Be sure to visit my French vintage fall tour 2017.
Fall is my most favourite time of year and it’s fun to decorate with natural elements. Since I decorated my home last year using non-traditional fall colors, I’m doing the same this year with my French vintage fall tour.
I purchased this mirror in the clearance section of a local shop because the mirror had a large crack right down the middle, so I replaced the mirror and did an an antiquing effect to the mirror which didn’t quite work out! Then I bought a new mirror for it, redid the antiquing effect and now it looks awesome but the post shows the old photos of the tutorial gone wrong. I will post new photos of it in that post soon but at least you can see the finished version here.
They are pretty similar to the real thing – can you tell the real from the fake ones?
For my fall dining room, I decided on using seeded eucalyptus (my favourite green colour) and pears with roses to create a table runner effect down the middle of the table.
Every year it seems I’m constantly running from store to store looking for white pumpkins and heirloom pumpkins before my fall tours (the tours always run in September) and it’s exhausting and I just didn’t have it in me this year.
I thought to myself that surely my readers might have the same issue. I decided instead to use pears/apples and seeded eucalyptus for the theme of my tours this year along with roses (because they’re just so pretty!) to make items that are ‘fall’ and available. Nothing like orchard fruit for fall.

My kitchen started with a fresh clean slate and added more roses, eucalyptus, pears and apples. All the natural and wooden touches look so fresh against all that white.
Here is a free printable for you with apples and eucalyptus and the best fall quote ever from Oscar Wilde, “And all at once summer collapsed into fall”.

I just got these beautiful copper platters and I love the versatility with different ways to use them, for decor and for serving.
I’m so glad you stopped by for my French Vintage fall tour!
