Fall Decor Tour


 Welcome to my first Fall Décor Tour.  One year ago, we had just moved into the farmhouse, so decorating for fall included simple décor choices.  This year my choices were a bit more intentional.  I'm not a huge Halloween fan, so my fall décor consists of items that will carry me through to Thanksgiving. This includes items like pumpkins, fall leaves and stems,  acorns, pinecones and cattails.  I wanted to keep my choices neutral, so most of my pumpkins are white or pale blue.  I did use a few pops of orange because you must have a few authentic looking pumpkins.  I really don't remember seeing white pumpkins as a child, however I'm very attracted to them now. With that being said, I do strive for authenticity, so I must included the original color of pumpkins as well.   One of my recent finds is a wooden encyclopedia box that still has the shipping label from 1951 attached.  I decided to use it front and center of my fall décor.  So I filled it with an ironstone pitcher and ironstone platter, some old books, a variety of faux fall stems, some rolled music sheets and of coarse a few pumpkins.   This all came together to create the center piece for my coffee table.
