Changing Things Up for Fall

 Things have been very busy this Fall, in a very good way! I am working hard with clients who are wonderful, and I will have lots to report on that front in weeks to come!

But it was time to take a little break last night, and my daughter and I had some fun arranging some little pumpkins and gourds on our front room table. The light was not the best, but you get the idea. A few wicker bottles, ghostly white pumpkins, and an antler or two, with the best pumpkin taking pride of place under a glass cloche.
I had picked up the pumpkins while grocery shopping, but when I saw Grant Gibson's front stoop display HERE, I realized I have to stop and smell the corn husks.....that is, take a bit of a break from the weekend work hours and head over to one of the many local pumpkin patches with the family to get some bigger pumpkins!

After all, Fall is my favorite season...it is time to enjoy it!

 Are you decorating for Fall?

What a beautiful setting - you really have an eye! I've never seen a glassed pumpkin before, but it's a great idea, especially in the white - more sculptural.

P.S. I'm hosting a give away of Marc Jacobs jewelry - I hope you'll come by! http://gizmodo.com/5668602/people-spend-927-million-hours-per-month-playing-facebook-games

Oh yes, I am decorating for fall. The front garden is full of cinderella pumpkins, white baby boos are scattered around inside, and a stuffed black owl is on the piano. Fake one, of course.

Love that little pumpkin under the dome. I read another blog where the decorator was only doing white and green pumpkins and gourds. That sounds nice too. btw, I just love the trunk beneath your console table. How pretty!!

I covered my dining room table today! Waiting for the weather to cooperate to snap a few photos. Your display looks so good!

Love your table - and your Grant Gibson inspiration. I'm not doing much this year in terms on fall decorating, although my daughter is dying to do a spooky Halloween yard - we'll see...

What a great vignette Katie! Love the wicker bottles with the antlers, pumpkins and gourds.

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.

Cheers,
