Last year I posted pictures of how I decorated my buffet for fall. I called it a mantel and really, it isn’t. It’s a buffet that is in the entrance of my home that I decorate as one would a mantel, except I live in Miami and fireplaces are not popular, because we have enough heat as it is. I do love having this big piece of furniture that I have had for 13 years, because it gives me beaucoup storage and an opportunity to set the stage for the current season.
This will be a short post because there is not much that goes into putting this together. A few days ago, I shared how I decorated my table for Thanksgiving this year. Since this room borders the dining room, I like to sprinkle a little fall throughout, tying together both rooms.
There were two new items that I was excited to use this year. One was this sweet little “Harvest Blessings” sign that I picked up at Ross for 6.99 (crazy, right?!) and the white pumpkins that spell out FAMILY. With very little money, you can pick up something similar at Ross or Homegoods and add a little autumn feel to your home.
I purchased the leaf garland that you see intertwined on the buffet through Amazon. I actually purchased it with the intention of using it on my Thanksgiving food buffet but I figured it can adorn this table for now. Also, chances are I will tuck it away and when the Thanksgiving frenzy begins, I won’t even remember where I put it. It looks really nice at night, when the lights are on.
(I added the affiliate link above for the garland but it is not currently available, maybe it will come back in stock or you can find something similar on Amazon or elsewhere.)
The wreath on the mirror was already there from the last season – lazy decorating, I know. Hey, maybe I can glue some red berries on it and leave it there for Christmas!? Now that’s an idea!
In a few days I will show you what I did with the family room and living room (opposite to this furniture piece) and I think you will like it. Think vibrant pops of orange! See you in a few days! Harvest Blessings, friends!
