Finally - Getting With the Program

While snooping around the land of blog, I noticed how so many have already decorated for Fall, or at least started doing so. So I decided I needed to get with the program or might as well just wait until time to decorate for Christmas. Not a lot of creativity going on, on the dining table, as I used the same items I used a couple of years ago.
Even replaced the daisy on the tieback with a burgundy colored mum.
Also used items I already had on hand to add a touch of Fall to the counter. The candle has a "yummylicious" lemon smell. Not a Fall scent , but works for me.....
May or may not add a bit more around the house later on.

ETA: My Fall header was made up from some photos I took a couple of years ago. You can see in the middle pic, this years table is almost identical.

At least you've started for Fall. I just am beginning to think about it. Need to get busy tho.

You're way ahead of me. When our temps drop another 20 degrees I might get into the fall spirit.
Such a pretty table setting you've created. Thanks for the inspiration.

Claudia said...

Good for you, Glenda! I haven't even started. I think I'm still clinging on to summer. I did see some mums yesterday and I thought seriously about purchasing them! Does that count?

Thanks so much for joining in!

I really like the gourds and pinecones in the glass... really pretty. :)

I haven't even begun to do the fall decorating and I was noticing today that one of the powder rooms has a branch of cherry blossoms in it!!! Oh dear!! Maybe I can just leave it out for next spring. I also like citrus candles. Linda

I haven't done one bit of fall decorating!! I'm busy with the outside. I feel like we're going to get an early (and long)winter. So I want to get my plants and veggies in the ground before I do anything inside.

I don't have one fall-related thing yet. The stores are filled with mums, pumpkins, etc., but I think I'll wait another week or so. I'm just not feeling it yet :)

I love all of your pretty Fall decor. I've only done a few things but I decorate all the time. I never finish! lol

Your table centerpiece is very pretty with the mirror and ceramic pumpkins. I've been decorating for about a week. At first, it felt early; with the cold snap, it feels right on time.

Donna Heber said...

Your fall decor is so pretty as well as the moasic you created with it. Have a wonderful week.

Your centerpiece is beautiful, love it. I am still holding onto summer, not letting go yet. I do like to see everyone's creative decorating! Have a great week!

You are thinking as I am to get the fall decorations out now. Lovely display. Valerie

Not so ready for fall as of yet. I am still enjoying the last sunshine we get §;-)

I am way too long from you. Hope to catch up with you soon.

It looks great Glenda! I love this season and am soo glad that it's finally here. So yes, I'm in full fall mode for decorating. I even started to add some Halloween things too - I have 2 nieces coming on Sunday for the day and wanted to make the house festive!

Love your header too!

Using what you already have is wonderful, and it all looks fabulous. I am not doing a lot either. Trying to learn the art of restraint. That is hard. Thanks tone for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Lorrie Orr said...

Your table looks very fall-ish. I'm glad others are decorating already so I can get some ideas. It's been so warm and sunny here that we're hanging onto sunshine for as long as we can. I haven't really started fall decorating yet.

Kim said...

Love your touches of Fall Glenda. And you take such great pictures! I'm totally lacking in that department. I haven't even begun to think about decorating for Fall yet and at this rate I might even miss out on Christmas!
xoxo,
Kim

Haworth said...

I haven't yet started my fall decorating, Glenda, but I'm getting very inspired by the beautiful images I've seen here and on others' blogs! I think this weekend I'll start to bring out the autumn finery. Take care!

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

It looks pretty odd at my house. I got out the fall things, but I left room for the Halloween things and I haven't gotten them out of the storage room yet. So, I have lots of empty spots!

Jann Olson said...

Just when I finish for Fall It'll be time to turn around and decorate for Halloween. lol! Oh well, it will be needing a good dusting by then. I think your Fall vignette turned out lovely. Doesn't matter if we use items from year to year. I have cherished things that I just can't part with. The Mum tieback was a clever idea. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
Hugs,
Jann
