I thought it might be fun to share some pantry cabinet ideas for fall. I have some organizational tips and some fun ideas to enhance the items in your pantry!
There is one item in this post that you have to make now! I shared it recently but I am going to mention it once again. It’s my favorite gift to make for the holidays but it won’t be ready for a few months. Now is the time to make it if you want to give this gift for the holidays.
Pantry Cabinet Ideas
Apparently organizing in the fall is a popular thing.
I thought it might be fun to share some pantry cabinet ideas for fall. But here’s the thing.
To be honest, I organize my pantry every fall with one goal.
That goal is to get ready for the holidays! There is so much cooking that will happen in our house for the next four months that I like to get organized now.
I am not kidding.
All of my pantry cabinet ideas this fall are about getting ready for holiday entertaining.
Our Food Pantry
Generally speaking, we have a small food pantry. This is it.
We also have a beautiful butler’s pantry but you probably are aware that it is full of dinner plates, glassware, napkins, and more.
So I am a bit limited in space which leads me to this.
Every few months my pantry gravitates to this style of organization.
Or lack of organization.
How does this happen?
It is because I have been cooking dinner five to six nights a week for … like … forever!
Fortunately, cleaning out our food pantry was not difficult. I checked the expiration dates on everything, reorganized a lot, and looked for traces of pantry moths. I don’t know about you but we struggle with these obnoxious moths. Somehow they can get inside a Ziploc bag.
I use the sticky pantry moth traps and they do an amazing job.
My pantry is different than most because I have a lot of homemade items in my pantry.
Personalized Pantry Jars
A few years ago I made labels for my pantry jars. You can make your own or buy them. Of course, I made mine!
Homemade Vanilla – The Best Holiday Gift
I make homemade vanilla every year. It is wonderful to have on hand for baking and I also give it away as hostess and holiday gifts.
Homemade Infused Olive Oil
I love to make infused oils. My garden was full of herbs, so I went out to my garden and clipped some fresh basil, tarragon, oregano, and rosemary. It is so easy to make these because all you do is place the clean herbs in the bottles and fill them with olive oil.
How to Make Infused Olive Oil
- Clean the fresh herbs by wiping them off and letting them dry (for a few hours) if they are wet.
- Add the herbs to a jar (with a sealed lid) and fill with olive oil.
- Store in an airtight container.
- While olive oil lasts about 12 months, infused olive oil only lasts a week at room temperature. I use my infused oil to make homemade salad dressings and store the dressing in the refrigerator for weeks.
You can also make your own decorative dispenser to store regular olive oil.
I made my own oil dispensers and also used a vintage decanter. These are so awesome!
An Organized Pantry is a Good Thing
I love how clean my pantry is now!
I went through my entire pantry and made sure I had everything I would need for entertaining during the holidays. It’s important to check all your spices, bottles of vinegar, oils, and baking items so that you don’t get caught unable to make a recipe!
I also ordered a few of my favorite items I need to make some of my special holiday baking recipes.
See the Butternut Squash on the second shelf? I had no idea I had it and it’s good until after Thanksgiving. I use it to make my Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter Sauce and Butternut Squash Soup.
Of course, I will be ordering more for the holidays.
