Fall Inspiration

I'm feeling very Fall these days and I love walking through my house and seeing my table set with a beautiful Fall vignette. I took this photo in a lovely little shop in Ohio, but this scape could easily duplicated in your own home with some very simple items. I liked this table runner so much that I bought it right off the table! I plan on draping it sideways, across my own table, exactly as was done here. A strand of Fall leaves from Michael's, a few accessories from Homegoods, and this glass vase and flameless candle from Target, and you're set. The pheasant feathers add a nice finishing touch! 

Love this table runner!

I just had this Tazo Chai Pumpkin Tea at a Bible study luncheon. It was amazing! It can be purchased at Starbucks. If you can imagine the taste of a fresh slice of pumpkin pie, you can imagine the taste of this tea. With a little organic sugar, it felt like I was having dessert! I'm planning on just boiling up a few of the bags to scent my house. It's truly heavenly!

Here's a pic from the floral case at Bristol Farms. I adore these little bouquets in Mason Jars. This would also be a super-simple little DIY with Trader Joe's or grocery store flowers. Take the tin cap off the Mason Jar, add your flowers and some raffia and you've got a gorgeous bouquet to keep or giveaway.

Anthropologie Pumpkin Souffle Candle

I'm feeling a little Fall, y'all. Today, in Cali it's actually a little overcast and cooler and for the first time I feel like putting on a sweater and lighting a candle. This beautiful gold and white number from anthropologie.com should do nicely!

This has the neutral feeling I like in my decor and smells absolutely amazing. It actually makes me want to bake! Thank goodness this pumpkin soufflĂ©
 doesn't come with calories!

Here are few more images to get you inspired for your own Fall decor.

Creamy white is always nice!

Gold Dipped Pumpkin

I love this simple and elegant idea for decorating my pumpkins this year. This DIY from Chatelaine.com is easy to accomplish and is a great modern take on the traditional.

Begin by spray painting your pumpkin all white. Allow to dry and dip the bottom in a container filled with gold paint. Be sure your container is wide enough for the base of your pumpkin.  Deep deeper in some areas if you want this asymmetrical look. Set on an empty egg carton to dry. Touch up the bottom if necessary.  Super simple! 
 I'd like to see this mixed with some gourds and small pumpkins painted either all gold, all white or a mix of both. This could be a stunning, yet simple centerpiece for your Fall table.

Burberry Monogrammed Poncho

Does it get any better than this? Burberry with a monogram...I die! As Rachel Zoe would say, "This is bananas!" I am absolutely, truly, madly, and deeply in love with this monogrammed poncho from Burberry!

A pricey piece at @ $1300, but I think I could justify it being a "forever" piece, if it wasn't sold out all over the country!! I need this in my closet now! Oh so sad that it's not available.
