Dining Room Decor to Fall for!

Let the fall season decor begin! 

Who else started getting in the fall spirit over the weekend?  Since I had a bunch of fall decor inspiration from my Friday posts (click for week 1 or week 2), I couldn't help but get started on some in our own house.  One of my favorite ideas I had been seeing out and about were glass domes/ cloches with pumpkins inside.  I just had to get my hands on a couple to bring together the decor I had in mind.  Well, that and some little white pumpkins...
Thankfully, I found a glass dome + mirror base at Bachman's for $34.99 (with a $5 off coupon) and another smaller cloche at Home Goods for $9.99.  I pulled together the rest with random decor elements we had around the house- except the white pumpkins
I picked up a bag from Home Depot along with some heirloom white spray paint totalling $10.49.  Once I got home I started spray painting my pumpkins white.  While spray painting my pumpkins I thought "I do some strange stuff for decorating & crafting".  Haha, anyone else feel like that a lot?
Anyway, back to the decor.  My goal with spray painting the pumpkins was to have a black, green, and white theme going on.  I didn't want any reds or oranges like I've done in the past, I wanted something totally fresh and different!  I added my freshly painted mini pumpkins along with some faux moss inside my larger glass dome on top of the mirror base on our dining room table.
I also tossed a bunch in an old metal basket with a larger gob of faux moss.
For the smaller glass cloche, added one of my mini bread boards from Diana at Our Vintage Home Love underneath along with a couple pumpkins, faux moss, and a vintage ampersand letter. 
 I'm loving how it all came together!

What do you think of the fall dining room decor?
What's your fall decor color scheme?
Who else has a hubby who's cringing about the fall and holiday decor seasons?!?! Haha!
