Embracing Fall in the Garden


Happy Tuesday, Friends! I have to be honest, with the temperatures here in Texas, Longing to Embrace Fall in the Garden may have been a more appropriate title! Even though the weather isn't cooperating, I made up my mind to add some autumn accents outdoors before it's time to decorate for the holidays! Join me along with a talented group of blogging friends...

...for the Embracing Fall tour hosted by Amber, at Follow the Yellow Brick Home. If you've dropped by after visiting Carol at The Red Painted Cottage, I know you enjoyed her lovely fall decor. Instead of skipping or rushing through autumn in the garden, I've kept it simple this year. The small assortment of pumpkins and mums I bought are arranged in places that are out of direct sunlight.

I created a simple seasonal display on a potting stand that I previously repurposed for serving and storage in my dining room. Recently, I upcycled a vintage dresser that serves the same function with additional storage, so I moved the potting stand outdoors.

This is the first time I've actually used it outside, and I had fun styling it for the season.

I've treasured my enamelware pieces for close to twenty years.

They were clearance finds at World Market. Remember my painted rooster?

I scored this little metal sign at Dollar General for .70! My local store has had great merchandise lately.

Here, you can see the full stand.

  2. What a sweet vignette you have styled for fall in your garden. Your little squirrel reminds me of the sweet little squirrel that Amber had been displaying lately in her home! Your labeled containers are perfect for your garden! So happy to be hoping with you again!

  3. Cecilia, Happy Fall!! I love all your touches you place in your garden. I have a little squirrel that needs to come out too, I forgot I had him. Need to go grab he to sit out this Fall. Love your Fall inspiration!

  4. I think moving your gardening table outside was a great idea. Love all the fall touches. Especially that little squirrel. It all looks so happy! Hope the weather cools down soon so you can sit out there and enjoy it.

  5. Cecilia, your outdoor pumpkin and milk can vignette is so pretty in that shady spot. I haven't seen vintage milk cans in a while and that one is really gorgeous! Happy Fall!

  8. I think this heat has taken it out of most of us, especially trying to come up with our porch and garden decor. Your pumpkins in the urn are wonderful, love that potting bench and all the fun Fall Garden Goodies!

  11. Cecilia, I love your fall garden display. I especially love that bright colorful rooster. I was recently in Texas and I know how hot it's been. Good idea to keep everything in the shade!

  13. Your vintage stand looks so beautiful and perfect for this season, especially for our Texas weather! It's embracing fall but complementing the weather at the same time. Wow, your Dollar General does have great merchandise. Running to check that out! Happy to be on this tour with you!

  16. Hi Cecilia! I always love seeing pictures from your garden. I love your garden vignette - that rooster is the bomb! So happy to be on tour with you!

  17. Oh my I am loving your simple fall garden treasures! The urn vignette makes my heart sing! Great Dollar General find. I noticed they have been upping their decor game this year.

    Everything looks charming! We had some rain which cooled it down from 100 to high 70's but it still doesn't really have that crisp fall feeling I am longing for. Like you, I decided if I don't go ahead and do some outdoor decorating this week then the season is going to pass by and I love it too much to miss it, despite what the temperature may be.

    Beautiful garden! Thank you for embracing fall with us!

  18. Trisha, the serving stand is darling in the garden! We went from 80 degree temps to 50's. BRRRRRR! It's going to warm back up next week. Happy Fall to you!

  20. This is one of those times when our weather differences are so very extreme, Cecilia! You're trying to fake Fall and we're heading into winter:0 It's 33 degrees here with a dusting of snow covering all the fall colored leaves; I'm singing "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!" Your enamelware garden containers are very similar to some I get years ago at Joann's. I still love them!
