I am totally changing up my indoor fall decor this year. I have switched to a neutral fall decor with the move to the Townhouse. As I stated in my prior fall posts, I always decorated in classic fall colors & while I love those shades & still use them outside, inside they just weren’t working for me. The entire downstairs is pretty much an open concept & I went with neutral furniture & pops of blue. I loved how the fireplace mantel turned out this year with silvers & natural elements like burlap, so I continued that with the dining area. Think apples, dried hydrangeas, burlap, twine & of course owls!
I made a little banner with twine, pumpkins & leaves in a color similar to the hydrangeas. I added some ironstone & framed a stamped leaf. A second banner with pumpkins & pinecones was strung along the cup hooks. Those little owls were a steal at $1 for two at The Dollar Tree! They were orange so I gave them a quick coat of white. Sticking with the natural elements I added green apples under a cloche & some more hydrangeas.
For the tablescape I filled a large vase with green apples in water & silk flowers. Another ironstone pitcher with hydrangeas & this cute owl candleholder sit atop a burlap runner. I am really loving the neutral fall decor. It is very soft and welcoming.
I wanted to share a very simple, but delicious recipe for this pumpkin bundt cake from Pumpkin Bundt Cake-Taste of Home. It is very moist & is my go to recipe. You can easily add a cream cheese icing, but we actually prefer it plain. I will include it at the bottom of this post. I hope you like it!

I couldn't believe it when I saw your lidded rooster and duck casseroles! I just pulled out my rooster and pig vintage ones this afternoon to transition to fall too! I've been looking for a rabbit one for years.

Really? That is so funny! I look everywhere for them but they are very hard to find. I also only have one spoon, lol. The hunt is the fun of it though right?
