Decorating for Fall

Pin It Now!

I finally started changing out the summery decor in my home for my fall and winter look. The seashells have been put away...which was so hard for me to do, and the pastel plates have been replaced with my blue and white transferware turkey dishes.

I prefer the other look but change is always nice!


This is a nice change but I'm really looking forward to Christmas decorating!!!

I know what you mean. In the UK its as if summer never really got going so to see it 'put away' hmmm. That said I love autumn/fall and the cosy dark nights..... anyway, like you say change is good!

Oh I love it when you do blue & white. You do it better than anybody I know. Love how you have added the spark of fall accents. I could stare at this for evah!

Sue said...

I know what you mean Cindy.The colors in my home definitely lean more toward white, blues and the summery 'beachy' look. I just can't bring myself to decorate with oranges & browns. I do nothing until after Thanksgiving, and then I bring out my Christmas decorations which are....hmmmm white & aqua! Even have a white tree with blown glass seashells, starfish, etc. Your house looks lovely though. No matter what you do, it always is gorgeous. Sue

I like the fall weather and decorations, but I LOVE CHRISTMAS and all that it brings.

Karin said...

I still LOVE your turkey dishes ~ I remember when you found them last Thanksgiving!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I'm with you ~ Chrismtas is my favorite time of year to decorate. I love the color on your hutch from the candy in the apothecary jar.

Cindy said...

Oh Cindy, Your place looks wonderful. Do you feel like it is fall? Here in the great white North it has felt like fall for a month. I think it would be difficult to decorate for a cooler season when it is still so nice and warm. We don't have that problem here! LOL I love the silver tray chalk board stuck in there amongst the china and chrystal. Everything looks so beautiful! Hugs, Cindy S.

Sharon said...

I love your turkey dishes. Welcome to Fall!!!

Changing for fall makes it even sweeter when you get to change back to your favorite look in spring. I wish I could keep Christmas all year!!

Sammy Girl said...

Hi, Cindy!
Silly question .... what is the "stuff" in the white tiered piece? Having a hard time identifying everything, but it looks WONDERFUL!
Hugs!
Betty:)

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Sammy girl (Betty), it's just a mixture of stuff that came in a cellophane bag. It's like a potpourri type of thing. I'm not sure what some of the stuff is either. There are different types of pods in there and some other stuff.

Linda said...

I love your chalkboard tray Cindy...I need to make one and do what you do with yours!! love it..Linda ;)

susan said...

Changing things around is like a free makeover! I love the blue and white dishes..and there's that tiered server I love :)

Gee said...

Hi Cindy,

Love your turkey dishes. The new decor looks great.

Linda's Blue Gate said...

So glad you and Lauren are feeling better.... I can not believe you both had that swine flu..... how scary is that...
I LOVE your apothecary jar ..... so pretty..
Hugs
Linda

pogonip @ meadowsweet cottage said...

Me too, Cindy! The only thing that made me change to mellow autumn colors without kicking and screaming was our thirty degree temperature drop which made me feel like curling up with a good book and a cup of green tea while enjoying a warm fire. This summer was sooo wonderful that I hate to see it end.

Esther Sunday said...

Blue & white Christmas again? I hope? :)

Chatelaine said...

It all looks so pretty! I especially like the turkey dish and the chalkboard.

Elsie said...

Very nice Cindy,I love your turkey
dishes. I also remember when you
found them. I went to our store
here and of course they didn't
have any. I love the way your hutch and table look so "fallie"
if thats a word.:D

Linda Q said...

Looking good around there for Fall Cindy! I love to look at your place no matter what season!!

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

All of the orange looks so pretty against the white...such a nice contrast.

But you are right about Christmas. I'm sure that will knock our socks off!

June said...

It certainly is beautiful Cindy. Look over there!!!! You didn't see that, but I just helped myself to your candy jar.
I usually go from my regular decor right to Christmas decor, not because I don't like Fall, but because I'm just plain lazy.
But I love looking at yours.
Hugs,
June

Your fall decor is so pretty! I know you have probably featured it before, but I love the silver platter chalkboard. Very clever and a good blend between traditional and modern decorating. I need to do that too!
