I took the challenge!
Considering that Katie issued this pinteresting proposal on none other than my birthday and that I missed the last challenge, I felt the need to definitely get in on the action this time! So, today I’m linking/pinning up with Katie, Sherry, Ana, and Erin.
I pinned this
to my outfit inspiration board a while ago. I’m not sure of the original source but I’ve seen this outfit on a number of fall wardrobe inspiration lists around blogland. This outfit stood out to me for two reasons. One – I never would have thought to pair that Burberry scarf with olive green, and yet it looks so great together. Two – I already have that scarf. Well, truth be told, mine is actually a knockoff. I bought it years ago for $22. I’m not usually a knockoff kind of girl but this scarf looks a lot like the real thing. While I was definitely inspired to try wearing my scarf with a little olive green this season I was also inspired to turn this outfit into a tablescape.
I challenged myself to use only what I already had on hand. I laid the scarf down first. Then I put together a simple centerpiece. I used a wooden tray that is the same color as the boots and handbag and layered it with moss and pumpkins ( I painted last year). The wine bottle candleholders (were a gift from my mother-in-law a few years ago) bring in more of that olive green color.
I already had the olive green napkins. To pull in the denim part of the outfit, I made napkins rings using an old pair of jeans my son had outgrown.
I hot glued a gold leather ribbon (I use for wrapping small gifts) to the edge and then hot glued the edges together.
