Adding Some Touches of Autumn

Saturday, September 19, 2020

Happy September folks!

With this month well under way and fall just being days away, I have to say that Fall is on my list of being maybe my favorite season. I love watching the leaves change. I love the cooler temperatures, and everything pumpkin.

Since moving into our new house, I have been getting impatient about working on adding those Autumn touches that include pumpkins.

Since I haven’t ventured out to find real pumpkins or baby boo pumpkins to add to my autumn decor. I improvised using what was on hand.

I added some Fall Kitchen decor on a budget.

One of my favorite ways to decorate is by using some of my own rustic and refound, like the rustic wooden pumpkin.

I wandered outdoors and foraged the natural element of dried grasses and added them to a white pitcher for contrast.

I think the golden color of the natural grasses adds to the autumn feel.

I added some copper votives and tossed in a plaid napkin for a simple look. (I might add that the copper votives are from Walmart in the bridal section. They cost around $12.00 for a dozen.) This is a very inexpensive way to add the fall look to your home. Leaves, apples, and grasses are great options to add around in your decor to make it cozy & homey.

Autumn in the Pantry

You might have noticed that I kind of lean towards the traditional colors of autumn. Those warm, rich colors of orange, rust, and the tones of copper. Yes, copper. I have fallen in love with the warmth that copper adds to that fall touch. I especially love decorating with copper in an all-white pantry. Copper really adds warmth and gives the space a pop!

Again, I added my rustic and refound wooden pumpkin, apples from the grocery store & remaining greenery from a bouquet of flowers sent to me a few weeks back.

I love to sprinkle a touch of those warm tones with the pale neutral colors.

I think that my pantry will become a favorite spot for styling dishes for the season. With it’s wide open space and many shelves, it will be big on charm and a great place to add loads of hidden character to the various dishes on display. For now, I’m loving the rich colors that copper adds to my collection of white serve ware.

So if you are a fan of copper for autumn like I am – it is so easy to incorporate those delicious tones in your decor.  Checkout those copper mugs! I can’t wait to serve up some hot cocoa. I think those copper mugs might make a great vase for a few flowers too!;)

I just might be on the hunt for more copper to add to my collection.

I hope I’ve given you some inspiration for budget decorating for autumn and using copper in your own home!

Happy Saturday!
