Some small pumpkins line the porch
And mums are in the upstairs window box
I'll get a bigger pumpkin or two right before Halloween
to carve into a scary Jack o Lantern!
Inside there's enough "autumn" to make the house
look seasonal -- it's all real so when the time comes
to decorate for Christmas, it will be tossed.
No storage needed!
The dining room table
sports a cut glass pedestal bowl filled with gourds and pumpkins
A bouquet of flowers in a Waterford vase is on an end table in the living room
And the breakfast room table boasts another Waterford vase filled with autumn color
The back garden:
A pot of mums and a pumpkin on the table under the arbor.
Oh, there are fall plants blooming -- mums that have been here a long time,
Montauk daisies, garlic chives and live forevers.
I'm where you are right now, subtle Fall décor and I like it like that. It works for me. Besides there are just the two of us and I think Thanksgiving and Christmas will also just be the two of us because of Covid. We must get use to this. DS had a birthday today, their family went to a restaurant to celebrate. Grand Dad had to tell him that if they did not have outdoor dining GiGi would not be able to come. As it happens one of the girls had been exposed to Covid by one of her classmates. Of course, I couldn't go and I hate it but it is what it is. If we are high risk then we must protect ourselves. Hopefully this too will pass. I still must quarantine but I have high hopes that this will not be too long until we can resume to normal.
Your decorating style is perfect. Nature's beauty makes the best decor. And the bonus of not having to pack it all up for storage afterwards is another plus.
I love your decorations. They are lovely. It's what's called for right now. We are high risk also and are being careful. Our family is good to concider us when they can. But as you say, it is what it is and sometimes we can't go. Happy Halloween.
I love all of your decorations. Looks festive and Autumnal.
We grew up with natural decorations and never decorated as much as we do today. Decorations from the inside consisted of open windows with the picture perfect beauty of the changing leaves and gorgeous colors outside. A few flowers inside. I am doing a little different now the grand girls.
Beatuiful - as always. Thanks for sharing.
You have so many lovely pieces and sets of glassware, dishes, silver, etc. Is there anything you still actively look for or collect?
