Black & White Thanksgiving

More and more this fall, I'm seeing simple black and white décor that you can incorporate into your home. It just looks more graphic and bold rather than super fallish. I'm not completely ready to turn my back on brown and orange (just wait until you see my plans for my Thanksgiving tree in my sunroom), but I'm also being drawn to alternative color palettes.

I grabbed this discounted fall wreath two days after Halloween at 75% off. I just love the glittered black leaves.

I then turned to one my favorite vintage graphics website for inspiration....Graphics Fairy and downloaded some of her Thanksgiving images to make tags for my wreath.

I scoured my home for other black and white items to add to my bedroom mantle.

I rather like it.
My bedroom mantle was a little lonely after Halloween.

Happy crafting!
Have a super weekend doing something you love!

What a great wreath, getting it on sale makes it even better! Love your black & white theme, and your use of the flower frog as a photo holder, too!
