Beauty in the Simple

I enjoy a good pumpkin display, I have to admit, and if you have followed me for any length of time you know I usually take a “more is better” approach to decorating. I like to refer to it as “cluttery chic”.  This year I have been inspired to take a more scaled back look for the season and to find “beauty in the simple”. Enjoy my attempts!

Simple leaves on the Eiffel Tower brings to mind Fall in Europe …happy memories. 

What is more quintessential Fall than bittersweet in antique enamelware?

Several old garlands of leaves and a wire frame is all it took to make this simple but dramatic wreath.

The perfect sentiment to embrace this time of year as we grow closer to the holidays. 

Our sweet Princess has simple needs…a good costume and a basket of candy is her only requirement for a great Halloween!

  1. The Princess is certainly enjoying Halloween- too cute!! I like your “simple” approach to decorating, beautiful choices. My son and I collected fresh bittersweet last week and now it is draped over everything! One can never go wrong with bittersweet. I must admit that my approach for Halloween is “more is never enough”, I got caught up in the spirit. I love the idea of using garlands to construct the wreath, it’s fantastic. Thank-you for another lovely post. The Happiest of Halloweens to all of you!

  2. I attempt, but have a difficult time doing less. However, I try! 🙂 You’ve managed to conquer the concept. Your little Princess is a cute cheerleader! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    1. I lived on a tropical island for 8 yeasts….Navy life can be fun! I missed the fall but like you, I found it difficult to put out pumpkins and leaves when it was 80 degrees and sunny. Enjoy the holidays!
