Sun, Surf, Sand and a Pumpkin!
This past week has been Fall break for my kids, so we hightailed it down to Florida. We were welcomed by sun, surf and sand…and my lovely dining room…
Over the summer, I worked on the dining area of our vacation home. I wanted to make it light and airy, but I love color, so I added some aqua in the mix.
This is what I came up with…
The first item that I purchased was the bench. I found it at HomeGoods and had to have it! I decorated the space around this bench.
I love my huge clam shell that I filled with potpourri from Ikea…perfect colors. The matching vases are from HomeGoods as well as the “sticks.” I’m not even sure what they’re called, but they’re very beachy! They’re held steady in the vases with sand.
I was so happy to see my beautiful dining room, but I decided we needed a little pumpkin too! It is fall after all!
I found a white pumpkin at Home Depot, but it was too big for my clam shell. I switched to this basket that I found at a local flea market for $1.00. Love it!
I added my potpourri and some shells…since it is the beach…
The shells I used were white clam shells. I wanted to keep with the white and aqua theme so I chose not to use my colored shells.
The look is still in keeping with the beach theme of my home, but the pumpkin just adds a touch of the season. The pumpkin is a perfect fit for the basket, both in size and appearance. What a fun, but subtle Fall look!
Since we are only here for a week, I couldn’t go overboard with the holiday decorating, but I thought it would be fun to see how I could take my beach decor and add some Fall flair!
Add a pumpkin and you have instant Fall decor at the beach!
Happy Beachy Fall to you all!
You are always Welcome at My House!
