We absolutely love creating new products for you here at From the Heart Art. We want them to be beautiful, as well as useful!
So I used pieces from our most recent Lemonade Reminders Encouragement kit to decorate a centerpiece for a table. And I just want to show you how easy it is! Using the Blue Pumpkin design cutting board, the Gather Pumpkins 5x7 print, the Cook Menu/Grocery pad and shareables, I've created several "mini" table-scapes.
Above is an extremely easy and simple idea to create a center-piece for a table!
There are pumpkins at every single grocery store these days! So grab some of your favorite colors, grab the wonky looking pumpkins, grab all shapes and sizes so you can use them for table decor. Get your favorite platter or decorative tray (no need to buy one, unless you absolutely want to!) and place the pumpkins however you want.
And make the beautiful Blue Pumpkin cutting board the focal point! Prop it up with something or use a plate/tile stand to keep it upright. [Then just grab it when you need to cut something!] This is all you'll need to keep it simple, yet elegant!
Middle of the Road Option
Or if you like a mid-size amount of decoration, maybe this arrangement above is more your style! Keeping the cutting board as a main piece, I've just added a 5x7 Gather Pumpkins print in a picture frame and one of our Little Shareables in a mini-stand. This gives the decor more colors, more variety of height and makes it a little bigger. Depending on the size of your space, this could be what you'd like!
The Grandest Center-Piece of them All
Or if you're like me and you want EVERYTHING displayed... you have my permission to include it all! My mom tells me all the time I have too much on my table tops and countertops. And that I'll "just have to dust everything all the time". But look how beautiful it is, Debra!
The best thing about using products like these to decorate is that they are also USEFUL! I've basically created my own little space to enjoy. And this part is my favorite. Now I can pull out a journal, notecards, and our mini shareables. And enjoy some quiet time to do something that is a stress-reliever for me, writing.
I love writing. I love writing in my journals, I love writing cards of encouragement and thank you to others. [Who doesn't love getting personal mail? Cause this girl still does!] And our mini shareables have lines on the back of them to include a quick note of thanks or love to someone. I love the thought of giving someone something that will bring a smile to their face. And a lot of our products do that!
But when I need to get back to reality and the always defeating "What's for dinner?" question... I can still enjoy my table-scape and use the exclusive Cook Menu/Grocery pad to make a menu for the week and list off everything I need to buy from the store.
Being surrounded in a space with scripture and God's Word makes any daunting task enjoyable. Because I know God is always looking out for me, always there for me, no matter what I am doing. Whether it's on my knees asking for help or asking for help trying to write out a grocery list.
I am thankful for a God who is always near me, so close that I can call on Him at any time.
