Last year I ran across (on Domaine.com I think) an article about just hitting the high spots with your holiday decor and that should be quite enough. Maybe it was Apartment Therapy. I don't remember. But -- anyway, it is. Enough. I already showed you my minimalist 'early Fall' efforts.
|I wasn't too sure about putting Fall colors in these cachepots...|
|I think it looks pretty good|
So now that it is actually Fall and we have had a couple of cool nights and days, not to mention the first pot of chili of the season is on the high octane burner as I write, I decided to throw a couple of other things out to celebrate the season. These will stay till time to hit the high spots with a few Christmas things. That would be after Thanksgiving, people!
|A pot of mums and a pumpkin on the porch|
Basically that article said something to the effect that the "high spots" are the mailbox; outside front entry or door, i.e. the porch in the South; the inside front entry or foyer; the dining room table and/or sideboard; the living room mantel (and please note that I spelled mantel correctly -- "mantle" is a cloak or shawl -- I just can't resist a little teaching and preaching here and there); something in the kitchen; and... I didn't do the mailbox, but I hit the all other spots! Plus I put some wheat stalks on the bar, and there is a little mum on the back porch table.

|On the kitchen counter -- I ate what's missing!|
|I wonder if I should paint this rooster ---|
what do you think?

Are you a minimalist or maximalist when it comes to seasonal decor?
