Autumn in the Dining Room
October 3, 2011
Hey y’all! I’m very excited to be hosting the Fall Craft Link Par-tay tomorrow! Over the weekend I added a few fun seasonal touches to the dining room. And I made soup. Because we all know soup and fall go hand in hand.
Last week, I brought home a bunch of gourds and pumpkins and scattered them across the table, then hung a few festive corn husk pom poms because don’t we all need more pom poms in our life? Yes, thank you, we do.
I played around with a few vignettes on the table watching the 49ers win (yes!). This one includes vibrant viburnum leaves from my yard in a vase full of white cannelloni beans (the stems are placed in water in a more narrow glass inside…) which also made me crave soup.
There is no such thing as too many white pumpkins in my book, this beauty is garnished with a few faux berries.
I distressed some plain ol’ orange pumpkins with paint – I love the contrast between the crisp white and intense orange.
So there’s a quick tour of the dining room – fall-ified for fun.
I’ll give you all the easy how to on the pom poms and pumpkins tomorrow, plus show you one more little project finished as well. The Par-tay starts at 6 a.m. PST. Bring your best fall craft!

See you tomorrow!
