Autumn in the Kitchen




Each season calls for its own decor in the home.

It's a blessing  and a privilege to make our homes appealing, according to our own, individual tastes.

In the fall, I like to put different themed cloths on the kitchen table like this one:


Twice a year a company called Primitive Artisans holds an outdoor sale of their merchandise in a Western Massachusetts town.



It's a wildly popular sale. People come in large groups to rummage through open boxes set out in a fenced-in parking lot. 


It's so much fun.  They always have lots of tablecloths, place mats and other items for the home.

And in stores like Target, there are even dish towels with autumn themes. They add to the ambiance of our kitchens!



I found a bunch of faux leaves at a yard sale. They were really cheap but colorful.

I put them into an old-fashioned pitcher  with a thick glass handle. Voila!  Instant table centerpiece! 

It's shown at the very top of this post.

DO YOU ADD FALL DECORATING TOUCHES TO ALL YOUR ROOMS

Beautiful decorations, I love the colours at this time of year. I don't have any decorations, but am doing some artwork instead :) enjoy your weekend!

Isn't there just something so cozy about Fall decor--colorful leaves, beautiful linens, and I bet the aromas coming from your kitchen are wonderful. I'd like to come for tea; Happy Fall, XOXO

Lovely colors you have shared today...I think fall is a favorite for a color theme...better than pink Easter and red/green Christmas....

Yes, I try to bring the seasons into the house - mainly the kitchen, dining room, living room, and family room. We are still waiting to have some colored leaves on the trees around here. I'd love to make that sale in Western Massachusetts some time! There's nothing like a bargain!

I also love to decorate for the seasons and holidays. Fall leaves in your glass pitcher are perfect!

It's a nice idea to change things for different seasons I mainly move the outdoor furniture around, in winter I chase the sun in summer I sit under the trees.
