Fall Preview 2017 ~ MacKenzie-Childs

August 24, 2017

By Tab Byrum

As you well know by now I’m a big fan of all the merchandise and creations from MacKenzie-Childs, especially all of their seasonal and holiday merchandise. Their black and white Courtly Check and stripes work so well with so many other patterns and colors, especially the golds and oranges of Fall. They always have a wide array of pumpkins to choose from and this year doesn’t disappoint, with pumpkins featuring gilding, checks, stripes, and polka dots. I always love to see what they come out with in the way of placemats and this year’s new Pheasant design is gorgeous as well as the fun dish towels that will make great hostess gifts. Enough talk, let’s shop. Enjoy!!!

Candle holders and candlesticks are among my favorite things to use to decorate, these Courtly Stripe Pumpkin Candlesticks are great and will add fun and flair to any table or display. 

Rugs and Pillows are a great thing to change out for the different seasons and the Pheasant Scatter Rug is beautiful. It combines Courtly Check and Stripe with Fall leaves, wheat and a beautiful pheasant. 

The Golden Frost Pumpkin looks like it was touch by Picasso more so than Jack Frost, the Courtly Check pumpkin kissed by gilding is a wonderful addition to any Fall decor. 


As I said earlier, these Autumn Strut Dishtowels or the Pumpkin Dishtowel would make great hostess gifts for any Fall parties or get togethers. 

Polka Dots are always a fun and playful decorating scheme and the Dotty Pumpkins in Orange and White definitely fill the bill. 

The Pheasant design seen earlier on a rug is also available on placemats, the Pheasant Placemats are one of my favorite things from MC this Fall. 


The Autumn Bounty Pillow is a real treasure, covered in sequin embroidery on beautiful brown velvet. We have pumpkins and gourds gathered in a Courtly Check colander. 

I have a soft spot for topiaries of any kind, I love the idea of stacking fun or beautiful items in precarious poses and the Stacking Pumpkins in Black and White would look great on the dining table, a mantle or the entryway. 

As always, I hope you’ve found some inspiration for decorating your home as we head into the Autumn season. Remember, you don’t have to buy it all, just add a piece here and there. Have a great day and Enjoy!!!
