The Better Homes and Gardens website has some terrific inspirational ideas posted these days for the holidays. All photos from this post are from that site and I thought some were quite clever. The one above had to come because it reminded me of my TLC cat!
This idea just was simply funny to me, ya, sick sense of humor but I love it. The wheelbarrow dumping bones in the yard, genious I say!
I also liked this simple display on the napkin, but the napkin fold is what made it. (site also has the folding instructions for several other patterns too) Kind of looks like it belongs there somehow, doesn't it? But hey, nobody says you can't paint the darn pumpkin (or gourd) any darn color you want to coordinate with a napkin of choice. Thinking it needs some felt leaves, or simply dried leaves on the pumpkin though for a bit more pop.
So, check out the Better Homes and Gardens web site for a zillion more ideas, some fancy, some simple. They are also doing a 1000 days of holiday special that looks kind of interesting too.
