Have you ever had a title for a post thought out in your mind and then something happens that makes you change it?
That happened to me this morning. I thought about doing this post yesterday and the title, “Fall-ing in love with black & white is what came to mind.
I have had the center of my kitchen table decorated for a week. This morning I added dishes to the table.
When I think of Fall I think of shades of gold, orange, browns, and a pop of red. The color of the gorgeous changing leaves here in UT.
I don’t think of black and white. However, when I decorated my Fall table that’s what came about.
It started with double stacked black hobnail cake stands topped with my cute checkered pumpkin. Notice that a crow landed on top?
I added this rustic black dough bowl that I filled with a touch of Fall.
I filled an old chicken feeder with pinecones, acorns, and an assortment of nuts.
I thought that this $4 yard sale jar with the white washed pinecones worked in perfectly. It will be a fun piece for winter also.
Of course my wise old owl with the b&w ticking had to be included!
Don’t you love this French script cabbage? A 60% discounted item after Spring at Hobby Lobby.
All placed upon a runner I made from a black striped feed sack. It is overcast and raining here today so I am having a hard time getting good pics. There has been some flooding just East of us. Hope everyone is getting it under control. We had a little in our basement, but hubby got it cleaned up quickly. No damage was done.
The final touch to the table was hanging a couple of creamers from the chandy. I filled them with a mini pumpkin.
This morning I added the dishes. Just a little b&w with a pop of orange.
Now here’s where the title change came about. Hubby walked in and said, “Are you decorating for Halloween?” I said, no it’s still Fall. He said, it looks like Falloween. I guess the orange and black just destined this post for a new title.
These sweet little carriage glasses were a thrift find. I only have two.
There you have it, my Falloween table!
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
