Hey everyone. I thought today I would give you a few glimpses into my new Fall dining room, but first I want to share a fun & very generous Give-Away from Kathy @ A Tiny Cottage. She is celebrating her blog reaching 100 followers, so go over & check it out. She has such a charming home!
Now on to my dining room Fall decor. First I wanted to share how the dining room & china hutch looked in our previous house.
The ceilings were only 8' in this house, so I was limited in what I could display on top of the hutch.
We enjoyed this dining room, but it was very dark. I even added the mirrors on the back wall of the china hutch to bring some reflective light.
Then the dining room looked like this just a month ago. Poor sad china hutch was stuck way back in the corner & surrounded with boxes, chairs, etc.
In our new home, this dark pine beauty can really strut her stuff! This hutch is in full view from our entry, so I like to have everything just right.
Only one item is new here -- the square plate in the center. I had everything else at our previous house, but most items were in other locations. I put a string of small Christmas lights on the top of the hutch just to add a soft glow.
This glass & metal art piece is something we bought several years ago in Sedona, AZ. It's really pretty & shows up much better in person than in photos.
I think I would like to add a large metal piece to the wall behind these items. Hmmm.......shopping?
Found this plate last week at Hobby Lobby. I just love the colors!
I usually use these little birds in the Spring, but love all the greens that are going on here.
I just tucked a little berry & bead wreath behind the glass orb display to add a bit of sparkle.
I made this tapestry table runner last year. My center piece consists of an iron candle stick (love the fleur de lis) standing in a swirly, wire bowl. I surrounded the base with these pretty little acorns that I picked up at Kirkland's.
Knew you would want to have one last look, right?
Wow, I actually can do a fairly short & less wordy post! Ya'll lucked out! I feel so blessed to have so many "bloggy" friends. I appreciate all of you so much. Thanks so much for stopping by and please come again soon.
I'm happily linking to these wonderful parties:
