I’m excited to collaborate with MacKenzie-Childs this fall to display their new Halloween decor in our Vermont home. I was so impressed with their Easter decor that I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them again this Halloween.
MacKenzie-Childs was born of their love of home and commitment to fresh, innovative design. Founded in 1983, their humble beginnings started in the basement of Wallcourt Hall, a building built in 1909 as a dormitory for an all-girls prep school. Several years later, they moved to the present-day headquarters just up the road on a tranquil Victorian farm overlooking Cayuga Lake, NY, where they produce world-renowned home furnishings. The designers and artisans have created beautiful products that add joy and grace to homes worldwide. Colorful, handmade ceramics, enamelware, glassware, furniture, and home accessories define the collections.
To fully decorate this space, I started by Hiking and Gathering Natural Fall Elements locally on some of the Vermont trails. I collected golden, green, and brown leaves, birch branches, and pinecones. Many of these items are available in stores. However, it’s so much more fun to go out for a walk or a hike and collect these items yourself. It really got me in the fall mood, too!
I used the leaves I gathered hiking to accentuate the mantel and table in our dining room. The leaves add color and warmth, along with a natural fall vibe.
The MacKenzie-Childs crows are unique as they add height and character to the table.
MacKenzie-Childs pumpkins are so beautiful with their checkered black and white trademark style and brilliant color patterns.

Here, I added a couple of eyeballs to the mantel that I found thrifting on my way back to Vermont from Maine. I just couldn’t resist these cuties!
The blue and white plates pictured here are from Bico Ceramics. I love their beautiful patterns—the chargers I found at Pier 1 Imports last year.

We both just adored these MacKenzie-Childs crows:) Aren’t they so fun for Halloween? But I will definitely use these through to Thanksgiving. They are super cute and really high quality!
I took a few of the extra leaves and added them into some wooden bowls that I picked up thrifting for $6 apiece.
These crows are just the cutest. The gangly legs and tails in the air look like they are coming in for a landing on the table.
I’m so glad you dropped by, and if you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you enjoyed your visit with us here today at our Home in Vermont.
