This is always the first element in a vignette. For a fall vignette let’s use something warm, textural, woody or patina encrusted to put the elements of our vignette in!

I found this great meat crate a couple of years ago and Mod Podged a stylized burlap fabric in the bottom of it. This is my very favorite crate to use for a vignette! Do you have a favorite too!

Because I used a good sized pumpkin, I needed a big container… and the crate was perfect! An oversized vignette demands attention!

This seems pretty obvious! Try to use a couple pretty fall elements in your vignette. Pumpkins, feathers, acorns, bittersweet, leaves, deer sheds, gourds, apples, mums, wheat, pods, branches, Indian corn and nuts are just some of the natural elements you can use!

Three small white vases of bittersweet stand in a row in my vignette!

Fall’s colors are absolutely gorgeous. Saturated colors of leaves, hues of pumpkins and gourds, and the neutrals of bark and acorns and fields. Use these colors! They are spectacular!

If you don’t love bright orange for fall home decor (although orange with blue is amazing!!!!!) then use a soft peachy orange or a dark burnt orange to accent your home this fall.

I was so inspired by the color of this charming Cinderella pumpkin I worked the fall decor in my living room around it! A fall vignette should be filled with fall color!

A fall vignette is all about texture. It’s a season of layered texture!

Burlap and fall are like best friends. It offers such pretty color and texture for fall! Find nubby, fluffy, full textured objects and add them to your vignette! 

There’s a whole lot of texture in my vignette, burlap covered crate bottom, burlap books. corks and twine wrapped candleholders.

Textured objects need a counterpoint in a vignette. Add a couple smooth elements, like a pumpkin! It’s skin is smooth yet interesting!

I also added glass cubes to contain the corks and the twine wrapped candlesticks are glass also.

The best part of vignettes is that you can corral all kinds of objects and if done with care, they can be fabulous together. Make sure to add something personal or something cherished to your vignette. Use what you love and let your personality shine through!

I love the little “S” and “g” type blocks that I found at a Vintage Market. They symbolize StoneGable! Just something personal and fun and great items to tuck into this vignette.

Don’t forget to add some great candles, or mini pumpkins or galvanized metal, or a fun stack of plates. There are so many ways to make a vignette! Take out your “stuff” and get creating!

    1. Hi Sonya, Thanks so much for putting Hospitality Filled Home together!

  1. Lanita Anderson says:

    I love your beautiful fall vignette and the soft fall colors that you incorporated….so pretty and yet so simple! The Cinderella pumpkin is my favorite and certainly shines as the star in this vignette, as well as the room! I love the shape, as well as the beautiful color. Thanks for sharing and for the great tips. I’m working on my fall decor this weekend!
    Happy Friday!

  2. Yvonne,
    I greatly appreciate your “tips” for putting together amazing vignettes, dear friend!!!
    One area I’m striving to improve on is the addition of items with texture.
    Thank you for the invitation to see more amazing homes decorating for my most favorite Season!!!
    Stone Gable is always filled with inspiring decor ideas that I use within my own home!!!

  3. This is so beautiful! Love all of the styling tips! You are the best at it! Thanks so much for being a part! Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle

  4. lovely Fall vignette and inspirations to welcome Autumn. I invite you to share at my Thursday hop ( you can link up through Sat midnight) xo

  5. I’m trying to do better vignetttes and you have the best ideas. Thanks for breaking things down. Love the packing crate idea.

  6. Judy Hubbard says:

    Isn’t Bittersweet poisonous? I have a cat that eats all flowers and foliage!
    Pet owners beware…otherwise, Love the centerpiece idea and have used it in my home!

  7. I just luv your vignettes 🙂
    The pumpkin is such a perfect colour to me. When the boys were little, and I was relatively new to the South, I decorated with all the saturated colours of Fall. I brought the Fall feel of NYC ( still home as it is where we lived when we moved to the US) and Virginia where I lived for a year. But fast forward to now… when I know that Florida is now home… no going back, I decorate in softer palettes. Fall comes softly to North Central Florida . In faded , muted tones.
    And yes, orange goes so well with blue. Go Gators!!!! 😀
    Hugs, Gee

    1. Gee what a beautifully written comment. I wish I could have said it so eloquently!

    1. Hi Leslee! Welcome to the StoneGable family!!! I’m so glad you subscribed!

  9. A lovely vignette with such pretty and softly muted colors.

    Big Texas Hugs,

  10. Hi Yvonne, you really should do this for a living! 😉 You are a natural ~

    I look forward to reading all of your helpful hints and decorating vingette ideas. I just love the way you write your posts as if you are in the room speaking to us individually. You are doing a great job and you inspire me everyday! Happy Fall Y’all!

    Warm Regards,


    1. Carrie, that’s just how I write them. I picture YOU in there with me!!! So thrilled you noticed!

  11. Yvonne, I have become the most faithful of followers! I only discovered your blog a few months ago, but I eagerly await your daily updates. I have learned so much from your thoughtful and useful tips, and I am most thankful for your Sunday devotionals. Today is no exception – what a lovely vignette you created! Thank you for inspiring me to enjoy my home and to find new beauty in my treasures.

    Happy Fall!

    1. Hi Alyson! Welcome to the StoneGable family!!! So glad we found eachother! Thanks for subscribing to my daily emails!

  12. Marcia Lauricella says:

    This vignette got me in a lot of trouble. I studied it on your Home Tour. I decided, after a 25 year break, we needed a coffee table. Two days and 3 table/benches later, I think I ordered the appropriate table. We will see when the order comes in. My hubby will kill me if I don’t like this one! I will need additional pictures of vignettes to keep my new purchase up to date! Thank you.

  13. Joanne B. says:

    lovely vignettes, one after the other! Thanks for the great ideas. Perfect for bringing some fall into the house. I live in South Florida so fall comes very slowly here! We are waiting (impatiently I might add) for that first cool front when the humidity breaks and I can turn off the A/C and open the windows. It”ll still be 80, but he humidity makes a BIG difference. I LIVE for this! That’s when fall comes home in OUR house!

  14. Lorri Rauscher says:

    HI Yvonne,
    I look forward to all your blogs. I am a willing student….lol…I enjoy reading your tips and then following through with my decorating.
    Keep them coming!!!!!

  15. Hi Yvonne: what a lovely vignette – as always! While I love wearing orange, it doesn’t really go with my decor so I paint Dollar store (read: cheap!!) pumpkins a faded blue then rub brown paint on to “dirty them up” a bit and while I LOVE bittersweet, I look for green berries and such. The way real cork is harvested from the trees, has always fascinated me; I’ve collected corks for years & store them in a large glass container. Re my Fall color substitution, Yvonne, it got me thinking about you: how about if you someday do a vignette in two different colors (side by side) so it’ll show ladies what they can use as substitution? Not everyone has your talent! Not only could it show how to substitute color but perhaps, you could show how you substitute different items too. By the way, I passed your blog name onto a certain shop owner here in my town and I bet, if she isn’t terribly busy this morning, she’ll be checking you out! Her store carries lots of fabulous items and leans toward the “farmhouse” look. Thank you once again for sharing your talents!

  16. Bernadette says:

    I love the corks in the little glass votive holders!! Thanks for the ideas!!

  17. Karen Cadden says:

    I finally found the printed burlap with type writer keys! I love the look and cant wait to use it. Thank you for your inspirations and encouragement to create a beautiful space in our homes. One that will show others how much we care.

  18. Thank you for the fall vignette ideas! I can’t wait for the cooler fall weather!

  19. Vignettes are super fun

  20. Your vignette is beautiful! I’ve been trying to decorate more like this.

  21. Valerie Tingley says:

    I can’t wait to try these tips in my living room and family room!

  22. Linda Slayton says:

    I love all your ideas! I have incorporated so many of them into my home. Thanks!

  23. Looking at these wonderful displays for autumn makes me love that time of the year all the more, Indian summer is my most favorite time of the year, the colors changing & the smell of falling leaves, the best smell in the world ??

  24. I love your fall centerpieces! I cannot wait to integrate some of your ideas into my home! I love the white vases with the bitters, so beautiful. 🙂

  25. Thank you Yvonne for thr beautiful fall inspiration! It’s cooling down here on the left coast. Tree tips are turning into fall glory! I know it’s still warm there…so a special thanks for inspiring us!

  26. Thanks Yvonne for the beautiful tutorial! You really are quite an inspiration. I’ve been doing what I call tablescapes for years . Who knew they really had a name!!!! I love vignettes! They are small, portable, and can easily be swapped out for a totally different look!!!

  27. Love your vignettes. I copy them every season and my friends always think I am so creative, but I do give you credit. So glad I found your blog.

    1. Mary Kay! Don’t give me credit. Enjoy the bragging rights… you created it! It will be our little secret!

  28. I like this , its pretty. I can’t believe it’s Fall. 🙂

  29. Sharon Minzey says:

    It started looking like Fall very early around my house! Thanks for all the terrific ideas! I love to read everything you have to say!

  30. LOVE so many of your ideas! Also saw you have podcasts! Waiting for fall in Florida.

  31. Thanks for the tips…today I start saving my corks!

  32. Vanessa Richardson says:

    Hi Yvonne!
    Love,love,love your taste in decor for your home both inside and out!I am SO glad that we are kindred sisters. It is lovely so see your beautiful home and know that you love the Lord as well!Fall is my favorite time of year and all of your fall decorations look just gorgeous! Blessings to you!

  33. I love creating vignettes too. I think there is more to then most people think. The problem I have is corralling all the various candle holders, ceramic pieces, etc. and storing them in a way to find them easily for use. How do you store your collections and generic pieces for your home?

    1. Hi Virginia, I have a basement with rolling shelves placed to look like aisles in a store. I store all my decor according to like things. All candlesticks together, all trays together, all pumpkins together etc.
