Fall Home Tour

Happy Thursday and Happy September 22nd…or as my calendar says, “autumn begins…”

Well, it’s my favorite time of the year! In case you missed the memo, I love fall. Also, I love a good quote, so here are a few of my favorite fall quotes:

I finally had the chance to decorate over the weekend. Actually, I thought I would be able to decorate one day last week, but I couldn’t find my tub of fall decorations.

We found it under the basement stairs on Friday. I’d forgotten that last year I purged and went from two tubs to one by donating or tossing older fall decor.

Friday night before we went to my school’s football game, I pulled a few things out trying to remember where I usually put things….by Saturday morning when I wanted to finish up, I turned to last year’s blog post to help me out!

I’m basically Oprah for pumpkins. “You get a pumpkin and you get a pumpkin…” haha

I know I love a good home tour…especially a seasonal one, but these blog posts also help me remember where I put my decorations!

Last year’s post started with my front porch, but the only thing I have out there right now are two mums in my planters. I hope to start adding to the porch this weekend.

Entryway:

I put my decorations in the exact same spot on the entry table as last year. The only thing that is different is that I now have two arches here (year round) instead of our family photo.

A few faux flowers, a tea light, and some pumpkins spruce up this table.

Living room:

I love the tray on the coffee table in the living room. It’s a great spot to change out seasonal decor. I’ve had this light up pumpkin (I have two) for two years, and it’s a favorite. A pumpkin spice candle from Antique Candle Co and a small fall wreath for the base of the candle are all I needed to create some cozy.

One of my Michael’s purchases this year, was this wooden pumpkin candle lantern. It fits perfectly on the wooden stool. My other decorations I’ve had for years. I add a few fall touches to our built ins, and then change the candle in the fire place lantern. We’ve had this little jack-o-lantern (with a tealight) for years, and it’s always nostalgic to put out. The kids always loved it when they were little.

I used the same pumpkin pillows that I’ve had for a couple of years. I love how they look on our new couch.

Office:

I keep it pretty simple in the office and just swap out the chair pillows for my “Morning Pumpkin” pillows. Then, this year, I decided to put out this fave pic of the kids in the frame that always sits on that table. This was October 2010 and Hayden and Hadley’s first trip to the pumpkin patch…such a sweet memory.

Kitchen:

I love this plaid pumpkin pillow in our sitting area. I picked up the turquoise pumpkin at Home Goods a couple of weeks ago, and added it to our island tray. It’s actually a candle, but I’ve been burning the Trader Joe’s Vanilla Pumpkin one recently. I always change out a nice hand towel each season on the oven, and put this pumpkin sign where one of my favorite cookbooks typically sits. I added the apple cider candle too.

The buffet is a fun area to decorate. I change out the flowers as well as my China plates to include these cute pumpkin ones.

Last year, I got this table runner and then I’ve had these plate for a few years. I picked them up at Target. I also add a couple of pumpkins in the tray.

The fireplace is my favorite part. Orange candles, leaves and pumpkin garland. So easy to hang up. I picked up the “Gather with a grateful heart” sign at Michael’s as well as the yellow pumpkins.

I have cute little metal stands that usually have topiaries in them, and I wanted something for fall to sit in them. I picked up these pumpkins the other day. They come in orange, yellow, and white. I chose yellow to compliment my orange candles. (By the way: Fall decorations at Michael’s were 40% off) {At this point, I feel like Michael’s should sponsor this post!)

Then, I added a string of lights behind the fall leaves for a little extra glow at night.

Sun room:

Swapping our regular pillows for these pumpkins ones as well as the burnt orange throw are a quick way to decorate out here.

I always change out the candle on the tray as well as the back door wreath to something more fall appropriate. I’ve had the plug in pumpkin for years, and actually didn’t have a spot for it in the living room like usual thanks to the mirror I bought last year. Anyway, I decided to move a lamp and plug in the pumpkin on the nights we sit in the sun room.

Bedroom:

I keep it very simple in the bedroom with a season candle and another one of the pumpkins from Michael’s. It’s nice to read or fall asleep at night to the glow of the pumpkin and a fall scent.

Yesterday, was 90+ degrees, and today the high is 70 with some 60 degree temps in the future too. It’s like Mother Nature knew what she was doing 😉

With cooler temps finally arriving, I definitely hope to get the front porch decorated this weekend.

Happy Fall {y’all!}

  1. Your decor is perfect and very much my style! I am obsessed with white pumpkins now and I have a bunch of tiny faux ones. I need to finish decorating. I have had workers in the house doing my hall bath and everything has been in disarray this week. I have opened my tubs and they are sitting there in the basement waiting for me. Most of my decor is just fall now, but I have a few touches of Halloween.

  2. So cute! The vases with the fall stems in the entryway may be my favorite. But you know how I am with any sort of plant thing. ☺️ Love how you incorporate the fall decor so seamlessly into the other decor!

    1. Thanks! Through the years, I realized (& tried to buy accordingly) that if I could just swap “this for that” then I can decorate quicker…rather than totally moving things around…

  3. I love your style of decorating! Everything looks great. I really, really love those light up pumpkins. I love all your pillows too…I don’t switch out my pillows just because of our dogs, and I use the type of covers that are removeable so that I can wash them often. They all love to lounge on the pillows! Our dogs are so spoiled. Fall makes me so happy! It was 100 degrees in Memphis yesterday and today the high is 80. PRAISE.

  4. So many cute little fall touches everywhere! I just bought a stick pumpkin with lights the other day and I love it. I actually had to go out and buy a lot more decorations since I finally got to decorate the finished basement as well. I had a lot of fun shopping TJ Maxx’s seasonal section.

  5. Thanks for the reminder – I just added ‘decorate for fall’ and ‘mums’ to my to do list. I love your little touches, I may need to swing by Homesense (which I think is your Home Goods) for a few new things 😉
