A Fall Vignette

Pin It!
Happy Monday!  Hopefully, everyone had a fabulous weekend, although I know that we all had difficult moments yesterday as many of us watched the 9/11 tributes.  I can't believe it's been 10 years ... our thoughts and prayers will continue to go out to all of the families and friends who lost loved ones on that tragic day.

Back to decorating ... I thought I'd share a Fall vignette that sits on the buffet in our great room.


I loved decorating it with its new AS Old White chalk paint attire. 


Starting on the left ... I raised our lamp up just a smidge by placing it on a small cream pedastal, which now helps to balance the cream in the vignette, as well.  Our initial "B" was on a lamp in the bedroom ... not anymore!  I then added a basket from Michael's, turned it on its side and "spilled" pumpkins, guords, pinecones and leaves from it.


Love all of the different shades of Fall in here:


I bought my handsome Mr. Roo at Pottery Barn last year ... thought he'd be a fun Fall addition to the buffet!


And, over on the right ... my cream fleur-de-lis vase, filled with natural elements, serves as a backdrop to the "must have" lantern.


I had leftover burlap, so I nestled this pretty leaves candle inside.  Love that it's battery operated.  Such a pretty glow ...


Speaking of glow ... how about an evening shot:


I'm sure I'll tweak this a bit more, but here it is for now!  Thanks for stopping by ... I'm off to join these fun parties ... come on along!

All your fall decor is really lookin' good. All the little details really add up to a very festive, fallish vignette. I'm strugglin' to get my fall groove on. I did drag it all out of the attic today. Maybe I'll start diggin' through boxes tomorrow and get on it! Thanks for the inspiration.

I love all the different pieces you used here, Becca! The monogrammed lampshade, the fleur vase {love that} and your cornucopia "spillage". I am itching to get some of my things out, but it's just going to have to wait.

Becca, it looks wonderful. Love how you wrapped the burlap around the battery powered candle. Love those battery operated candles for spots like that. They are great.
Pretty, pretty, pretty!

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Becca, Your vignette looks beautiful!! Everything is just perfect! I have got to get one of those lanterns...it looks great with the candle.

I meant to e-mail you back the other day...I have been getting so sidetracked lately! To answer your question about the decorating, Sherry and I did her house one time and she has done it herself over the last few years. She might ask me to do it this year though. I'm glad you are getting some jobs! Oh and your wreath looks great! I'm sure you will be busy making those. Kristen

Becca, you've done a beautiful job once again. Very simple and elegant. Love the white Roo....thinking of painting one of mine white....guess what Mr. Country said, "WHAT, your crazy, why do you have to paint everything"! I love the added touch of the burlap in the lantern!

You have done a beautiful and amazing job on this vignette. Must say, the closeup of your rooster looks as if he has something to crow about...he's saying look at me & this beautiful place!

Love your vignette. The picture hanging above the mirror is the one I have been hunting. Where did you find it?

Becca said...

Debbie ... thanks so much for your kind comment. I found the print at JCPenney's about a year ago ... might give them a try.
