Fall in the Dining Room

Good morning and happy fall, dear friends! I hope you are enjoying this first week of autumn. I know I am loving the cooler temperatures. Today, I want to invite you in for a cup of tea and a look around my dining room adorned for the season…my favorite season!

Before, we get into the details of the autumn decor, I want to show you my new curtains. Since we moved in, I have been studying this window trying to decide what I wanted to do with it. Window treatments can often be a very costly proposition. You can imagine my joy when I found these blue toile curtains online at an affordable price. They are made of a very nice fabrication and look like a high end custom made curtain. I am over the moon with joy at how these turned out!

For this years autumn decor, I have tried to use what I have on hand and items from nature. We are still being very cautious and staying close to home as much as possible.

For the centerpiece of my dining table, I chose to use my Spode Blue Italian vase and fill it with autumn berries and pheasant feathers. Mr. Bleu loves to pheasant hunt and always saves the feathers for me. I thought that fall would be the perfect opportunity to put them to good use.

Decoupaged pumpkins that I made several years ago flank the Spode vase. It is such an easy project. All you need is a faux pumpkin, some fabric cut into strips, and Mod-Podge. In fact, I made a few more this week for another project. I love pretty fabrics and have a collection of remnants to choose from.

Faux pumpkins, autumn berries, and pheasant feathers adorn the china hutch. I love using traditional fall colors when decorating for the season.

Thank you, sweet friends, for your visits and gracious comments. I hope that you have a most blessed and beautiful day and weekend ahead! Take care!

They come in several different toile colors. For the price, I am very pleased with the quality. Enjoy your week!

  12. Shannon, I always enjoy your home posts, as we have the similar loves of woods, and blue and white pottery. This is splendid, and really makes me want to begin to Fall decorate next week, when it's supposed to be cooler and raining. Absolutely lovely! Sandi
