To celebrate the season (such that it is in FL) we had a formal fall dinner party and I did a complete autumn table setting. Complete with place cards.
See those pretty centerpieces? I made them with supplies from Joann's I decided it would be safer to use an LED candle on the inside instead of an actual candle so I didn't burn the house down, or so the 2 year old doesn't get a hold of it. What I failed to notice however is that the LED candles didn't have a timer, just an on off button and it is on. the. bottom. If I take the candle out all those little acorns and pinecones all fall in. FAIL. I have since purchased timer ones which is much smarter ;) .
Here's a closer look
I actually switched the beans out for brown craft moss from Michaels in the end and I like that a bit better.
Today I made a Fall sensory bin for the little monkey. He especially likes picking up one leaf and dropping it so it floats down. He's been doing that for almost 10 minutes (which in his little world is half an eternity). Here's a pic.
Happy Fall Y'all!
