Autumn Lanterns

  I wanted to share some of my Autumn decor I designed this season in my home before I change it at the end of the week for Christmas.  I wanted a pretty and soft feel to the season and used a lovely pastel pallet of autumn colors to do so.  I decided to focus on the lanterns in my dining room and kitchen and how I decorated them.

Dahlias are another favorite flower of mine next to hydrangeas, roses and peonies.  I like the fullness of their flowers and the different sizes and colors they come in.  Though its more a summer flower,  I love how the colors of these faux dahlias work perfectly for an autumn display and around my lantern.

On the top of the cabinet in the dining room I placed two green pumpkins for a simple arrangement.

I followed the same theme of my table on the mantel of the fireplace in the dining room.  I wanted a sort of sweeping appearance of the flowers around the lantern, thus creating a pretty autumn flowery display.

On the kitchen table is yet another lantern with a faux rose hip garland wrapped around it.  I placed small white pumpkins on top of the garland to create an autumn feel to the look.

During early summer I had the wall paper taken down in my kitchen.  I find the new look less busy and brighter.  I’ll post pictures of the kitchen soon when it’s decorated for Christmas.
