Fall Decorating and DIY Autumn Fairytale Centerpiece

Jennifer HayslipHello Friends and Happy Fall!

Lately I’ve been incredibly inspired by all of the fall decorating photos I see on Pinterest and Instagram.

I love how everyone has their own unique individual style and Fall colors is not just traditional Orange, Reds, Yellow..etc..

For those of us that love soft muted tones we have embraced those color and incorporated into our fall home decor.

I myself love Cream, pink and gold color palette. It’s blends beautifully in my Living Room.

I came up with a fabulous idea for a Centerpiece a few weeks ago.

It started with a ornate vintage mirror that I had yet to hang up in my house.

I thought it would be there perfect base to build a centerpiece for my coffee table.

The mirror beautifully reflects the light of my chandelier from above.


My centerpiece idea quickly evolved to the idea of giving it a hint of Fairytale magic.

Cinderella had a pumpkin carriage so I ran with that idea of using the vintage storybook doll with pumpkins.

If you love this centerpiece it’s easy to re-create!

I purchased cream colored pumpkins from Hobby Lobby and sprayed them with chalk paint for a matte look.

I then added a few doilies, dried flowers, stars, crowns and an old pocket watch to lend towards an old magical time worn feel.

Magical pumpkins!!

I also used a sweater pumpkin for added texture that I purchased from Tuesday Morning.



I’m overjoyed with how my Centerpiece turned out. It’s fall festive with a hint of whimsy!

I’m also excited to share with you this gorgeous new cabinet I just purchased.

I’ve been watching it for a few months now debating whether to purchase it or not.

The other day I went to my favorite local Antique Mall and there it was….

With a new marked down price!

I found a perfect spot in the corner of my Living Room for the cabinet.

I’m slowly filling it up with vintage treasures.

My biggest debate was… do I paint it shabby white or leave as is????

My first intention was to paint the cabinet with a creamy white chalk paint.

However, once I stood back and really looked at the piece I think it looks gorgeous untouched!!

I love painted furniture so I’m still on the fence…..

What do you think?

Another view of my room. This room definitely is my love for English Cottage.


My most prized Living Room decoration accessory of all is my sweet handsome London.

He “owns” the sofa and it’s become his throne. ha!!
