Decorating for fall and, soon after, for Christmas are two of my favorite things. The level of cheer in our home goes up a couple notches with seasonal decorations for my two favorite times of the year. We are in the midst of some rather major home projects currently, and it is nice to do some simple decorating instead of a big renovation. It’s the small touches like branches from the yard, fresh cut hydrangea, and pumpkins everywhere that bring Autumn home and get me excited for this season of change, beauty, cozy nights, sunny days, fresh apples, pumpkin spice, and traditions.
I will let the pictures do the talking. Come on in.

Decorating for fall doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive. The only things I bought were two small mums, some fresh pumpkins, and that new table runner to create my tablescape. Then I painted some of the small pumpkins with paint pens, gathered hydrangeas and sticks from the yard, got out some blankets, displayed our apples in a red bowl, and made use of our existing chalkboards.

Whenever I decorate seasonally, I love to take a look at the things we already have (whether on display, in storage, or even in the yard) and just give them a fresh, seasonal spin.

Happy Fall, Y’all.
