Modern & Fresh Fall Home Tour

I am so so happy to be a part of Lindsay & Kristen’s Modern & Fresh Fall Series and today I get to share the Fall touches we have made to our house.  But before I get to that, I just wanted to say that Kelly from Eclectically Vintage  is featuring our home over at her place today.  I have always been such a fan of Kelly’s and she took it to a whole new level when she posted about her Sunroom.   Not only did she take a room with three walls of windows which can be challenging enough, but she created a space that functions in 3 totally different ways.  It’s absolutely brilliant, colorful, fun, and so her.  I’m totally honored to be over there today.  So, now on to Fall!

Fall is a special time for us…not only is it my absolute favorite season, but it is also a time that we celebrate a couple of special occasions.  The first being my hubby’s birthday and the second is our wedding anniversary and so I decided that we should have a festive cheery table setting to make this time even more special.

I have these beautiful serving pieces that were passed down to me from my grandmother and they inspired the color scheme this year.  I really tried to use items that I already had on hand.  Everything on our table was either passed down to me, thrifted or bought at the dollar store.  All I had to do was add in some fresh flowers from the fresh bouquet section of our grocery store and arrange them in a silver champagne bucket…I love the look of mixing metals.

I added in small touches with feathers, cotton stalks, textured ribbon and leather pieces that can be used a million different ways.  The scrap leather pieces are sold in bags at most any craft store and I love using them as little accents here and there.

As I was pulling our Fall decor out of our storage closet, I came across a box that contained pieces of my grandmother’s veil that my mom had given to me and my siblings awhile back.

The lace is absolutely gorgeous and I decided it had sat in a box long enough.

I simply wrapped it around some clear glass vases using some double sided tape and I am loving the texture and warmth it brings to this little area of our living room.

I also went crazy with the heirloom pumpkins and gourds.  The boys and I love going to the pumpkin patch and I swear we come home with more and more every year.

I filled our dough bowl full and put all the extras outside our front door because nothing says Fall to me like pumpkins all lined up in front of your house.
