Neutral Fall Decor

Hello friends!!!! I don't know about you, but I'm so excited it's fall!! This is my favorite time of year and I want to take full advantage of it since I know it's going to fly by just like the summer did! Last weekend we had pumpkin bread for breakfast, went to Starbucks for their Pumpkin Spice Lattes (yum!), and I did a little fall decorating!!!!

Last year I went with the traditional fall colors for my decorating. This year, I decided I wanted things to be very neutral! Here's the look I came up with!

 I love that the look can be carried over for Thanksgiving too!

 I found these metal tags at Michael's 

 Flower frogs and ironstone butter pats!!! Love!!

 I turned a metal candle tray upside down to elevate my ironstone pitchers. 


 I love these wood pumpkins I found at a garage sale years ago!!










Happy fall y'all!!!

  3. What a spectacular display! I recently made a sign using the metal letter tags from Michaels and have some left over so I love seeing the ways that other people incorporate them into their decor. I must find a flower frog!

    Happy Fall!
