Simple Fall Decorating and Vignette | With Huge Mercury Glass Vase

Remember last week when I talked about decorating with large vases and accessories? Those large vases really make a statement, and in that post I mentioned that I had just gotten one. I’d call it my first big statement piece as far as accessories go. But anyway, I did some simple Fall decorating and created a little vignette on our entryway table/dresser using said new large vase, and here she is.

Yowsa! Isn’t it huge?? I just love it though.

I was challenged to go shopping (I know such an awful gig I have) on Chippmunk’s savings search engine site using their coupons from great stores we all know and love, and then use those steals that I found to create a little home decor project. I decided to do a simple Fall vignette because well, I love Fall as you all have heard me say a thousand times now. :) I saw that they had Pottery Barn coupons on their site, so my eyes looked no further and I went to town.

I ordered the big mercury glass vase from PB on sale for $79, and the branch of leaves also from Pottery Barn for $49.50. I used a 10% off coupon I found on Chippmunk, and I also received free shipping so I was happy with my deals! I love that the big vase can be used all year round too, which was important to me in searching for something to buy.

I put out a few of my rub ‘n buff metallic pumpkins from last year, and also a few pumpkins and gourds I found at Homegoods. Yep, I’m still loving all things shiny and gold. :)

The leaves on the branch are so pretty and realistic looking. And for anyone wondering, it is just one massive stem that’s very long, and I had to bend it to fit in here. And I had to use all of my body weight to bend it. No lie. It’s a strong little thing. It came in a super long box, and the vase came in a huge box. Never underestimate the scale of things at Pottery Barn. :)

But don’t you think the large vase makes a big difference?  Now I’ll probably be a vase snob and think everything is wimpy in comparison. :-)

Now would you like to share your inspiration with other people and show them what kind of steals you got? Well Chippmunk has an expert shopper gallery where you can upload photos of your own steals and deals and they even have a fun contest running right now. From now until September 18, 5 winners will each win a $100 gift card to the Chippmunk store of their choice based on votes. Have a pretty home decor project or great fashion find to share that you think you got a good deal on? Well upload it on their expert shopper page so you can be in the running for one of the gift cards. Woohoo!

Are you a believer in big vases now like me?

  6. Love the vase! I really like all the gold mixed in with the mercury glass ~ classy.


  7. It turned out lovely!!

  8. It looks beautiful!!! An idea about replicating the branch (for those of us who do not want to spend the $49.50 =-)), is to get a couple of real tree branches, take the leaves off, and hot glue orangy-red fall fake leaves like the ones on the picture. You cannot get more realistic than that–and it will cost you maybe $5.00. I Love the vase and everything else! Great job!

  9. Absolutely gorgeous…I love it!!!

  19. No matter why you want to find a pair of night vision goggles the great thing is now
    you can. When the military finally lifted the ban and
    opened them up for public use their has been a huge
    demand for night vision goggles ever since. You will often see these devices used
    to report on wars and the image we often see on television, where they used to be

  20. It’s hard to come bby well-informed people on this topic,
    however, you sound liike you know what you’re talking about!

  21. Where did you get the mirror? Love it!


  1. […] go together anyway? That’s a downright lie. DO IT. You can see the example of that in my Fall display table with the big mercury glass vase. The gold pumpkin, the silver gourd, and the mercury glass vase all compliment each other nicely I […]
