Are you as excited as me about this week’s Fall Home Tour? In case you didn’t know, a group of us bloggers have formed an interest group called “All Things Home.” From time to time we’ll provide posts specific to a topic that’s near and dear to your home and heart. Not only that, but we also have lots of giveaways to share with you … like this week’s hand-painted $1500 Sarasota Chest from Somerset Bay. Scroll to the very end of this post for details on how to enter to win!
Since our All Things Home group is rather large, not all of us will participate in every single event – but we’ll be sure to give you the best of the best! I’m honored to be participating in this week’s Fall Home Tour showcase with our special giveaway. So without further adieu, step on into my home and see some of my fall decorating!
Fall Decor in the Dining Room
When I set a table, I always start with the centerpiece. It creates the theme and look for the entire tablescape. An old aqua shutter that’s been lying around the house waiting for a purpose, turned into a table runner for this year’s fall table setting.
Now that the centerpiece is complete, the white Baby Boo theme is extended to the rest of the table. Mismatched white dishes cradle a single Baby Boo at each setting. Did you know you can cook and eat these?
It’s All in the Details
A few more white pumpkins find their way into the dry sink, along with my new collection of vintage aqua jars that I found at the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio.
They were just $3 each so I couldn’t pass them up.
Vintage lace, a Baby Boo, and a paper fan from my DIY paper fan garland strung across the mirror in the background complete the vignette.
Also on the buffet is a vintage soup tureen filled with wine corks. Acquaviva Winery is just 5 miles from our house, and Autumn is when the grapes get harvested for new batches of wine. You wouldn’t think Illinois produces award-winning wine, but it does!
Simple Fall Decor in the Family Room
A bowl of apples picked from the local orchard grace the painted vintage blanket chest.
This is actually a cigar box decoupaged with book pages and scrapbook paper. You can buy the empty cigar boxes at a local beverage store for just $1.50 each. I have several on hand for various occasions.
Fall Decorating in the Kitchen Nook
An advantage of living near the country is the access you have to local farms. Just down the road I found a farmer selling Baby Boos and gourds for just 50 cents each. The pumpkins ranged from $2 to $3 … much cheaper than the grocery store!
I just love these beauties and hope I can find some more! You can see more photos of my kitchen nook decorated for fall.
Fall Inspired Bubble Bath
I can’t think of a better season for a lingering bubble bath. For me, autumn is marathon season which means lots of miles being run! This year I’m running the Naperville Marathon in November and a luxurious, candlelit bubble bath is a great way to pamper myself.
Since I ran a 20-mile race this morning, this bubble bath is calling my name! So it’s time to end my Fall Home Tour, turn down the lights, and climb inside the bubble bath waiting for me in my claw foot tub!
