Easy Fall Decor in the Dining Room


Not a lot has changed in the dining room since last time I shared it. It was so easy to add some touches of fall using the same tray that was there before. A mum, some baby boos, a few French accents and you have easy fall decor in the dining room.

The candlestick on the left is my newest one by Aidan Gray found at a local shop. I would love the real deal antique altar sticks, but they are way out of this gal's budget so reproduction is fine with me and they still are a little pricey, but sometimes you have to pay a bit more for things you want to decorate with.

The squirrels come out this time of year and this is a little salt and pepper shaker from Pottery Barn that I have had for several years.

I placed a small mum in this ironstone bowl and had to figure up a way to cover up the ugly plastic pot so I grabbed a sheet of brown paper and wrapped it up and threw in some baby boos. Like I said easy fall decor.

I decided to try these chairs by the antique French hutch.

A little leopard, or maybe it's cheetah, is always good.

I'm sharing some different angles I don't normally show.
