Fall Decorating

Of all the seasons, I think I enjoy decorating for fall the most.  Many will say it is their favorite season, and I do agree with that, only with it comes the sadness that winter is following close behind.  But fall brings with it so many of my favorite things, like cooler temps, beautiful foliage, and football.
Tweaking the dining room hutch for fall is always fun, especially since my living and dining rooms are already in the warm colors that lend themselves perfectly to colorful leaves and goards.
The dining room is so small and the hutch so large that it takes up an entire wall, but it's spaciousness also allows me to create a variety of vignettes on it's three shelves.
While visiting Yvonne last week over at Stone Gable, she was demonstrating how to make a fall arrangement with mums, which you can see here.  She so inspired me that I had to go out and make an arrangement of my own.  Here is a picture of her arrangement in which she used live mums.

I had intended to use live mums, but decided in the end to use silk flowers instead so I could use it year after year and not have to remember to water it.  Here is my version, which sits on my dining room table.

It was an inexpensive arrangement for me since I had  everything except the silk mums and it brightened up the table just perfectly.  Be sure to stop over at Yvonne's for a full explanation of how she made hers.

I love the arrangement! All the little twirly sticks are really cool and lend such interest to the look of it. You are a talented lady, Cindy.

AND you make me want a hutch! Can't believe I don't have one. Fall is a wonderful time for decorating. Summer would have to be my favorite but this year I didn't really decorate for it. Maybe Autumn will leave me feeling more inspired over the next couple weeks. Maybe ...

Hi Dear Friend who has the most awesomely decorated fall hutch in blog land!

I still have spring nests and birds- I have been so lazy in decorating my home these past months. But fall chill has arrived and I am hoping to get my fall things out and play house soon!
