To fully decorate this space I started by Hiking and Gathering for 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 so 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!

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. Along with Antique Candle Co.’s Apple Cider Candle on a coffee table, both adding equivocally as fall decor essentials.

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.
