Fall Entertainment Center

Happy Friday, Friends! Today, I would like to share my Entertainment Center decorated for Fall.  
On the top two shelves I have two large oversized plates in green and brown. I keep these plates out year long.
I placed a pumpkin on top of my book boxes.
On the lower two shelves, I placed two Autumn plates on either side, and accessorized with a Fall arrangement, a black bird, and a basket with a pumpkin sitting in it.
Here is the middle portion decorated. See my Owls up top? I placed the Owls in amongst greenery, fall leaves, pumpkins, and corn.
I had to Tuscan-ize this arrangement a bit, so I added my metal wall decor and hung a fall wreath from it. I sat my Tuscan canisters and two topiaries on either side.
I love this wreath.
In the below picture, I added a simple porcelain pumpkin. 
On this shelf, I added the other matching Autumn plate and placed a pumpkin in a basket.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend! XO, ~Liz

Fall Decorating ~ With Owls

Can I get a WOOT-WOOT? Owls are so fun to incorporate into your fall decor.
Some people may incorporate black birds, some may use Roosters, some may use Owls, I incorporate all three, ha! 
I found this little guy at Rite Aid, 50% off.
These Owls were from Rite Aid, too! Last years Owls.
Just add some fall leaves and set an Owl beside it and you have a cute vignette.
Set an Owl in a basket with some greenery and fall berries.
This owl I set on the hearth, he sits beside a fall berry swag and a lantern.
I bring this Owl out every year!
See my Fall Tree? Well, I made it an Owl themed tree and an Owl sits perched atop a bed of leaves.  
I made the owl my tree topper.
Owls can be seen in various parts of the tree.
This is my Autumn tree from last year, can you spot an owl?
What animals, if any, do you incorporate into your Autumn Decor?
Thanks for visiting, friends! xo, Liz

Christmas Trees

Hi there, Friends! I sure have Christmas on my mind. 
Last year, we moved one week before Christmas. We had a garage sale and I sold and gave away almost all my Christmas decor. A lady from a local home decor store showed up and said, "I'll take it ALL and sell it in my shop!"  She purchased the tree you see above with everything on it, and two other trees that I had decorated for xmas.
So, now I'm trying to think ahead about what kind of trees I want to do this year. I've been into the red and green theme for years.
I may do something completely different this year.
Hmm, what to do, what to do????
I have some ideas up my sleeve and can't wait to get started. As silly as this sounds, I am ready for a peppermint mocha holiday drink and some Christmas music...hurry up winter! ;)
We are now upon the rainy season here in Washington State, so I'm going to blame my "Christmas mood" on the weather, ha!

Simple Ways To Fall-ify Your Home

Happy Friday, Friends! Today, I would like to share some simple ways to fall-ify your home!
I have found over the years that layering and grouping items is really the way to add warmth to your vignettes. Now, y'all know I'm no minimalist, (I wish I was) BUT even the stores layer their vignettes. The picture above was taken at Pottery Barn. I love how they grouped all the items together.
Adding wreaths is a great way to celebrate the changing of each season. 
Same thing applies to pillows, simply change them out with the seasons. You certainly don't want your summer pillows out during fall, or your fall pillows out during Christmas.  ;)
Add a simple Autumn centerpiece to your table and set some real or faux pumpkins beside it.
If you have any baskets or trays laying around the house, simply add some pumpkins and leaves to it for a pretty vignette on any table.
I thought this was a cute idea: Add M&M's to any glass vase and add fall flowers to it. I saw this at my grocery store. I always snap photos when I see things I like and use them for inspiration later on. Do any of you do that when you're out and about?
Fall platters are a great way to jazz up your kitchen during Fall.
Owls are the latest trend for Fall. WOOT, WOOT!! You can find block letters at various stores that spell out things like: Fall, Autumn, Blessings, Thankful...perfect for Fall!
Add pumpkins and gourds to your porch display. I like to toss them into baskets at different heights. :)
If you have metal wall art, a great way to add warmth is by adding a wreath.
During fall, I like to add dried green split peas to my glass containers. It's a simple way to add a pop of color in the kitchen.
I added a pumpkin and some fall leaves and berries. I like to call this....Fall In A Jar! ;)
You've all seen those light-up pumpkins around town. I like to vary my pumpkins at different heights.
Here is another display I did in the kitchen using different kinds of beans you can get at the grocery store. I sat my glass canisters in a basket and added leaves, pumpkins, and gourds around it. In the canisters, I added a pumpkin to each one.
In the family room, I added this wreath to my metal and wood wall art.
You can buy the artificial fall flowers at any craft store and a cute way to add a little pizzazz to them is by tying them altogether with a ribbon, and then you can set it beside something.
In my family room, I have added some big fall plates to the shelves on my entertainment center.
Lastly, I could't help but share this picture. This is our dog, Bentley, taken last Fall when we got him. He was completely "obsessed" with leaves, every time he went exploring, we would find him with a leaf in his mouth.  Isn't he sweet? He is one now, and completely obnoxious, but we love him anyway! ;)
Thanks for taking the time to visit, and have a wonderful weekend! XOXO, ~Liz

A Peek Around The Autumn Filled House

Hi there, friends! Would you like to take a quick tour around the house? Ok, follow me! 
Don't you just love Autumn colors? Fall colors feel so warm and cozy and that's how I was trying to make our house feel like this season.
My Autumn tree is up, and is OWL themed this year! Can I get a WOOT-WOOT? ;) I sat the tree in a basket and plan to fill the basket with real pumpkins and gourds.
 Above is the informal dining room decorated for Fall.
 Last week, I shared my chandelier decked for fall, here it is again!
Below is the front sitting room.
 On the coffee table, I added some real baby pumpkins and corn to my everyday greenery.
Here is the kitchen decorated for Fall.
 Cozy. Casual. Comfortable.
Here is the foyer area.
This display is in the entry.
 So is this....
Below is my chalkboard door I created with Happy Fall Y'all written on it.
This is our dining room.
Isn't Mr. Owl cute sitting perched atop the fall leaves.

More on my fall tree later...
