Fall Dining Room and A New Sign!

Hi friends! I know that some of you are ready for Christmas and some of you are feeling like things are being rushed. I'm probably somewhere in the middle. I feel the urge and excitement of Christmas, but I also feel the need to slow down time and remind myself to enjoy the moment. Which is why, for now, we are still decorated for Fall/Thanksgiving at the Scardina House. I really just love the neutrals of fall this year. I have to admit, I'm a sucker for whites but have a special place in my heart for blue things. No matter how neutral I try to be I always gravitate towards blue. It's funny because I tell Nick it must be because I love the Ocean so much. But I also have a love for our sweet little life in the country and when you mix the two together, well..I guess you get our house. 

My dining room is probably one of my favorite rooms currently, as it's basically the only room I feel content with, like I don't need to do a full makeover to feel good about it, I especially loved it after we hung the light fixture from Home Depot. It adds such a pretty element to the space, it didn't cost much and it completely transformed this area. Lighting always makes a big impact and whenever I'm doing a makeover it's the first thing I add or subtract from an area!

I decorate this buffet table for every holiday and season. Sometimes, more then once per season/holiday;) I got the original table from Way Fair but ended up chalk painting it to get the look I was going for. I'll blog about it sometime soon! 

Anyway, here's the current fall set up. I love all the plaids and blues and whites together. Don't you? I found the vine "BOO!" sign at Marshalls for a steal at $10! I had intentions of using it outside but somehow it ended up here and it works. 

I found the twigs on one of my walks with Savanna one afternoon, it never even dawned on me to actually use them inside, but they work oddly enough and duh, free decor!

You can check out the Painted Fox link on the right if you love these cute little farmhouse pails as much as me! 

Also, I was so excited to see this big box on my doorstep! I knew immediately what it was and couldn't hang it fast enough. Literally, I'm pretty sure I had my drill in hand when the UPS guy dropped it off! It's HUGE and metal and fits so amazingly perfect in this space!

 I found it on a flash sale at Antique Farmhouse, which is the most amazing site and I've found the most unique things! It's also very versatile and can be used in so many different spaces. 

What do you guys think? Do you like the sign in the space? Also, I'm curious to know how you are feeling about decorating for Thanksgiving or Christmas right now. Let's chat on Instagram or leave a comment below! I'd love to hear all of your thoughts!

Happy Sunday, Here's to a great week! XO, Laurie


  1. Hi Laurie! Love your new sign!! I'm with you and am trying to hold out until after Thanksgiving to start decorating for Christmas. I have to say it is so much harder this year because of all of the inspiration on instragram and the blogs which last year I didn't follow. Can't wait to see what your creative mind comes up with!!!! Thanks for sharing! Oh and it's Chris from IG- @chris_belcher4 :)

  2. That sign is absolutely gorgeous!! It fits perfectly in your space :)
    Our home is still rocking all things Fall and proud of it! We usually decorate for Christmas a few days after Thanksgiving. I feel no need to rush Fall along :)
    Love your dining room as well!
