For the most part, I usually only decorate for Halloween outside. Well, until last year, that is. It all started when I purchased the cutest Halloween plates on sale from Williams Sonoma! I fell in love with them, and used them in last year’s Halloween tablescape. And because that was so fun, and also because I wanted to use them again, I decided to do another one this year.
I absolutely adore fall, it’s by far my favorite season. And one of the things I look forward to most is pumpkin everything!
To say I love anything pumpkin would probably be an understatement. I love pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, but maybe most of all, I love pumpkin scented candles! I start burning them in September and would probably burn them all year if it weren’t for the fact that Christmas comes around!
Welcome to my fall home tour, and if you have come over from Fox Hollow Cottage, hello and welcome! I am so excited to be participating in the Autumn’s in the Air blog hop with eleven of my very favorite bloggers. Each of us is featuring some of our favorite things for Fall. Some are doing tablescapes, some are doing a room or two, and some a full fall home tour. I think you will see some very beautiful and inspiring spaces as these girls are good!
The other day I realized I had been so busy all summer that I hadn’t done a tablescape since July 4th! I do usually like to toy around with tablescape ideas at least a couple of times a month. Not only for fun, but also so that when we entertain I have something prepared beforehand. I adore doing them; it’s kind of a fun, creative outlet for me. If you love them too, be sure to check out my free e-book with twelve pretty and easy tables – one for each month of the year!
I absolutely adore white pumpkins! I’m sure this comes as no surprise, seeing as how I love white everything! But I am especially smitten with these. I don’t know about you, but they definitely weren’t around when I was growing up. There were plain old orange ones and that was it! And let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of houses where bright orange decor really works 😉
Decorating with cloches is one of my favorite ways of highlighting something special or adding interest to a vignette. So although I’ve spoken of my love for glass cloches before on the blog, I thought it might be time to revisit the subject!
I first saw and fell in love with them years ago in Paris. They are all over the beautiful bakeries in that city. But at that time, I never saw them here in the United States. I’m not sure why they took so long to appear here, but I’m so glad they did!
