The Friday Five: White Pumpkins

Fall is here…and pumpkins are absolutely everywhere!

I am amused by all the white pumpkin photos I’ve been seeing on my Instagram and Pinterest feeds. It’s incredible! A few years ago, white pumpkins were rare! And now? They’re everywhere!

Fall decor isn’t my favourite, but I do like a good white pumpkin or two for my home!

The Friday Five: It’s October!

Oh man, am I ever sad that the cold weather has arrived. While I do love back-to-school season, the colder fall weather is not really for me. I’m definitely a spring/summer gal, so when the temperatures fall (currently hovering around 10C), and I’m forced to wear layers, I get annoyed. While I know many fashion bloggers are enjoying the arrival of cozy textured sweaters and leather knee boots, I am trying to extend the wear of my Havaianas and jean jacket.

So it probably comes as little surprise that I don’t really decorate for fall. While I do love Hermes orange (who doesn’t?), the traditional fall colours do not really have a place in my home. (Gosh, I do sound cranky, don’t I? It doesn’t help that I’m also currently sick as a result of the non-stop action that I experience every September!).

Trying to be positive about this seasonal change, here are five white things that I would have in my home and wardrobe this fall (especially if money grew on fall trees)…

What about you? How do you feel about the fall? What will you be bringing into your home this season?

Celebration: Fall Tablescape

My fall decor this year consists of a cake plate piled high with little white(ish) pumpkins. I like to keep things simple as you could probably imagine.

When I have people over for dinner though I might just have to replicate the tablescape that Shannon created in her home.

It’s so inviting, don’t you think?
