~ The Kitchen Gets A Bit of Fall ~

The fireplace in the kitchen is always a fun place to decorate, not large in size I can either go over the top or keep it semi-simple. Sometimes less is more, in this case I think the pumpkins and plate speak for themselves.


Even though I chose to go semi-simple this year I like to use layers. Layering the pumpkin plate in front of the cream platter gives it more presence. If you want to showcase your plates try this technique you'll be amazed at the difference it will make in your vignette.

Lynne, I love it! The plate in front of the platter is a great idea! Looks almost 3D!

One of the prettiest mantels I've seen. I love the picture behind it also.

Very pretty mantel. I'm going for the theory of less is more this year, but I keep dragging more stuff out of storage, so who knows what it will look like by Thanksgiving.

Oh dear! I have heard "less is more" so many times, but for me ...it just does not work. However..your fireplace is lovely..simply lovely! (why can I not get that simple rule through my head??)
