Hey friends! I’m sure a lot of you have Christmas on the brain right now. I know I sure do! For those of you who like to keep your home decorated for Fall, I thought I would share my Fall decor. If you like to move from Halloween decor to Thanksgiving/Fall decor, I thought I would show you how I make the transition quickly and easily.
Full disclosure, I have actually started decorating for Christmas. I not only decorate my house, but I also have decorated a friends house with some of my girlfriends for the past 15 years. This year we have a little challenge, and her house will be in the tour of homes this year. Exciting, because I love a good challenge.
On to the Fall decor! Before I decorate for Halloween, I decorate for Fall, around September 1. I place my Fall decor so I can add Halloween later, and take it away and leave Fall. You will be able to see the differences in each space if you refer to my Halloween blog post.
I left all of my pumpkins and Fall greenery in the entryway along with the candy corn lights. I love the glow of the lights at night. After all of the Halloween decor, I was honestly ready to thin my decor out a little. I bring my Halloween bins into the house and quickly pluck the Halloween decor out. I make sure the whole process takes less than an hour.
Across from our entry is this old door. My sister gave this to me for my birthday one year and it’s one of my favorite decor pieces. I love decorating it for the seasons. I also added an old ceiling tin behind the spot where the window was. In addition, I added some vintage looking keys to the doorknob for a fun touch.
I didn’t post our guest bedroom in the Halloween post, because I only had Fall in this room. Jax and Mellie insisted on being in my photo. Sweet babies. I have touches of yellow in this room, so I was excited to find a yellow pumpkin to add to the decor. I want my guests to feel special while they are here, so I love adding seasonal touches to welcome all of my guests.
This area stayed pretty similar after Halloween was removed. I left the black pumpkin since I have black accents throughout my home.
My dining room had quite a bit of Halloween decor, so it was the biggest transformation. I changed my centerpiece to this vintage drawer filled with a Fall arrangement. I keep my centerpiece small and simple to remove easily when we use our table. Our Empty Nest home only has one dining room, so it does get used. I also try to change out the greenery for the seasons on my chandelier to jazz it up too.
My hoosier cabinet decorated for Fall including some of my Rae Dunn collection. Yes, the door on the bottom always looks open. It’s a really old piece, and that’s part of it’s character. The pumpkin art on the top shelf is by Roxanne Spradlin. I love all of her artwork. I have several pieces for each season. I’ve purchased several pieces from Kirklands. The topiary on the top stays year round, I add seasonal foliage so that it matches my seasonal decor.
This area in my living room has a touch of vintage with my corbels, and a big splash of Fall color with the arrangement. I keep all of my arrangements pretty basic, then add color for each season.
I kept the lights for a warm glow on the mantel. I also have the battery candles in the fireplace for a warm glow. Another thing I do with the fireplace is add a mirror to the back to cover the burn marks from fires, and to add to the candle glow. When things get cold, I just store it all away so we can use the fireplace again.
Another piece of Roxanne Spradlin art sits on my mantel.
This spot in my kitchen is where I display more of my Rae Dunn. I don’t have room in my dining room for a china cabinet, so I have found creative ways to display my favorite pieces. I found this shelf at Hobby Lobby, and it fits in this nook like a glove. Did you spot more Roxanne Spradlin art on top of the shelf?
My little hutch also has touches of Fall. I’m limited on counter space, so I try to get creative and keep my decor above the cabinets and on the walls.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour of my home decorated for Fall. Christmas is around the corner and I’ve already started crafting and getting things ready for Christmas decor. I can’t wait to share it with you!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
