Decorate with Beans?
You're having your wedding at an older home and need to decorate the mantle for a fall wedding... what can you do? Other than the obvious floral options, try some of these ideas from A Pop of Pretty. Not planning a wedding? No problem. These ideas will be perfect for any fall occasion.
Beans, beans and more beans! The photo above from A Pop of Pretty's web site gives you the layering look I like best, but feel free to adapt it to suit you. Any color combination will work. Make it as complex or simple as you like. I recommend using at least 3 layers for color contrast. Add the tiny pumpkins or some gourds to the top.
For a more color coordinated look, you can actually dye navy beans. I like the natural look, but if you have to have matchy-matchy--by all means dye them!
