Bring on the Fall Touches!

Fall is my favorite season of the year- very short in Chicago- we go from hot to snow very quickly. So as soon as the first brisk morning happens, I feel the need to start pulling out all the cozy elements of fall decor.
Bittersweet and moss balls- love the color combination!

Throw in a few velvet pumpkins too!
Love all these different textures together!

 Throw a few orange hydrangeas in with the neutral ones -

 Need to find my big twigs of bittersweet and add those too! But I don't know where I stored them??

Pull out the plaid throws that I sent to the dry cleaners last fall!

Find those fur pillows that were made from old vintage coats and toss on the sofa!
And everyone knows that I love a little sparkle- so I decide to further embellish this old velvet pillow with a rhinestone buckle and throw it in the mix for fall!


Can't forget the pink and grey pumpkins- perfect for some spots in the house.

 Pin an antique pin on the white one!  Again a little glitz!
Plant these cute petite kale from Home Depot in the vintage silver goblets for just a touch of green!

Love this!

Check out  the buffet in the hall and find the horn and pewter flatware!

 Love transferware in the fall!  Just got these new green salad plates from Allison at the Polohouse!

Pewter ends of the flatware.

Just found these rust linen green velvet embellished napkins at a local store!

They are perfect with the transferware and dinner plates from Blackberry Farm that my friends gave me for my birthday last year!

Polish some silver flatware just to throw in the mix.

 Pull out the bone handled trays-

Finally, could not resist these for fall.  Another little combination of rustic swede with a little sparkle!
Perfect for fall!  I found these yesterday at Nordstrom's Rack. They are Vera Wang and they had lots of pairs in olive and a deep reddish burgundy color!  So comfy too!
            So until next week, happy fall everyone!  Hope you are enjoying it too! Time to put out your own fall touches!

Why is it that we just love fall here in the Midwest?! Loved seeing your fall touches. My velvet pumpkins came out as well! Glad you're back safe and sound.

Love the bittersweet arrangement. From your garden?
All of your fall embellishments were stunning right down to those cute shoes.
