Fall Buffet

Sunday, September 28, 2014

For some reason it took me all week to finish this vignette. I had a million and one interruptions. I was waiting on pumpkins at first and after the pumpkins appeared in the stores I just kept hitting snags along the way. I almost said forget it, by the time I finish this no one will be interested in fall decor. However I managed to get it done.

I love it when other bloggers use those beautiful vintage breadboards as backdrops in photos. I don't own any yet but I have a boat load of vintage thrifted silver so I decided to take it out of the cupboards and use it in my vignette.

This year I wanted to use real pumpkins and other natural elements like dried hydrangea from my sad hydrangea crop and dried seed pods from the coneflowers that have long since bloomed. I also used some dried liartis also from the garden. I added in some moss from my stash and cotton boll stems.

I also bought a few tiny pots of ornamental kale and added them to my vintage coffee pot and planted a few in a milk glass pot and added it to my coffee table.

I could only find orange pumpkins so I painted them white using Glass of Milk, a Martha Stewart paint.

I added a few painted pumpkins to my coffee table  along with the ornamental kale.

 I'm still working on my settee redo, I'm hoping to finish it this week. Well thats all for now friends, thanks for stopping by. I'll be joining these fun link ups this week,
