Monday Must-Haves: Fall Turkeys and Pilgrims

Monday, September 19th, 2016

Large Turkey SculptureFeathered Turkey SculptureOur holiday season begins this week with the release of our newest catalog, and today we are highlighting five must-haves to enhance your harvest decor and get you ready for Thanksgiving.

Basket of Bounty Pilgrim Sculpture

Sculptures and Collectibles

Turkeys and folk art collectibles make joyful decor for the fall season, and these three new sculptures do so especially. This Large Turkey Sculpture would be charming in a centerpiece or on an entryway table to greet guests and spread Thanksgiving cheer throughout your home. His rustic exterior adds an antiqued look which will last year after year.

Making a slightly different impression with just as much charm, a Feathered Turkey Sculpture brings textural appeal to the table or a shelf. This particular sculpture is made in the USA and is a whimsical conversation piece among other turkey home accents.

Wild Turkey Pillow

The newest Williraye Studio™ collectible, also in our catalog, features a pilgrim couple who give thanks and present the season’s fruitful bounty to your home. Their folk art charm and earthy colors perfectly complement the season and other harvest keepsakes.

I'm Stuffed Thanksgiving Scroll

Wall Art and Pillows

You may recognize this square pillow if you shopped our last Harvest Sale. This year, our Wild Turkey Home Accents feature a warmer, beige background with a beautifully detailed scene of turkeys enjoying a fall day.

This pillow not only adds style and seasonal appeal to your home, it adds comfort to your sofa, a rustic bench or upholstered chair and is perfect for year-round use, too. It’s a great size and will add country charm to any room.

A more plump turkey can be found on our I’m Stuffed Thanksgiving Scroll, as can a relatable sentiment. With Victorian era-inspired clothing, you can create a primitive look with whimsy anywhere in your home while wishing all who gather around you a happy Thanksgiving.

What You Need for a Festive Fall Centerpiece

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Fall is in the air and our apple pies will soon be in the oven as we start entertaining and gathering for the autumn season. Something that makes your home a little warmer for guests, family and friends is seasonal decor, and more specifically, a beautiful centerpiece (or centerpieces!) on the dining room table. Here are a few items that will always turn your display into a work of wonder.

  • Pumpkins

Of course, right? Whether they are real, faux, made of glass or wicker, bright orange or different colors, incorporating pumpkins into your centerpiece is a must. You could even set out just three or four pumpkins and have an instant fall look.

  • Candles

We recommend using flameless candles for safety and everlasting effect, but real and scented candles are just as decorative. Place them in lanterns with mini leafy wreaths, or opt for colorful candles in yellow, orange, red and white to create an appealing presentation.

  • Leaves and Flowers

Speaking of leaves, scattering a few throughout your centerpiece is a simple way to add natural charm to a table, and golden hued flowers coordinate beautifully, especially when placed in decorative vases.

While your centerpiece may have many other decoratives within it – collectibles, linens, trugs filled with ornaments and baubles – the above can help you get started if you’re not sure where to begin, or want a simple look with not a lot of fuss. You certainly cannot go wrong with pumpkins, candles, leaves and flowers, so get decorating and welcome your guests with an inviting centerpiece this fall.

Favorite Fall Front Doors

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

We love a good first impression, and one of the best ways to ensure you make one on your guests or passerby this fall is by decorating your front door, porch or stoop. Whether you are an elaborate decorator or a minimalist, we hope you will be inspired by some of our favorite autumn looks.


This Spanish-inspired home already emanates the warmth found in autumn decor, so the simple one-sided styling adds seasonal flair without overdoing it. The flower basket filled with blooms and leaves on the door draws attention to the  fall charm of the pumpkins and plotted flowers as well as to the rest of the stoop.

Traditional Farmhouse

Even if you don’t reside here in a traditional farmhouse, you can still get the look by filling the space from the end of your walkway all the way to your door with greenery and seasonal blooms. Corn stalks and a natural wreath make your doorway blend in with its surroundings, and you can forget about picking up leaves – keep them around your mums and bushes to create a comfortably casual outdoor display.

Complementing Frame

This look is simple to throw together if you have a few pumpkins and potted flower arrangements. A complementary look – as opposed to a matching display – creates more visual interest and can be achieved by using oranges, reds and even white. Don’t forget the wreath!

Out of the Ordinary

Pumpkins and corn cobs provide the color at this front door, while branches, twigs, feathers and leaves offer whimsy and one of the most creative looks we have seen. The asymmetric framing draws us in to admire every part of this arrangement, and the subtle colors (apart from the pumpkins) make a display that is noticeable but not gaudy.

Green with Envy

While rich, warm colors take center stage during the autumn season, that doesn’t mean greens and pinks and blues can’t make an appealing statement. These corn stalks are still in their lush green state, which gives a fresh look to the rest of the porch. The pink in the wreath complements the orange pumpkin and golden yellow mums, which work well with the greenery surrounding them. Neutral toned bows and flower pots work well to bring the whole look together and make it easy on the eyes.

Fall Flourish

This exaggerated display is warm and welcoming because of its use of pumpkins throughout each arrangement, and the use of lights, a wreath and garland, whimsical characters, as well as wall art and accents. The hay bails add a natural touch, and it all looks neatly placed to welcome the harvest season and fall guests.
