That being said, I hope you will understand why this post will be a mostly pictorial visit through my kitchen and dining room this year. A lot of it is the same but I hope you can garner a few ideas from the things I have
I will only comment on the new ideas. Which, the birds in the above pictures happen to be. The branches you see were once displayed in a tall metal French flower bucket strung with orange lights. Some times I had my Halloween cones and Bingo cards hanging from the branches but most recently I had it filled with crows. Let's just say the bag of branches had an unhappy demise when they got tangled in my garage door mechanism. Since I didn't want to throw them out, I wired them together and stuck them behind this panel that hangs in the dining room. Then, I perched the surviving birds on the branches and I am happy with it.
