Thinking back on my childhood, I love that my mom always decorated for each season/holiday. I think it added some anticipation and excitement that made looking forward to each holiday even more fun. Now that I have my own kids and get to experience holidays through the eyes of a kid again, I'm trying to do a little more seasonal decorating!
I was so happy that I had enough of the fabric I used for the kids' trick-or-treat bags left to make a table runner.
I found this table runner on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect. I wanted something that would show off the larger scale fabrics, like the cats. Sadly there was no pattern or tutorial, but I searched for a Dresden plate template and was able to figure it out.
I'm really happy with how it turned out, and love having something festive on our table!
