I've never really gotten into the whole decorating for fall. That is until this year. Lately I've been tackling the house and giving it a festive fall feeling.
My first part of getting ready for fall was making sure the house smelled just right. I'm not a big candle fan in the summer, but as soon as the cool weather rolls around there is nothing better than the smell of pumpkins and cinnamon. So my first step to getting ready for fall was lighting this...
As far as decorations, here are a couple pictures of what I've done so far...
Our dining room table all decorated for Halloween with fresh, fall flowers.
The fireplace decked out in scarecrows and pumpkins.
I also picked up the cutest deep red rug with embroidered leaves, some new fall placemats (to use after we put away our Halloween ones), and some cute bath towels for our guest bathroom. I'm still looking for a fun, fall wreath for the front door! I also have to tackle the outside with scarecrows, signs, and bat lights for Halloween. Not to mention we have to make our annual trip to the pumpkin patch to find just the right pumpkin, or two, or three, or five!
Even though there's lots more to do, it's definitely beginning to look a lot like fall around here.
Now if we could just get the cool weather I would be set to go. I am way over this yucky humid weather we've been having!
Do you decorate for fall? If so, what are some of your favorite decorations? I'd love to see some pictures. Matter of fact I dare...no double dare...you to take some pictures of your house decorated for fall and post it over at your place. I could use some more ideas!
