Functional Fall Kitchen
Fall is my favorite. But this fall we have an infant and mama got no time to be shopping, styling…and lets be honest, even cleaning. So I brought up our fall boxes, gathered all of my faux greenery from all seasons and made myself a functional fall kitchen.
This is especially an exciting post because I am part of my very first blog hop! If you are visiting me from Carla, Enchanted Hill Life - I am so happy you’re here…BUT HOW amazing is her living and dining room and THOSE shelves?? - so much inspo!
Special thanks to Lindsay, Aratari At Home, for hosting this blog hop and for inviting me to be a part of it.
Use decor from past years & all seasons
Don’t be afraid to use your pumpkins and wreaths from last year. Heck, even throw in your spring and winter greenery to give it a fresh vibe. See here how I used eucalyptus that has been in my Christmas tree and florals that I used in my spring tablescapes!
Layer your “kitchen things”
Use your cutting boards, utensils, kitchen aid mixer, wooden spoons, tea towels, hand soaps…YOU NAME it as ‘decor.’ Layering is what gets you that amazing depth and texture. If you have shelving, use it to your advantage - not only for storage but add touches of fall by popping in a pumpkin here and there.
Letter-board for all seasons
The letterboard is this generation’s ultimate ‘decor’ item. It goes with anything and can be for anyone. If you type in “fall letterboard” on Pinterest, a TON of quotes will come up. In my case I searched “fall recipes.” My husband then asked if apple crip really was on the menu….obviously not, HA!
You can find letter boards at the Dollar store, TJ MAXX and Hobby Lobby for cheap!
Use your groceries
How easy right? Unless your husband starts eating the apples off the table…yes this happened at our house. Use your fruits and veggies as decor pieces. Even easier, use bottles of wine and coffee tins to layer and stage!
I hope our fall kitchen gave you some inspiration to keep things free, simple and functional this year. Now RUN and check out Sarah’s, Dreaming of Homemaking, fall mudroom - that girl has major design & decor talent.
Happy Fall <3
