Autumn at the Entryway and Kitchen Dining Area

I'm slowly catching up to where I left off last week before we went to greet our new Grandson.
Keeping it simple I added an arrangement to the chest by the entry door.

Sunflowers always seem like the perfect touch for autumn decorating!

Opening the door you'll see I have the same woven basket I've had on here since the spring of 2015.  I had some imitation cattails in my supplies so I spread them along the back.  I added this woven leaf shaped piece I got last year at Michael's and used on the mantel as seen "here" and below.  I removed the bow at the bottom and added it to the front of the basket.  I only have about 3 inches of space between the storm door and the main door so I have to be creative with what I put there.

 I've moved the plant stand Dan just refinished for me over here 
(which I will be doing a post about next).  I had picked up this cute scarecrow in August at Hobby Lobby.  My initial intention was to put him outside on a display but I'm not sure I want to now.  He's perched on a cute little stool I found there too. 

I previously showed this little wheel barrow I found at T.J. Maxx and here it is below all decked out for the season!

 I added some moss, pumpkins and a trailing vine all from Michael's.

 This is from last year and also a T.J. Maxx find.  I set it on a sunflower plate also from T.J.'s last year.
You can see the post from last year of this same area "here".

Same pumpkin plates from Pottery Barn last year with the Cracker Barrel dinner plates that I've had several years.

I like having little touches of farm animals around so I keep my little piggy salt and pepper shakers out and I moved the milk cow creamer over here to the plate rack.  I stuffed some leaves with berries in the glass vase and put my potted sunflower (bought long ago at Pottery Barn) up there too.

I didn't do a lot here except to swap out some fall colored napkins, add some sunflower stemware and the apples to the wired basket.

 The sunflower stemware was from Pier 1 last year.  The napkins are by Park Design.

 The kids gifted me with this rooster wine bottle holder earlier this year so I decided to give him a spot on the Étagère since he has some good autumn colors.

 My little owl arrangement that I showed before "here".

The morning sun floods the dining area which is especially welcome since it's been very rainy lately!  

So that's it for my entryway and kitchen dining area!



  1. Happy Autumn, Liz. Your touches are fall-tastic!!!

  2. Oh so pretty. I love it all but that owl arrangement is so fun.

  3. Liz, beautiful touches, Love that pitcher you purchased at TJ Max and the rooster with the wine bottle is adorable. He make fall of the shelf one day from drinking too much. Wonderful as always


  4. Your sunflowers give a sunny welcome as you enter your home, Liz. All of your touches are so pretty. Your front door is lovely with the basket with your seasonal arrangement. Have a wonderful day. ♥

  5. Lovely post Liz with all of your fall touches. The pitcher is so pretty as is the plates, scarecrow and more. Truly a pretty fall look added to your wonderful home.

  6. Liz, I love all of it. I especially love your door basket arrangement. And not to leave out...your PB plates. Very fall. Sheila

  7. I love to decorate slowly too Liz, a touch here, a touch there, and what a lovely reason to take a "break" for a while, congrats on the new baby! Love the drunken rooster :) I bought those PB plates this year but took them back because they were so small, I do love them though, and they look great on your display. Happy Fall!

  8. I just love your plate rack and how you keep it decorated for every season, Liz! The whole house look dressed perfect for Fall.

  9. Happy Fall! I LOVE Fall! All of your decor is so pretty and welcoming. I thought I was finished decorating but, literally, just did the little chest in our entry:) Great minds..... Love the drapes in the eating area and the chair in the entry too!

  10. Looks great Liz! Love that rooster wine bottle holder. Too cute!

  11. Lovely Fall touches! I'm really liking your Pottery Barn plates.

  12. Liz, everything is so pretty at your house. Your decor is rich and inviting. Our house is for sale right now so I can't do very much. Your pretty things are making me wish I could do more!

  13. Fall has definitely arrived so beautifully in the foyer and dining room....love the door basket too!

  14. It all looks sow arm and cozy, Liz! I smiled at the rooster wine holder and at your darling owl arrangement. The I swooned over the cute little wheel barrow that you've decorated with pumpkins. There's so much to enjoy!
