Warm and Even Warmer Now



I like Fall colors because they are warm. So many people in Blogland started decorating for Fall and honestly, I was getting jealous so I decided to follow their footsteps. We called Mitch to come over and help me take down my bins containing my Fall decorations and he came on Friday.

This weekend, I decided to change the vignettes on the dining tables and introduce the coming season.


I started with spreading an April Cornell tablecloth with fall colors.


I bought these large chicken wire cloche from One Kings Lane on clearance. I thought for $29 for the pair, they were a good buy not even knowing what I would do with them at the time because they are really huge. For a while, they just sat in the garage. The bigger one is about 16 inches tall and about 13 inches in diameter.


The woven acorn was on clearance at Pottery Barn for $6.99. It's also big, around 12 inches long. It was so bulky that I did not know what to use it for when it arrived, so I just shoved it in the very top shelf of the laundry room cabinet. I took it down after I set the 2 cloches together. I knew it would be perfect to put in front of them.




And here is my new Fall vignette.





I love how the sun shines through the middle of the acorn.




















After I was done on the formal dining table, I changed the vignette on the small kitchen nook table too.





I started with a matching April Cornell table runner.


I took a red maple faux tree from the bin and added that.









I got these set of 3 whimsical pumpkins from an antique shop downtown a year or 2 ago and I thought their expressions look so cute. I think they are made out of pottery clay, I cannot remember how much I bought them for but I remember them to be really cheap, maybe $3.50 and no more than $6.



Isn't that a cute face?

I am so glad I got these 2 done. I am not sure how much more I can do because my series of trips to Florida starts this month. I will however, try to do some posts in advance.


Thank you so much for stoppng by and I appreciate our hostesses for all their work in hosting these fun memes.
