Fall Decor-Too Darn Hot!

by Sherry

I have loved seeing the gorgeous Fall decorations popping up all over the blog and I have been itching to drag out the pumpkins and my other fall decor.  The only thing stopping me is that is it still so darn hot here!
Today I went up to the attic and started pulling things out of the boxes and thinking about how I would use them in a vignette.  In the mean time I thought I would show you one of my displays from last year.  Enjoy!

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to have my new Fall decor up in the next couple of weeks.
xo, Sherry

Very pretty! I'm lovin' the pumpkins on the candlesticks!

I love the way you have everything displayed in the planter!

It looks beautiful Sherry. I'm looking forward to seeing what you put together this year.

We've had some great weather for Fall decorating, lately. Cooler temps sure makes the Fall decor mood better.

Jane September 6, 2010 - 10:25 pm

That is a lovely Fall display. I'm debating how to put up my fall decorations as well, I want to start, but feel like I need to at least get thru Labor Day weekend. So I guess it's time now! Love how you put those little pumpkins on the candlesticks, so simple yet sweet. Gives me a perfect reason to pick up a couple of the ones I saw at the dollar store.

Hi Sherry,
Your display is gorgeous! I love all the rich colors and the oversized acorns! Beautiful! 🙂

Sherry September 6, 2010 - 10:58 pm

Love your arrangements. Fall is so beautiful and all of the colors just pop. It is still a little hot here too. I will relish cooler temps.

It is just stunning. I love the idea of the pumpkins on the candlesticks. I hope you don't mind if I borrow this. Your urn with the leaves and the acorns and gords is lovely. So pretty. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Hi Sherry,
It's going to be hard outdoing last years since it was so beautiful. However, knowing you and your creative talents, you'll do something gorgeous that I will be envious.

I'm totally crazy about those wicker wrapped wine jugs. My husband started buying them and I wrangled them away from him. Very vintage and euro chic!

Shelia September 6, 2010 - 11:55 pm

It's all very gorgeous! Wish I could feel a little fall coolness in the air! 🙂
Be a sweetie,

So pretty! I love your fall decor! I'm not ready for fall and will resist for a few more weeks. It is just too gorgeous outside the past few days!

Sue September 7, 2010 - 12:41 am

Sherry, I really want a wrapped wine jug like yours but I haven't been able to find one locally. Your urn filled with fall finery is just gorgeous. I think we are both showing similar leaf bowls today. 🙂

Shelly September 7, 2010 - 1:02 am

Ackk, Sherry, my comment FROZE so I hope you don't get this twice!
Tablesettings for Fall are lovely! Like Debra, I love the Wine Jugs! Very fun!

I'll trade you the HEAT for our Rain! This is usually our most gorgeous time of year here in Washington State,,,,,,,,Yeah, well, will get back to you on that!

Hugs and love,

Hi Sherry, Great display for fall! It has cooled off here this week but being Ca. it can change at a moments notice. Thank's for sharing….Julian

Shelia September 7, 2010 - 1:31 am

Hi Sherry! Oh, I love seeing your fallness, even from last year! It's too hot here too but I had better get busy with getting my home ready! 🙂
Be a sweetie,

Love this! I actually just ran into this tablescape when browsing "In Between Naps on the Porch" and I LOVED it.

Sonia September 7, 2010 - 1:37 am

Hi Sherry,

Well your appetizer of fall decor is simply beautiful! Can't wait to see what else you will share! I love the pumpkins on the candlesticks and the fall leaves tucked her and there on your table. Gorgeous tablescape! Happy Week!

I love this, Sherry! It is beautiful! I can't wait to see what you do for this year….Christine

Christie September 7, 2010 - 2:22 am

This is just lovely and gets me inspired! I can't even bring myself to go into the shed attic…it is still so hot! Soon enough! Have a great week! Christie at Three Pixie Lane

[email protected] September 7, 2010 - 2:24 am

I agree with you! Last year I was fully fall decorated by mid August, this year it's still SO DARN HOT, I haven't pulled a thing out to decorate with! It just doesn't feel like fall, maybe if I start decorating the weather will catch on and finally cool off for us!

Deserae September 7, 2010 - 3:46 am

Beautiful! Can't wait to see what you come up with for this year!! It is waaaay too hot to even think about fall decor here. I imagine I won't be putting anything out until closer to October?!?!?! I'm so ready for fall :o)

Yellow Rose Arbor September 7, 2010 - 4:48 am

Very pretty! It's still too hot here in FL too! I still need to get my fall stuff out of the attic!


The Polka Dot Closet September 7, 2010 - 5:10 am

I am in florida and I agree with you!!! I just can't get in the swing of fall when I can't even get my air conditioner to cool the house below 80 degrees!


Vanessa September 7, 2010 - 5:37 am

That is so beautiful Sherry! I've been struggling with what to do on my dining room table and this gave me so much GREAT inspiration! Thank you so much for that and also for becoming a "follower" on my blog! 🙂

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions September 7, 2010 - 10:37 am

We've just started with that little hint of coolness in the air here, Sherry. Actually, I think that's thanks to "Earl" coming through. I just started to bring some of my stuff out to look it over.

Yvonne @ StoneGable September 7, 2010 - 11:49 am

I'd repeat last years! Beautiful and so full of Autumn's best!

cityfarmer September 7, 2010 - 11:51 am

just found two wrapped flasks at the thrift!
a pair, tied together with twine … 10.00
I'm crushing over this stuff …

your fall decor is rockn' my world

Hope Filled Living September 7, 2010 - 12:45 pm

Very pretty Sherry!
It's cooling down here in Michigan…finally!

Paula September 7, 2010 - 12:47 pm

Hi Sherry! Your fall decor is perfect…I'd be bringing it back this year too:)
I scrolled down to your french document modge podge project…WOW, so awesome! you've inspired me to play hooky today! lol:)

she dreams big! September 7, 2010 - 2:14 pm

How will you ever top your tabletop this year? Oh wait, you are Sherry, decorator extrodenair, so of course you'll come up with something even more gorgeous!

It is much cooler here and I am hoping for an Indian summer. I am a warm weather kind of gal!

Now, get those boxes unpacked and show us how to decorate for fall!

Blondie's Journal September 7, 2010 - 10:35 pm

Eveything looks so pretty and fall~ish, Sherry! I love the pumpkins on the candle sticks. I hope the markets have more white pumpkins this year…everywhere I went last year they were sold out. They are so neat looking.

I am slowly picking up fall things here and there and then I will do it all at once. After lots of heat we are finally getting some cool weather here in the Midwest…but that could change in a minute!! ;-D

Happy TT Tuesday


debsheartandhome September 8, 2010 - 4:50 am

Wow, I'm in awe!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses September 8, 2010 - 2:21 pm

It really is hard to get into the spirit of fall when the temps are still so hot. It's finally cooling off here, thank goodness. Love your displays! So pretty. 🙂

1bellastager September 8, 2010 - 3:51 pm

Gorgeous table display!

Jen September 8, 2010 - 1:57 pm

I can't wait to see this years decorations!

[email protected] Charm September 8, 2010 - 3:19 pm

Love those jugs and the cute tags! Maybe next week will be cooler:)


vignette design September 8, 2010 - 4:18 pm

Your table is gorgeous Sherry. You are inspiring me to embrace fall! I'm holding out until September 22 though!

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row September 8, 2010 - 5:24 pm

I'm so jealous of those who know how to set a beautiful table!

[email protected] September 8, 2010 - 7:44 pm

Cooler weather is definitely an asset when it comes to fall decorating. Those attics get awfully hot.
I can't imagine how you would improve upon last years decor. It looks beautiful!

Entertaining Women September 9, 2010 - 1:05 am

Love the name of your blog…I could never be confused with a minimalist either! I like the contrast of the mini pumpkins on the white stoneware candlesticks. I may have to give that a try on one of my tablescapes. I'm a neophyte to blog land, so I'm happy to find the reprise of your design. Thank you for stopping by my post. Come back for another visit any time. Cherry Kay

Jacqueline September 9, 2010 - 1:11 am

Absolutely gorgeous. It has started to cool down here 86, and up the canyons the leaves are beginning to turn. I love what you did. If you can believe it, I have Halloween out already, not because I wanted to, but I found some great things and it was easier to decorate than to find a place for them! One of the neighborhood teenagers was giving me a hard time about it!

Jane September 9, 2010 - 2:13 am

Your fall tablescape is so gorgeous! I am inspired to do some fall decorating this weekend.


xinex September 9, 2010 - 2:28 am

This is so beautiful! I love how you used the demijohn in the table too with a number…..Christine

The Pennington Point September 9, 2010 - 2:38 am

Seriously fabulous. I love the mini pumpkins on the candle holders and the tags make my heart go pitter pat. Lisa~

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style September 9, 2010 - 2:52 am

Sherry, I love that table with my favorite demijohns. Just gorgeous. So glad you shared it again so I could see it. I do hope it gets cooler soon.

June September 9, 2010 - 6:34 am

Oh it will be great to see what you do this year Sherry. I'm not sure how you are going to out do last years decor though. It is just perfection!
I can't even think about Fall decor, with everything still so green here around me. But very soon, I think things will be changing.
Thank you Sherry for your lovely message to me. It meant the world.

Sailing Simply September 9, 2010 - 11:45 am

Oh Boy! I can't wait to see your new fall tablesetting if this your old one. You will certainly have alot to live up too, this is just gorgeous! I love it! The pumpkins on the candlesticks, those beautiful plates and of course the demijohns…too fabulous! So glad you shared this again!

Mid-Atlantic Martha September 9, 2010 - 1:18 pm

So pretty! We're finally cooling down ….just a bit. Looking forward to the colors of autumn.

craftyles September 9, 2010 - 2:54 pm

Pretty table! That will certainly get you in the fall spirit. It's still really hot here, too. Doesn't feel like autumn yet. We'll just have to patient!

Mimi September 9, 2010 - 7:05 pm

Beautiful table, Sherry!

Miss Merry September 10, 2010 - 1:30 am

Very pretty autumn table – I love the #1 tag! It makes me feel your guests are number one with you!

Olivia~ September 10, 2010 - 1:31 am

Go for it girl! I have been knee deep in fall for at least a week now…yes, I love to redecorate for all seasons. Can't wait to see what you have going on.

Lenore September 10, 2010 - 2:03 am

Beautiful arrangements and they look so fall like.
Hope your weather cools enough to get you in the mood!!! It's been very cool here in San Diego all summer and I think we actually missed summer this year.

Mona Thompson September 10, 2010 - 2:10 am

Lovely. I'm a real fan of the wicker covered bottles.

[email protected] September 10, 2010 - 2:11 am

Your Fall decor is just so pretty!! Love it!!


Nancy September 10, 2010 - 2:13 am

Beautiful Sherry! I love the rattan/wicker covered bottles and the number tags. So cute!
The whole table is gorgeous…looks like it came out of Pottery Barn!
I am anxious to get my Fall decor out too…it's still so muggy and warm here.

Have a great weekend,


Barbara September 10, 2010 - 2:37 am

Sherry, this is so pretty! It is too hot here too but I am afraid that I am going to have to dig things out after seeing all these pretty fall tables. I just love your centerpiece.

French-Kissed September 10, 2010 - 4:18 am

Oh so pretty, Sherry. I do love Fall, but I am not quite ready to give up on Summer yet. I am milking it all the way til the 21st!


Sandra September 10, 2010 - 4:31 am

Love the jug with a simple tag on it! I can't wait to see what you do this year…I'll be back!

Gina September 10, 2010 - 12:20 pm

Oh this is so pretty! I love all the different textures you used. Thanks for the inspiration!

niartist September 10, 2010 - 1:28 pm

Sherry!! Thanks so much for linking up to Vignette Fridays this week! I love your vignette. So beautiful and original – and most importantly: INSPIRATIONAL! I love the whole thing, but especially that wicker wrapped demi john bottle.. GORGEOUS! 🙂 All the best, Artie

Bill September 10, 2010 - 4:11 pm

Hi Sherry,

That was definitely a fall display that merits a second look! I'm so glad you shared it and glad I stopped by. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Keep cool!

Confessions of a Plate Addict September 10, 2010 - 5:17 pm

Hi Sherry! How pretty! I love the demi-john! And those candlesticks are gorgeous! Have a wonderful weekend!…hugs…Debbie

Sweetladyelaine September 10, 2010 - 5:35 pm

Very pretty! I love the centerpiece….Thank you for sharing!

Kate Dickerson September 11, 2010 - 9:57 pm

What a lovely setting!!! I adore your wicker-covered bottles. Are they antique? I've always wanted some, myself!

Sweet Bee Cottage September 12, 2010 - 6:22 pm

Lovely! I bet it will be even more fabulous this year!

Linda Q September 15, 2010 - 6:34 am

Really lovely and inspiring. I got to dig out my Fall things this week and get with it around the house.

Chari at Happy To Design September 17, 2010 - 5:53 pm

Hi Sherry…

I've just been doing a little catching up at your place and had to leave you a note about this gorgeous autumn table you created! It's lovely, my friend! I love the big frenchy bowl filled with all the autumn pretties that you used for the centerpiece…gorgeous! Ohhh…I can't wait to see your autumn decor this year! I certainly do understand about doing autumn decor while it's so hot. When I lived in south Texas…I never even decorated for autumn. We went from summer right into winter…no in between season! That's one of the things that I love best about living in Colorado…our autumns are beautiful! Thank you for sharing your beautiful table with us…this was truly a treat, my friend!

Warmest autumn wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Sherry: love your fall table. What kind of white plates are those? Love the scallops and dots.
