The Softer Side of Fall

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT The Softer Side of Fall Once again, I had so much fun looking at all of the inspiring links at The Scoop! I was hoping to see some early fall ideas since I seem to have fall on the mind lately…and I was not disappointed! However, I have noticed that fall is taking on a different look this year…in soft and muted natural tones!

dollar store pumpkins main You know I loved this one since I am so cheap thrifty! Tanya at twelveoeight created the pumpkins and the stands using items she found  at the dollar store! Sweet!

easy grapevine pumpkin Isn’t this the cutest idea… a little pumpkin made of tiny grapevine wreaths! See how it was done at Lilacs and Longhorns!

[036%255B7%255D.jpg]I am also sharing my neutral fall tablescape from 2011…white pumpkins with bittersweet and mercury glass. Was I ahead of my time? lol You can get a closer look here. I have to say, though, that I am usually an “orange in the fall” kind of gal. But I am still working on this year’s fall decor, so time will tell! You will be able to see it all on my fall home tour on September 25th…so stay tuned! You can get all the details here.

IMG_3891And I can’t talk about neutral fall décor without sharing my all-time most popular project…my ruffled burlap table runner! It has been a real work horse for me…the base for all of my fall and winter tablescapes. You can find a detailed tutorial including tips on measuring here.

 Don't forget...there’s still time to link up if you haven’t yet and lots more to see as well, so head on over to The Scoop to check out more wonderfully creative links and share yours!

    I, too, am typically and orange kind of fall person, but this year, I'm doing things a little more muted. I'm still putting some orange in there too, because I just need that pop of color. I do love your has just the perfect touch of pop with the berry garland.

    Can't wait to see the rest of your fall decor.
