The autumn is finally here..Its time for sunny and rainy days ..cool evenings and shorter days... crimson leaves falling on the ground.... crisp air!!!
It's time to celebrate fall/autumn season!!!!
I decided to make this fall table decor with down to earth, natural accessories..with some things which I feel describe the fall season...
This is a table for two.. I love to do table decor and arrangement for me and my husband .Its fun and adds spice to everyday life. It makes regular and sometimes stressful days very special!!
I used wood, cork and spices to decorate this fall themed table. The highlight of the autumn season is the changing of color of leaves.. some lucky people get to see splendid shades and colors of the leaves in their region.. I see more of crunchy brown and some red leaves floating down and the intricate structure of the trees left bare and naked by the leaves:) The crunchy leaves make a lovely sound when we walk on it!!! I really like it!! That is why I had the major color of the table decor as brown !!
The centerpiece is made of pinecones.. I love to collect pine cones from our walks and strolls...I placed a medium sized pine cones in terracotta pots.Added some flowers and kept them in rattan tray with a scented candle!!
A close up of the swiss dancing couple in their traditional clothes.. It is a Schweizer Heimatwerk (swiss handicraft) product.. hand carved from wood. It is not one piece..The lady can move round and I can arrange them in other dance poses as well.. A special gift from my husband !!!
I really like star anise spice.. It looks so pretty..I arranged 4 star anise around the Japanese bowls..and placed flowers in the soup spoon..lavender for him and yellow for me!!
Browns and reds are the two main colors of fall..though I must admit I see more browns than reds.. exactly in the proportion of red color in my table decor:) I tied a red napkin and 2 cinnamon sticks with a white ribbon..Red color and cinnamon sticks give a festive effect.. This could be perfect idea for Christmas as well!!
The coasters are from Malaysia and have a beautiful design on them and a rattan border to them (you might have noticed them on the walls of my apartment from my earlier post)
I used cork as wine glass coater.. I am planning to paint on them some day when I get time..
On the other side I placed Balinese dolphin wood carvings..!!! So thats my spicy fall table inspired by nature and the seasons
colors and charm..!!
I recently saw pumpkins in the market..I want to do a orange decor next!!!
I will move into our new house in 2 days and am very excited!! Also my furniture has finally arrived by ship and I am so eager to see my dining table and things again!!!
New decor projects... new walls to cover.. new DIYs.. new corners to be decorated... and all the odd corners, bare walls and some not-so-perfect areas are waiting for me to fix them....Yipeeee!!!
