It’s definitely feeling like fall around here. The air has been nice and crisp in the mornings with a layer of fog over the grass and the days are getting noticeably shorter. It’s staying darker later in the morning and getting darker earlier in the evening. The leaves are slowly starting to change color and soon the herd will start eating in the barn. Jace has been busy keeping them out by feeding in the pasture so he can get concrete work done and the barn ready for them to come back to feed inside through the fall and winter. Aside from everything else that indicates the change in the season, everything Pumpkin Spice is back and the fall decor has got me feelin’ all warm and fuzzy inside. Haha! This weekend I met my sweet friend Veronica and her new baby girl and we took a trip to a vintage fall sale in Creswell. It was DARLING and full of vintage decor. Can you see now that my warm and fuzzy level is almost off the charts?! I wanted to buy up everything and add to my fall decor collection for inside the house. Of course, I refrained though! Instead I settled for a new living room candle I was in need of. I chose a hand crafted, by a local artisan, soy candle in Autumn Pear scent. It smells divine people! Love it!! (Ps… my inside fall decor is not happening this year as we are reconstructing our fireplace wall right now. It’s basically a construction zone in my living room– aahhh!)
Today Jace and I took a trip to (of course) our favorite store, Wilco! I decided I wanted to decorate our front door step to add to the fall season at our house. We picked out some beautiful large mums, some sweet pumpkins and a handful of small gourds. I’m not normally into the corn stalk and Halloween decor (I know, I’m boring, hehe!) so I didn’t go that route. Of course, I needed my mums to match and I wanted them to feel really fall-ish so I chose yellow and orange ones. Ya’ll, (I’ve caught myself saying that twice now, must be the season!) I’m not kidding when I say they are huge! Super nice, full and fresh. Definitely some of the nicer mums I’ve seen around town.
The only thing missing I’m realizing as I type this is a cute wreath for the front door. Maybe I’ll get creative and make one. I’ll update if I do! Also thinking that putting the mums in tin cans or small wooden barrels could be really cute and dress it up a little too! It would be Joanna Gaines approved for sure!
Anyhow friends, I hope you get some inspiration if you need it on some fall decor from this post. The few minutes of decorating already has me pumped for the holidays– my favorite time of year! Here are other pages to check out if you need some new fall decor ideas, or check out what I did. Super simple and super easy and hopefully a little warm and inviting for this season.
Good luck and don’t forget to share your fall decor pics!
