Fall is no doubt my favorite season of all. I love the transition of go-go summers to a more home oriented fall. It starts to get cold and you get the first snuggles of the many cold months to come. The cooler temperatures are still exciting, and refreshing from the extreme heat of the months before.
I started our fall decor with our porch. I was early, but I feel like if people can decorate for Christmas 150 days before it, in fairness, I should be able to bring fall out a little early too.
I happened upon this bench at Target. It started in our mud room, but, with it being an actual outdoor bench I lended it to the porch for a while. It’s the perfect spot to sip some sweet tea or PSL. This little blue pumpkin I painted and added small paper doilies using Modge Podge. I went back with thumb tacks to give it a studded look.
I, like every other basic southerner, love a Magnolia wreath. The leaves are beautiful, and they dry even more beautifully. I gathered some leaves, a dollar store wreath wire form, and dug my hot glue gun out and proceeded to go to town arranging the leaves around the form. It turned out great and cost me only $1 since I already had the ribbon and the leaves were literally from outside off a tree.
The cotton garland is from Hobby Lobby and hung using command hooks as to not damage the house. The lanterns I picked up at Tuesday Morning.
This cabinet is from Target and is super glam inside and outside!
The wreaths for the front doors I found at Home Goods. I had every intention of making wreaths but when I stumbled on these for less than $20 each I knew I would probably spend more to make them.
I love how grand a big wreath makes the doors look.
I don’t think I could love fall anymore. I didn’t use the traditional oranges and maroons you usually see in fall but I like how the blues and whites can represent a cooling down. Cool, jewel tones are my inspiration for fall this year. I’ll be sharing my Fall Home tour soon as well so keep an eye out.
