Fall Dining Room 2012

This morning there is a crispness in the air and I am having my first pumpkin latte of the season while making this post. It is yummy!

Up next in my series of fall decorating reveals is our dining room.
I know some of you...Mom;)...did not like my choice in removing our antique buffet out of the dining room and replacing it with the frenchy hutch but I have to say that I am really loving it in here. I may just have to let that buffet go to its next home. I know Mom is just cringing right now. Sorry Mom.
The hutch has been so much fun to decorate. I am really glad I removed that top shelf.
I wanted to add some height to the hutch per say so I went digging thru all of my fall decor and came up with this wreath that I purchased last year from HomeGoods. I had used it above our fireplace. 
I pulled down this clock from above our front door. It was too tall for here at first because it has a spindle on the top but thankfully it just unscrewed so it all worked out. I love when things go as planned!
I may change this space up a little but for now I just used some pretty pumpkin picks to spice things up.
I left my white dish ware out because it is so versatile. I added the center pumpkin and then a few  flowers in the pitcher.
I also added a little something to the cups. They were originally empty but after staring at them for 30 minutes I HAD to put something in them.
I am really loving how the centerpiece for the table came together. I was racking my brain trying to think of what I could do here. I didn't want to go out and spend any money.
You may think that this pumpkin piece looks vaguely familiar. I had put the base together back in the spring.
While I was putting the bunny on a stick display away it dawned on me how great the base would look with a pumpkin stuck in the middle. Thankfully the bunny stick was removable. To make it look more fallish I added the leaves in with the greenery. I think it came together beautifully.
I adore these leaf votives and bring them out every year. My mom gave them to me after The Hubster and I were married. I may be corrected but I believe these belonged to my grandmother. If not they were my Mama's so either way they will always be special to me.
Instead of candles I placed these .99 cent WM pumpkins on the top of my iron candle sticks. The only thing I did buy this year for in here. I then added the candle rings for that extra pop of color.

I have not had a chance to make this large frame in to a chalk board yet so I just placed my "pumpkins for sale" sign inside of it. I hope I can change it out shortly. Gotta get The Hubster on board though to cut the board for me.

Thanx for stopping by! Up next in the fall reveals I think will be our outside.

  34. Beautiful setting! Too funny about your mom. I am actually the same way. I love "doing" furniture, but for the most part, my heart belongs to primitives so I don't actually have a lot of my own furniture, but each time I do a piece, I keep thinking that I should find a place for it in my own home. I've always thought your hutch was so creatively done so I'm glad you are using it!
