Welcome to the second most wonderful time of the year! Second only to Christmas. 😉
I’ll be honest it still feels like summer here in Florida. I grew up in Nebraska and Iowa where there is “real fall”. So when I see pumpkins and scarecrows is seems weird to be wearing shorts and t-shirts!
Even though it looks like fall at our house, it feels like summer.
The past few years, I have cut back on the extent of my seasonal decor, and love the simplicity of it. If you blink, you may miss it!
So I’ll share what I used to decorate and where it all came from, but I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.
I hope you enjoy!
As of the end of September, the front door is the only thing that is decorated outside. Sometime in the middle of October we plan to get a pumpkin and probably a mum. If you want to see it, make sure you follow me on Instagram where I will share it.
On the front door I hung my well-loved grapevine wreath* which I have used over and over again. The W was cut from a cereal box and wrapped with twine from Dollar Tree. About half way through wrapping that little booger, I was ready to call it quits! But I stuck with it, and I think it looks pretty good.
The leaves are made from a simple pick that I bought from Hobby Lobby for less than a dollar and a few faux leaves that I purchased from Dollar Tree years ago.
When you walk into our home, one of the first things you see is this empty frame in the entryway. I like to decorate it for the changing seasons. For fall, I simply added a few leaves.
Here is an overview of our dining room. You can see that I didn’t go to crazy in here. The corner shelf has a few pumpkins, fall leaves, and branches from our yard. The chalkboard has a simple leaf garland around it.
In the living room, I didn’t decorate much. There is an incredibly long shelf above the window in the living room which I usually decorate for the seasons. However I’m planning on taking the shelf down and adding curtains soon. That wall needs some cozying up!
For now, I added some branches from outside along with some fall decor and other random objects. The little flowered bowl is actually part of a measuring cup set* from Pioneer Women’s line at Wal-Mart. I love how it ties all of the fall colors together with my antique blue pitcher.
So that is it! I hope that you enjoyed a peek at my fall decor.
What is your favorite area of your home to decorate for fall?
