I'm a little fall banner crazy lately. But this black, white, and metallic fall banner is now my absolute fave. I think I may hang one errrrrr'where, y'all.
I'm not an orange person. I try to be. But let's face it, the love just isn't there. It kind of kills me when people call my washer and dryer orange...they're red...the color of awesome. Even outside of fall and Halloween, I know orange is uber popular right now. I'm that one person sitting out waiting for this trend to pass. So, I created this banner after seeing a non-orange pumpkin that I fell in love with. It inspired some black, white, and metallic fall decor 'round these parts, y'all.
As all good crafty blog posts do, this one begins at the HobLob. I was shopping for decorations for my son's birthday party. Then I saw this presh black, white, and gold pumpkin. And into the buggy it went. I figured it was my son's way of thanking me for all the work I'm doing on his bash. He's so thoughtful.
Besides that, we're actually having this par-tay here at home this weekend. Whenever we have people over, my husband always notes that new things appear. It's like magic, I tell ya.
Have you ever seen the episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where Ray is preaching to Deborah about the "fake house" they create when people come over? Yeah, we have one of those, too. All week, it's a laundry basket here, sofa throw pillows all over the stinkin' place (they are the bane of my existence, y'all), and kids' shoes left in the perfect place to trip over (nicely blended into the rug, no less). People come over and this place turns into a beautifully decorated "fake house". I honestly wish I kept it like that everyday. It's all peaceful and pleasant. But, ya know...we do live here.
I included pumpkins in this one as well. If you want to just hang the pumpkins, they're in a separate download to grab on their own. I pretty much hang all of my banners on baker's twine these days, y'all. I just love the extra pattern it subtly adds.These print onto letter-sized paper...card stock works the best.

I ended up hanging these on the drawers of my buffet in my kitchen. The drawers are 100 years old and stick so badly that I never use them. This was a fun way to dress up the front of that piece.
Happy Black, White, and Metallic Fall, y'all! ;)
