12 of the easiest ideas for creating a simple autumn vignette

The other day I ran around like a crazy woman.

Moving pumpkins and pinecones and gold candlesticks off the mantel 
to make way for a little sprinkling of Halloween for a special project.
And this week, 
I am moving bits of Halloween to make way for all things Merry. 
The seasons seem to change so quickly this time of year 
and so does seasonal decor.

On top of that- it is a busy time of year and so simple decor is key.
I always keep it simple honestly. 
Just pumpkins and natural touches for autumn 
and I am a huge fan of vignettes.

Vignettes are like little 'moments' in a room. 
They are not everything all together like the whole enchilada...
 they are just a slice of deliciousness.

And they have a way of adding that perfect touch of seasonal charm 
without being overwhelming.

In the cupboard for example-
 the whole cupboard doesn't need to be filled with pumpkins to say 'autumn'
Just one thing says it perfectly-
 so you can feel good about keeping it simple. 

Every year about this time, 
I share a round up of ideas for quick and easy decor- and today-
 it is
 12 one stop keep it simple ideas that you can do to sprinkle a bit of autumn
in your home right now. 
In your entry, in the kitchen, in the living room, in the cupboard, in the bedroom, on the porch- 
you name it.
