Since I missed October here in Kentucky, I had to find it when we got home from our trip to Europe. That translates to mean that I just put out my fall decorations last week. I am sure those of you who have already finished decorating for Christmas are probably shuddering, but I want to enjoy fall and Thanksgiving first. Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday, and I want to milk it for everything it’s worth.
One of the things I did while putting out the fall colors was make a change in the foyer.
We did have a bench in the foyer, but we decided to move it to another spot in the house, and I’ll be sure to show that new set-up to you soon. We replaced it with a marble-topped dresser that had been in the upstairs hallway.
The morning sun was coming through the windows when I took these photos. To create a nice November vignette, I pulled out a rattan cornucopia and filled it with gourds, pumpkins, and antlers. To add a little surprise, I added a long strand of pearls. I have been using that cluster of wheat for at least 15 years. It just gets stored away nicely at the end of each November.
I love all of the textures and fall colors. There’s even a pine cone stuck away there in the back.
This lamp is really old. My mother had it when I was a little girl, and I think it came from her mother.
My mother made the shade when I was little, and I just painted it black. There is no way that it will get replaced with something new and plush. There’s too much sentimental value there.
The rug from Turkey still works great in here with the colors we love, and……
….the plates still work well, too.
Now that we have this dresser here in the foyer, it will be a great place to put seasonal vignettes.
