Enhance Your Kitchen With Touches of Fall

We partnered with Lindsay Hines from the blog Whimsy Girl Design to show you how to bring a little fall into your kitchen.

From jeans and boots to pumpkins and hot chocolate … fall is by far my favorite time of year! I think we all get the urge to create a cozy, comfortable environment in our homes when the weather gets cooler and the leaves start to change color. I usually break out all my fall décor at the end of September (I may sneak out a few things here and there before that) and I love the way it creates a warm, inviting feel in my home. I think we can all agree that the kitchen tends to be the gathering spot for friends and family members at holiday get-togethers and parties. I am excited to invite you into my home and show you how I brought touches of fall into my kitchen.

Create Vignettes

Creating small vignettes within the room is a great way to display décor without overdoing it. I created several vignettes in my kitchen using some of my favorite Tuesday Morning finds paired with items I already owned. What I love about most of the items I used is that they can be used throughout the year, just styled different ways!

This vignette is the perfect addition to my butler’s pantry. I started off with a vintage crate I already owned. I added a sea grass pumpkin (just $9.99 at Tuesday Morning, compared to $19.99 elsewhere) to a cake stand I already had, then I used some moss and pinecones to complete the look. For the rest of the vignette I used a few boxed faux herbs from Tuesday Morning ($4.99, compared to $10 elsewhere) and a cute dried boxwood topiary ($6.99, compared to $16 elsewhere) to add a touch of green to the space. Dried florals and pinecones finished off the look. It is one of my favorite areas!

The next vignette I styled was the area around my cooktop, which just so happens to be the focal point of the room since the tall vent hood attracts all the attention.

This was very simple since I already had the key pieces; I just needed to add a few fun touches to update the look. I added some mini-pumpkin vase filler to my #3 mason jar from Tuesday Morning. This is an item I have owned for years and love. I believe I paid $2.99 for it … the good news is I just saw several in my local store so they still carry them!

On the other side of the cooktop, I used an adorable cream pitcher from Tuesday Morning ($5.99, compared to $9.99 elsewhere) and filled it with cinnamon sticks. After adding a few small pumpkins, the area has a new fall look! The best part is that most of these items are things you can use every day, not just for fall!

Our kitchen island is another place that needed a seasonal update. I already had the plants and artichokes so I added some small pumpkins to transform the spot from summer to fall! I found these cute mason jar mugs at Tuesday Morning and knew they would be perfect for the area ($7.99/set of 4, compared to $20 elsewhere). I also love the fact they are functional, too! I added some festive gray and white paper straws to finish the look ($3.99/50 pack, compared to $12.95 elsewhere)! This is one of the first areas you see when you walk in our kitchen, so I love the fact it looks so welcoming!

Before we move onto the breakfast nook, I want to share one more small vignette with you. This area didn’t necessarily need any décor, but I wanted to add a little something to it. The white, wooden bucket ($6.99, compared to $20 elsewhere) from Tuesday Morning made the perfect planter for a little fern! I added a few pumpkins to the area, and it was done. Simple and easy!

10072014-WGD-fallkitchen-IMG_1553

Creating small vignettes is a great way to add touches of fall throughout a room without being overwhelmed with décor. Shop your home, use what you have and just add in a few new things to complete the look!

Set a Fall Table

Whether you are hosting a party or want to treat your family to a fun dinner, Tuesday Morning has some great items to help create a fabulous fall table! While our table does not stay like this all the time, I do like to dress it up for entertaining.

10072014-WGD-fallkitchen-IMG_1534

To set the table, I used simple white plates I bought at Tuesday Morning several years ago. I added some gray linen napkins (just $5.99/set of 4, compared to $14.99 elsewhere) paired with placemats and napkin rings that I already owned. Of course, you saw the mason jar mugs above … filled with apple cider, they were the perfect addition to my fall table!

10072014-WGD-fallkitchen-IMG_1538

To finish off each place setting, I used these numbered dip bowls from Tuesday Morning (just $3.99, compared to $8.99 elsewhere) and filled them with candy corn! What is fall without a sweet treat?

10072014-WGD-fallkitchen-IMG_1545

The simple centerpiece was created using a galvanized bucket, gourds and moss I already owned. I found these glass hurricane candleholders at Tuesday Morning ($9.99, compared to $19.99 elsewhere) and knew they would be the perfect addition to my table. After adding mini-pinecones as filler (only $2.99, compared to $7.99) and candles, I was done with my centerpiece!

When I am not entertaining, I simply remove the actual place settings but keep the centerpiece on the table. Keep reading to see another way I used the dip bowls … they might just be my new favorite things!

To finish off my breakfast nook, I added a few touches of fall to my existing décor. The “HARVEST” banner was a DIY project. I picked up the pack of premade banner cutouts from Tuesday Morning for just $1.99, compared to $3.99 elsewhere, and used a chalk marker for the letters. I love the fact that I can save the letters and create additional banners for different times of the year!

After adding a few small pumpkins to my shelves, I added a dried wheat bundle to a pitcher I picked up at Tuesday Morning a few months ago ($19.99, compared to $45 elsewhere) to complete the look.

Just a few touches here and there made a huge impact!

Use Functional Decorating

The last few areas I want to show you are those that are functional yet create a warm, inviting room.

Our coffee bar is an area I use every single day. I absolutely love this area because it is so functional but it also looks nice. Just for fun, I used some of the items shown above, changed it up and created a hot chocolate bar! Perfect for entertaining or a special treat for your kids!

The numbered dip bowls, striped straws and creamer pitcher were all used in other areas … but work perfectly here in the hot chocolate bar as well!

Well that wraps up my fall kitchen tour! I hope you enjoyed taking a look around my kitchen and found some inspiration for your own home. Be sure to visit our Fall Kitchen Decor pin board for more ideas!

    Yesterday, I purchased the Clock/Magazine rack, I asked the Sales person, was there another part to it and she said that was all that came with it. I have just discovered, that what was missing, was the back!! There was no bottom and I kept wondering on what would go there and again, I discovered it was the calendar. I live an hour ago from the nearest store. What can I do to get the finish product?? Thank you, Donna

      If you’d like to see if another store has one, your best bet would be to call your local store. Happy shopping!
