A Fun Decorating Idea !

Welcome to the 74th run of "Sunday Favorites"!!! 

Thanks Happy to Design!

Sunday Favorites 

I wanted to share a fun post I did last Fall and join in the Sunday Favorites!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

My sister came up with this really fun idea!


All you need to buy is a string of orange lights
from K Mart or Walmart.
I bought mine last year and I think they were $2.99.
Everything else you probably have on hand!


Last year I put them in a large glass bowl.
My sister uses a punch bowl.
You layer Fall silk leaves, pumpkins, gourds, wooden apples, whatever you have and as you are putting these into your bowl add the lights.
When it's dark the lights will shine through
and give a beautiful amber glow to the room.
This year I put my lights inside a wicker pumpkin layering them with silk leaves.


It looks GREAT at night when you have soft lights and candles on in the house!


 Enjoy your Sunday!


Happy Fall!!!
And THANKS to my sister, Delores
for all of the wonderful ideas and inspiration!

Hello sweet friend,

Ohhh...I love this idea!!! I love how the lights illuminate all the autumn pretties in the glass bowl! So easy to do and yet sooo pretty! Love your orange wicker pumpkin! The lights look fabulous shining through the wicker! Such a great autumn decorating tip..thanks so much for sharing it with us today for Sunday Favorites!!! Such a treat, my friend!

Warmest autumn wishes,

PS...I was just wondering...since halloween is just around the corner, do you make costumes for some of your sweet dolls? If so, I would love to see them! Hint...Hint!!! Hehe!
