Simple Fall decor in the kitchen was on the menu for this year.
The Great Room and the Sunroom flank the kitchen,
and Fall decor in these rooms are in full bloom,
so it was best that the kitchen showed subtle signs of Fall in the air.
I acquired a collection of Bakelite flatware from my friend Martha.
I knew I wanted to display it and when I saw how Kathysue from Good Life of Design,
displayed hers, I had to display them in the same way! I did give you a preview of this
in a post that I wrote about Bakelite HERE,
in which I had two bouquets of Bakelite.
I combined the collection of Bakelite into one larger ironstone pitcher
in this grouping of three pitchers. All ironstone pitchers
were acquired from Mary Alice’s shop.
Stems of burnished gold berries are the perfect addition
of “just enough” Fall decor in the large ironstone pitcher.
I grabbed my double handled soup bowls from the cupboard
and placed mini mums in them from Trader Joe’s. They fit perfectly in the bowls.
The vintage scale that I purchased in France.
A simple embellishment of a pumpkin in the ironstone bowl is all that it needed.
Mums, pumpkins, stems of berries, and a bouquet of Bakelite
adorn the kitchen for the Fall season. Just enough.
I was going to move on to my back porch and add some pretties of Fall;
however, we are watching what Hurricane Matthew will do.
Although will not have any chance of a direct hit, but may have lots of wind and rain.
So, this weekend, we may be taking a lot of outdoor furniture into a safe area.
I want to send my thoughts and prayers to those who will be in the path of this most
devastating storm. Many of my family members live in Florida are in the direct path of this storm.
They are hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
