Fall Decorating With Baskets, Dough Bowls and Trays!

Happy Tuesday!  This past week for the #FabFallFest we asked friends to share how they styled their fall baskets, dough bowls and trays.  While I have a few of these items styled, I thought it would be fun to share some inspiration that I’ve found around the web, check it out:  (Please be sure to pin from original sources)


Warm up a nonworking fireplace with cozy accessories such as pillow-and-throw-filled baskets, a plush sheepskin rug and a little branch of eucalyptus in a vase, as Coco Kelley did in this vignette. An added benefit: Easy access to warm blankets on cold evenings.

I just LOVE this fireplace styling with the plush and cozy rug, but those baskets!!!  I would take two of each if I didn’t have a room in my basement overflowing with baskets already.  Baskets are great to house extra pillows and throws and just to give a warm inviting feeling in a fall vignette.



Wire baskets are a beautiful way to display a colorful autumn floral arrangement, apples, pumpkins and even gourds!

What says autumn more than mums?  Mums placed in bushel baskets!  I adore this staggered vignette.


Dough Bowls and Trays

Dough Bowls and trays, make the perfect setting for a fall centerpiece or vignette.  Layering texture from natural elements, and adding candles or even pattern, can really make these centerpieces pop.  Here are a few of my favorite:

Tiered trays are great space savers and allows you to serve multiple purposes, decorative and functional!
