My porch has been decorated for Fall for a couple of weeks now, and I'm finally getting the rest of the house decorated as well.
I sometimes find my foyer hard to decorate. It's a nice-sized entry, but I like to keep it free from too much stuff. I do have one antique dresser in the foyer, and it's always held a much-loved elephant lamp. To add just a bit of Fall to the dresser, I created a simple vignette.
I was born and reared in West Tennessee. My grandfather (not many generations back, but my dad's father!) was a sharecropper. By the time I came along, he'd managed to buy a small piece of land for growing cotton. My childhood memories include many images and smells of that cotton field. When I think of crops being harvested, I think of cotton. I was tickled to find these faux cotton stems from the Perfectly Imperfect shop that look so realistic!
To create this Fall vignette, I simply placed my cotton stems in a blown glass vase. They "arrange themselves" beautifully, I think. I found the free "Happy Fall" printable at Jones Design Company (thank you, Emily!). I printed it at 80% of its original size so it would fit in my 5" x 7" frame. I added a ceramic acorn and voila! My foyer is ready to welcome Autumn guests.
Decorating doesn't get much simpler than this! What have you done to welcome Fall at your house?
