Fall House Tour

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

it has come, the start of my most favorite time of year. even though we have only had a tease of fall like weather here in Georgia, which makes decorating with pumpkins when it's in the 80's outside sort of difficult. I really don't like putting out my corn stalks in my tank top and flip flops, who knows what sort of bugs and spiders are going to be crawling all over you. but oh well... it's fall, no matter how hot it is outside!

I, along with a million other people, count down the days that Starbucks starts offering the PSL. Freshen up my scarves, break out the boots and make plans to visit the local pumpkin patches. Picking apples, baking pumpkin bread and dusting off all of our seasonal decor just puts me in the best mood!!

I thought I would share what our house looks like this fall... my oldest son isn't really into sweet Halloween, he has moved on to scary-bloody stuff {which I can't handle}. I'm not a big decorator for Halloween... I prefer to put up just fall so that I can keep it up longer than 32 days. I'm one of those that puts Halloween up on October 1st and it is down November 1st. So our home is full of a mixture of both halloween and fall. Hope you enjoy!

This is the first year I have actually used corn stalks. I've wanted to do something with them for forever... I found these at a local nursery, but I have seen them at Lowes, too.

I LOVE this gathering basket. It is lined with plastic so that I can put fresh flowers in it.

Now for the inside...

This is my favorite wreath. My dad and I picked this baby up from Scott's a couple of years ago. It usually hangs on our front door, but due to it being delicate, I decided to make it the focal point once you walk into our house.

Just a little something on the kitchen counter

The Pumpkin Pecan Waffles candle from Bath and Body Works is my favorite fall scent from them.

I decorate with mostly greys, creams, and black. You won't find a whole lot of  'color' around here. Maybe just a splash or 2. I have black paper bats cut out and strung on twine hanging from the antlers to the candelabra. I took picture frames that we weren't using and put book pages and drew a spider. There is a black boa in the stick candle holder... trying to make it look like crow feathers. I found this cute shaped dried gourd at a local shop, perfect for my splash of color.

our baby wouldn't leave the witch legs alone when they were hanging out of a dresser, so they were moved to the mantel.

That it what our house looks like this fall/halloween 🙂 Happy Fall!
