Fall Vignettes

Today I'm sharing a few of the fall vignettes from around our home. This year I decided to use all natural elements in my fall decor, including real pumpkins, antlers, cotton, corn, pine cones, mums, leaves, and moss.


All of the vignettes came together from items I already had around the house and a fun trip to the local farmers market.  



For our mantel I added an aged concrete urn filled with a magnolia branch and a pumpkin along with a glass cloche filled with tiny, colorful pumpkins on one side. A galvanized bucket filled with a large moss ball and rattan pumpkin sit on the opposite side. 



A sweet corner in our foyer includes a square pine cone wreath that I've reused for years now, my antique door- turned mirror that I repurposed a few years back and one of my newly reupholstered side chairs.


A small setting on our kitchen nook table overlooks the back patio. This has become one of my favorite spots around the new house; since it has a wonderful view with large open windows and plenty of natural sunlight.


For the front porch I kept it simple. I potted burgundy colored mums and used left over magnolia leaves from my Fall Magnolia Wreath to add a little more color to the arrangement.



Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Magnolia Wreath

I love fall along with all of the trees changing colors, the slightly cooler weather, and the thought of wearing boots, sweaters, and scarfs really makes me happy. But it's still in the upper eighties here in Alabama as I decorate for fall. Every year I try to rush the fall decor along with my fall wardrobe. Whatever the temperature may be in your area, you can never have enough seasonal decor. 



Today I'm sharing with you how I made this simple and free magnolia wreath. 

I started out with a large grapevine wreath and just began filling it with magnolia leaves all the way around the wreath- layering in one direction, then I added hot glue where needed. 



Some of the leaves are nicely dried and have that wonderful brown on the backsides, while the majority are luscious shiny and green. The combination of the two colors have a nice contrast for a fall wreath. The wreath really makes a statement hanging in our foyer!
