Fall Decor in the Dining Room

With Fall being my most favorite season of all, I got a jump start on my decorating...early...like in the first week of September before we went back to school. Why I have not shared any of it with you is a mystery. So why don't we rectify that right now by visiting the dining room, shall we?

Instead of using the same decor in the same places, I tried to mix things up this year. Some of the pictures may not be the best...we have had such rainy, gloomy weather lately. I can't remember the last time we saw the sun shine.

This is the centerpiece on my dining room table. I bought this old tool box at an antique store 2 years ago to use as a centerpiece for Thanksgiving (see here). I've made it part of my Fall decor this year because I really do love that box.



I moved my Fall subway art to the dining room this year. I added the pumpkin topiaries (which usually sit on my mantel) to the hutch. Simple, but I like it.



What I refer to as the "clock tower".



A little something on the chandy.



A little matching something on the mirror.



My dining room decorated for Fall. Sorry, again, about the light. Sunny skies are not in the forecast & I didn't want to hold off any longer sharing these with you.



It's getting close to the time where I start adding my Halloween decor. That's always fun.

Have a wonderful weekend & hopefully the sun will be shining in your neck of the woods. I'm hoping to catch up on my blog reading. I've fallen behind & I hate when that happens!

Stay tuned...Fall mantel coming up next week.

  1. Looks so homey and cozy! I can almost smell some cinnamon from afar Gina! I forgot to say I had no idea you were from UTICA...every year my Gramps and I would take the train up to Amsterdam NY..I can recall like yesterday the conductor saying, "NEXT stop UTICA"! you were not that far from me in Buffalo.
