Fall Plant Altar

For my one class (Magic and Medicine of Plants) we were asked to try to make an altar for Samhain and our plant ancestors. Of course I'm late to the party as usual.

Also because I don't really celebrate holidays much I tend to do things by season. So here is my fall time altar. My kids helped put some of the things up there (they do this all the time and are constantly bringing things in from outside like rocks, leaves and flowers). So I guess you can say it's part altar part nature table. Whatever goes pretty much here!

As for the plants on my altar we have;

milkseed pods and fluff

as well as some hydrangea that my daughter loves to bring in when it dries up in the fall (she makes me big bouquets of it!!!) She and my son also love to play with the plants I put up there and turn them into a type of talismans! So cute!

Sorry the picture is not the best. But you get the idea.


  1. This is so lovely April...and all the more beautiful because your children helped. Hope you're feeling well...

  2. This is so very beautiful! Extra fun having your little ones involved with it;-) xx
