Harvest Decor

Autumn has officially arrived!  A chill is in the air and the leaves have turned and are falling all around.  It’s time I shared my fall decorations with you all.  I skipped right over Halloween at our house this year (with the exception of a black cat on the porch for trick-or-treaters) and went straight into Autumn Elegance.  Here’s a look around the house.

In the kitchen, I spruced up a footed crystal bowl with some gum balls (seed pods from the Gum tree—these things are good for something after all!), acorns, berries, and a candle, for a little fall feeling.


And on the kitchen table, my fun, green pumpkin from Michael’s sits on a white cake stand and is surrounded by mercury glass votives (Thanks, Andi!)  It’s cute and it really looks real… love the discoloration and scuff marks. :)


On in the living room, the little cabinet is snazzied up with a beaded green pumpkin (seems to be the color of choice for my pumpkins this year) in a wooden tray filled with leaves.  I am so happy with my new console cabinet… It’s another great place for me to display seasonal things (including seasonal, color appropriate photos of me and Michael.. hehe)!

Fall centerpieces from my sister’s wedding flank the television.


And a little floral arrangement decorates the side table by the couch.


In the dining room, the cornucopia is overflowing with miniature pumpkins and leaves…


while Bandit is hiding behind the Indian corn!


The chandelier is sporting some grapevine, leaves and a few metallic pumpkins.


And the mirror is wearing its fall berry wreath, as usual. :)


Outside on the porch, a few pumpkins and mums and a fall wreath herald the season.


Happy Fall!
