Happy Fall! It has been a while since I last posted and I apologize but I will be honest life happened. Now it is officially my favorite time of year… Football season. Every year when college football begins I bring out all my Fall décor along with my University of Tennessee flag to hang outside. I love Fall and everything about it. So, I wanted to share with you 4 spots in my home that I accent for each season.
I don’t spend a lot of money on décor (I wish I could but I can’t). I try to stick to a tight budget. The first spot I always decorate is my dining room table. So a few weeks ago I found a great stone pumpkin. I like to describe it as perfectly imperfect. I got it at one of my go-to places, Riverside Franklin. This slouchy pumpkin was only $28! I placed it in my centerpiece on the dining room table. The base of it is a large black rustic metal tray. I have a small cotton wreath that I found last fall and sat the stone pumpkin in the center of it to really make it POP. I got the fun smaller pumpkins at Walmart last year for about a $1 each! They honestly typically have a great variety of sizes and colors of decorative pumpkins for a great price.
Second spot is the coffee table! When decorating don’t forget to highlight your coffee table with some simple seasonal touches! I love my coffee table from OP Jenkins! I wish I could get all my furniture from there! Everything from there is classic, clean and sophisticated. So with this coffee table I try to keep it traditional. It’s an easy table to quickly highlight with few easy seasonal touches. A current stable book on my table is Courtney Whitmore’s newest book- Pizzazzerie: Entertain in Style. Oh how I love looking at this gorgeous book! I also have a simple succulent that I keep there year around and added a cute small white pumpkin, pheasant and a simple antique brass bird that was my Grandmama’s.
Another favorite spot is my entry! It is always a fun spot to change up for EVERY season. On a regular basis in my home I have a candle burning in my entry. Currently, I have Marshmallow Fireside from Bath and Body Works. My entry gets amazing lighting and is such an easy spot to highlight pieces. I typically mix my neutrals with color in this area more than in other spots of my house because the lighting is so perfect.
The fourth and final spot is my kitchen where I feel like I spend 75% of my time preparing food for my family. I always keep a candle in my kitchen as well because simply I love candles… so why not! I do have a piece that is more sentimental than anything for me in my kitchen… my Grandmama’s china punch bowl. I rarely serve punch but I love this antique bowl so I decided to make statement piece for my kitchen buffet table. I added some burlap and moss from True Value for the filler. I topped the filler with cute pumpkins, leaves, and pine cones which were a mix of Walmart and Kirkland’s purchases from a few years ago. It still needed a little something so I added neutral antlers from Pottery Barn. I sat it on top of a wood slice charger from Silver Steer & Company to give it a final touch. This is such an easy way to bring this elegant punch bowl back to life after sitting in my storage closet.
Decorating doesn’t always mean spending tons of money. It can be a matter of looking at things you have and giving them new life. Happy pumpkin season y’all!
