The Acorn Block Print

This is my third year in a row developing an Acorn Block Print for the Fall Collection.  It is always one of the most anticipated prints.  At the end of summer, we get so many inquiries - will you have an acorn print this fall?!

The acorn is one of those symbols that is (obvious) autumnal, but also seasonless.  I designed this print to be something you could have in your home year round, not just in the fall.  I especially love using acorns during the holiday season, so I plan to incorporate this into our holiday decor, as well.  In the past couple of years, I've really gravitated more toward using natural greens and golds at Christmastime - this will work beautifully.

During the fall months, we gather so many acorns.  I especially love them when they are still green and light brown - such beautiful, muted colors that inspired these block prints.

Inserts : 
I use Ikea inserts for all of the Cushion Covers in my store.  So, you can invest in the inserts from Ikea (inexpensive!!) once, and then switch out covers from my store each season like I do.

Ikea 26" Insert  ($9.99) for my 22" Pillow Covers

Ikea 20" Insert ($5.99) for my 20" Pillow Covers

Ikea Rectangle 26x16" Insert ($6.99) for my Rectangle Pillow Cover

Acorn Tags, 10 for $10

I love how simple and stately this is.  I will tie this to packages and homemade gifts like loafs of pumpkin bread and boxes of cinnamon sugar donuts.

Acorn Tea Towel, $12, with Baked Donuts covered in cinnamon and sugar.

The block print tea towels are some of my favorite gifts.  I usually wrap them around something homemade or a bottle of wine for hostess/teacher/neighbor gifts.

I really like to pile or sofa deep with pillows.  Yes, they get strewn about, but they make our entire room feel really cozy and comfy.  

The Gold Fleur is the same as the gold of the acorn so they coordinate beautifully together.  

These two chairs ( always get rectangle pillows + throws over the back to make them extra comfy - they are the perfect size.  Layers are especially great in the fall to cozy everything up.

In just a week or two I'll be piling pumpkins in this room and that fire will be going... ok, maybe another month or two before the fire is neccesary  : )

I haven't yet set a table with the Acorn Table Runner & Napkins, but that is next on my list as soon as I can get my hands on some of those beautiful muted butternut pumpkins to put down the center of the table along with these Cafe Au Lait Candles.
