Autumn decoration ideas for the home

The other weekend we went to the farmers’ market in Forest Hill and got lots of vegetables, cheese and fish. Perfect for weekend dinners.

I also got two mini pumpkins which are currently used as table decoration. I think it makes the kitchen look very autumnal.

I prefer the simple decorations to some of the many tacky and over the top fall decorations I’ve come across when looking for ideas.

My dad grows grapevines on the roof of the terrace which he actually also makes wine of – despite the Swedish weather!

kitchen garden dream

Oh I would like a little garden where I can grow my own vegetables, fruit and berries!

This picture is from the float project but I intend  to upload some pictures soon from Horniman park which has a nice herb garden and see if I have some pictures of my parents’ garden.
