Simple fall decor in the kitchen with dried hydrangeas mixed with faux pumpkins and neutral elements for a cozy farmhouse kitchen.
Fall Decor in the Kitchen
I'd like to thank the girls from 2 Bees in a Pod for organizing this fun tour!
If you are visiting from White Cottage Home, I am so happy you stopped by.
Be sure to read through until the end of the post where you will find all of the tour links.
It's beginning to look like fall around here at Our Southern Home! I've been a busy bee cleaning and decorating and cleaning some more.
A lot of this room, we have had for years. Unless it says EXACT, assume that the shopping links are similar.
Fall is like my time to spring clean. We get kind of lackadaisical in the summer with cleaning so I do a full-on clean before I start to decorate for fall. We will soon be spending more time indoors, and I want everything to look nice and grime-free. I talked a little bit about the big clean that I did in the kitchen last week HERE in this post.

We are very close to being true empty nesters. The kids are in their last semester of college. A lot depends on the jobs that they get. I love them being at home and will cry buckets when they move on to start their lives.
The older that I get, I find myself liking the less is more mantra. I feel like I do less and less for fall and keep it more about making things feel cozy.
I used to decorate for Halloween when the kids were still in school. When they went off to college I quit. We've never had trick-or-treaters, and I did it just for them. I've donated most of it. Grandchildren down the road may get me back into the spirit.
My fall decor has really paired back. I love decorating the dining tables for fall and our family room mantel. You can see this year's fall mantel HERE.
This year's kitchen is pretty simple for me! LOL!
I have a love affair with hydrangeas. Most of mine are less than 5 years old. I was able to harvest some blooms in early August and last week that was close to a state of drying.
I knew that the ones that I dried in August would be perfect for my dough bowl. I'll share more on the how-to of that soon.
Here in the south, it's hard to find anything other than basic orange pumpkins early in the season so I opt to go faux. I'll buy a few later in the month when they are readily available at our local farm stand.
The blue-green pumpkins were some from Walmart that I painted years ago. I added the small velvet white ones and pretty wood ones this year. I love the combination of the three pumpkins.
The large concrete white pumpkin can also be used outside. I loved the oversized look for the tabletop.
I pulled out my “gather” sign that I use every fall. I love it here above the stove.
This little corner of the counter is always my pretty spot to decorate otherwise I like to keep the island pretty clutter-free.
I really loved the unique look of this wicker pumpkin. It has a light and airy feel for our warmer fall days and looks fabulous with blue and white porcelain.
I don't plan (right now) to buy any flowers for the island this fall. I'll clip branches of greenery to use. Our lantana has been gorgeous this summer. Since it's still pretty summery in the south, I decided to brighten up this little spot and enjoy the pink for a bit. Do you see that cute little glass acorn?
Our kitchen is a very hard room for me to take photos of due to poor natural light. We have deep-covered porches on the front and the back. The kitchen area is in the center and hard to shoot. I turned the lights on (which is a no-no for photos) to get you a few full room shots. I honestly just gave up! LOL! They aren't that great but you can get a better picture.
I hope you have fun planning and decorating your fall home.
Up next on the tour is The Tattered Pew. You are going to adore Kelly's home!
