Polka Dot Pumpkins + Fall Decor

Fall is finally present in our home! I stuck to a clean look with neutrals and a little bit of shimmer for our coffee table. The first thing I did was buy lots of little orange pumpkin and gourds at the Dollar Store. Stephen so kindly spray painted them white for me {he loves his new painting/spray painting responsibility} and then I got to work with a little gold craft paint.

I just used the end of a paintbrush to achieve round dots, each pumpkin has a different polka dot design.

Not a bad look for Dollar Store pumpkins, right?

I think these would be precious as place card holders for a Thanksgiving table as well.

I kept the mantel nice and simple with some cotton and a pair of antlers I am so excited to own now. With the thought of Christmas in mind, I like a clean look for fall.


The most colorful addition for fall is on our breakfast table. I used a scarf from last fall as a runner and placed corn husks on top of it. Velvet pumpkins were the finishing touch.

Happy Fall Y'all! 

I am linking up to Ten June's link party today- go check out the fabulous fall decor!

Thank you so much for all of your Ikea tips for my adventure- I am using every single one of them indeed!
