Welcome to my Fall Home Tour. This year, I decided to go pink. Non-traditional, I know, but I love muted pinks and blush tones. There’s a softness to those colors that just lends itself to a season of knitted mittens, and fuzzy blankets, and snuggles by a crackling fire.
I love Fall, can you tell?
I thoroughly enjoy decorating my dining room table for holidays, and this tablescape is taking me from September into November.
The centerpiece was made using a Mercury glass candlestick, some Styrofoam, and an assortment of faux flowers from Michaels. I used moss to cover the Styrofoam in the end. Then I surrounded the centerpiece with a variety of pumpkins, berries, Magnolia flowers, pinecones, and Mercury glass tealights.
Remember my blue pumpkins in Autumn Reminisce? I simply painted them blush this time around.
For the place setting, I used champagne chargers from Michaels, my white china, and these beautiful plates from Anthropology (gift from my awesome sister who knows I love, love, love plates)! The flatware is the Sawyer Collection from World Market.
I made those Feather Napkin Rings! Aren’t they gorgeous?
I kept the buffet table pretty simple. I hung a beaded wreath in front of the mirror with a strip of burlap (a little glamour meets rustic) and added some moss, pinecones, and feathers to an Easter-turned-Fall-basket.
I wanted to incorporate more blush and pink tones on the mantle as well. I added some silver and blush pumpkins, as well as some pale pink Azaleas. I tucked moss and feathers in between for texture and whimsy. I used some scrapbook paper leftover from my Valentine’s Day decor and printed Love Fall on it, then inserted it into a glass frame I found at Marshalls.
Here I used a few Magnolia flowers, Silverleaf, and pinecones.
Remember these Mercury glass candle holders from last year’s A Simple White Christmas? They are now pumpkin stands.
Baskets, Pillows, and Nests
I have been wanting this basket from Target for some time now. Love being able to write on the chalk label. I have always adored the saying Come Sit a Spell, but who knows? I may change it to Come Snuggle as the weather continues to cool. Whatever…I can have fun with it, right?
On the bar, I added a bird’s nest with a pumpkin. I love the Guinea fowl feathers against the pale pink pumpkin.
I recovered all of our chair and sofa cushions with various shades of grays and tans (Hancock Fabrics had an awesome sale on their upholstery fabrics, and I simply could not resist). All covered are removable, so they can come off again in the spring. Even better, right?
Another little bird nest for the side table.
Happy Fall, Y’all!
