Romantic Autumn vignette

Don't you love simple seasonal touches in a room?
Something that you can just grab a few pieces
to put together something in a few minutes?

Something that takes just a few minutes and warms up your home.

Something like a beautiful pearly shell tray from HomeGoods
(this is a new piece- a gift from HomeGoods that I adore!)

Filled with just a handful of acorns

a couple little white pumpkins 

and fading roses in a couple gathered 
vintage bottles & china

I am all about simple Fall
with a soft color palette and a bit of romance

Someone asked recently what you can do to get your home ready for last minute guests
So with the holidays and entertaining coming 
I am planning to share a few ideas over the next couple weeks
of easy ways to add simple touches of the season to warm up your rooms for company in a hurry.

Like a simple vignette of collected bottles filled with a few blooms
 placed in a tray with little pumpkins and acorns.

Simple, simple, simple.

It was a busy weekend over here- filled with zombies ;) We took the kids to Fright Fest at Six Flaggs 
and they enjoyed the creepy Halloween decor and all those zombies running around
I stayed clear and watched the kids enjoying mostly.
Frankly, those zombies tend to violate your personal space and irritate you. ;)
 I am catching up on a few things today
and enjoying the gorgeous warm Fall weather we are having.
Hope your week is off to a great start!!
