I seem to have acquired a lot of pumpkins in the past few years. I have pumpkins made of glass and others that are ceramic. I have a few velveteen covered pumpkins and a large array of foam pumpkins in a variety of sizes. In most years I add real pumpkins to the mix. Greg says I have enough. He's probably right, lol!
I've used mostly pumpkins in this autumn's vignettes, a bit of a change from those I've done previously. On the kitchen island I used multiple colors and shapes on two cake stands. A coordinating towel bunched around their bases adds warmth to the cool colors of the granite.
I added a candle in a warm copper and two candle holders in bronze metal. The candle holders have cutout pumpkin shapes!
Throughout the year I have seasonal displays in the bottom shelf of the built-in hutch that stores crystal and glassware. This fall I've used blue and white china, pumpkins, a sparkly wire ball and - with a nod to Thanksgiving - a turkey.
I'm not a huge fan of decorating with turkey themes, but I thought this fellow was cute!
I have problems photographing anything I put in the kitchen cabinets and built-ins. The glass fronted ones have interior lights, which are pretty in person but throw too much glare. Ditto the overhead recessed lights. Although the kitchen itself can be bright in natural light, the dark cabinet color absorbs the light. I'm upgrading to a better camera soon, so fingers crossed for future pics!
I like how each vignette refers to the other.
I keep our everyday dishes in the other built-in hutch. For fall I've added ceramic pheasants, quails and ducks. But no pumpkins!
I've added fall decor to the foyer chest. More pumpkins, this time with both a vine ball and a sparkly wire ball. I placed faux mums and berries in the ceramic container I used for the greens of March.
I love how all the shades of autumn mix effortlessly.
Greg is somewhat aghast that I didn't polish the candelabras, but the warm glow of the slightly tarnished pieces seemed right for fall.
I haven't yet decorated any other areas for fall. A bit behind, I'll admit.
Tell me, where do you stand on fall decor this year?
