Happy September, sweet friends! I hope that you had a wonderful Labor Day holiday weekend! Can you believe that summer is winding down, and autumn is right around the corner? A lot of you marked the end of summer with Labor Day, but in my part of the country we still have several summer days left with warm temperatures. The question often arises…how do I decorate in those weeks leading up to fall? If you live in an area as I do, you probably have several more warm days ahead. Although I am dreaming of autumn, I’m just not ready to decorate with pumpkins and fall foliage. Therefore, today’s topic is how to gradually incorporate a little fall into your decor….just enough to get you ready to greet the upcoming change in seasons.
This week, I am joining a wonderful group of blogging friends for a “Transitioning From Summer to Fall” Blog Hop. Links to all of the participants can be found at the bottom of this post. A special thanks goes out to our very talented and dear friend Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home for organizing this fun event. If you are visiting from Thistle Key Lane, welcome! I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit.
When I think of slowly transitioning to autumn, the shorter days and cooler mornings seem to inspire me.
The perfect way to bring a little warmth and early fall style to your home is to create a coffee table vignette.
A mirrored tray and a few of your favorite items are a wonderful place to begin.
Coral roses are my favorite and what a perfect rich color to compliment the transition from summer to fall.
With the days getting shorter…candelight is a wonderful addition to your vignette. It adds a warm touch with its soft glow of light.
A pretty plate in warmer tones adds another wonderful element to your display. I chose one of my Imari plates to do the trick, and I adore the way the colors tie back to the coral roses.
For another touch of early fall….what could be better than apples. They are plentiful this time of year and add a nice natural element when added to this Flow Blue covered dish.
I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit. I hope that I have given you a little inspiration for incorporating a little warmth and early fall into your home. Next up on the tour is The Red Painted Cottage. Have a most blessed and happy day, dear friends!!!
