Happy Friday friends! I am beyond ready for the weekend! So, what are you doing this weekend? I am hosting a party, and I am looking forward to having friends over to celebrate the season. I’ll make sure to post the details and pics soon. In the meantime I thought I’d share a few quick pics to show I do Fall decor in my home. I’m not an expert by any stretch; however, I am a firm believer in looking at lots of pics to get ideas for myself. So, maybe these pics will give you some ideas you can use as well.
So, when you enter my home you come into my foyer area. I have curved, striped wall with a pretty bold little circular table. Here’s where you get your first glimpse of the season. As you can see, it’s fall but not “Halloween.” I can keep this up through Thanksgiving.
Looking on in, you see my dining room. Here is where I have a large chalkboard that I bring out for the holidays. Again, I have kept things seasonal so that they can stay out through November.
I love being able to add a touch of the season without having to completely re-work my entire home. Moving into my family room, I’ve added a few touches around the room.
On one of my end tables, you’ll find this dough bowl filled with a fall mix or leaves, pinecones, and small berries along with a candle. I love the texture and the feel of bringing nature indoors. I’ve also added a cloche with white pumpkins. I think it feels festive and seasonal, but not in an overwhelming way.
On one end of my console table, i have stacked some vintage books along with a lantern filled with grapevine orbs and my nose sculptures. I also love the addition of Casa beads as well. You’ll notice that none of this is especially fall or seasonal; however the grapevine definitely feels right for fall. On the other end of the table, you’ll see a nod to Halloween and another touch of grapevine.
On the console under our television, I’ve added a some Halloween touches. Miniature pumpkins fill a candy jar, but I love the silly jack-o-lantern the best.
The other end of my console holds the paid pumpkin that I made earlier. You can read how to do that here.
On my coffee table, I’ve added a gold gilt pumpkin and a new favorite cinnamon pumpkin candle. It makes everything feel so much more cozy.
The final addition to my family room is a few seasonal throw pillows. I have a few more to finish this room up, but I adore this one that I got from Craftberry Bush.
In my kitchen, I’ve added just small touches. I added this black and white striped pumpkin to one little corner. You can find on like it here and it’s on sale!
I also added these small pumpkins and some greenery to another corner. You can find this pedestal here.
Finally, I dressed up my 3-tier stand that is sitting on my breakfast table. I added a few pumpkins and gourds along with some jack-o-lanterns.
As you can see, I enjoy adding holiday and seasonal touches. However, I do not want my home to feel more like a retail store packed with holiday decor items. In other words, I don’t want to go overboard. Instead, I like adding a few things and keeping it relatively simple.
One way to keep it simple is to remove your regular decor items first so that your space is not over-full. Then, sit out only the items that your really love. I’ve learned that I do not have to put it ALL out. I also try to keep my decor more classic and not cartoony or overly child-like. Does that make sense? And as you can see, most of these items will be up through Thanksgiving. After that, it’s all packed up and it’s time to do Christmas. 🙂
Well, there you have it. For what it’s worth, Fall decor my way. I hope I’ve given you a few ideas that you can use or maybe just something to think about when you begin decorating. It’s taken me a long time to learn that sometimes less is really more.
i’m so glad you visited today and hope you’ll visit again soon. I love to hear from my readers, so please take a moment to send me a comment below. And of course, you can leave me your email here so that I can alert you whenever I have a new post.
Until next time~
