Decorating for Fall

Wow! I can not believe it's already October! Let's be honest... I started decorating for fall on September 1st. I always try to be one step ahead - especially when it comes to seasonal decor- after all I feel like it's a very limited time that we can enjoy how beautiful our home looks and (smells) with all the seasonal decor.

This year, I finally have the opportunity to show you how I decorate and fill you in on all the must haves for the season- it's not too late to decorate... we still have November!

We are in the midst of ripping out and re-doing our landscaping so it leaves little to be desired at the moment but at the same time it allows me to shift my focus to the porches ( we have several). Our side porch is the most used and typically the first one our guest see...so I started here. I was inspired by the array of Pumpkins lining the porch of Liz Galvins farmhouse. I love the heirloom pumpkins- those are a must! I then tucked in mums and dusty miller since ornamental cabbage isn't in season yet for us.

On the inside I love to use natural elements and bring the outdoors inside. This year I really dove into the fall color pallet and used yellows and oranges to mix. I love decorating with wreaths, fresh or faux greenery and dried wheat. I found that Terrain has THE best greenery and worth the splurge!

In the kitchen- I love to keep things simple and steer away from anything that causes clutter. I opt for fresh fall blooms and to add more flair to our open shelving- I accented the shelves with small white pumpkins. Last but not least... add the coziness to your home with a candle. I have several favorite fall scents- I love the apple cider candle by DW- you can find it at homegoods/tjmaxx and my most recent purchase is the antique candle works candle in fall harvest- so good!
