Fall Home Tour -Highland House 2019 Welcome to my home and thank you for joining me on this years Fall Home Tour -2019. I hope you enjoy these glimpses into my Highland, Utah home. I'll link all sources and information at the bottom of the post. Entryway and Front Porch Decor I loved the pumpkin tower obelisks that I created last season so I decided to use them again with a slight change. Instead of using larger pumpkins at the base, I used small pumpkins and gourds. If you'd like to see last seasons decor post click here: Fall Home Tour -Highland House I planted mums and other perennials in the pots with the pumpkin towers and flower pots by the front door. Indoor Entryway For the entryway I created a floral arrangement in a blue and white ginger jar with dark blue, burnt orange, and ivory flowers. I bought these furry ivory pumpkins at Gatehouse No1 in Orem Utah. They are so soft! The Living Room I created another floral arrangement in
When I saw these white ceramic turkeys at Pottery Barn (linked at the bottom of the post) a few months back, I knew I wanted to create a tablescape around them. I envisioned a rustic table for Thanksgiving with a green garland and some velvet pumpkins throughout. I started with a tan linen table runner and layered faux green leafed stems, eucalyptus, and some smaller faux sage bunches. I added in a few small white flower stems and some tan colored pinecone picks. I used some rustic candlestick holders with white candles and some turkey shaped salt shakers. I also found some matching turkey place card holders that I'll put place cards in when I have finalized the guest list for Thanksgiving. For the places setting, I used light, neutral colors to create a rustic feel to the table. I used a pretty napkin to add some color and texture and rustic flatware. I used my silver rimmed stemware that meshed perfectly with the other things on the table. I filled the
Fall Home Tour - Highland House 2018 Welcome to my Fall Home Tour of the Highland House!!
I've been excited to share this fall home tour of the Highland house! I hope you'll find inspiration here on how you can decorate your own home! I haven't always had a nice home and I'm a big believer in creating beauty no matter what your home looks like. Whether it was the apartments I managed and lived in (with 3 kids) while my husband was in dental school or the Army housing we were assigned, I always tried to create a beautiful home with what limited money and resources I had at the time.
It just takes some creativity and some DIY to add some beauty to your home. One of the reasons I started sharing photos of my home was to create inspiration on how to make a house feel like a home. Creating warmth in my home has always been something I've enjoyed doing. I hope you'll feel the warmth too! I tend to
Pumpkin Themed Fall Tablescape
When I saw these cute pumpkin dishes at HomeGoods, I knew I had to do a Pumpkin Themed Fall Tablescape. I often search for unique dishes for my tablescapes and when I found these cute pumpkin plates and bowls, I envisioned this festive table with different types of pumpkins.
The one downside with HomeGoods is that there is not always a full set of any place setting. After searching six different stores in two different states, I finally had enough for 10 place settings! Whew! It was a lot of work tracking these dishes down but it has been so worth it. My sweet husband actually found half of them for me! He's a keeper!
I did two different tablescapes with these dishes, mainly because I forgot to use the pumpkins the first go-round! In the first attempt, I used the pumpkin dinner plate, salad plate, and bowl. For the middle
Sage Green and White Fall Transitional Tablescape
As we start heading towards fall, I thought it would be nice to create a neutral tablescape that still works for summer but also works as a fall transitional tablescape. I had invited three different families over for “Lasagna Night” and wanted to try out a new recipe I had for peaches since they were in season. I planned on having about twenty guests. I decided to use the outdoor table for the kids' table, and the indoor table for the adults. I also utilized the bar for four more place settings for some of the bigger kids. (Holly's Homemade Lasagna Recipe) (Fresh Peach Dessert)
I pulled out my sage green dishes, white dishes, all my tan and white napkins, and wicker napkin rings. I also pulled out some woven placemats that mixed nicely with both sets of dishes and linens. I played around with the different plates and linens to see what looked nice
