I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of the color orange. But at this time of year, there is no avoiding it. It's not easy to decorate with orange. However, I came across some autumn inspiration at Bella Cucina, a beautiful food shop I found while in Atlanta last week.
Bella Cucina is clean and elegant, in a rustic sort of way.
The proprietors use lots of pumpkins all around their store, but in an understated fashion that doesn't overpower their wares.
Most everything at Bella Cucina is neutral in color, so the pops of orange are lively and fun.
Doesn't this old farm table look great with a simple row of pumpkins down the center? Perfect!
Not only does Bella Cucina sell artful food, they definitely have an eye for display, as well.
Yes, you'll find orange pumpkins everywhere these days — except on our front stoop. You see, for the past three days, John and I have been in Philadelphia (once again, business for John, tagging along and pure fun for me). So with two trips recently, we haven't even had a chance to buy a pumpkin, let alone carve one.
We'll be driving home later today, hopefully arriving in time to hand out candy to the throngs of trick-or-treaters that come through our neighborhood. Until then, I'm off to explore Philly!
