Pink Owls & Plaid Pumpkins

I don't use a calendar to tell me when it's time to decorate our home for a holiday or season      If I have an idea and the time ....I JUST DO IT!       Decorating should be fun....not just another chore!

I usually put up a thin Christmas tree in the kitchen,   and this year I thought I would enjoy a fall tree in the kitchen.    With the tree already in place,   it will be an easy to transition it into a Christmas tree.

I bought a couple of these blingy pink owls at At Home last year,    They have them in stock again this season so I bought two more.

They are as pretty from the back as they are from the front......

Look at that sweet little head!

I filled in my tree with small textured pumpkins,     white roses.......

White sunflowers and a buffalo check garland.

Next to my fall tree,    I hung the metal Antique sign that was previously in the family dining room.

Instead of a tree skirt around the tree,    I sat pumpkins in a bed of white ferns.

I have a pumpkin patch on the counter next to the fall tree.....

Well,   I don't know if you could call it a patch since there's only one pumpkin!

My pumpkin patch is in the pass thru from the kitchen to the family dining room

You can see the kitchen from this side.....

And you can see the family room from this side.

I always enjoy your visits so much,    please come back again soon!


  1. oh my gosh, Penny, those pink blingy owls are adorable!! You're twisting my arm to get out my white tree soon!

  2. Penny, I always adore looking at your seasonal changes. Your home looks glorious, as if it's already for a party. You can tell a very happy Momma lives here! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Good morning Penny, Oh, how cute the owls are. I love both pink and the black and white with the big plaid pumpkin. I do like the cute fall designs you create. I just read the Old Farmer's Almanac this morning and you better come up with loads of Winter decorations as we are so supposed to have a long cold one. Well, need next Spring really early to cheer us up.
    For now I am going to enjoy every beautiful warm day we have as the nights are already cooling down a lot.

  4. Penny,
    I am totally in love with your sweet Fall Kitchen Tree!!! Love what you used to decorate it!! You are making me now think about having a Fall tree in my Kitchen because I liked when you said that the Tree would already be there for Christmas. As you know, I do have a Tree in the Kitchen for Christmas and setting it up for Fall would save me time at Christmas!! Thanks so much for the Inspiration!!!

  5. I always love seeing your decor even though it is not my style. It is serene with multiple layers to look at; I see more detail the more I look at it; so lovely!

  6. Penny you always amaze me with your creative ideas, I am loving the plaid pumpkin and the tree is down right gorgeous!!!! Where did you find such a thin tree?

  8. Penny,
    Just wanted you to know that I mentioned you and your Fall Kitchen Tree in my latest post..

  9. The little owls and birds are sooo cute tucked into the tree, but I think my favorite is the sweet owl on top of the b/w pumpkin! Thanks for sharing with all of us at Share Your Style, Penny! Happy to have featured your post this past week (just getting back by to say hi ~ crazy busy and TIRED since going back to work but getting there with balance between work and blog).
