“Fall”-ing Into The Foyer

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:12‬ ‭

Last week it was 95 degrees here in the Appalachian foothills, and I will admit…it’s pretty hard to decorate for autumn when the heat index still screams summer!  But, regardless of what the thermometer says, the calendar tells me that my favorite time of year is here!  

I am usually not one to be late to the party, but after seeing some beautiful autumn home tours all over blog land, I realized that I should probably pull out my seasonal decor and join you all!  I put together a small vignette in the kitchen last week, and today would you join me in the foyer as I make my fashionably late entrance to the fall home decor party?! 

I have a large collection of scarves and they often end up in vignettes rather than around my neck.  I shopped my house and collected things that remind me of autumn.  Feathers found their way into an hand-painted Italian pitcher…velvet pumpkins and fresh apples fill a tiered tray…antique leather books support a small squirrel box…rust pillar candles top a pair of tall candle stands.

The leopard print pumpkin is my favorite!

I am sure these apples will be baked into a pie with a dollop or two of ice cream.



The gold and silver tiered tray is a new find at Home Goods a few weeks ago…I like its rather elegant appearance.
Thursday is the first day of fall, and I am curious…what’s your favorite thing about the season?  I always appreciate your visits and comments!

    It’s in the 90’s here too, along with horrid humidity! Fall is my favorite season ~ love everything about it! Your decor is very pretty and yes, the leopard pumpkin is my favorite too. 🙂

    Gorgeous Pam! I love your new tiered tray addition~ I admired it at HomeGoods too! It was in the 90s here last week and upper 80s this week and I am weary and wilted! So ready for fall and all she has to offer, including crisp cool weather 🙂

  3. It’s always nice to find a piece to inspire, and the height of your new branch stand does it, Pam. Very nice arrangement. I really like using things like scarves, too. Now you’ll be ready when it finally does cool down, and can at least talk yourself into the season while indoors with A/C on (here too!). Happy Fall!

    It’s a wonderfully cool fall-ish morning here! Is it there, too? What a wonderful surprise after our recent heat – ten degrees higher than our southern seasonal norms. Ugh! Dare I hope fall is really here? We get teased way too often this time of year. I’ve been like you, Pam. I finally did ONE fall decoration over the weekend. One. I promise by Thursday, I’ll be in the mood and might possibly have more evidence of it around here. I love the sounds of fall while on my porch…ducks honking as they fly over in formation, the crisp air, and golden fields surrounding us. Those are just a few. I could list a thousand! Happy Monday, friend!

    Beautiful Pam! I love Fall because in Wisconsin we can wear Jeans and Hoodies 🙂 Campfires are a big deal in Wisconsin (though they often happen during the summer here) we will be having them during the fall when we move to Alabama. 🙂 I love the smell of pumpkin and the fall colors.

    So beautiful and picturesque !! And VERY excited your autumn vignettes have arrived.. I’ve been anxiously waiting! Love the tray and the beautiful rich colors in the scarf.. and the squirrel is adorable!!

  7. Love your combo of colors and elements against that gorgeous gold mirror! I like using golds and soft greens this time of year too Pam, and the leopard pumpkin is fabulous!! I returned to Bham Monday, yikes it’s hot and dry here! Won’t you be traveling to Nantucket soon, I can’t wait to see fall from your travels 🙂

    The tiered tray is gorgeous and perfect for this vignette! I love velvet pumpkins. I have three, but the leopard is so darn fun!! Love your cute squirrel. I made apple crisp last week with some apples given to me by a friend. It was so yummy! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  9. It was so hot here in NJ for the longest time but it finally cooled down. We slept with our windows open last night. The temps are quite chilly this morning – but I love it! Your foyer is beautiful with all the lovely fall colors and that mirror is gorgeous! Enjoy your week, Pam!

We love your comments!
