How was everyone’s weekend? We got a few things done around the house, which were much needed, and did a bit of prepping for Little A’s birthday party in a few weeks! And I got a very overdue haircut. Don’t worry, it’s nothing revolutionary, much to the chagrin of my girlfriend who cuts my hair. I only took a few inches off to clean it up. Maybe next time I’ll do something drastic. #yeahright
A few weeks ago it was really feeling like fall around here, so I decided it was time to grab a pumpkin spice latte, break out my marshmallow pumpkin Scentsy bar, and add a little bit of fall to our home. I just love fall weather, and get so excited when the leaves start falling and the mornings are crisp. Sunglasses on, cup of coffee in my hand and a scarf around my neck. Oh and boots on of course. Ahhh. That sounds like perfection to me.
For our fall decor this year I wanted to go with simple, natural elements and a neutral palate. I wanted our house to feel cozy and inviting. I wanted it to feel like home. And I didn’t want to spend a lot of money.
I was able to reuse much of the decor I had last year. Because let’s be honest here folks….I don’t have the time, nor the money, to go decking my home out in new seasonal decor every year. So I try to re-purpose as much as possible.
A bowl of fruit, pine cones and berries adds just a touch of fall to our formal living room.
To make it feel cozy, I added some layers with warm blankets. Nothing like wrapping up in a blanket by the fire, sipping hot cocoa on a chilly fall evening.
I also wanted to keep our dining room table simple for every day use.
The pears and tray are both from Hobby Lobby. The pears look so real!
My daughter plays in the family room, so I wanted to keep things very very simple. I love my new green pumpkin! Also from Hobby Lobby.
The faux wheat I wrapped with rubber bands to keep it together then just stuck them in some flower jars. Standing back you can’t even tell thee stalks are wrapped in rubber bands. (And btw…how did I not even notice that rogue piece jutting out to the left? #bloggerfail)
And my favorite ceramic pumpkin I got at Hobby Lobby last year.
And that’s our fall decor. Nothing fancy just simple elements to add a bit of a fall touch. Once our porch is finished I’ll share that with you as well.
Here are a few ways to incorporate cozy, neutral fall accents to your home.
Target’s Threshold white and gold fall home decor collection is fabulous this year. Some great items you can use year after year. Click HERE to see the collection.
Have a great Monday friends!
Gorgeous lady! Wrapping up in a cozy blanket is one of my favorite favorite things (year round!). I loveeee your green pumpkin.
I bought a few tiny pumpkins yesterday to throw around. We don’t have tons of space to do seasonal decor, so the tiny pumpkins will have to do.
Very cute!!! Same as Caroline – come decorate my place! Well, after I have somewhere to live :-p Seriously though, it’s very elegant. And I’m still wearing tank tops, shorts and flip flops here 🙂 Can’t wait to get into storage and get my boots!
Wow, absolutely gorgeous!
I’ve been wanting to add some wheat to our fall decor… seeing this makes me want to do so NOW! I love the rogue piece by the way… not a #bloggerfail but rather a #realblogger.
You’ve done a wonderful job. I put a couple of pumpkins on the piano and called it a day. LOL
Happy Monday my friend.
Love your fall decor! Now come decorate my place 🙂
Loooove! Dang, you made me so jealous and bitter though reading about how you get to curl with with blankets next to a fire…NO FAIR!!! I really love the decor palate you went with, I love the natural and simple feel to it, definitely feels cozy and welcoming. And I didn’t even notice the wheat thing until you mentioned it and then I had to scroll back up and see what you were talking about lol. And yes, crisp mornings with hot coffee, scarves and boots is perfection to me too!!
I love your fall decor! You did a wonderful job!

Thanks Della! I love the simplicity of it.
Fall is one of my favorite times of year around here! And one of my favorite things I love so much about it is definitely the colors and the fun decor. This looks wonderful!
