Happy Thanksgiving (Canadian) Fall Tour 2012

I put together a tour of our home for Fall and our Canadian Thanksgiving, combining photos from several of my Fall posts. 

I kept things fairly neutral in the living room with a pillow, throw, table runner and bunting in plaid flannels in creams, tans and grays. Scented Fall candles, a wood star garland and a wire basket filled with pinecones sit on the dresser. The big basket is going to be filled with blankets and quilts for cooler evenings. I am going to have to get some more cozy throws out tonight as we are having a very cool long Thanksgiving (Canada) weekend.

Our family room is pretty much the same with just a few additions on the barley twist table-more pinecones and lots of yummy scented candles.


In the dining room I filled the pie cabinet with blue and white transferware. On the blue tea towelling table runner I used a pair of zinc lanterns and added pinecones and a wood berry garland to the big ironstone platter of pillar candles. More wood berries, this time with rusty stars, are casually laid on the simple chandelier. And more pinecones in the china cabinet and a row of tealights in the dining room window.

Finally, a few photos of our entry (I forgot to take photos of the entry hall cabinet, so I will do that soon and then add them here.) The wood berry wreath is hung from our coat closet door with burlap ribbon and actually stays here year round. The framed cross-stitch is one of my favourite pieces for Autumn.

I haven't had a chance to photograph our kitchen Fall decor as we are preparing to host 19 people for our Thanksgiving dinner on Monday but you can see our kitchen last year here, here and here. You may have noticed that I don't have any Hallowe'en decor yet, but that will go up after Thanksgiving.
Thanks for stopping by! I wish my Canadian friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you all have a great weekend.
