I fell for it…
Fell for what?
That fruit that seems to show up in practically every home during the fall…
Those darn cute pumpkins!
If you read my last post 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 extra 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…
A few more pumpkins…
Two bronze-colored pumpkins (a target find from a few years ago) end up on my kitchen counter top along with…
A ginormous old mug with some serving utensils and a simple faux flower from Walmart.
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 clear out a sink full of dishes 😅)
I grabbed a few old flowers that I’ve had 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!
