Fall Inspiration: Decor, Table, Recipe & Craft

Laziest seasonal decorator award goes to me just about every fall and Christmas (I like to keep things decidedly simple, relaxed and undone). Yet I love the IDEA of decorating for fall. Somehow, too much time is spent admiring everyone else’s efforts rather than executing all of the great possibilities to celebrate and savor the season. Today’s Fall Inspiration: Decor, Table, Recipe & Craft is just what I need to begin addressing my entry decor, planning a fall tablescape, and getting pumped for creating yummy autumn things too.

Fall Inspiration: Decor, Table, Recipe & Craft

Last fall, Elizabeth of the beautiful blog Pretty Pink Tulips, (living, giving and entertaining with style and grace) inspired us with decor ideas for autumn.

Remember her darling little King Charles Cavalier, Molly????

Autumn Decor Inspiration From Elizabeth/PPT

Originally from Texas, Elizabeth lived in San Francisco, NYC, and Charlotte, before moving to a small town in New York. Elizabeth told us that moving around and living in other areas of the country contributed to her love of home.

With each move, she sought to create a special and comforting place for her family. So many of us can relate, and indeed, if you are someone who has lived in many different homes, I bet you too are skilled at decorating from all the practice!

When I think of Elizabeth’s blog PPT, I do think of spring and her pink tulips, but when the tulips are asleep in their bulbs, this blogger knows her way around fall’s splendor. She adores the season with its vibrant colors and opportunity to deck out her window boxes.

I am taking a cue from Elizabeth and layering simple fall vegetation in my own planters flanking the front door.

How about you?

Lovely Fall Inspiration: Recipe

Cinnamon Raisin Bread Pudding in BH&G

I was leafing through a magazine at the doctor’s office yesterday and glimpsed what I thought was a beautiful spice cake (Oui, I’m hopeless and cake eating is still far from reality as I continue to jump through hoops to get the GB surgery I need so I can eat food without pain…this experience has been a test of endurance and I am dreaming of a yummy Thanksgiving.)

BACK TO SWEETER MATTERS…The layer cake I saw was actually a cinnamon raisin bread pudding (see this recipe in BH&G’s October 2018 issue) baked in two round cake pans and stacked. Doesn’t this look amazing!?!

Fall Inspiration: DIY Velvet Pumpkins

Anyone else feeling crafty and also ready to create something lovely for fall?

Here’s a great tutorial I found for making a velvet pumpkin…if you have a pumpkin patch nearby, a helpful tip from the video is to collect stray pumpkin stems lying on the ground to use for this project.

I plan to get my craft on too and will let you know how it goes. The stems need to dry before you use them for your pumpkin making.

I’m not crazy about using stretchy velvet even though I understand why this type of fabric is suitable for the craft. I want to experiment with some natural fabrics or cotton velvet.

Hope this finds you well and joyfully expectant of the season’s change.

      What a blessing to have hearts as lovely as yours – thank you for the prayers. Keep them coming! Tomorrow I see the surgeon and hope my surgery is scheduled asap. Peace and love to you.

    Michelle, I have been praying for you. Have you had surgery yet? If so, I hope you are beginning to feel better. Lovely site this morning; that dog is precious!
    Thank you.

      I so appreciate you taking time to pray, Teresa. Yesterday I was cleared for surgery, and tomorrow I’ll see the surgeon tomorrow and sure hope the surgery is sooner than later. Peace to you, friend.

    Hi Michele,
    Thanks for sharing this post, I love the autumn window boxes and topiary. Just painted my front door harvest gold so that’s a start🙂

    Pumpkins plunked down in the middle of an urn trailing with ivy is just what I like to do for my front porch. One year, I had a pair of Boston ferns and used those for my pumpkin beds, not planning to keep the ferns because they already were a bit ratty. Easy enough to pull out and make way for winter arrangements.

      Yay! My ferns are lush and lovely so I hope to incorporate them soon if I can muster up the energy! Thanks for adding to the beauty here. xox
