Fall Decor Here and There

I've spread a bit of fall decor here and there — and I thought I'd share it in case you're still in the midst of getting ready for Thanksgiving!
 

I was entranced with the morning light streaming into the front rooms of the house this week as summer temps finally gave way to cooler (and drier) autumn weather.
 
I cleared off the round table in front of the living room windows where a vintage carafe set and a framed photo had sat throughout the summer. 

  
A golden pheasant and glass pumpkins were entwined by a mini garland of fall leaves. In the back I placed a silver coffee pot that's part of a set made in the 1920's, and filled it with faux rudbeckia. The tableau is just enough to bring the outside view inside.

  
Throughout the year I enjoy styling the bottom shelf of the hutch in the kitchen where I keep my vintage crystal and glassware. Sometimes I use a seasonal theme; at other times I design it just to enjoy dishware that I haven't used recently. I've occasionally shared those vignettes here on the blog, but others I've only posted on Instagram.

  
I love the line drawings/watercolor paintings of fall leaves and berries. I've added a selection of pumpkins, acorns and berries to echo the predominant colors on the plates.

   
I just love these salad plates! You can see them used in tablescapes in Understated Pumpkins and Russet and Olive.
 

After I put away the Halloween decor in the garden/game room, I decided the buffet was looking a bit bare. I retrieved more pumpkins from my stash (I think they're re-seeding themselves in there LOL) as well as the pert pheasant and a copper bowl I picked up in an antique mall. The bowl has a single brass ring on the back side which makes me think that it's a mixing bowl.


I also seem to have an evergrowing collection of faux florals in autumn colors! They were just enough to dress up the mantel in the family room. I like their colors and their softening effect on the stacked stone of the fireplace.

 
I shared the way I styled the foyer with a tray in a post earlier this season. The quail makes me smile every time I pass by!

  
And of course my Thanksgiving table is adorned with more quintessential fall decor!
 

I will continue to enjoy the fall scenes throughout the Thanksgiving weekend!

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Very nice, Sandra. I also get captivated sometimes by the way light comes through the windows, and start snapping photos. I will likely start transforming to Christmas soon, but I've enjoyed fall decor in my home since early September. We share Thanksgiving at a sister-in-law's, so it allows me plenty of space and time to make the transition at home.

    1. Thanks, Rita! I try to do one holiday at a time. Though I've bought a new tree and some ornaments, I won't begin to decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. I seem to enjoy each holiday more that way.

  2. Sandra, you fall decor is lovely. I love your stacked stone fireplace. We have a stone wall in our dining room that I love. Warm and cozy. Enjoy your Thanksgiving. Your blogger profile is missing your photo.

    1. Thanks Linda! I love the stone fireplace against the sky blue walls with the trees visible through the window. I'll have to look into the profile photo issue. I see it on my laptop.

  3. Sandra, I tried to comment last night but it wasn't clear if the comment went through. What I wanted to say is that your fall decor is lovely. The light shining on the glass pumpkins is so pretty and the pheasant looks perfect beside them. I love the colors of your flowers on the mantel - so fall and so bright. We have snow here so your fall display is particularly cheery to me. I hope you have a wonderful upcoming Thanksgiving!

    1. Kim, thanks for taking the trouble to try commenting again. I appreciate it! Here in Georgia fall has only really just arrived with morning temps in the 30s-40s. We had a delayed autumn, but the leaves have finally begun to fall. But many still carry their leaves of many colors so my interior decorations still match the outside.

    1. Thanks, Barbara! The pheasant finds its way onto at least one vignette or table each year!
