Fall House Tour

  Fall is here! The trees are changing colors and the weather is getting cooler. I am loving it! I always enjoy decorating for the seasons and Christmas is not that far off! I'm starting to get some ideas together now, but for now I am enjoying this beautiful fall season.   
I shared my fall mantle several weeks ago. You will definitely know it's fall when you walk in the door! 


 
I found the owl pillow at Pier 1 and love him! Did you spot the owl on the mantle? He blends in with the fall colors.
 
I am loving my new kitchen table and chairs I purchased this summer. It looks great with fall colors.
 

There is a another owl on the table!
 

 

 
I added gourds, pumpkins, wheat, moss balls, grapevine balls, and sunflowers to the metal basket. I found this idea on Pinterest last year.
 
 

I dressed up this cute scarecrow burlap wall hanging with fall ribbons.
 
 I decorated the frame with ribbon and added the leaves and fall phrase inside.



I love the shape of this birdcage and decided to add some gourds and grapevine balls inside.
 
This is my dining room table all decked out for fall.

 


 Hope you enjoyed this little tour! Enjoy the season!

Halloween Candy Arrangement And Vignette

I created a little Halloween vignette in my entryway yesterday. I made this arrangement out of candy, fresh green mums, and glittered pumpkins and spider webs. Everything came from Wal-Mart except for the glittered pumpkins and spider webs. I picked those up in Dallas. The owls are suckers with the sticks cut off. Everything is layered around a smaller vase that is in the middle of the large vase that holds the mums. This is very easy to make!
 
 
You will definitely know it's Halloween when you walk in the door!
 
 
 
 
 
 I decorated the green pumpkin with ribbons and a spider.
 

I'm ready for Halloween! Have a great week!

Fall On The Front Porch




I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the fall season! My favorite part is decorating! I love all of the beautiful fall colors. You will definitely know it's fall when you walk up to my front porch. There are scarecrows to greet you!
 


 
 

I planted orange and yellow zinnias in the spring so they will look good for the fall months. I'm thinking ahead! Ha!
 
Have a wonderful weekend! Happy fall!
