“But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.”
My “sweet home Alabama” finally received several days of good soaking rain and lower temps last week. Summer is waning and autumn is on my mind! After a few months of scorching heat, I welcome the change! With the new season coming upon us, I can’t help but think forward to cooler nights to sit on the patio, the changing of leaves everywhere we look, pumpkin flavored everything, and let’s not forget college football (Roll Tide!) I took to my Pinterest board for some autumn inspiration and I want to share with you, my fabulous readers!

Maple trees provide gorgeous autumn color! And look at the elegant fence! I bet the mailman enjoys delivering to this box! The ladder is a great idea for a rustic porch! Pumpkins and mums are autumn staples! Who would not enjoy this bountiful table? The burlap tablecloth adds the perfect touch to this outdoor soirée! Lovely neutral mantel for those who don’t want to use orange for the season! The sweater pillow and blanket welcomes you to enjoy this cozy chair! This idea is great for an entrance table or dining buffet! What is autumn without comfort food? Sweet potatoes, spicy sausage, sweet bell peppers, and caramelized onions for a fall dinner! Butternut squash is a favorite fall vegetable and bacon makes everything tasty! We all enjoy a bowl of hearty, home-made soup for a crisp autumn evening! Apple harvest pound cake is a great ending! Who can resist a spicy pumpkin cake with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting? This is a simple centerpiece to make, you just need the right container. What I love is it will keep for several weeks! I may use this idea for my kitchen island! This centerpiece will transition from autumn to Christmas…feathers, pine cones, and magnolia leaves! Classic and elegant…sprig of rosemary…satin ribbon…golden leaf…mini pumpkin. Ladies, this is easy to pull off! Rosemary is so easy to grow and I use it for cooking and decorating!
A woodland setting with all the right elements! An autumnal buffet with great style! Note the varying heights, textures, and colors! Golden touches for autumn! Now how easy is this? I will be using this for Tablescape Tuesday – stay tuned! Tea lights and pumpkins for a seasonal centerpiece! What is autumn (especially in the south) without football! ROLL TIDE ROLL!
What about you? How will you decorate for autumn? Do you have special recipes for cooler weather? What football team do you root for? We love hearing from you!
