fall decor 2015

I thought I would share my fall decor before the house gets spookified.
I know once the calendar page turns to October the kids will be begging for me to pull all the Halloween bins out of the attic.
Fall decor 1
So come on in & be greeted by my tiniest pumpkin.
Fall decor 2
I. just. love. that. stem.
Fall decor 3
It’s the only reason I bought this little guy.
Fall decor 4
Across the foyer on the bombay chest – sorry I think my hand shook.
Fall decor 6
Simple but still says fall to me.
Fall decor 5
Heading into the dining room.
Fall decor 7
I shared my fall glass cloches on the dining room table in detail here a few days ago.
Fall decor 8
There’s not much more I added for fall in the dining room except my burlap & pine cone garland.
Fall decor 9
You can see how I made this last year here.
Fall decor 10
In the living room the mantel got a full make-over for the season.
Fall decor 11
This time I took it all the way across to the far wall.
The asymmetry of the mantel drives me nuts but things could be worse, right?
Fall decor 12
Natural fall elements mixed in w/ silver plate, old books & cast iron urns.
I love the mix of the rustic with older refined items.
Fall decor 13
I’m still loving the stems on these white pumpkins.
I love the scale of these pine cones my in-laws sent me from South Carolina years ago.
Fall decor 14
Last year I added feathers to my decor; I especially love the pheasant feathers {wish I had more actually}.
Fall decor 15
I put my dollar store white pumpkins in some of my lanterns.
Fall decor 16
You can read how I made these here.
Super easy & super fun.
Fall decor 17
I also showed you the pumpkin filled birdcage in detail here.
Fall decor 18
Some mercury glass love on the coffee table.
Fall decor 21
My moss pumpkins which I made here are still in the over sized beverage bucket.
Fall decor 19
I gave them new stems since the old ones weren’t doing it for me.
Fall decor 20
Have you noticed that it’s all about the stem?
Fall decor 22
My book pumpkins sit on my mom’s secretary w/ my vintage typewriter.
Fall decor 24
This typewriter makes staging this area so much fun.
Fall decor 25
It’s all about the details.
Fall decor 23
Not sure when this will get old.
And last but not least the kitchen got a few simple details since the treat station is the biggest festivity.  If you missed it you can view it here.
Fall decor 26
A big bowl of granny smiths (our favorite apples).
Fall decor 28
A cotton wreath.
Fall decor 27
And a simple centerpiece on the kitchen table.
Happy Fall fluffing!
