How to Decorate with Blue and White in the Fall

Hey, all you blue and white fans…

If you are like me, you love blue and white but don’t want to pack it away for fall.  Who says you have to?!

Here are some ways to decorate with blue and white in the fall:

White pumpkins in a blue and white bowl for fall

Just throw some pumpkins in a blue and white bowl with a little bit of faux bittersweet.

Suddenly that blue and white is looking quite festive!


Add a blue and white pumpkin to a rustic tray…

Isn’t this chinoiserie pumpkin gorgeous?  My friend, Karolyn from The Relished Roost painted it for me a couple years ago.  I love having it out in the middle of my island this time of year!  If you aren’t talented enough to paint something like this, consider doing a simple buffalo check instead.

Add some wheat to a pitcher…

How easy is that?  Now my bar tray has an autumn vibe.

Use a blue and white pot to hold mums…

Since you will probably be buying mums anyway, use your blue and white to dress them up!

Buy a bouquet of sunflowers and add them to your blue and white collection…

Since I have seen sunflowers in all the grocery stores and farm stands, they should be easy to find.  You can see more details on this tabletop vignette in my post, Blue and White with Sunflowers in the Foyer.

Add mini white pumpkins to your tablesettings…

Although, the blue and white was subtle in this tablesetting, it had a fall vibe due to the rustic pieces and the mini white pumpkins.   If you want to see how the whole table turned out, click over to Simple Fall Table Setting with White Pumpkins.

Speaking of pumpkins, why not add some orange ones to your blue and white collection…

After all, orange and blue are complementary colors.  Just adding a few pops of orange can really liven up the blue and white.

Speaking of orange, why not add some pillows…

Adding orange to update pillows for fall

Last year, I bought a few orange pillow covers on sale at Pottery Barn.  I switched out the pillows on my couch with the orange and loved how it looked with the blue.  You can see how they coordinated with my coffee table vignette by clicking over to my post, Simple Fall Vignette and a Couple Pillow Options.

Just add a white pumpkin or two to existing blue and white vignettes…

I hope I gave you some ideas to dress up your blue and white for the fall season!

Cheers to Blue and White for Fall!
