Thinking Fall

 Are you thinking fall yet? I have been for a while now. I'm not decorating just yet, but I am starting to plan for it. I wanted to share some photos from last year. Some of them are of my house and others are items that I made and sold. Here is my fall mantle...I loved having the lanterns up there...they gave such a warm glow.


 
 
 
My dining room table...
I used a cage in the middle and layered peas, corn and pinecones in the vases with a candle in the middle.
 

 
My kitchen island...I layered beans, corn and peas and added silk flowers, berries and sticks down through the middle of the layers.
 
The sofa table...
 
Below are a few of the items I made and sold...
 


 







 I hope you got some ideas for your fall decorating! I'm so ready for cooler weather!

Kristen, your fall decor is always so pretty! Love the items that you made to sell, as well! Your florals are just so beautiful!

Love your dining room birdcage centerpiece! Is that all one piece or is the birdcage sitting on top of the pedestal? Do you mind me asking where you purchased it? Also, would you make the wreath as a custom item? Thanks for any info you can add - it's a great look :)

Kristen, I love all of your fall decor. You're so talented. Would you mind telling me where you purchased the curtains? I've looked all over and can't find anything like it.

All of your creations are gorgeous! Can you put together a tutorial for your lantern swags and some of your flower arrangements?
