Time to decorate for Autumn. When this time of year rolls around I get very excited. I mean I love to decorate, but once September hits, I am in full overload, my mind is going a million miles a minute. I mean there is Christmas Decorating to plan for, ideas are whirling through my head, and fall decorating, lets stay focused here. For Fall I don’t like to take away any of the things I already have in place and love, so I simply add in a few touches here and there. I literally have only a few pumpkins, a flower pot of wheat, and some flowers. I carried every thing up from the basement in one trip. So in 30 minutes flat I decorated the living room and dining room. Besides the grapevine project/centerpiece which did take about 15 additional minutes. So for very little money, you can add in a few small touches and have a home ready for fall. Still adding in those few touches really seems to bring the house to life, everything seems a little more cozy and welcoming. I love adding in browns and golds to my cool colored rooms to make them look and feel warm for fall and winter. I will do a little more for Thanksgiving, just a few tweaks and additional décor. But I start my Christmas decorating the first week of November, so by Thanksgiving Day it is all in place.
First the metal cloche that I have had for years and so love and adore filling it with lovely things. How about a white fat pumpkin and a bed of reindeer moss.
Behind this table you can get a peek at a crock full of pheasant feathers and a green pumpkin.
I filled my glass cloche on the coffee table with some smaller pumpkins, in the back ground you can see my new Thankful pillow from Bowsandburlap
Here is a better shot of the pillow.
On top of my armoire I simply added in 2 pumpkins to the existing décor.
On top of my sideboard that small flower pot of wheat and a faux gourd.
The table centerpiece was a little project I did with grapevine. And I potted a $2.98 mum in the bottom of a soup tureen.
Here is the one flower arrangement I made for fall.
My piano received 2 little pumpkins.
And of course my mantle got a touch of fall as well.
And lets not forget this lonely pumpkin in front of my great-grandmothers painting.
You don’t need to spend a lot on seasonal décor. I have only one small bin for fall. I still plan to do a little something on the porch.
Have a wonderful Autumn Season, make sure to go on a hay ride, go to a pumpkin patch, maybe a corn maze, but find something fun to do and enjoy the season.
