Dining room fall décor



I don't start really decorating for Halloween
until October. Before that I like some time
to enjoy the more autumnal harvest style.




The pumpkin candle holders were gifted to me
by my cousin a few years back. The other ones
I found on sale at MIO a couple of weeks ago.
 (The table cloth is obviously purple and not blue,
but this stupid camera is messing up the colors...)


 


For years I have had this chandelier hanging
in the store, sure it wouldn't fit in our dining room.
But now as the store is closing I decided to take
it home and give it a try out, and it's just perfect.




The day the local garden store finally announced
the arrival of the season's pumpkins and gourds
I was there, picking out the best specimens.


 


 I mean, just look at this little guy; it's The Gourd of Love!


Have you guys started decorating for the season?
Do you decorate in a certain order?

  1. I do look forward to your blog posts as Halloween draws near, you always have such gorgeous, cosy images to share. (The tablecloth looks purple on my screen by the way) :)

    I love decorating with dried leaves and pine-cones for Autumn and add touches of spookiness throughout October. I reuse the pine-cones when Christmas comes around, too.

    1. Thank you, sweet Yvonne! I plan on doing another decor post in a few weeks, when all the Halloween is coming out :)

      Pine cones signal winter and X-mas for me, so they'll have to wait. But I'm sure they'll look beautiful in your autumn home.

    1. Thank you so much, Gail! I always enjoy your DIY decor posts too, and maybe you'll throw in something spooky soon? :)

  3. I was just thinking I could start getting out a few autumn decorations yesterday! Promptly followed by the thought that nobody's going to see them anyway so why bother? But yours look so lovely I'm going to shake off my lethargy and do it anyway ... ;)

    The chandelier is a perfect fit!

    1. I decorate mostly for myself, it's true. Then I pull my man's arm and direct his attention to it, and he goes: 'Oh, look how pretty everything is' and that's that ;)

  8. I really want to do Halloween in a country that get all festive about it, a bit light on in Oz, I always have trick or treat, and last year carved a watermelon for it because there were no pumpkins available ;) These look like you will be well and truly ready come Oct 31st :)

    1. I can't imagine Halloween in spring time, but if you have a historical look into the festivities surrounding it, most of them were done in spring time actually!
      But yes, I would love to do a REAL Halloween in the US, my man and I were actually talking about maybe doing that next year :)

  9. I love that chandelier! I start my autumn decorating on September 1st. Halloween decor comes out October 1st and gets put away Nov. 3rd. Autumn decor stays out until the Thanksgiving is over (in my family we don't get to celebrate on the day). Then winter comes out.
    Have a great day!

    1. Since we don't have Thanksgiving over here, the autumn décor goes away when the Halloween does. So there's always three weeks in November without décor that way heavy on me. Good thing I like x-mas too ;)

  10. You post makes me want to decorate now....but I wait till Mabon. All items are awesome. My next thrifting trip I will look for a chandelier, I want one now.

    1. Well, I am late replying so Mabon is almost upon us :) I would love to see some pictures of your décor too.

  11. I really need to get on the ball. We typically just decorate for Halloween and let it carry on until nearly Christmas!

    1. In Sweden we're all about celebrating before the actual date (Halloween is over on the 1st of November, x-mas is over on the 26th of December) so we have to kick off early :)

  12. Omg! I'm in love with that chandelier and the gourd of love is too darling. In my mind my apartment is draped in black gauze and twinkling light skulls.

    1. Thank you! You should totally create your dream apartment in real life!

  13. That chandelier is perfect, indeed! And I love the ♥ gourd. ;-)

    I have not started decorating. I'm a rather late decorator, and our decorations are rarely too extravagant. We usually limit ourselves to a Halloween Tree... And my altar gets all decked up, of course.

    1. If I had an altar, most of my stuff would probably be concentrated there too. This year I have decided to make a proper Halloween tree - after hearing and seeing about it from so many American friends!
