Holiday Decorating by the Experts!

The beautiful tablescape in this month's Martha Stewart Living magazine that had Joni hyperventilating.

Join us at Skirted Roundtable this week as we fumble our way around the topic of holiday decorating with an emphasis on the fall season now upon us. We three are no experts as you will soon learn - it's lots of laughs as we talk about Linda's gilded walnuts and shrunken cranberries and Megan's Christmas tree named Ramona. Poor Joni is left out in cold with a few Radko dreidels. Join in the fun and leave us a comment of what you do about holiday decorating - we can use some new ideas, that's for sure!!

We all thought this was a gorgeous way to decorate a fall mantel.

Joni's big idea for fall decorating, taken straight from Martha Stewart: put yellow food coloring in apothecary jars.

What NOT to strive for when decorating for fall!!
