“What do you use to mend a jack-o-lantern? A pumpkin patch.”- Unknown

What is it about Fall that we love so much. If you read the quote above, you’ll know that corny humor brings out the “Fall” in me. Fall has bright yellow leaves, golden apples, beautiful flowers, candles and bird’s nests. Fall is wooden bowls filled with harvest goodies. This week I added some Fall to my entranceway.

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”- Henry David Thoreau

I found the table runner above on a Thrift Store outing. It’s quite light and airy with pale scattered pumpkins surrounded by green vines and brown accents. It was the inspiration for the entranceway vignette.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Edith Wharton

I added a candlestick in dark wood banded in etched metal holding a beautiful golden pillar candle. The wood is similar in tone to the mirror on the wall behind it.

“Birds learn how to fly, never knowing where the flight will take them.” -Mark Nepo

This little bird house sits at the base of the candle. I love the texture and color that allows the bird house to stand on it’s own and also fit in with the brown of the candlestick. Don’t you love to watch the flocks of migrating birds as they fly further south. It’s another sign of Fall.

A plate of apples, an open fire, and a jolly good book are a fair substitute for heaven.

Lucy Maud Montgomery

I gathered some apples and small pumpkins together in a beautiful wooden bowl and placed them in front of the mirror. Now I’ll be able to see their beauty twice. The golden colors pick-up the color in the candle and exude a warmth that makes you smile.

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus

Hydrangeas are gathered in a dark brown twig basket bound with a beautiful Fall ribbon. Flowers from the garden are always an inspiration and have a place in any season.

“This is the year of sowing seeds; plant intentionally, plant value, plant what you, yourself, would want to harvest.”SANITA BELGRAVE

Open your homes and your hearts to all the wonders and blessings of the Fall Season as we put the hard work of Spring and Summer behind us. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the harvest of our labors and share them with our Family and Friends. Have a wonderful week and thanks for visiting.

  1. Very nice! My entryway is chronically crowded with boxes/bags that are coming in or going out. Yours is so restful! I loved the table runner!

    1. It’s a little easier to keep this entrance uncluttered, Kathy, as we normally go out through the garage. The runner was a Thrift Store find from last year. I love the Fall colors. Thanks for stopping by and sharing. Have a great week.

  2. There may be two comments from me as my laptop did something funky! Anyway, I think your entryway is lovely! I love the way your quotes tied in with the decorations. This will be our second fall in this house, and I’m still struggling with lighting and such. Fall is my second favorite season to decorate. I have bins and bins of pumpkins and am waiting just a bit before bringing them out! I hope you have a wonderful week!


    1. It takes awhile to settle into a new home. Just finding things is a challenge but it is also really fun because you can use old decorations in new ways in new spaces. thanks for stopping by and sharing, Marsha. Have a wonderful week and good luck with the pumpkins.

  3. I love the hydrangeas! They seem elegant and just make the atmosphere elevated.
