Welcome Fall Party!


Time for a Fall Party!

It's still quite hot here in Florida and doesn't feel, or look, like fall at all, but I'm joining in the Welcome Fall Party Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses is hosting! Click here for lots more fall inspiration.


Since Florida doesn't have a drastic change of seasons, it is a little difficult to go out and pick pretty dried things of nature, colored leaves, berries, etc., so we have to depend upon silk faux leaves and berries for our decor.

My husband does always bring me some pretty real roses in fall colors! He even brought some today!

I add silk colored leaves in with the fresh roses.


Here in Florida we do faux fall decorating with silk fall leaves.
I tuck the silk leaves here and there around the house.

Tucked among the breakfast nook chandy.

Tucked among the crystal chandelier in the dining room.
I do this every year!

Last year some friends were sitting at my dining room table and one of these leaves came falling down! How appropriate, almost like I staged it! LOL! Great timing, they said, "a message from above!"


A white ceramic pumpkin is surrounded with flocked faux leaves.


Faux leaves tucked here and there.

I tuck silk leaves into other floral arrangements.

Yellow and orange flocked leaves are tucked among a few yellow collections.

Vintage treasures
During the fall I display my mother's Jewel Tea Aladdin tea pot, and coffee pot since they have the fall colors on them. On the wall behind is a Thomas Kinkade fall mini painting, one of the four seasons paintings.


I have a scarecrow collection I will share next month. They are still stored in the attic.

I like to decorate for fall with silk sunflowers as well!


I also tuck faux berries into floral arrangements.

I don't do much Halloween decorating, just don't care for Halloween, but I do have three or four cutesy Halloween things I will share in October.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing a few ways I decorate for fall.

I do miss the "smell of fall" a distinct fragrance all it's on. I also miss seeing hills and valleys displaying the splendor of spectacular reds, golds, browns, greens! But, I love the pleasant fall weather we have here in Florida!


My favorite Fall poem:

The leaves lay like hands
upon the ground.
When the wind rustles them
they applaud softly.
Laura E. Stevens

A fall rose for you!

Have a happy day!
God Bless.
