Today I thought I would share some easy ways to add simple Fall touches to your home. Last year I went through my Fall decor and donated a lot of the things that I thought I would no longer use. When I pulled out my bins this year, I was kind of thinking I had made a mistake in getting rid of some of my decor. Things were looking a bit sparse at first but now I am enjoying the simple Fall touches and using items I have on hand with a few new additions.
It has been almost one year since my last post and it’s not like I have been too busy either. Since the beginning of the pandemic in March, I have pretty much been homebound. And I mean homebound. I started the shutdown full of nervous energy and completed a lot of mini projects that needed to be done. 4 months into the pandemic the energy started to fizzle. Now that Fall has arrived and we are entering into my favorite time of year, I am perking back up! I hope you enjoy my mini Fall Tour. Here we go!
A few new items this year is the mini riser that the pumpkin is perched on and the stems with the mini pumpkins. I ordered these from The Nested Fig. I love this online store. I also follow Wesley on instagram @FarmShenanigans. Love, love, love his stories! I have learned so much from him and have gotten a lot of great inspiration from all the decorating tips he shares.
I also added my Dollar Store DIY pumpkins. You can see the DIY here. I have also been using these battery operated remote candles from Amazon and I am loving them. The last items I bought were two vintage tablecloths from ETSY.
I purchased the tablecloths from PollyFrog on ETSY. I just added them to my vintage copper pots on my buffet, a simple and easy way to add Fall touches.
I rounded out the Dining Room decor with a few gourds that I have had for years and I added a couple of mini jack o lanterns to my teak boat ladder that we picked up at a yard sale a few years back.
In the kitchen, I kept it simple with my sign that I made two years ago. I placed it above the cooktop. Notice the toilet paper pumpkin my youngest made in preschool 14 years ago. Don’t think for a minute that I didn’t think about dragging that out at the beginning of the pandemic when toilet paper was nowhere to be found!
In the living room, I added pops of orange with pillows and a throw that I had from previous years. I also used my favorite pumpkin that my older boys picked out over twenty years ago which I guess makes it vintage now.
One of the most used rooms in our home is the sunroom. I kept it very simple in here. I scattered a few pumpkins and that is it.
I love this little table. It has been moved from room to room but I think this is my favorite spot. I picked it up at a thrift store a long time ago and it’s been painted about three different times. A cheap and easy refresh!
As for the outside, I kept it very simple with pumpkins, a few mums and ornamental pepper plants.
I have shared this plant stand before. When I went home to visit my parents, I took my mama thrifting and I found this. It used to be on the porch of my mom’s neighbor when she was a child. I just like that it is now on my back deck, it’s a little piece of home.
That wraps up my little Fall home tour. Now that we are into my favorite time of year, hopefully, I will be posting a bit more. I hope you all enjoyed this little glimpse into my home.
Until Next Time,
