We’re sharing how to create a simple fall pumpkin vignette as we team up with some of our favorite creative ladies for the Pinterest Challenge blog hop, hosted by the amazing Cindy of County Road 407.
If you’re coming over from Wendy’s blog, WM Design House, welcome, we’re excited to have you here. Didn’t you love how she incorporated old books into her fall decor? I can’t get enough of her gorgeous style!
If you’re new here the Pinterest Challenge is a monthly series where each blogger uses the same photo found on Pinterest as creative inspiration.
They then adjust the idea to fit their own specific style and incorporate it into their home in some way.
This month, our inspirational photo is a Fall Vignette featured in The Cottage Journal highlighting Gloria Parker’s fabulous 1830s home. So, let’s get started!
Attention to Detail…
One of the things I’ve always appreciated about my Mom is that she makes time to study a variety of design ideas.
She’s all about the details and is very careful to notice everything from the way the light hits a specific vignette to all the different layers that make a room special.
More often than not when we’re shopping together, I’m thinking of the big picture.
But she is searching for those tiny details that can elevate a space.
After all these years I can definitely tell she’s rubbing off on me because the minute Cindy shared our inspiration picture, I immediately noticed the tiny details.
The fall berry branches, the silver frames and old photographs, the layers of books, the fall leaves, the white pumpkins, and of course the containers.
By themselves, they might all look rather ordinary.
But when you put them together in a simple fall pumpkin vignette, they come together to create a dash of seasonal delight.
Here’s a look at how to create a simple Fall pumpkin vignette…
Simple Fall Pumpkin Vignette Supplies:
- Large Pumpkins (we used large and small sizes)
- Brown and White transferware (we used a pitcher, plate, and a large urn)
- Small ironstone bowl (to hold the small pumpkins)
- Fall floral arrangement (we used faux florals, berry picks, and dried greenery)
Simple Fall Pumpkin Vignette Steps…
Gather your supplies and put together your branches or fall floral arrangement.
Next, lay a tray down to give your simple fall pumpkin vignette a solid base. We’re using this DIY Dutch Tulip Crate.
Add the floral arrangement or branches to one side of the crate.
Then add a stack of books to the other side. We’re using these French Gray Painted Books but you can use whatever you have on hand.
In lieu of a photograph, I’m using a brown and white transferware plate featuring Queen Elizabeth II. I’ll share below what it looks like using 2 different sizes of transferware pitchers and a scale too.
After you have those pieces in place, add a small container of pumpkins.
Next, add a layer of texture with strands of raffia and you’re good to go!
Other Ideas to Consider…
Now, if you don’t have a plate of the late Queen lying around, you can try a small brown and white transferware pitcher…
Or a large one.
Honestly, I think anything that is antique or vintage like this scale on top of the stack of books would work including the beautiful black and white photos in silver frames featured in the original inspiration picture.
Another idea to try is an open book.
It was also featured in the original photo as well.
I know decorating for the seasons and the holidays can be overwhelming sometimes.
Especially if you have a busy home and work life.
That said, simple fall pumpkin vignettes sprinkled around the house are a quick and easy way to give your home a festive feel.
