The Kitchen Is Ready For Fall!

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! Our weather has been really nice, still a little warm though, but we did get some good rain today. I hope it's nice wherever you are!


It's time for my fall kitchen tour! I don't have a huge kitchen, so it won't take too long...lol. However, I did take alot of pictures this evening.


As you can see Mr. golden roo is back on the island in a new reworked arrangement. I really don't know how many arrangements he has posed in, but it's alot! lol...





A closeup of Mr. Roo! Alot of you have asked about him and have wanted to buy him in an arrangement. He and his mate belonged to my cousin and are very dear to me. Unfortunately, I have not seen anymore like this pair.


He is keeping an eye on his mate! lol...


The pumpkin plate came from Hobby Lobby and I made the wheat arrangement.


Love this little metal pumpkin candle holder from Pier 1 Imports!


Love all the fall colors in these pumpkins!


I took out the black fruit canisters and brought back the gold ones! I added a little brown gel stain to them. I like the way it looks in the designs...and I almost sold these! Glad I didn't!


I made the "Fall is in the Air" frame and found the cute scarecrow at Pier 1 Imports.


Here is a view of one side of the kitchen...


And here is the other side...Sassy wanted to get in the picture!

Here is the counter by the fridge...we still love our Keurig!


I showed you this birdcage a few weeks ago...


I have been looking for a cute mug holder and found this one at Pier 1. I just love that place! The top is a rolling pin and there is a fork and spoon in the middle, you can't see them very well. I bought the mugs at Wal-mart for $1.50 each.


Here is a view from the kitchen table...

I made the pumpkin arrangement. I fell in love with that metal pumpkin at the Cracker Barrel and decided to use it in an arrangement.


A view into the living room...


Look at the sunset outside! Oh, and I am looking for some softer golden globes for my light fixtures. I have never liked the white ones and they are way to bright in my pictures. Most of the time I just have to turn them off.



Closeup of that pretty pumpkin...

The pumpkin napkin rings came from Hobby Lobby this year, I had everything else. I made the leaf place mats last year I believe. All they are is a round piece of fabric with silk leaves glued around the edges. Easy!


Now for the tops of the cabinets...Love my metal roo from where else...Hobby Lobby!

These metal pumpkins came from Kirklands...they have some great looking fall stuff too!

I filled the iron bicycle with pumpkins.


I made myself another moss ball! the tray is from...HL....


I made the sunflower arrangement...love the color it adds.

I added ribbon, leaves and a leaf embellishment to this candle.

One of my scarecrow tassels! I still have some left...let me know if you would like one.




I hope you enjoyed my fall kitchen tour! Something special is going on in here next week...I hope to tell you about it soon. Have a great rest of the week!!

We have been having beautiful fall weather here.
Your kitchen is gorgeous all dressed up for fall! Every detail is fabulous. I love your arrangements. Will you be added anymore rooster arrangements to your shop? I had my eye on the last one but by the time payday came it was sold.
I sure wish we had a Pier one closer. The closest one is about an hour so its not too bad of a drive.

Kristen- Your kitchen is just lovely. It is so warm and homey looking and all dressed up for Fall. You have acquired some really great pieces over time. LOVE that rooster too. I can see why everyone wants him. He just drives all the chicks crazy, doesn't he?;>)

Hope you have a wonderful week..oh by the way- I LOVE your island. The color is just beautiful! xo Diana

L said...

I love your kitchen all decorated for autumn. The pumpkins and scarecrows are so cute. Love the arrangements you made, too. You do the best arrangements. I have that same metal rooster from HL!
Pier 1 has some pretty fall decor items right now. Oh..I like how you added some glaze to the white canisters. Good thing you kept them!
thanks for sharing your beautiful fall decorated kitchen.

Kristen, I love your kitchen. Its so inviting. I am going to check out your etsy shop.

debbies said...

Last year I bought a fall flower arrangement from you & proudly have it displayed in my kitchen. Anyone even thinking about purchasing one from you should grab them. Beautiful kitchen and love the tablescape you made.

Becca said...

Looks beautiful, Kristen !! You've thought of everything in your fabulously festive Fall kitchen. From the rooster floral, to the scattered pumpkins, to the candlelight ... perfect !! All of your vignettes are awesome ... and, I can't wait for you to reveal the news !! *wink wink* xoxo

Ramblings of a Southern Girl ~ Rhonda G said...

Love all of your arrangements! And your kitchen is so pretty decked out in fall! My favorite arrangement is the one on the kitchen table with the super cute pumpkin in the middle! And the candles beside the rooster arrangement are "fallicious!!!" :)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It all looks so pretty, Kristen! I love how Mr. Roo and his mate work so well with the Fall colors you have going on in your kitchen. I love all your little touches!

Savvy Seasons said...

Kristen,
Your kitchen is such a treasure, full of so many wonderful things. Your fall arrangements are fabulous. The glow of your kitchen with the sun setting is absolutely lovely. I love how you decorated the top of you kitchen cabinets for Fall, I did the same thing. The one thing I love most about your home is the color palette, it is warm, elegant, yet cozy....just the way a home should be. Thanks for sharing! XO ~Liz

Carrie @ Dittle Dattle said...

Your kitchen is so lovely decorated for the fall! I love how you have the top of the cabinets decorated, something that I personally struggle with. I am so glad you keep those canisters, because they are gorgeous!

Marianne said...

Hi Kristen, your kitchen looks so pretty decorated for fall. You make the prettiest arrangements. And I just love all of your roosters. Your home is just so warm and inviting.

I just love your Fall decorations! The colors in your home go with all of the Fall decor so well! Really pretty.

Judi said...

Kristen your kitchen looks amazing decorated for fall!

Gypsy Heart said...

Oh, I would kill for a kitchen like that! I don't have any space at all and not even enough room for the necessities, much less the pretties. Everything looks gorgeous ~ as usual! Wish you were closer to add a little fluff here ~ :-)

Thanks for sharing!
