangements are so pretty!

Love those arrangements for the table; good ideas--looking for something on the entry-way table. I'm sooo ready for autumn and fall-festivals! Happy fall decorating!

Marianne said...

Beautiful arrangements. I just love the fall, it's my favorite time of the year and so much fun decorating for it. I want one of those scarecrow tassels. Are you going to be making more, there are none in your etsy store. Let me know, they are adorable!
Marianne :)

Very pretty, Kristen.

A Hint of Home said...

I'm ready for cooler weather for sure! It's been record breaking for most of the country.
Love all your pretty arrangements!

Your arrangements are very nice and colorful. I also get excited thinking about the fall season. You are wise to get started early. Have a great weekend. Shannon

I am NOT ready for fall yet by any means. I'm just getting into the hang of summer..*s*...but I do adore what you've made.
Lovely.
Thank you for sharing.
