Hello and Happy Autumn! I love seeing what everyone is doing with their seasonal decor this time of year.

Blogging is a lot more fun when you can collaborate with other bloggers and today I’m doing just that.

I’m excited to be participating in the Welcome Autumn on a Tray Blog Tour! It’s hosted by the wonderful and kind Katherine of Katherine’s Corner.

· Thank you for stopping by my blog today and if you’re coming from another blog in the tour welcome!

My blog has always been a place were I want people to feel like they can find doable home ideas that will inspire their love of home. Simply put, I hope you feel at home here and appreciate you my design friends.

Let’s begin!

Welcome Autumn on a Tray Blog Hop

I shopped the house for Fall inspired pieces for my tray styling. Do you know what I mean when I say “shop the house”? I basically wander about looking for things I already have on hand in various areas of our home. Very good for the bank account!

Here’s what I used:

  • Tray (Pottery Barn)
  • Antlers (naturally shed)
  • Pine cones (gathered from our yard)
  • Textured ball form (thrifted)
  • Vase (thrifted)
  • Faux flowers (Michaels)
  • Vintage box (thrifted)
  • Faux mini pumpkins (Amazon)
  • Dried corn (thrifted)
  • Candle stick holder (thrifted)

how to tray styling

If you’re thinking about styling a tray for Autumn first choose your main subject. For me the vase and faux flowers where the main focus. Everything else surrounded them and added to the picture.

Do you know what?!

I’m just know looking at this photo and realized I have a nautical them going on. The vintage oil painting is of an old ship and the vintage jewelry box has some kind of similar sea vessel on it as well. So cool!

It was a lot of fun putting this Autumn tray together. As I was working time flew by and that’s a sure sign you’re doing something you love.

Thanks again for visiting! I hope it was fun seeing what I put on my Autumn tray. Head over to the next talented blogger Debbie of Debbie-Dabble Blog and check out her Autumn Tray. She’s so creative I’m sure it’ll be something fun.

    This is so fresh and light Maria – I love the warm white and tans, and how fun that you had a ship theme going without even knowing it! That’s as you say, a sure sign that you’re doing what you love. So nice touring with you today – I’m your newest subscriber, and excited to spend more time on your site. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

    This looks lovely Maria. I love that so many of the items are either organic or thrifted. That’s totally my jam! I especially love that you found the corn thrifting. That vintage oil painting is fabulous and stopped me in my tracks!!! It’s wonderful to tour with you today. XO- MaryJo @ masterpiecesofmylife.com

    I love all the neutrals and wonderful fall natural elements. Your small vintage box inside the tray is so unique and adds a bit of fall color. Your buffet with the washed paint finish is absolutely gorgeous. I’ll be coming back to visit again soon. So nice to meet you.

    That candle is the pièce de ré·sis·tance! I swear, I took one look at your tray, and immediately thought to myself that somebody could write a seasonal spooky story based on the items on that tray! FABULOUS!

    I always enjoy the results of “shopping my home”! I loved the fullness of both the florals and the vase. The antique jewelry box was an unexpected touch. It was fun touring with you.

    This is great! I love the antler sheds, they are one of my favorite items to use in fall decorating! The neutrals are perfect and the color from the corn adds just the contrast you needed to make your tray pop!

      Wasn’t the corn a nice touch against the backdrop of the box? So happy when you shop the house and things come together like that. Have a great weekend Chloe!

    Maria, as I scrolled through the post, I kept thinking about how I would like to use your ideas. The way you assembled each item plus the choice of your beautiful DIY sideboard where you placed the tray is calming.

    Happy October,
    Rachelle

    I love your tray, so versatile and it looks wonderful overflowing with fall things. The neutral palette is so pretty and a reminder of how colors fade as the fall days go by…I love the open book too, sort of like time is standing still… Shopping your home is always so satisfying, creating something new without buying something new!
