If you have been following me for a while, you will have seen a few of my fall and harvest displays. I thought I would consolidate a few displays of vintage fall farmhouse decor and also add some new ones that I have not posted yet. I hope you will get some ideas and see the key elements I have highlighted to inspire you for your own fall and harvest displays.

I just love the fall. It is truly my favorite season. Not too hot, not too cold, and the gorgeous fall show of colors with the oranges, browns, reds, omg! Here is one of my original displays in my vintage farmhouse hutch. I was able to find these lovely (lol) orange placemats and a few pumpkins and real gourds to give it the harvest theme. I always loved green and orange together when I was a kid, I remember doing some artwork in those colors. People must have thought I was nuts!
Farmhouse tray – Fall Table Display
Another fairly recent display I did was this table centerpiece. I was experimenting with some inexpensive finds from Walmart and was amazed at how realistic the pumpkins looked. I also added some of my own decor touches in that big farmhouse tray, a must for any table centerpiece.
Mix of vintage farmhouse Decor with nature:
Another version of my hutch display is below, this time using some of the items I had from the table display. Lots of options! I also found those lovely turkey salt and pepper shakers in porcelain. I intermixed some porcelain vintage collectibles with the bright vegetables, leaves and pinecones. The vintage white porcelain goes so well with the oranges, reds and browns. Who knew!!
Here is a puzzle for you. Can you tell which of the items below are artificial and which are real, the acorns or the pinecones?
Actually, the acorns are artificial! I saw them when I was buying the pumpkins and they looked so authentic, an easy add to any display. Also the pinecones are another must for your displays. These both can be gathered in your yard, or nearby park or forest.
More Fall Vignettes with Antiquarian Books and more
As promised, here are some very recent fall / harvest vignettes that I just love putting together. I am a big fan of old books including classic poets, literature in original form as well as miniatures. The colors of this vintage plate is amazing with the browns and reds. It is only marked Standard China made in England. The vintage watercolor miniature is one of a pair. I put these with one of my mother’s vintage ink wells in amber glass and of course a book by a classic English poet.
Another one of my fall vignettes below includes a brown farm telephone insulator, a vintage Indigenous necklace with brown beads, and a vintage fall Iittala painted plate from Finland, labelled Autum atmosphere. Again the vintage book with the brown color just oozes fall!
Wheat, wheat everywhere
The fields of wheat that surrounded our farm were so amazing. When I was young, I used to remember walking in the wheat fields and the stalks seemed to rise up so much higher back then. Hmm, I guess that makes sense. Great memories of playing hide and seek in the wheat field! Hopefully we didn’t trample too much!
It wouldn’t be fall without harvest and an ode to wheat. I have always been a bit crazy about wheat and over the years I have collected a few items displaying wheat symbols. Here are a couple, including a vase which has barely survived my moves across the country. It was broken in Ottawa and I had to glue it together. Some of the actual wheat below, the aged wheat, was displayed in it for years. The rest of the fresh green wheat was pulled from the wheat field on our old farm this summer! (don’t tell!). Here’s me walking through our old farmyard this summer with the precious bundle in hand 😉
I recently also bought this copper tin with this glorious wheat sheath on it. Also shown is a small Wade hand-painted bowl in gold plate, with a wheat shaft on it. Lastly, an old vintage ketchup bottle with grains of wheat from who knows when. This was collected and kept by my dad, so I think it must be from the 70’s.
Chickens of course!
Any fall display would not be complete without some chickens! I started collecting porcelain painted chickens, hens and roosters. All of these are great for your displays!
Lastly, I posted this vignette of miniature vintage Hummel prints depicting country children. So cute! They look good amongst the basket and pumpkins, if I say so myself.
I hope you enjoyed these fall displays and get some ideas for your own fall and harvest celebrations. Don’t forget to view my earlier fall displays in my previous Country Thanksgiving post with some updated decor ideas and new listings for Harvest Fall Decor from Amazon.
As well, if you like Turkey and Stuffing, there’s always a good Turkey dinner, country style, to take a gander at.
