If I'm not careful, September will be over, and I'll be behind in sharing a few of my "First Fall" vignettes and decorating. I like to spread Fall out as long as I can, so I have lots of different layers and stages. Can you believe how fast this month is going by? I'd been putting off decorating the coffee table, because I wanted to do something "different", and I just hadn't figured out what that was going to be...
I really like to leave this weathered gray tray here on the tabletop. I don't want to scratch up the finish on my chalk painted coffee table and end tables, so I keep a runner or burlap fabric piece underneath. It's easy for me to be lazy and leave all the elements here without being very creative. I've been waiting for my pumpkin and mum stand to open, but they're behind schedule this year, so a grapevine pumpkin is standing in until I can find a white one for the urn.
I have a few demi-johns and old wrapped wine bottles downstairs,
so they're here in the living room for now,
giving the urn some "balance" on the tray.
I found this herringbone tweed pumpkin last week in Ozark at Harrison House.
He's kind of hunky and masculine looking...
I just love all the wonderful textures that can be used in Fall.
I'm so excited to be included in Brenda's 2015 Blogger Fall Tour, that starts next Tuesday and runs till Friday. I'll be sharing my Home Tour on Thursday, so be sure and catch some great Fall Inspiration next week with 28 Bloggers.
