I fell for it…
Fell for what you ask?
That prerequisite to the start of practically any fall decor…
Those darn cute pumpkins!
If you read my last post for the perfect fall centerpiece then you may know what I’m talking about.
I mentioned that I was over using pumpkins to decorate for the fall. Sure, I had a couple in my kitchen before even clicking publish for that post, but I wanted to keep it that way, just a few, for this year at least.
Then I decided that my kitchen needed more fall decorations. So I got to digging through all my old fall stuff and there they were. All the pumpkins I use year after year. They were screaming for me to use them.
I debated for a bit and wondered…
Would I be wrong for using pumpkins to decorate after clearly saying that I wouldn’t, will everyone that read my last post demand a refund of their time after finding out that I clearly didn’t stick to what I said I would (or wouldn’t) do??
Then I said to myself…it’s not that serious Sindy!
We’re just talking about a few extra sweet pumpkins here after all.
So I got to decorating and as usual, I made use of a few items I already had on hand to bring everything together.
Ok, let’s get started. It is November after all! Falls almost done and soon we’ll be talking about Christmas. Yay!
Here we go…
Simple Fall Kitchen Decor
First those pumpkins
I used a few pumpkins I had stored away to decorate my kitchen table.
I started by grabbing an old black and white kitchen towel, folded it and placed it in the center of the table.
Then I used an old pickle jar I was about to toss to hold a few mini pumpkins I found at the dollar store years ago. I washed the jar first, (of course, lol) filled it with the pumpkins…
Then I got some leftover ribbon from my last post and tied it on to the jar.
A few mixed matched pumpkins ended up scattered around the jar…
The only new item here is that black and white pumpkin which only cost me about two bucks.
A few more pumpkins…
But first, I grabbed an artificial flower I had found at Walmart over the summer and placed it into a decorative perfume bottle I already had.
The bottle works great for this single stem of flowers because it has a very small opening so it keeps the flowers standing straight up as opposed to flopping to the side.
Then those pumpkins…
Two pretty bronze-colored pumpkins join the flowers on my kitchen counter along with…
A ginormous old mug that I filled with some pretty serving utensils.
The two utensils with clear handles are actually from my wedding. Using a few items from my wedding really made this little area extra special and so fun to look at!! (while I wash a sink full of dirty dishes 😅)
I grabbed a few old faux flowers that I have owned for years and dropped them into a small container.
I filled the container with a piece of burlap before dropping in the flowers.
By the way, that small container is actually a cotton swab holder that I wasn’t using for some time. I just removed the lid to use as a small vase.
And there you have it!
A very simple kitchen fall decor…
with a bit of heartwarming memories…
and enough pumpkins…
to make me laugh every time I walk by them.
Thanks for stopping by!
