I started with a few items from around the house. I am working on more height on either side of the television without blocking the television.
REfind, and the non-traditional green-gold glass pumpkin (awesome HomeGoods find for $9.99!) which is nice and low so it doesn't block the TV. The red pitcher was a birthday gift from a wonderful friend a few years ago - great for the sangria that I never make! Then I added a little ceramic bird that had been gracing our dining room through the summer.
Such a minor change but I like it so much more. As you have read and heard a million times before, odd numbers of items always look better and more natural. It is still a work in progress (like everything in my house) but I will enjoy looking at it until I break out the real Halloween stuff.
