Decorating for Fall



I went shopping with Kerry last weekend and fell in love with the Fall decor inside the stores! I was excited to come home and start decorating our home! I like to keep it simple, and stick to natural elements, and at this time of year that is easy! The ornamental squash, paired with berries from my parents yard, look great placed in my new two toned IKEA bowl.

I couldn’t resist picking up these berry branches from my local grocery store for our dining room table. But, I’m not sure what these branches are called, so if you know please do share!

We are celebrating a long Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, so I’ve prettied it up just in time! We’re heading out to buy some pumpkins, having a hotdog roast with friends, and attending multiple turkey dinners this weekend! Should be a good one! I hope yours is too! What have you got in store?

    So Beautiful Rosa. Have you ever tried spider dogs? When roasting your hot dogs, buy all beef if and split each end by cutting it into fours lengthwise, leaving about two inches in the middle. As you roast the dog starts to curl up and creates four crispy legs on each side. So yummy. Give it a try…not sure you will go back. Voted Hugs…

      We just tried them tonight with the neighbours and all the kids… it was such a huge hit! There is no going back! 🙂 Thanks so much Sheri!

    I am hosting a dinner for 15 (yikes) so I’ll be doing my decorating today. The branches are so lovely so I’ll be looking for those in the grocery store.

      Have fun decorating!! That’s my favourite part! They were stocked at the local IGA, in case you have an IGA near you! 🙂

    Ahh I love fall – the berry banches are called Snowberry or if you want to get technical Symphoricarpos albus.

    Sent a vote your way – fingers still crossed 🙂 !

    Your photos are lovely, and so very crisp! Happy Thanksgiving! We are hosting between 10 and 22, just waiting on last minute numbers.

    We’re off to dinner with friends on Saturday, and then hosting a small dinner here on Sunday… I haven’t even begun to decorate, but hopefully tomorrow that creative spark will ignite 😉 Somehow I haven’t quite caught up with the calendar – how did it suddenly become Thanksgiving weekend? Love your snowberry branches, and what a great idea to put the IKEA bowl to use – it’s perfect!

      Thanks Sheila! 🙂
      I hope you had a great dinner on Sunday. We just got back from our second, and I think I need to detox off turkey and pumpkin cheesecake now! :0

      Thanks Nicole! It’s fun having more time to blog now that my youngest is in full time school! Hope you had a great long weekend too! 🙂

    Rosa you have decorated beautifully!!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, I know I am looking forward to a big turkey dinner after eating croissants, strong coffees, foie gra and cheese for 20 days. If I see another baguette, I’m gonna be sick.

    • Rosa

      That’s not possible! There is no such thing as too much French food!!! Bite that tongue of yours! 😉 Hope it was a good one Tracey!

  • Tristan Lindsay

    Beautiful pictures! You are so far ahead of me in decorations!
