Autumn Days.

My favorite season is upon us. I have decked my home with warm Autumn accents and now all I need is the bitter cold breeze and the leaves to fall off the trees. And...a big pot of stew with 3 large cornbread muffins. Yum.

This is the first year that I haven't decorated with pumpkins. Usually, I have them everywhere, but this year I went with berry tones and birds. And I love it!

Would you like to see my home with the spurts of Fall throughout? Sure ya do (because who doesn't love spying in at other people's homes). Let's go!

First off, when it comes to Fall, there are two absolute "musts" for my home.

Max77

A candy dish filled with gold, red and brown chocolates...

Max78

And my favorite candle OF all time. Votivo Red Currant. Pure fantasticalism.

Max80

It is not Fall without these things.

Next off, we have my coffee table. This year, I purchased a lovely acorn-ish shaped apothecary jar and filled it with sparkly acorns. Love it!

Max89

(Ignore the Boppy in the background. I am a Mommy, ya know.)

Max91

On my other end table, I put some mini pumpkin/cinnamon sticks potpourri in a small vase from Pottery Barn.

Max109

Is it weird that we've been married over 4 years and still have PB giftcards from our wedding? I'm telling you, we received a TON!

Max112

Then I found this little diddy, and loved it.

Max110

Partly because of what it says on the inside:

Max111

I just love that!

Alrighty, now let's move on to the kitchen.

Max86

This is my table. For the centerpiece, I put reindeer moss in the bottom of the vase with big pomegranates spewing out everywhere!

Max82

And I'm in love with these plates. I love birds.

Max83

Max85

I think it's a warm and inviting table. Come on over! :)

Max88

Well, that is Fall at my house. Let's see what it looks like where you live!

  1. Oh. My. Gosh. WHERE did you get those plates?!?!

    We happen upon a new similarity - I LOVE birds too! I have them all over my living room and kitchen. I'm mildly frightened that people think of me as a creepy bird lady.

    I planned on blogging about my decor last week, but my comp was being weird and not letting me upload the pics :( So if I blog my decorations, be assured I'm not just copying :)

    Everything looks beautiful!

  4. Your house looks fantastic!

    Mine, on the other hand...

    But, one thing I've recently found that I love (ok two things) ...

    Air Wicks Warming Oil in Apple Cinnamon Medley - smells like Christmas!

    and

    Febreeze Spray in Apple Mango Tango - Love it!

  6. You have inspired me. I have had an empty dining room table for YEARS because I can't figure out what to put in the middle of it. I want a centerpiece, but I don't want it to be flowers. I LOVE your centerpiece! I'm copying you for Thanksgiving and I'm telling my family that I came up with it on my own.

    Just wanted you to know...

  7. Beautiful, elegant and glamorous as always Whitney!!! I love everything - especially the centerpiece on your dining room table. Very lovely! I'm still trying to get fall together at my house and have to admit, I'm a pumpkin nut this time of year! Love everything you did!

  8. Love the table centerpiece. Where did you get the pom branches?

  9. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! So you NEED another blog to showcase your decorating skills! I loved the way you set up Levi's room and now this! I'm not a mom, I'm not married yet but I've been so afraid that when I am I'm going to turn into everything I despise. A woman who has no taste and all she has left is that she's a mom. I see this all the time. Well seeing this, you've made me feel so much better. Please do more posts like this,you and I have very similar taste. Maybe you can include where you've purchased some of these things!

    Great post!

  20. I love the acorn filled with little acorns. Super-cute!!

    And can I just say that I love how all of my friends know EXACTLY which scents they love for fall? It's amazing. I don't think that any of my friends choose the same scent. They're all similar, but different. Different brands, different scents ... but all very fall-ish! That candle sounds amazing!!
