Fall is officially here and I am loving it! I love to change up my table decor to help me celebrate the change of seasons… especially when it is still 90 degrees here in Southern California and still feels like summer! It is really not a hard thing to do. I want to share with you all what I did and how easy it really is!


In my antique vases, I change out the arrangements according to whatever season it is. I no longer like to use fresh flowers or foliage. I want it to last! If you decide to use something fresh for fall, I love the little pumpkin looking things on a stem that they sell in most grocery stores and in Trader Joes. That is what I used to use before I decided to start using reusable “forever” lasting dry and silk pieces like these I found at Michaels Craft store. It is an investment, but well worth it through the years. 


I love my orange glass lanterns I found at World Market last year. I am pretty sure they still sell them. They offered them in a variety of colors including clear. But I fell in love with the festive-ness of these orange beauties. I love the punch of color they add to my table. I also found these wonderful woody candles at World Market. Aren’t they the most perfect Fall candle? Put them on any candle sticks you own. In my wooden tray I use for so many different seasons, I put real mini pumpkins and squash amidst some mercury tea light candle holders, leaves and berries. I like to mix in some real things with the fake. I love the ambiance that candles give when sitting down at a table. And I love this setting for the different gatherings we have had and will hold at this table. This table setting will take me from September through November. Three whole months….now that is awesome!

One last thing…. I found this golden mercury glass acorn at my local Homegoods. I love to hang little gems like these on my kitchen cabinet. Adds just a touch of Fall to my kitchen. I told you I like simple. It is soon time for my Halloween decorations to come out. They will be additions to these simple Fall decorations that will last way past Halloween. With the end of summer comes one holiday after another… bring it on! Makes me giddy!
