So now it’s here, fall, you can really no longer call this late summer. We have beautiful days at the moment, even with warm temperatures during the day …. Nevertheless, the mornings and evenings are very cold. In the morning there is thick fog over the meadows and the leaves are changing color. Time to spread a little fall mood in the Pomponetti house.
Early fall mood after a non-existent summer
There was no summer, there is also nothing to gloss over. All the rain and the lack of sun have also catapulted nature into the next season at the speed of light. The fact that the summer was as good as skipped doesn’t help here either, but coming to terms with the facts does.
It’s not good for me to continue to cling convulsively to a summer that has itself given up since long time, even out in nature. All too early this year, I know. Whereas I decorated autumn last year only one week later
Nevertheless, I ordered the first pumpkins, and now lot eave the place to the fall messengers…. and quite honestly? I love this cheerful fall mood with pink calluna and the late summer hydrangea garlands.
Hydrangea garlands for fall decoration
- Hydrangea flowers in autumn colors ( dry best)
- fine wire ( bouillon wire)
In the large pepper wreath in the black bowl I put a lantern, in general, I have a lot of candles and lanterns.
In the vase I decorated grasses and poppy pods
Norwegian cinnamon buns, which I baked on Sunday quite spontaneously, go well with this. I like to make hazelnut crumble on top, who does not like it, just leave them out.
Norwegian cinnamon buns
- 500 g flour
- 1/2 Yeast dough
- 60 g sugar
- 250 ml milk
- 60 g butter
- 120 g soft butter
- 50 g sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 75 g flour
- 50 g ground hazelnuts
- 50 g sugar
- 1 Vanillasugar
- 60 g melted butter
First, make a yeast dough from the above ingredients. To do this, heat the butter and milk to lukewarm and mix with the yeast. Then mix the yeast solution with flour, sugar and cardamom to a smooth dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, cream the soft butter with sugar and cinnamon. Roll out the yeast dough into a rectangle and carefully coat with the mixture. Then roll up the dough from the long side and cut into 2cm thick slices. Place the slices with the cut surface facing upwards on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Cover and let rise for another 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees.
In the meantime, prepare the hazelnut crumble. Mix the flour, hazelnuts, sugar and vanilla sugar. Add the melted butter and knead the mixture well.
Finally, whisk the egg yolk with a little milk and brush the snails with it. Then add the crumbles.
Bake the cinnamon buns on the middle rack for about 20 minutes until golden brown
Autumn decoration ideas in the living room
Fall mood has also moved into the living room. The Annabel hydrangeas I have already brought in a few weeks ago. Initially, they were still in the water, but when they dried, I arranged them in the vase without water. Otherwise they would start to mold.
My Serax basket is decorated with a small rosehip wreath. In general, rose hips, small apples or pumpkins are great stylistic devices for autumn.
I made a hydrangea wreath for my white farmhouse cabinet. It has dried well in the meantime. Also the hydrangea arrangement with the candle in the middle is dry…. In my narrow tall green vase I arranged a green rosehip branch as well as an ornamental apple branch. You can find autumn branches in nature or at your local gardener.
With this fall mood I wish you a wonderful day, big hugs ♥♥♥
