Fall Around the Kitchen

Hi Friends

It's Autumn in my kitchen.

I've added a few simply changes
that speak fall.

I have found that color can bring that feel 
even without an obvious accent like pumpkins and more.

Well, I do have a few faux pumpkins and seasonal accents, 
color changes and texture really help to pull a fall look together.

The Flavors of Fall is one of my favorite seasonal cook books
it finds a place in my changeable kitchen corner.

To the vintage scale,
I topped it again this year with the cork pumpkins I created last year.
If you'd like to view that post and the "how to" create these

Be Thankful on the cutting board is perfect for all seasons.
This little Home Sweet Home plate is painted with such a sweet fall scene.

Adding fall napkins to the counter bring in the fall style.
I found the pumpkin covered dish
in RoundTop, Texas last fall on a October trip.

 To the island,
I simply added a wire basket
filled with a boxwood,
and small pumpkins and pears.

Moving around to the table
I just pull out all my fall colored pretties
make it Autumn.

These fall inspired plates are from Pier 1 
and a great sale several years ago.
They are made in Italy and the name is called A New Harvest!

The similar pattern of fruit is also on the umber glass salad bowl.
A gift of 12 from my son many years ago for Christmas.
Included in the set is the large salad bowl with the same shape and pattern.

Scattered about  the table,
I've added flat fall leaves from the Dollar Tree.
On each leaf I wrote with a Sharpie pen hopeful words like,
thankful, blessings, God, family, grateful, cherish
and so forth.
The skies the limit to the words you choose.

Fanny Burat cups
and her gorgeous painting,
Roses et Volubilis

I love her  painting of roses and florals in vintage aged colors.

The glasses were a find last year at the Dollar tree.
Can't beat these beautiful tall ice tea glasses with fall leaves
in browns, rust and cream.

My centerpiece is a layered candle ring with all the accents of Autumn.
To the center I added 
a Luminaria timer candle that flickers like a real flame.
Comes on each evening at the same time.
It is really welcoming to be out for the evening 
come home,
and have the candle light to show the way.

Some of you have asked where to find these timer candles.
I have found the best types are sold online at,

I found this teapot on a recent junkin trip.
It was brand new still in the box.
I scooped it up mostly because I have the Dutch oven that matches it.
Plus it just looks pretty on the stove for fall~
and for 5 dollars plus new, SCORE!!

You might remember my coffee and tea bar I 
created and tucked in one area of my kitchen counter.
Well I wanted to design a sign for it
and when my dear friend gave me several of these chalk board plaques,
I used one to create 
Fresh Brewed, Coffee or Tea.
I used a stencil for the cup
and the rest is done free hand with a chalk pen.

I love a cozy kitchen for the season
look forward to gathering around the table with family and friends.

Happy Fall everyone.
Hope you enjoy the
BE THANKFUL season!!

Happy Fall to you! What a lovely post. So many pretty fall decorations and a lovely tablescape. I would like the cook book too. The chalk board sign for your coffee station is cute. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

I love these views of your home. The dining table looks wonderful all dressed up. Love the dishes and centerpiece. Pier 1 is a great source isn't it! I like the tablecloth you used too. The coffee chalkboard sign you made up is so cute!

Your kitchen looks cozy and welcoming, and ready for some happy guests! I loved seeing all your pretty Fall touches and vignettes. I spotted another thing that we both have...the rooster. I hope the thank you gift that I sent you for the teacup exchange arrives soon.
Love and blessings, Kitty

Beautiful fall accents for your kitchen, I just love your cork pumpkins too cute! The vintage scale is so neat too! I love cottage scenes so that plate is so pretty as is your pumpkin dish, I love when we can find decorations for the home that we can put out and remind us of our trips away. Love your leaf idea and spreading the thanks over the table, wonderful idea for Thanksgiving dinner :) Thanks for sharing where you found the candles, I love that they can be on timers :)

Sandi Magle said...

Everything is so homey and love the brickwork in your kitchen. Such a textural touch....and gives your room a historical feel. We are doing ours over soon, and I just may have to work in some brick, somewhere. Thanks for the tour, Sandi

Beautiful autumn pieces! I have that same pumpkin sign in your first picture. I couldn't wait to put it out this year.

I hope your weather is crisp and cool my friend! Everything looks great!

Tete said...

Love all of your fun things and I just love Pier 1 ! The dollar tree cannot be beat when you find something cool there, either. It all comes together so pretty. Hope you have a good week. I am waiting for the 1st to start inside. I am afraid that I will get so tired of it before its over. Orange is not one of my favorite colors, not at all. I do like it outside in the leaves and such.
Happy Fall!

Your kitchen is just gorgeous, Celestina! You always do such a beautiful job decorating for the seasons and the holidays! Love all of the details you add, and your chalkboard sign is wonderful! Sure which I could do hand lettering as well as you:) Did you make the cutting board sign? I really love that, too! And the Italian plates are gorgeous! Love the rich colors, they go so well with the rest of your table setting. Thank you for sharing:)

Love your Fall decor in you kitchen. Everything is so pretty!!

Createology said...

Ahh...just visiting your lovely kitchen I feel a sense of Autumn and cooler temps and the rustling of leaves under foot. As I type the Oak leaves are drifting to the ground in a back and forth motion as if they are swaying to music. I am truly Thankful for each and every day. Blessings Dear...

Linda Walker said...

Celestina, your kitchen is decorated beautifully! I love that pumpkin sign. Did you make that? Hint, hint......:)LOL! Gorgeous tablescape too! I can't believe the pretty stuff you can get at the dollar store now. I picked up some lovely stuff from Dollar Tree in April. Have a wonderful rest of the week!

cynthia lee designs said...

I love your cozy Fall kitchen so much that I came back to look again!! The glasses from the Dollar Tree with leaves are so perfect for this time of the year...think I'll have to see if they still carry them.

Jan Hermann said...

Good Morning Celeste - and Happy Fall!! I love your warm and cozy Be Thankful Kitchen! Everything is so pretty and I enjoy the Gooseberry Patch Cookbook you've shown. Of course, you'd already guessed that - since I love to cook!!

It really feels like fall today - high of 60°. Got up at 6:30 to take the Pups out and it was 49° and blustery! The sun is out bright today...won't be this weekend when we have 52° for a high and rain! Oh well, we knew it would be here.

I've been painting for the past several days. Not artistic painting like you do...but room I need to do! I started in Den [covered up a too orange tan color with a warm bronzey-gold color], where the ceilings are 9' tall on one end. I wasn't sure how I'd do on a ladder that far up...but I did very well!! I finished that room...and moved on to the Guest Bathroom. Covered up blue...with the same pretty, light and warm bronzey-gold color I painted the Den. The 2 rooms are connected, which makes the perfect guest room, if needed.

Tomorrow, I'll be painting the Master Bathroom, which is pretty big and has lots to cut in around. I'm painting that the same color as the Master Bedroom Pixie Dust [a very light pink], my favorite color.

Since almost every room in the house is open to the Great Room, Dining Room and Kitchen, I don't want to have too many different colors I'm sticking to the Pixie Dust, Bronzey-Gold, Mossy Green [darker shade] and Buff for the Office...which will follow the laundry room, which follows the painting of the Master Bathroom. I want to be finished with all the painting by the end of October.

Off to clean the house today!!
