Fall nesting doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. Just do a little something every day to inspire yourself.
I love to find simple, everyday opportunities to make my home feel cozier and more fallish.
An easy place to get started is to make your table pretty.
It’s how you look at what you have and what you do with it every single day that changes everything. — Melissa Michaels (that’s ME!)
I picked up this pretty floral bouquet yesterday while I was at a local farmer’s market. I thought it was a perfect fall color palette to transition this room from summer to fall!
Of course, a side-benefit of the bouquet is that I had to first clear some clutter and wipe the table off, too.
A bouquet can’t be set on a cluttered table, it just doesn’t inspire the right mood, you know?
Treating myself to a bouquet of flowers can motivate me to launch into a cleaning and decorating frenzy! As I wiped off the table to set the flowers in the middle, I suddenly was inspired to keep the momentum going. I proceeded to tidy up and change a few more things around the dining room and into the living room (I’ll share more in an upcoming post.)
I’d say I got my money’s worth with this bouquet!
Is it just me, or does a bouquet of flowers inspire you to clean, too?
