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!
I hope you’ve enjoyed our mini Fall tour in the dining room for the “Falling for Fall” blog hop!
Be sure and hop over and visit these amazing ladies and see how they have brought Fall touches into their beautiful homes!
