~A Bowl Of Fall's Bounty~

Well, with the official first day of Fall just around the corner, the decorating continues! I have this large urn, that I like to move around the house, and change it's contents seasonally. I placed it on the buffet island, between the kitchen and the family room, and filled it with lots of Autumn goodies!


I decided to just throw in a mix of colors and textures!


I found these metallic pumpkins at Michaels. The regular price is $2.99; and, they are 50% off this week!


I added feather balls for texture and height; and threw in a couple of hydrangeas...


Tossed in some pinecones and fall berries...


And my fall bowl was complete!


This was such an easy thing to do; and it adds a lovely fall touch to the kitchen/family room area.


I also got this lovely issue of Southern Lady magazine, in the mail this week...



And also, from Southern Lady, this wonderful special issue of Autumn in the South...



These two magazines are just overflowing with wonderful ideas for Fall!

Well, that's it for today! How's your fall decorating coming along?

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  19. Hi Shenita, I’m loving the big beautiful bowl of fall! Nothing feels more like Autumn than decorating with hydrangeas and pumpkins. I love the sprigs of berries for an extra pop of color you’ve added. I’m enjoying all the fall magazines too. A sure way to get in the mood of the season.
    Have a great week.

    Hugs,
