Home Decor, Fall vignettes and a Giveaway Winner!

Prayers today as we remember our heros and all the lives lost on 9/11…

I’m going to announce the winner

of the recent Traveling Totes giveaway today

but first let’s have a little fall fun!

It’s been busy this week,

I was able to add some Fall touches to the beach house

over Labor Day weekend

The tree was decorated with sunflowers, pumpkins and faux fall leaves

A painted pumpkin pillow and a sunflower pillow

landed on the couch near a styled coastal Fall tray

A little vignette on the kitchen island awaits

to enjoy over the next few months when we return

I traveled back from the beach early last week

and have been doing a little Fall decorating

I had decorated the dining room before I went to the coast

with a table set with an Early Fall Pumpkin Patch

It was time to add some Fall to the rest of the house!

I was going to put up the tobacco basket that I used last year

But then I got an idea…

why not try the magnolia and cotton wreath

that’s hanging on the inside of the front door

I love it!

I couldn’t resist this pumpkin with a crazy stem

when I went grocery shopping the other day

I used it for a little vignette with a Glamorous Gold Bottle

and gold trimmed Steven Singer roses

A sunflower basket hangs on the inside of the front door

and pumpkin patch tiered tray sits on the foyer table

The bar got some Bama love for football season

Holy guacamole yesterday’s Alabama Texas game was stressful,

Bama won by 1 point in the last 10 seconds!

Of course I had to get some sunflowers,

instant Fall decor!

And a little pumpkin love in the kitchen

I’m looking forward to getting some pumpkins and mums for the patio

when the weather cools off during the next few weeks

And now for the winner

  1. Jenna, you have some really great Fall decorating stuff. Congratulations Sheila!

  2. BERNADETTE says:

    Lovely decor. Your magnolia and cottonwood wreath really caught my eye.

  3. Beautiful autumn vignettes, Jenna. Your fall tree at the beach is a lovely way to welcome the season. The magnolia and cotton wreath looks great over the fireplace and your tiered tray is stunning. The game yesterday was extremely stressful. It wasn’t exactly pretty, but a win is a win. Happy Sunday 🍁🧡🍂

  4. Charlotte Hall says:

    Thought of you yesterday while watching that nail biter game – whew, hard to watch at times. Your fall decorations are gorgeous as usual – I’m off to go find my pumpkins & sunflowers. Wish me luck!

  5. Sarah says:

    Congratulations, Sheila!
    Beautiful Autumn vignettes, Jenna. Your lovely home is ready to welcome the new season.

  6. So beautiful! Falls is such a great time for adornments!

  7. Jessica says:

    Fall looks great at your places!!

  8. Rita C. says:

    What great vignettes, Jenna! You’ve been putting in some time with all that decor switching! Love the magnolia mantel, and that crazy stem. I would’ve bought it too. Save the stem!
    Congratulations to Sheila, our TTT winner!

  9. Great collection of pumpkins! Congrats to Sheila!

  10. Nancy says:

    Beautiful fall inspiration from both your homes! I love all the MZC pieces! That tiered tray is gorgeous!
    Congratulations Sheila!

  11. Charming fall decorating and pumpkins galore!

  12. I love your colorful fall vignettes! I have not started decorating for fall yet, but I thank you for your inspiring photos. I will be decorating within the next week or so. Trip went to the game, and he said it was the best game he’s ever been to….I’m glad Alabama is ranked behind Georgia now because maybe it will light a fire under their butts, LOL!

  13. Congratulations to the winner! Loving all of your fall decorating Jenna. Happy Week to you. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  14. Debra R CANTALES says:

    Congratulations to Sheila from a member of the tote group!! Love all your fall decorating Jenna, and that pumpkin with that long stem. When I received the new MC catalog, I thought of you and that you might try paining an ombre stem on a pumpkin.

  15. Shelia says:

    SO EXCITED to hear I had won the prize! The news came after a vexing time with car repairs, etc.–so it has put me on a winning streak. Thanks, Jenna, for the giveway and for the tote. I shall report some on “our” travels in the future.

    Thanks also to the other folks for the “congratulations” entries. Jenna’s blog is a daily escape to one of my happy places with kindred souls. Seeing her posts and admiring Jenna’s talents has been an inspiration to us all.

  16. Barbara at Mantel and Table says:

    Love your fall decor Jenna – especially that magnolia and cotton wreath! That’s just darling! And is that one of your beautiful paintings I spy to the right of your china cabinet? SO lovely! It would be wonderful to sit at your table enjoying your delicious food and feasting my eyes on your artwork. I feel like I’ve just had a relaxing little visit. 😊🍁 Thanks!

  17. Mary says:

    Love your magnolia and cotton wreath in its new spot over the mantel Jenna! Yes, that game was a nail biter! I’m ready for cooler weather so I can make a trip to the pumpkin patch. 🙂

  18. thefrenchhutch says:

    Good idea to decorate the beach house before you left. You and the family will enjoy the fall touches when you return, love the pretty fall tree. Also, you are always one step ahead Jenna with decorating before you left for the beach. Love the “pumpkin patch” centerpiece in the dining room. Last year’s tobacco basket looked so pretty on the mantle but the magnolia and cotton wreath looks awesome. So many pretty fall vignettes to enjoy. Congratulations to Shelia, I’m sure she was thrilled to win the MacKenzie-Childs shopping tote. The game, yikes!!!!

    • Thank you Emily, when I got to the beach house for Labor Day, it was still decorated for 4th of July, I had to get busy pretty quickly! And then I sort of had the bug and started getting things out and one thing led to another~ those poor Bama players, I bet Sabin is brutal this week 😂 It ought to be an interesting season!

  19. Kari says:

    So much eye candy Jenna….I love all your vignettes and all your inspiration. You have been working hard my friend. I can’t pick a favorite altho the dining table MC tiered plate stand is adorable. I’m afraid we are just beginning our sports journeys, so expect more nail biters in football, basketball and yes even the baseball games to come. Have a great day my friend.

  20. Kim says:

    Jenna, your fall vignettes are so pretty at both places! There is so much inspiration here that I don’t know where to start. The tier, the fall tree, the pumpkins, the sunflowers, just everything. I love them all, but I think the mantel is my favorite with the magnolia and cotton wreath and that little pheasant pumpkin is sooo cute!! I hope you are enjoying the coming fall and that some cooler weather is headed your way!

    • Thanks so much Kim, I have had a lot of fun changing things around. The mantel was completely unplanned, it just sort of happened, sometimes those are the best creations! Our temps are getting cooler, thank you!

  21. You were so smart to do a bit of fall dec before you left. I should have done that. Now I’m home (for a couple of weeks) and there’s so much other stuff that has to be done, I’m STILL not decorated. Sure hope I make it before the snow falls. Your post is a delightful inspiration with wonderful vignettes and some things I don’t remember seeing here before! Love it!

  22. lghiggins says:

    How nice when one of your household chores is not a chore but a pleasure! You look ready for fall.

  23. Jenna, your fall decor is very fun. Love the mantel. I have started a little fall decor. Congrats to Sheila on winning.

  24. Pam says:

    I love all of your fall touches, Jenna! So pretty, and what gorgeous sunflowers!

  25. NikiLEOwife says:

    First of all- ROLL TIDE!! We’re headed up for the game this Saturday if all goes well. My husband’s uncle actually played for Bear Bryant. So cool. But anyway- I love all of your fall vignettes. They look great and add a ton of fall to your home. Thanks for sharing on Crafty Creators!
