Gearing Up For Fall

My sister's annual jewelry party (at my house tomorrow) has pushed me into action...I had to get my house fall worthy (Halloween decorating will take place next week).
Guests will be greeted by this guy:
You already saw my living room dressed up for fall, but here are my other rooms:
Hallway (I used an old toolbox):
Kitchen table (inside of an old tool box):
Family room table:
Here is an arrangement I created for the party. I just used autumn sedum and wild bittersweet (it grows everywhere around here...so lucky).

I'll take some shots of the party set up (not sure the lighting will cooperate, though). 
In the meantime, I have a package deal up for auction at The DIY Club's 31 Days of Hope auction! Check it out here for a worthwhile cause.
