Fall Vignettes


I find it difficult to decorate for Fall when it is still 94 degrees out, but I couldn’t resist starting since I am so eager for it to arrive this year.  I decided to start in our dining area and changed out the tabletop display on the chest I have in here. 


I took away most of it and added in this chalkboard, which was part of a set from Décor Steals.  I hung a small wreath/candle ring over the handle portion and just wrote Welcome Fall {there wasn’t enough room to add “thank God you’re here, it’s been a horrible Summer”!} on it.



I added my GW tureen find with another wreath type piece sitting on the platter and encircling the bottom of the tureen.  Super simple ways to add Fall in!

Some pumpkins from Becky at Timewashed added in and my simple Fall tabletop is done.  This is my third year buying pumpkins from Becky and I love the different designs she comes up with every year.


I then moved over to the table and removed this more Summery centerpiece.


I added in a toile table runner that I had made a year or so ago for our dining room table at our old house.  Then I just added a pedestal tray with a pumpkin and leafy candle ring as a centerpiece.


I also removed my white ruffled slips from the chairs.


I couldn’t leave the ceiling fixture all plain, so I picked up a leaf garland at Michael’s and just draped it around.

Some pinecones made it into the teacups over on the French chest, along with a couple more pumpkins from Becky at Timewashed.




More pumpkins from Becky filled up the pedestal birdcage/cloche on the kitchen counter.


In the living room, I added a few small faux pumpkins to the mantel. 


Some more pine cone filler to the wood tote on the coffee table.


By the front door, I changed out my faux lilacs for some faux Fall flowers in the tote.



And one of Kristen’s swags for my birdcage right around the corner from this hall tree.



Except for adding in some real pumpkins in October, that’s it for me for Fall!

Love all of the fall accents you added. I agree, it is hard to get into the fall spirit when it is still so warm out. We are finally cooling off here in Colorado so it is starting to feel like fall. YAY to that!
