November is the time to trade out our pumpkins for more transitional designs. I’m bringing in warmer, more nubby and organic elements. This vignette will work until Thanksgiving and can easily be added and edited to become beautiful Christmas decor. My pumpkins go outdoors and fill in the areas of spent mums in my urns and pots. In place of pumpkins I added pinecone and boxwood and lots of burlap.
One of my very favorite places to create a vignette is in my living room! My Cudahy Packing Box has become a fixture on the coffee table.
Here is the fall vignette…
Using some of the same elements and adding just a couple other the fall vignette becomes a transitional one!
The most obvious change was removing the pumpkin and adding an urn of pinecones. Pinecones are warm and textural and work great this time of year!
Raising the urn up on a couple of burlap covered books give the pinecones a little more importance.
It will be easy to add some pretty sprigs of greens to the pinecones at Christmastime.
Out went the rope wrapped glass hurricanes and they were replaced with a little bit of bling! I chose 2 chunky silver candlesticks and creamy candles.
I kept the corks and the block letters. I think they add so so much texture!
I added a boxwood ball in white pottery behind the corks. Boxwood is an “anytime plant” not just for Christmas. I love love love burlap covered books!
How about you? Are you ready to trade your pumpkins for warmer tones and nubbier elements …. and pinecones?
Make sure you stop back next week when I’ll share how to put away one seasons decor and get out another. I have some common sense, great tips for you!
