Falling for Fall….in the Dining Room

I’m joining nine other wonderful bloggers for a “Falling for Fall” blog hop so be sure and scroll all the way to the end to visit their beautiful homes. 

I changed things up a bit in the dining room recently. I’ve realized that I really don’t like seasonal and holiday decorating that takes days to put up, and days to take down. So I just used some very simple elements in the dining room….quick and easy.

I placed an old chippy garden urn in the center of the table, stuffed some burlap down in it, and filled it with a few velvet pumpkins, green apples and pears, and a couple of moss balls, and a white baby pumpkin.

I also used a few vintage ironstone butter pats to sit individual green pears on, placed on each side of the urn.

I love the mix of texture and color against the burlap. 

I recently picked up some white and gold ceramic pumpkins on sale, from Hobby Lobby, and placed them on the sideboard hutch. The gold plays nicely with the gilt in the antique frames and mirrors.

They will be perfect for displaying right on through Thanksgiving.

Not too long ago, I found this amazing gilt gesso frame at an antique market and used it to frame some old ironstone, mounted on a burlap backing. It was perfect to sit one baby white pumpkin in each piece of ironstone.

Sitting below the framed ironstone is an old wire planter that I keep filled with various size moss balls. I added a few of the baby white pumpkins in it, as well as some of the moss pumpkins that we made a few weeks ago. To see how we made them, click here.

I think my favorite piece in the dining room though, is the velvet pumpkins piled into one of the French burlap wing chairs.

There’s just something about all that luscious velvet sitting against the burlap….they get lots of attention from everyone that sees them!

  1. I can’t stop looking through all the posts because everything is so beautiful. I bought a tiny velvet pumpkin this weekend-have a long way to go to catch up to you: ) . i was wondering if you had a tip for how you made your shades in the bedroom out of mini blinds? I have that same fabric and want to copy you: ) I am determined to possess the chandelier too, thank you for the link. cheryl

  2. Cindy,

    You are such a talent. I look at your blog everyday for inspiration. I agree with all the comments, a book in your future?

    Cheers,
    Vickey

    • Aww, thank you Vickey! All the kind words and comments mean so much to me. A book….hmmm….that would be what I call a God Smack….a dream that is bigger than I can dream….

  3. Cindy,

    So pretty, I love looking over and over just incase I have missed something:) Did you make the little square boxwood hanging on the glass door?!

    Paula

    p.s I wish I could find a pretty picture with lambs/sheeps in it where did you find your?

    • Thank you Paula! No, I didn’t make the square boxwood wreath, I actually found it at a local flea market! Ah, those sheep paintings/pictures are so hard to come by! I do luck up and find some every once in awhile. The beauty in the dining room is a new find…..I found it about at week ago at Goodwill!!

  4. Cindy your dining room is gorgeous!!! I love your beautiful velvet pumpkins..they are the prettiest I have seen!! I’m also loving your framed dishes! What beautiful art and so creative..love it!

  5. Seriously I don’t know where to start….your home in the whisperings of fall has me in Awww! And so inspired to move out of my home and into one like yours.
    Love the paneled walls meeting up with brick work, the putty colored built in has me going crazy here. Everything you have touched in this space is awwww! Inspiring.
    So much so I am returning to take another look befor I leave.

    Did you use T1-11 on the walls as paneling, I have been considering some on my walls sense I use it on my cabinets, the colour spectrum is so calming with all the rustic feel of elegance….love the grained wing chair and just enough gold to glitz up its Frenchness.

    Will return soon.

    • Thank you so much Dore! We actually covered the walls in very lightweight, tongue and groove, planks from Lowe’s. Very easy to install. Thanks so much for following along!

  6. You have a lovely house and a talent for decorating,i usually see from Anita,and truly enjoy every visit. I love those velvet pumpkins in that chair,thanks Cindy.

  7. Your dining room is so beautifully dressed for fall. Love how you placed the pretty velvet pumpkins in the wing back chair. One question though…Are you an interior decorator? If not, you surely could be. Love your style!

  8. How dreamy!! I cannot choose one favourite thing. There is the wing back chair… the gesso frame with the Iron stone display… pumpkins and pears and burlap, oh my!!!
    I luv it all!!!

  9. Oooh la la! I’m reallly enjoying all the fall tours. Your dining room is so very elegant! Love the simplicity of your dining room table display. So very elegant. I am in love with the velvet pumpkins! I also love the beautifully framed ironstone! What a great idea! Thanks again for the wonderful tour. Can’t wait to see what you’ll do next Cindy!

  10. Your home looks just so fresh and beautiful for the fall season, oh be still my heart those luscious velvet pumpkins sitting on your gorgeous wing back chair just make my little heart skip a beat…

  11. Cindy, it’s all beautiful and I love the idea of seasonal decorating so that it’s easy to put up and take down. I’m going to borrow the urn on the table with harvest goodies idea…I have a black urn. And, who would have thought of putting the baby pumpkins inside the framed ironstone pieces? Original idea for sure! Good job.
    I’ve missed you guys! Let me know when you head back this way for a sale.
    Judy

    • Thanks Judy! We think we are going to be able to come down every month, and then it never fails, something happens and we aren’t able to. But hopefully we will get back down there soon! I miss searching for all that treasure and catching up with you!

    • Thank you Melissa! I attached the two pieces of ironstone together using a glue gun. On the back of each platter, I glued a metal picture hanger {the kind that’s a metal circle} with E6000 glue, letting it cure out for 24 hrs. Then I just nailed a picture hood into the plywood backing in the frame, hanging each piece.

We would love to hear from you!
