Fall Centerpiece

Hi everyone!

I just put together a simple little centerpiece to sit on our coffee table. I used a larger charger plate that I got at a thrift store this past summer, same thing with the metal leaf candle holder, the "berry picks" are from my Christmas stash of clearanced florals, the 2 wood acorns and large fall pick are from a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, place mat from Walmart and the candle was from Pier Imports clearanced from last year.

Since I have a toddler, I keep things pretty simple when it comes to decorating at levels she can reach. But, I refuse to do the whole "Well, I don't decorate there because I have a toddler who might ruin it". If I did that, how the heck is she supposed to learn what she can and cannot touch? Yes, it is more work for me, but the alternative is not acceptable to me. So, that is MY opinion of decorating and toddlers. LOL But, I did keep it simple. Everything can be put back together in less than a minute.

Here is just a little pumpkin I had. I used some clearanced Martha Stewart scrapbooking sticky back ribbon and a Halloween scrapbook sticker.
