Decorating a china cabinet hutch for Fall to create a pretty display using dried floral and Autumn touches.
Pretty Fall Decorating Ideas for a China Cabinet
This Fall I am using lots of natural decor throughout my home and continued that look when I decorated the china cabinet too.
On the final stop of my Fall home tour, I am going to show you how I decorated the china cabinet hutch for Fall.
In the corner of my dining area is a corner china cabinet. It came with the house and was that dark 80s stain color. So far I have repainted it 3 times.
For the past couple of years, it’s been a dark green shade, Sherwin Williams ‘Coriander & Olive’. The green shade adds a pop of color to my kitchen and also makes a great backdrop for when I decorate it for each season.
The wall color in my kitchen is Sherwin Williams ‘Ancient Marble’ which is a neutral light green shade. Personally, I think it’s such a great choice if you are looking for something other than a gray or beige neutral paint color for your home.
We have it in the kitchen/dining area, living room, and hallway. It looks fantastic in the sunlight too!
The kitchen china cabinet is definitely one of my favorite areas of my home to decorate for every season.
I love that there are 3 areas to decorate, on top, inside, and the bottom shelf…oh, and I usually use one of the cabinet pulls to hang something too.
For Fall, all I did was hang a Dollar Tree burlap leaf and a few felted acorns that I picked up at Lee & Co.

I love decorating my home throughout the year!
Top of China Cabinet
On top of the cabinet, I added an oval wicker basket for a little bit of height. Across the front, I strung a garland made from pine cones, raffia pumpkins, and leaves (Michael’s). Then a green pitcher with some dried flowers from my garden.
It’s Fall…so I think it’s required I pop pumpkins somewhere in here.
A couple of pumpkins filled in the rest of this space. One a faux green and the other a rattan pumpkin (I’ve had it for close to 10 years I think)

Adding Fall Touches Inside China Hutch
Inside the glass doors of the china cabinet, I stuck with mostly white pieces that I already had, mostly from thrift & vintage stores over the past couple of years.
On the top shelf of the china cabinet, I put together a vintage-looking footed planter display.
First I popped a small pot of ivy in and then put a mini grapevine wreath around it.
To cover the plastic pot I used Spanish moss and finished it off with a mini pumpkin and a dried yarrow stem.
A tarnished silver bud vase that I found at Savers thrift store for $1.99 holds a handful of tiny dried poppy pods.
The copper tray was also a thrift store find, it was in pretty rough shape but I used a little Rub & Buff on it and now it looks like real copper!
Almost the entire inside of the cabinet is decorated with things that I scored at the thrift store! I didn’t even realize it until I was looking at the pictures!
The white ironstone creamer and dessert plates were also from Savers.
Inside the creamer, there are a few pieces of vintage silverware that belonged to my grandmother.
my best tips
Shopping at the thrift store is one of my best tips for curating a nice collection of decorating pieces without breaking the bank.
It’s nice to mix old and new in her home to create your own style.
bottom hutch shelf
On the bottom shelf of the china cabinet are 2 of my favorite little pieces, these white tricorne hat-wearing Tobey jugs. Being a New England girl you know that I love anything that has a colonial flair to it.
This ironstone soup tureen was yet another Savers thrift store find! To continue the natural feel I am trying to create this Fall season I filled the tureen with dried Little Quick Fire hydrangea stems. This variety of hydrangea turns the pretties magenta when it dries!

Bottom Open Shelf
dried flower display
To create a beautiful, natural display to use as the centerpiece of the open bottom shelf I gathered a few dried flowers from my garden. Here you see celosia and yarrow.
For the base, I am using a round-footed pedestal (also a thrift store find).
I made a mini wreath with a piece of grapevine garland wrapped with a length of chiffon ribbon.
Then I ran the dried flower stems around the grapevine wreath. In addition to the celosia and yarrow, I used red amaranth, starflower, and globe thistles from my garden.
A few felted natural-colored pumpkins finished off the display.
Cut Flower Garden
my top flowers to grow
If you’ve wanted to start a flower garden so you can have fresh flowers but not sure what to grow read this article.
It’s the perfect way to remember my garden now that the seasons are changing! The celosia and amaranth hold their pretty colors too (as long as I keep them away from direct sunlight).
A fresh pumpkin with the neatest twisted stem brings in the Fall feels.
The last thing I did was fill a vintage copper kettle with a few dried stems. This was a $5 flea market find!! It was the only thing that I found that day but I left happy!!
Finished China Cabinet Decorated for Fall
The white main pieces that I used, along with the dried flowers, and copper accents create such a pretty cottage look for the Autumn season!
