Leopard Print and Pumpkins

A combination you definitely don't normally see together, but anyone who knows me very well knows that I've always got to have a little bit of animal print everywhere!!!  Hence, my new fall sideobard decor.  Remember these little beauties?
They are from the Family Dollar....$2 each.  I rarely use candlesticks for candles.  LOL!!  So, I could just see my pretty little pumpkins perched atop my silver candlesticks for fall on the sideboard. 
Now, isn't that much more ADORABLE than a candle???  Oh, yes it is!  Not everyone has a mini pumpkin on their silver candlestick!!

Don't you love my leopard print tray from Hobby Lobby?  I have two of these.  I love, love, love, love them because they are leopard print AND have a fleur de lis!!!!!  Did I say LOVE???
I love fall.  Have you figured that out yet?  I love traditional fall decor, but I like for it to have a little twist!  It's a little early, I know, but I need to get it finished to where I can enjoy it and have time for outside decorating in September. 


I'm linking up to Debbie Doo's Newbie Party, Coastal Charm's Thrifty Treasures, Tabletop Tuesday at a Stroll Through Life, and with Terri at It's a Party at A Creative Princess!!!  (Thank you, Terri, for telling me about your AWESOME party!!! 

Hope to see you there!!!

  15. So beautiful! I love what you've done with your décor! That leopard tray is great! Last Christmas or maybe the year before I put cream bottle brush trees in a silver candelabra! It was a hit at my Christmas party!

    Love for you to check out my kitchen that was featured in the September Romantic Homes magazine!
