Fall in the Kitchen – Janette

Fall in the kitchen is the last tour for me this fall.  Last week I showed you the foyer and the great room.  The most important room in our home is the kitchen.  It’s where I love spending time because it is open to the great room.  I can be doing my cooking thing in the kitchen yet be a part of all that is going on in the adjoining room.  As I mentioned before, I like to use what I have, and so the only thing new that I bought for this room was a yummy fall candle and some candy corn.  That’s it.  And we are enjoying the candy corn, by the way.

Vintage poster in the kitchen - The 2 Seasons


You saw this view of the kitchen when I showed you my vintage poster purchase.  There was a bowl of apples on the table, but I made a vignette using those apples.  And by the way, after seeing this shot, my daughter-in-law suggested that I paint the bench to match the blue in the poster.

I had another bench there before that was blue, and I really liked the look.  So, I am going to go with Josie’s suggestion.  Now, let’s look at the fall additions.

Here you go.  I am using a feeding pan that I bought at a farm supply store a few years ago to hold real and fake apples.

Beside them is a little broom also purchased at the farm store.  They are on place mats that I put side by side to look like a runner.

You saw them on the blog here .when I showed you how easy it was to turn plain place mats into Frenchy ticking place mats.  I topped them with a wooden cutting board to cover where they meet.  Texture is a good thing for fall centerpieces, and I love the way these wine corks look in the lantern that came from Ikea a few years ago.

I have a trio of pillows on the bench, and this one is such a cutie.  I bought it last year I think at Home Goods.

I added two cutting boards to the rustic shelves and a pumpkin now sits on the stack of white ironstone plates.

Sorry about the quality of this photo, but here’s that candy corn I mentioned.  I added this painting just to bring in more fall colors.

Whoops!  I did buy these fresh dish towels.  I am still using my navy accessories and just working the fall things in with them.

 I love brass and copper touches in the fall.  These bowls really go with the fall vibe.

Here’s another angle.  And that’s a wrap for our fall decorations.  They will be here till late November and then out will come Christmas.  Now is my favorite time of the year, and I want to enjoy every single minute.


Take care.

    I have to re-read this–had to go out to buy several bags of candy corn. Looks great in a jar next to the great Dahlias this fall. But the jar gets emptied too quickly…Not by me, of course.

    The pumpkins started appearing up here in Rhinecliff, NY. Smaller than usual but beautifully shaped. Look good in and out of the house.

      I had to go out and also get some candy corn and let Little Miss give it a try. Then mom suggested mixed with peanuts. Yum!
