Easy Fall Centerpiece:: Menu Vase DIY

2015-09-09_17-38-37

Wednesday, September 23rd marks the first day of fall. Transitioning your home from summer vibrancy to fall hues can be a bit of a challenge, especially in a month like September. October and November lend themselves so easily to decor because of the holidays within them, but September is a totally different story. If you’re anything like me, you’re eager to make a few changes, but aren’t quite sure where to begin.

This fall centerpiece is definitely an easy fix to get your table in the autumn spirit. ¬†One of the parties in my cookbook, Picture Perfect Parties Rizzoli NY, is all about Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is a staple at the Josephs; people gathered on Sunday includes our family and our friends. The entire point of Sunday Supper is to hang out enjoy comfort foods and wrap-up the weekend. So give it a whirl! You’ll love this tradition as much as we do.

This DIY is perfect for Sunday supper, and it would be perfect for Thanksgiving. You will use this great addition to your table scape again and again.

The step-by-step instructions are simple, and the items needed you probably already have on hand, and if you don’t, are easy to find. I love the texture that chalk adds to the vase. Be sure to add vibrant flowers to really make everything pop.

Have fun creating the menu vase DIY, and don’t stress if it doesn’t turn out perfectly; that’s part of the fun! BTW this is a great craft project to do with the kids, get them involved because they will be so proud when you unveil your table scape to friends. Happy Sunday Supper everyone.
