Natural Decorating in the Kitchen for Fall

There are some things I really love about fall. The smell of wildflowers and dried grasses, warm days and cool nights. I also love bringing in natural decorating in the kitchen for fall. Snipping some of those wildflowers and grasses, and bringing in them in in bunches to put around the kitchen feel so pretty and carefree. I am joining a group of blogger friends today to give little tours of our fall kitchens.

You are lucky, you are catching the kitchen on a clean day! With the kids home e-learning, it seems someone is always in it. The other day it was the middle of the school day and my Middle was making a burrito with someone talking on the phone next to her. I asked her if she was still in school. She answered “Yeah, it’s a group project.” I guess with e-learning, if you’re hungry in the middle of a group session, you can make a freaking burrito.

I wasn’t quite ready to bring in full-on pumpkins quite yet. I decided to go with a black and white feel instead with bursts of color. One of the ways I decided to bring natural decor into the kitchen was to bring some goldenrod in from the garden, grasses and green apples. I wish the apples were from our trees, but the late frost got most of the blossoms, and the squirrels snapped up the rest. I’ve been feeling “fallish” and burning one of my favorite fall candles from Target, and love it’s fragrance.It’s called “Bookshop”. I think it smells like being cozy inside, the kids said it reminds them of the holidays.

I also found some fox tails and sedum in the yard and I added those to vases in the window. The black and tan vase of goldenrod was a vintage find, and adore the vintage-modern style. The view from the kitchen window is especially pretty when all of the leaves start changing. My neighbor has the huge sugar maple, and it becomes brilliantly red in the fall.

Do you call the grass in the bottles fox tails or squirrel tails? I’ve heard it both ways.

Wash lather rinse tea towel by Jennifer Rizzo

Over the towel bar, I draped one of my new tea towel designs. You can find all of my new cotton towel designs here.

One way I recently also brought in some natural elements was to paint a black and white floral wallpaper-like mural on the wall over the doorway to our sub-level. You can see a video of the process here:

I love how the large scale adds a fresh, new look. You can see what it looked like before here.

Our open shelving was restyled when I recently painted the buffet green. Paint can really transform and make things brand new.

  1. Your kitchen is so fun Jen! I love that you use found things and items that have a story. I think it sets you apart from other sites. Love your style!

    I pinned your kitchen to my fall board.


  2. Jennifer,

    I totally understand the whole thing about the kitchen never gets any rest. While we were taking photos, the whole family was making meals! Of course, they didn’t want to be in any photos. 🙂 Happy Fall and enjoy your gorgeous kitchen!

  3. I am in love with your floral mural and am so impressed that you did that by hand! A few months ago I got my cabinets painted in a similar green color as your buffet. Now that my cabinets are updated, I’m very excited to decorate our kitchen for fall but this year I have a tight budget. Thank you for these affordable and eco-friendly ideas!
