Fall Dining Room and Lillie's First Day of Preschool



It has been a rather crazy week. I still haven't finished my fall decorating but I did take a bunch of photos of the dining room, living room and porch right before Lola and I left to head out of town yesterday. Honestly, I'm not happy at all with how the dining room turned out but I figured I would show you how it looks now and I am guessing later this month or at some point in October I am going to switch it up to something I like better once I get some real pumpkins and other things. I think right now it looks a little too busy and dull. I did everything in quite the hurry though because I knew I would be heading to NH to be with my family as my grandfather is in the hospital and not doing very well. I waited to travel until last night, though, because I wanted to make sure I got to see Lillie head off for her first day of school ever! (I posted some of those photos below). First, though, here are a few pictures of our dining room (I'll show the other rooms as I have time):





















 Lillie was so excited about her first day and absolutely LOVED it!



 
She spent most of the afternoon after she got home doing self imposed "homework". Little does she know how much she's going to dread that someday - haha!

Oh and not to leave Lola out here she was on the plane. She carried Lillie's little pretend computer all around the airport and was a little angel baby on both flights. She thought she was pretty grown up! =) Sorry for the blurry phone picture.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!

  1. Your dining room looks lovely!!! I don't find it busy or dull at all! I love the pumpkins with wreath. Girl, anything you touch looks good! Lillie looks so big and so proud of herself! My baby girl started 1st grade. It is the first time she has ever been gone from me all day every day. It has been a tough week for me, but she is loving it so I am so happy for her! I hope Lillie has had a great one too! Safe travels!

    1. Thanks! I got them several years ago at a shop in Williamsburg called Seasons on clearance. I've checked to see if they got any more in and they never have. =(

  6. Your fall decorations are lovely, don't stress too much about them. I truly hope your grandfather gets well soon, will keep him in my prayers. Lillie looks adorable as always, how exciting to be starting school, I can't believe she was excited, my first was not quite so happy to be sent to school when he first started. And of course, Lola is just to precious.

  13. I'm keeping your Grandfather in my prayers Jenni. Your home is always stunning. You have such a magical way of decorating. It is always gorgeous and so classy and elegant. Lillie looks very happy on her first day of school...such a big day for her and for you! She's adorable. Lola is darling and I agree with you...she will probably have a blog up and running in no time...a lot sooner than I am getting mine done. She looks like the perfect travel buddy.

  14. Aw that is so cute!! I knew Lillie would be eager to go to school and be a big kid! She is so darling and is going to move and shake the world! Lola is a little peach isn't she? Thanks for sharing their pics, I love to see them doing regular kid stuff....always had only boys, so its fun to see little girls. The dining room looks nice, its elegant and sophisticated~I don't really like lots of fall decor, so it seems just right to me. Hoping your grandfather pulls through.

  21. Hi Jenni, I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather! I hope you enjoy spending time with your family this weekend. I'm happy to hear that Lola did well on the flights! She's not at an easy travel age - she probably loved the one-on-one time with you though. I think MG and I have a flight in our near future . . . I pray it goes as well as your trip did! Yay for Lillie's first day! She looks so cute. Your dining room looks great!
