Changes to Foyer, Pumpkins and Tassels!

Hey! I have made some changes to my Foyer since my last post, so I wanted to share with you all how it looks now. I am really happy with it now, so it will stay this way until Thanksgiving. We are hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I wanted to keep all of my Fall decor out until then. I know a lot of you are starting to decorate for Christmas, but I will start that Thanksgiving weekend. 

Here is my entry way table, a few posts back I showed you this Tuscan pot that I got from Big Lots and I decided to fill it with some greenery and then just add some leaves, pumpkins and gourds for a touch of fall. I added a fall flower pick from Hobby Lobby to the candlestick and instead of putting a candle on top I place a grapevine pumpkin.

 Here is a close up of the arrangement.

 This is what you see when you walk in the front door.

I found this picture at Michael's the other day, it was on sale for 19.99 and I had a 25% off coupon so it came to 14.99. I thought that was a smokin' deal for its size.

 While I was at Michael's they had all of their Fall decor 80% off, so I got this big pumpkin arrangement. Originally it was marked at 179.99 and I got it for... 29.99! My mom got one too, I will be using hers to display somewhere for Thanksgiving as well. 

This is the back shot of the pumpkin, I love that they added another smaller pumpkin to it too!

 I also got two of these smaller arrangements that were originally 29.99 and I got them for 7.99. SCORE!

 This past week I have been making custom Tassels for Shenita at Embellishments by SLR. Here are some pictures of the Tassels I have made for her. If you are interested in anything customized to your color scheme let me know I'd be glad to come up with something for you.

I am going to be making several Christmas Tassels for my Etsy store this week if you are interested.

The fall decorations are lovely, Allyson. You scored some awesome deals.
I love all the tassels you made for Shenita. They turned out so nice. Crosses are my favorite! Love the animal print ribbons you used, too. Michaels had some beautiful animal print ribbon in their Christmas section for 60% off!

Hi Allyson,
Your fall decor looks so pretty and elegant. Love the table runner. The picture you purchased is gorgeous, love the warm colors in it. Do you think one day you might be able to put together a tassel tutorial? I would love to learn how to make those, but I have not a clue how to! ;) The ones you did for Shenita are *really* nice.

Thanks for sharing! xo ~Liz

The arrangements at Michaels can't be beat...I fall in love with all of them. Your foyer look wonderful and I really like that tassel! Great work!

Allyson, I love the tassels! I want one please (the cross/animal print pictured first!)
I featured you today over at Scribbles and Swirls. Would love for you to take a look.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Also, you commented on Curb Alert! w/a great link on how to add a button. I can either get the picture to work or the code but not both, any ideas?


Lizabeth said...

Hi Allyson!
Your foyer looks wonderful! I love your pumpkin deco too! Those tassels are fabulous! I'm definitely coming over to check your Etsy shop out!

Theresa said...

Hi Allyson!
I really like your entry. I am leaving my fall decorations up until after Thanksgiving, we always decorate the Friday/Saturday after as well. Your tassels are adorable, you do an amazing job!

Denise said...

I love Michael's sales, I need to go check them out. I had a pumpkin arrangement similar to that that I got on sale a few years ago and now i can't find it. I'm thinking it might have gone out in the trash as I usually store them in black bin liners!!

Tamara said...

What is the link for your etsy store?

Allyson Pecilunas said...

Hey Tamara, I currently don't have anything listed in my Etsy store but it's located to the right on my blog. Check back in a few days and I will have some items in there!

Tamara said...

ok thanks! - I looked on your blog but didn't find it. I'll go look harder. :-)

Your foyer is lovely with all of the Fall decor. You got quite the bargains at Michaels. Love the pumpkin arrangements. The tassels you created for Shenita are awesome. Love the leopard! I also adore the large Fleur de Lis on the wall. Thanks for sharing. Oh, I see you visited Liz's new blog. I created the header, and alot of the other elements on her new blog. I love your background.....Linda
