~Transitioning Into Fall~

Every year, around this time, I get a little itch to start some Fall decorating. However, it's really hard to get in the mood, when the temp is still in the triple digits! Dear Hubby went out to gather some of the veggies from the garden; and it immediately made me think of Fall harvests! The veggies were so pretty that I wanted to create a simple little vignette, on the coffee table.








I placed a lantern in the center of a tray...



Then, I went out back and snipped some fresh greenery to use as a backdrop...



I added a couple of mercury glass votives...



And, my simple little vignette was done!



As Fall approaches, I can simply let the greenery dry out and mix in my Fall accents...pinecones, pumpkins, etc.
Easy, peasy!



Are you getting ready for Fall?

Thanks, so much, for stopping by today!
Happy Decorating!

  1. Beautiful Shenita! I love your lantern as well. I am waiting a bit longer, as we will be hosting my fellow Bible study children's team for an ice cream social in a couple weeks. Right now I am just getting back into a routine after dropping baby girl back off at school.

  2. Looks lovely Shenita. I am burning fall candles and then going out to float in the pool. I'm definitely between seasons right now. We just have to "do" fall, as our weather seldom cooperates!

  3. Fabulous, Shenita! I love the rich pops of color from your harvest ... adding in the ambiance of the candlelight is the icing on the cake! I know you're itching to splash Fall all around your beautiful home! I started yesterday ... just couldn't help it!

  4. So pretty! There's nothing better than natural things. I'm not getting ready for fall exactly. I've bought a couple of things but darn it's hot! This is that strange in between we have here in this state when it should be fall but nobody told Mother Nature. Also, I don't really want this pretty summer to go away just yet. It's beautiful in my yard now and the bounty from your garden looks amazing.

  6. Looks lovely and is such a perfect centerpiece for this time of year, late summer and not quite fall. The veggies really do make one think of harvest and yet the greenery adds a summer feel. Love that lantern too!

  7. Love your pictures, Shenita! I love the lantern and the fresh veggies, grapes and artichokes mixed in. Your pictures and vignettes are always so classy and elegant looking. You have such an eye, not only for decorating, but photography, too! So much talent....

    Can't wait to see what you come up with for Fall....xo, Liz

  8. Inspiration is a lovely, colorful and bountiful thing, and as I always say, it is everywhere. The temps do not speak to fall, but those of us who love this time of year have an ear to the ground and an eye out for rich color, tone and pattern. I've been known to turn the A/C to arctic blast to get that fall feeling. We Southerners know we've got a few more months to go until the temps cooperate with the calendar. Your summer into fall anticipation coffee table is beautiful.

  10. Absolutely, and I'm almost ready to start sharing! And, yes, we are still in triple digits, but I just could not wait any longer! Your coffee table vignette is so pretty Shenita. I'll bet your hubby thought he was going to be eating those veggies he picked....lol!

  16. Easy peasy but BEAUTIFUL! I am antsy to decorate too!!!! You have another advantage to this vignette: now you can eat all that deliciousness!!!

  17. I'm laughing in amazement, because at this very moment, my kitchen island looks very similar, down to the three big pods of okra! My Dad and the Piggly Wiggly grew my veggie harvest. All I have left this time of year is a jalapeño pepper plant.
    Pretty photos!

  18. Love it! You have me wanting to crawl up in the attic and start pulling fall decor out, but I am afraid I would pass out from the heat.....but I will get it done. Have a wonderful day, Shenita!

  23. So funny because I just posted about trying to hold onto summer! I put out three pumpkins and that is all but I do have pumpkins growing in the garden. We have just had rain all August and no swimming, no picnics, no end of summer fun. It has killed me!

  28. I feel exactly the same way, Shenita! For some reason I am feeling the itch to decorate, but I never can because it is still so hot and humid right now. I am usually okay to wait until mid September.

  29. Fall is a lovely time of year to enjoy and decorate. It's so warm and cozy. Love your pretty vignette, you have a way with displaying items. I haven't started decorating for Fall yet. Enjoy the weekend.

  34. You always decorate with such style and beauty Shenita, specially a tablescape as lovely as this.
    I hope your weather is cooling off a little, there.
    I just did changing and tweaking this weekend, but no Fall exactly. I will next month, for sure! Gorgeous Shenita!
    Have a blessed week, my friend.

  39. Hi, Shenita! This is certainly the way to make lemonade out of lemons! That triple digit heat you speak of...we had it up until a few days ago, and it felt nothing like fall around here!!! In fact, I was wondering why on earth they closed the pools after Labor Day because it was still VERY much like summer!!!!! We're enjoying cooler temps right now, but the upper 80s are expected to return mid-week. Sigh! :-( To create a veggie feast for the eyes is a great idea, especially since parts of it can dry and transition so easily! I have to admit, though, those green tomatoes would be rollin' in some cornmeal around here! :-)

    I hope the heat lets up for you soon. Have a wonderful week!
