We decorated our house for Fall for the first time a few weeks ago. It's so nice that it's starting to feel like Fall outside to match the Fall feeling we have going on inside.
Let me give you a little tour...
Our family room. I missed having a mantle to decorate last year so this was the first space I focused on this year. It looks so pretty to have a long row of pumpkins and swags of leaves mixed in. I love it and it'll probably stay this way through Thanksgiving. I'll add some spooky touches when October rolls around, but the pumpkins are here to stay. Daniel Tiger is still a favorite at our house so it's appropriate that he photo bombed my picture.
pumpkins - Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, TJ Maxx
leaves - Dollar Tree
A candy corn foot print from Olive's first Halloween. I love pulling this framed foot print out every year. I'm already planning some foot print projects with Fletcher.
I add Fall touches to all of my tables. I usually try to pick up a new accessory or home decor item when we travel to a new city. They're my favorite kind of souvenirs to remember a place by. This glass blown pumpkin is from Key West. We hauled it home on a cruise ship five years ago. I smile thinking of key lime pie, beaches, ocean and adventure when I see it.
I love how my table came together! I got these burlap place mats as a gift from my MIL and I love them for Fall! They add a nice texture and color to the table. My fall florals are several years old, but I still love them. I may pick up a few more stems to add to the mix, but I haven't seen anything I loved. My cats adore the plate of acorns and I'm constantly finding them on the floor.

My front door is still sporting this gorgeous Sunflower Wreath that I made back in August. I'll probably leave it up for a few more weeks. I ended up buy mums for our front step, but I haven't done that yet. Sams had some really pretty, HUGE options so I should probably check back next time I'm there.
Do you decorate for Fall??
I grew up with my mom decorating our whole house for most holidays so I do the same for my family. I love changing out the decorations every month or so and now that Olive is three is she's pretty good at helping me decorate. We put non-breakable things down at her level and the fragile decor up higher. She's always rearranging the things she can touch and saying "I decoratin, Mama!" It's so sweet.
