Our Autumn Dining Room

Pin It


Even though I switched out our summer accents for our autumn ones a month and a half ago, I kept putting off taking photos of our dining room decorated for autumn because I wanted to do something much more creative with it... but seeing how that hasn't happened I decided to just add some hydrangeas from Fresh Market and a cinnamon scented broomstick from Trader Joe's yesterday and that's about it. Anyway, I figured I would show you the simple fall touches we have in there now and then hopefully next week will add some fun touches for Halloween.









We collected a bunch of acorns down in Colonial Williamsburg to fill some mason jars with for a simple autumn touch. Afterward, I saw something similar that Susan of Hometown Girl did and she added candles which I think looks so much prettier. I think I may have to try that!



 


My mom was here this past weekend and the girls and I had so much fun with her. I got spoiled having her make dinner every night and do laundry and Lola loved snuggling up with her. Lillie had a ball coloring, painting, and reading with her and even sneaking into her bed at night and snuggling up to her. =) Both girls cried so hard on the way home from the airport after we dropped her off on Monday night. It was so sad. I hate that we live so far from our families but am grateful that we are still able to see them so much.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. Very pretty, sis! I love the "bundle" in front of the platter, on the half-table.

    I live in the Philippines and we use that for a broom! It's called "ting-ting."

    I'm going to use a ting-ting like this soon (unpacking after just moving in) and believe me, I'm going to be laughed at. But, it's sooooo fall and so pretty. Texture. Height.

    Pretty!

  9. Jenni, I want to be a squatter in your home. I adore it. It's my happy blog place. I love your clock (been on the hunt for one myself....where did you find it?), and your natural fall elements are a perfect compliment to your decor. My Mom is also a plane ride away, and it's so difficult for 'Granny' to be so far. She's coming for a month over Christmas, and myself and my 2 girls couldn't be happier!

  13. Is that a new clock? Gorgeous as are you fall touches! Be careful of your acorns... I remember several blog posts last fall about worms coming out of them! Someone said they baked theirs in the oven to kill anything in them! I always love when you have a new blog post. I am never disappointed and always inspired!

  15. Thanks! Yes, it is new. My husband surprised me with it for our fifth anniversary! I had been wanting it for the past two years and he went in and did some haggling a few weeks before our anniversary. I was shocked!

  18. The living room is beautiful! I'm so behind on fall decorating - I got as far as taking a few things out and setting on them mantle. But they're kitchen things!
    I feel the same way about my mom. The visits are so wonderful.

  26. I love the idea of putting acorns in mason jars! So simple, but such a great Fall touch! I'm a Biology teacher, and I have an affinity for decorating with simple things in nature (ie. moss, pinecones, etc.). I enjoy looking and reading about all of your great ideas! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Ana - I got it at Savvy, here in Williamsburg. I have searched high and low for something similar ever since and haven't been able to find anything with the same feel in a low price range like the one I got :(
