Today’s decorating ideas are from Loretta at Moonstruck Cottage. Here is what she is sharing with us….
Most of my fall decor is natural. Oh, I have lots of fall-themed stuff packed away in containers in my storage room, but lately I can never seem to find the time (or the energy!) to dig it all out.
We have lots of hydrangea bushes on our property, so here I have arranged cut flowers in a large vintage wooden salad bowl. I adore hydrangeas!
This is a lantana plant in an antique copper planter. It is sitting on an old architectural tile on an old wrought iron chair. Colorful pumpkins add to the fall theme.
Here I have cut a few small branches from one of our Japanese maple trees and placed them in a worn silverplate pitcher. (The pitcher is available in my shop.) Sitting next to the pitcher is a vintage Napco turkey salt and pepper shaker set.
This is an ornamental pepper plant that I purchased at my local nursery. I love the way the little peppers look like berries. This is hard for me to believe, but I’ve owned the clay planter for over 30 years – so I guess that makes it vintage! I remember buying it soon after we bought our first home.
I love the fall season – the bright, sunny, cool days; the wondrous colors of the turning leaves; and the way the slant of the sunlight casts long shadows. The one thing that I don’t like about fall is that winter is right around the corner!
