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!

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
