This year I had a BUSY Fall! Besides the normal busyness of life we were blessed to take a vacation to Hawaii sans kiddos to celebrate our anniversary. This was super awesome but it took a lot of time and planning and preparation to leave my kiddos with their grandparents and tie up loose ends with my work and blah, blah, blah... totally not complaining!!
Since I was going to be so busy I wanted to decorate my house for Fall with decor that would take me from September all the way to Thanksgiving. I knew I just wouldn't have time to switch it up for Halloween and then Turkey Day shortly after so I needed to do something that would last. Halloween got pretty much looked over this year but oh well, we weren't here the last 2 weeks of October anyway!
So, how do you pull off decor that lasts all Fall?
Pumpkins, of course.
And colorful leaves... with pumpkins... real and fake.
And my favorite Fall drink, a Salted Caramel Mocha from Starbucks. (You thought I was going to say Pumpkin Spice Latte, didn't you??) The Fall cups from the SB were so super cute this year I put it in my picture! (Okay, I guess that's not really decorating advice but whatever, it's a cute cup and delish drink)
Add your chalkboard to a Farmhouse-ish gallery wall.
I added in a Jack-O-Lantern face to my mantle with a reclaimed wood frame made by Mr. Chic just for fun! (another stolen piece from Mr. Chic!!) This can kind of pass as Halloween decor but it will work all Fall too so it's a sneaky way to add in some Halloweenie stuff. I'm so tricky like that.
Colors: Orange, aqua and a little bit of black, white, gray and a good mix of patterns. Can't go wrong with these classics.
Oh wait... more pumpkins!!! These are reclaimed wood pumpkins made by the hubs again and stolen by me again, Shhh, don't tell!! They dress up my fireplace hearth nicely.
