ic Kathe With an E: All The Leaves Are Brown

All The Leaves Are Brown

And the skies are gray...
(ear worm!  ear worm!)
Here is what we woke to this fine fall morning:
 And here is the view from my office at work:
This not a black and white photo.  It is just that gray and dreary here today. 
Winter, my friends, is here.

Which means, we really didn't have a fall here in the Colorado Rocky Mountain area.

  It may not be fall outside but, by golly, it can be fall inside right??

Heck yeah!

The Halloween decor has been packed away and the house looks like an autumn tree exploded in it LOL!
Fall Decor
This is the front entry table with some of the ceramic pumpkins I have collected over the past few years, bought on sale and on clearance.
I love the Happy Harvest plate that is new this year from Hobby Lobby (50% off of course). It's kind of an homage to Mr. B's roots of growing up on a farm.

The stairway is decorated with garland from the Dollar Tree and wisps of fall toned faux grass I tied up with twine and hot glued some leaves onto. 

Of course, I had to do up a fall tablescape too!
Fall Tablescape
The tablecloth is a recent find from Burlington Coat Factory.  I had totally forgotten that BCF has awesome home goods in addition to clothes! The colors are just perfect for fall! And that paisley pattern <swoon> that just sealed the deal there!

I layered a gold charger with $1.00 "as is" over sized plates from Ikea and then my go to red salad plates.  The green napkins (.25 each from Goodwill) are tied with a piece of twine and topped with a faux leaf.  The flatware was purchased with a gift card received by joining the Cost Plus World Market Explorer club. 

The centerpiece is more fall garland wrapped around a vase filled with leaves and a candle (that is actually raised by a shot glass in the vase LOL). I "borrowed" the rustic candlesticks from the entry table, wrapped with some berry garland and topped with rust colored candles I have had forever.

And of course, I can't do the table and not do the buffet!

The Green mercury glass candle goblets were another find at Burlington Coat Factory at only $4.99 each! They can be used for other seasons/ holidays too so I think they were a must have (am I justifying well here?)! And Mr. Pheasant (or grouse as Mr. B refers to him) once again has a starring role, front and center.

The large amber plate is from a box lot I won at an auction we attended last spring.

Max even let me dress up the table that covers his hiding place

With only 22 days until Thanksgiving and 53 days until Christmas I am happy to have a bit of fall around me, even if it is blowing snow and only 27 degrees outside right now!

  2. Hi Kathe. Everything looks so pretty and inviting and fallish! I really like your idea of the grass bunches and leaves on the staircase. I agree with you - don't look out the window and you'll never know that winter has arrived. ;o) Take care.

  3. Love the gorgeous look of autumn you've created! Beautiful. :-)

  4. Way to go, Kathe! You definitely have "fall" indoors...even if Mother Nature says otherwise outdoors. lol

    Your decor is lovely , very inviting!
    Pretty table. Love that tablecloth. I always forget to check the home section there too. None close by, but I could manage a trip on the way home from CTS! :)

    Great colors, Kathe, very cozy and warm.

  9. Hi Kathe! When the last snow melted, I thought that might be the end of it for awhile. Now, it's becoming a Wednesday tradition!

    Your tablecloth is gorgeous!I've been to BCF twice in the last few weeks and never saw the treasures you found. I was a little distracted by their Christmas decorations! All your vignettes are warm and cozy looking and fall is definitely alive and well in your home!

  17. Thank you for posting your inside Autumn! Here in CT it is also winter. Old man winter came in hard last weekend and crush the state. We had 4 days without power and some here still don't have it. I felt like we missed out on Fall so I lit my pumpkin spice candles.

  18. when we lived in denver
    i always thought there were only two seasons:
    summer and winter
    and either could happen at any time of the year!
