In a couple of days it will be the first official day of Fall! Sad that summer is over; however, ready for cooler temperatures and pumpkin spice lattes.
There are so many easy ways you can add touches of fall to your decor without breaking your bank account. I didn’t want to go overboard this year so I invested only a small amount. I love to decorate this time every year and will last me until the end of Thanksgiving, since I don’t do Halloween. This only means that Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner.
1. Decorate Dining Room Table. I love the color white so I purchased a cream lace runner for the middle of my dining room. In addition, I purchased a burlap pumpkin from Target for $6.00. The small boxwood wreath is also from Target. I purchased the cake stand and magnolia wreath from Magnolia Market earlier this year. For me, less is more.
2. Wreath – I love wreaths as you can see so many found in my home. Nothing is more welcoming than a nice, fall wreath on your front door. I actually found this pinecone wreath in a thrift store for less than $5.00. The burlap bow was purchased at JoAnn Fabrics. I added the the greenery and pinecone to finish the look.
3. Fall foods – Stock up on the fabulous five favorite Fall foods! The perfect time to stock up and many items tend to come on sale during these months.
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sweet Potatoes
4. Candles – Nothings says cozy like a warm candle burning in your home. I light up my different fall favorites and also turn on my scentsy warmers. I also like to diffuse essential oils in my diffuser. My favorite is named “Holiday Joy” from doTerra. In addition, I will be trying a new recipe for my candle burner that includes coconut oil and pumpkin spice!
7. Decorate your mantel – A beautiful decorated fireplace mantel sets the tone for your favorite place to gather, the living room. I tend to keep with the neutral tones and prefer not to make dramatic changes. I keep my mirror, boxwood wreath and boxwood trees on my mantel year round. I added a few fall touches with my “thankful marquee”, burlap pumpkin and fall colored daisies.
Let’s celebrate Fall!
