It’s late summer and the temps are still warm here in the south, but in the evenings there’s a hint of fall in the air.
Yesterday I shared a new lamp I had just added to the porch. It’s painted one of my fave colors, a soft green. I love the color combination of green and white. It feels so fresh and so alive.
I have a hutch here on the porch and it’s painted in the same pretty green. Each year when I decorate it in early fall, I normally go with the traditional fall colors of red, gold, brown. This year I decided to try something completely different.
Inspired by the new lamp, I decided to decorate the hutch for fall in soft whites and creams. I’m liking how that looks with the lamp that lives on the hutch, too.
Would you ever believe you could decorate for fall using collectibles and objects in white and cream? I’m surprised how much I like it. It really makes for a nice transition from summer to fall.
Let’s take a closer look.
Pumpkins remind us fall is just around the corner while the turkeys take us deeper into fall and celebrations of Thanksgiving.
I found these cute turkey soup tureens in Old Time Pottery three years ago. Unfortunately, they only had three so I’ve never been able to use them in a Thanksgiving table setting. Maybe I’ll have to set a two-person Thanksgiving table sometime. I keep checking when I visit OTP, hoping they’ll get another one in.
I baked blueberry muffins this morning in hopes you would stop by. Be sure and have one before you go! I’ve already sampled them, you know…just to make sure they were okay to eat. 😉
I’m holding onto summer just a little bit longer…but anticipating fall in all its glory.
