Fall Decorating

Large Owl Plate from Pottery Barn
Green glass vase from Pottery Barn

Owl Martini Shaker from Pottery Barn

Last Friday I posted some displays from my local Pottery Barn store which were an inspiration to me while preparing my home for Fall.  I thought I'd share how I displayed my purchases. In the first photo I used the large owl platter on my mantle and grouped it with some other owls I already own.  I'm not a pro at decorating by any means, but I've learned a few things from interior designers.  When you group similar items or collections it makes more of a statement than if you have them spread sporadically around your home.  This by no means is all of the owl statues I own, but I think it makes a statement. It helps if you have items of varying heights.   I also threw in the witch plate to give the grouping a pop of color. The bittersweet adds a natural element and also adds a touch of color.  The rocks in the vase also add a touch of nature, but I went the fake route on the twigs.  I found them at Crate and Barrel.  They are made of paper and look pretty cool up close.  In the second photo, I spread out my swag of bittersweet and put a few sprigs in the green vase from Pottery Barn.  Now that my house is decorated for Fall I can sit back and fix myself a martini with my new owl martini shaker.
