Fall Nature Table

We finally have our nature table back in action! It was put away for awhile after our move, but we finally got it going again. I forgot just how much I missed it!

We have our usual fall items up~ our wooden squirrel, a pine cone and other nature treasures and some little decorations. I’m excited to watch our nature table change and grow with the season.

This is the first time Theodore has been old enough to even be aware of its existence. I have it down low enough on a little table so he can reach it.  He’s loves taking things off the table and then putting them back~ he’s very proud of himself!

We’ve been having a harder time with the mini pumpkins though. He either wants to throw them like balls or eat them like apples! And I had to remove the little candle holders~ he was obsessed with hiding them all over the house. We’ll pull those out another time.

I also love having it right next to our fall books. (Here’s my previous fall book entry with our list of favorite fall books). It really has made the whole little area fun and festive.  Now, if the weather would just cooperate~ 80’s and sunny today!

  1. Love your 3 tiered approach! What a splendid idea in so many ways!

    It’s interesting living in a warm climate when talking about “seasonal” nature tables. We live in Florida and, after living here for 2 years, we’re starting to observe the subtle seasonal changes. I do miss “Fall” as others know it, but it’s been nice to hone our Wonder and Observation skills to see how autumn is different from summer — even on the Gulf Coast (:

    glad to find yo uon the link up (:

      That’s so true! We just moved away from a city where we experienced the seasons more drastically than where we are currently. It’s been a great learning experience and definitely does lend itself to honing in on those observation skills as you said.

    That nature stand is sweet! I would love to find one like it. Do you know of any places that sell them?

    That stand is beautiful! Such a great way to Put together a nature table. Your book display shelves to the side work so well for seasonal (literary) decorating. Where did you get them?

      Thanks, Angela! They are actually spice racks from IKEA~ only $3.99 a piece! I can’t take credit for the idea though, I’ve been seeing others doing the same thing all over Pinterest! Lucy is actually in the process of painting some for her room. Will post pictures once they’re hung.
