Magazine copy cat challenge, ready, set, let's GO!

We certainly get inspiration from magazines, and now currently all the blogs we follow.
I found quite a few Christmas inspirations, however, I thought way too early for that.
I did find an online one
from Country Living, I just adored.

I thought, I can do this one, I have the chair, pumpkins, candles, candy corn and a cute little caddy!

so here we go...

First of all it was a very cold and windy day to be lighting candles...surprising, they stayed lit.

My cute little chicken wire caddy filled with candy corns and flowers, and added some napkin rings for a splash more of color.

As you can see I am having fun with some photo shots too....

I wish the leaves were all turned, but not quite yet.

And there you have my simple magazine copy cat challenge.

Thanks so much for joining in on the fun.
This will be a MONTHLY party, so get your thinking caps on for next time, if you missed this time around!
Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Last chance for the 
{$50.00} Cutting edge stencil giveaway

I really need to remember where I'm copy catting from and link to your party.

Her decorating is amazing.What a fun party and I promise to join in the fun, soon.

I love your chair-pumpkin-candle vignette. Very cute! I did my best, but as always happens when I do crafts, the final product is far from the original. I think it is more of an inspiration than a copy-cat. Thanks for hosting the linky party.

Great copycat-ing Debbie! I was too late last month but it also was sort of a FAIL. I think I've thrown out the magazine I was using by now. Darn!! I will get in on this one of these days!

That was such a cute arrangement! I love the wire basket. The candy corn make a great filler. I wouldn't eat it that way! A little late in the day linking up but I whipped this together this evening. Hope you're enjoying your Halloween!
