Are you decorating for fall yet? Despite the weather outside many of us are getting out the pumpkins and pinecones. Even though Mother Nature is not scattering many colorful leaves outside we are arranging them inside! As always, I’m shopping the house and moving things around to decorate for fall. The large wooden tiered tray that I had in the kitchen found a new home this fall. My dining room buffet is just the perfect size to hold a large item like the tray. This fall arrangement is so so easy to put together and I hope you are inspired to create a vertical vignette of your own!
Part of decorating is moving things around here at StoneGable. Using what I have and finding new ways to use them keeps me challenged and creative! I found this pretty white wooden tiered stand at a local shop in Lancaster. I’ve found a couple stand I love and have included them in “get the look” at the bottom of the page.
White pumpkins are not yet at our local farmstands so I’m using faux pumpkins that I have painted white until I can find the real thing! If you would like to see a tutorial for painting pumpkins white click HERE. I think it will be another week until white pumpkins will start popping up everywhere! Once they do I’ll add real and faux pumpkins together in my fall decor!
For this vertical fall vignette I used white cups and bowls and ruffled plates and small pitchers. Lots of creamy white! I added a couple of handfuls of silver flatware and fall elements!
I have not decorated with my Mikasa Italian Countryside for a long time. I say they are the workhorses of my kitchen! I have had these everyday dishes for a couple decades! They are still my very favorite and get used the most in my kitchen! Italian Countryside is a classic!
So I’m bringing them out to “play”! I put the Italian Countryside cups, creamer and sugar bowl on the middle tier of the tray and did not add any extra fall elements. I didn’t want to overwhelm this sweet vignette with to much color and these pretty dishes can stand alone!
The bottom tier holds my favorite “ruffled” dishes. They are so so pretty. I got them at a local shop a few years ago! I have a penchant for white dishes. Especially white dishes with interesting edges!
I collect ironstone, like this small creamer, and mix it with other white pieces! I’m not fussy or exclusive. If a piece of dinnerware is white I love it!
My late blooming Pee Gee hydrangeas are so pretty right now I put three in a creamer with a few faux fall sprigs! In October the hydrangeas will turn a beautiful soft pink tinged with deep pink edges. But right now I’m enjoying their tiny snowy white blooms!
The top tier is filled with white pumpkins!
I added a few faux fall inspired berries and leaves.
Why don’t you let some of your dishes come out to play this fall? If you don’t have a tiered tray how about stacking a couple cake plate or pedestals or put a pretty vignette together in a tray or basket!
