inspiration : fall decor {1}

Hi ya'll! I put up my fall decorations this week! I know, I know, Autumn doesn't officially begin until the 23rd. Maybe I'm just over-prepared. Perhaps over-anxious? Eh, whichever. Fall is definitely my favorite season. It's so cozy and filled with goodness. 

I didn't really think about how well my fall decorations would mesh in our new house and I have to say, I've got some hits and some misses. Some things just look odd, some look perfect. Which only means I need more fall decor. There are endless possibilities out there. Here are a few great ideas:

Baby pumpkins wrapped with ribbon and nestled in a bowl. Cute!

These are GORGEOUS!! I can't imagine the time and thought that went into each punpkin but it's gorgeous. I want to grow a pumpkin patch next year so I can have an abundance of pumpkins for decorating purposes next year. Perfectly logical right?

This is brilliant! I have a vase, I have small bowls. Now I just need baby pumpkins and acorns.

I think this is so beautiful and would be lovely as a centerpiece for Thanksgiving tables everywhere. Of course, there was never any room for decorations on our Thanksgiving tables... but maybe somewhere in the house we could fit this in. ;)

This would be perfect by our front door as my usual table of decorations just looks goofy and out of place. This is much cuter!


Dad-gummit! I need pumpkins and I need them NOW! ;)

Do you have your fall decor up yet?

  2. I usually wait until October to put out fall decorations but I was anxious this year. We went to Sam's Club over the weekend to get some huge pumpkins but they didn't have any yet. :( Maybe next weekend.

  4. LOVE these ideas! I tried to decorate for fall, but I think my wooden pumpkins have run away! BUT there is a big pile of real ones waiting under my washline for me- and so many gourds! :)~Lindsay

  5. I keep contemplating on if I want to make those gilded pumkins from the 2nd pic. I love fall but I do wish summer would have stuck around for a few more weeks (Chicago winters are tooooooo long!)
