The Dinning Rooms Autumn Look

My final bit of autumn decorating took place in the Dinning Room.

I wanted a centerpiece that was simple and easy to move out of the way because truthfully more often than not the table is filled with half finished projects and homework!

I thought a simple bucket filled with pretty mums and a few pumpkins would do the trick.   I reused a ruffled drop cloth table runner that has become a favorite of mine and a small footed cutting board that I made a while back to add just a little extra touch of texture.

On the shelf behind the table a mixture of candles, silver and pumpkins tie in with the hutch around the corner.  Even tried my hand at drawing a pumpkin on the chalk board - funny right, my drawing skills are not so great.

I'm loving the simplicity and the way the silver glows in the afternoon sunlight.

The small desk off to the side of table received a little attention too.

I flipped the wooden crate upside down to use as a platform for a display. The arrangement looks more balanced with the height from the lamp on the other side of the desk this way which I liked.

The lantern is one I've had for years but I find is still a favorite.  I think it looks great with the books and the painted pumpkin.

With this room completed and can officially say I'm done with my Autumn decorating. Yipppeee!

How about you?
