Feathers - Pearls and Silver

I have been tweaking the final touches of fall for the living/dining area and decided I needed to do something on the buffet.  I love pearls and I love feathers, so maybe a bouquet of feathers and pearls in a silver champagne bucket?

I am trying to continue the simple rustic look of fall that I have, with just a touch of elegant thrown in.

The silver, crystal and feathers continue the theme on the dining table.

A simple glass egg under the cloche continues the sparkle and shine.

.The crystal decanters and pitchers are inherited and thrift store finds.

Add in a feather and pearl bouquet and I think I am done.

This arrangement adds just enough whimsy to be fun.

You can see the dining table post here.

 I am calling these areas done.

You can also see my country check pumpkins on this post.

Now to spread a little fall around in the familyroom and kitchen.  So are you done or are you just starting too.?
