Autumn's Glory

When decorating for the fall season there is really no rhyme or reason, nothing to overlook.

It really is all in the placement of the elements you find. The beauty of the season can be found on a crisp fall walk or in your own back yard and from the gardens within it. Be sure to keep your eyes open and plan as you pick. The beauty will be in the form, texture and colour of the elements of nature.

For rich browns and deep purples look for : Smoke Bush Leaves, Red & Purple Grapes, Fall Viburnum & Hypericum Berries

  For Your Greens look for: Under-ripe Persimmon, Green Pepper Berries and foliage & Lemon leaves 

 For your Reds look for: Pomegranate, Japanese Maple leaves, Fall Viburnum berries, Ripened Bittersweet

For your Orange tones look for: Maple Leaves of Fall, Bittersweet Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Viburnum (early fall) 

Use these in all different and unique containers for fall like this double hurricane or my my personal favorite some antique silver pitchers from Pottery Barn 

 Attach Small Bundles with twine and hang on wall with old pictures or vintage cards 
Better Homes & Gardens

Stuff Large Glass Hurricanes Like these shown from Pottery Barn and add small berries with stems and leaves to dress table settings.


 Pottery Barn has some beautiful Pieces for Thanksgiving this year. Dress your Thanksgiving Table with Beautiful edged white or cream plates and add these stunning Turkey Plates and lay upon a beautiful linen table cloth. 

Keep the wine chilled with this Gorgeous wooden Trough on your sideboard and float some cranberries on top of the ice. 

This Stunning Foucault's Iron Orb Chandelier from Restoration Hardware would look stunning above any Thanksgiving table 


 And Fabrics.....Oh how a love fabrics. Use these fabrics from Waverly in all the beautiful colours and patterns in forms of Napkins, Pillows & Drapery. They will add warmth to any room or any setting

 Happy Fall Everyone 
and enjoy everything it has to Offer!
