This “Hello Fall Home Tour” is a great example of simple decor that makes a big impact.
Happy Fall friends! Did you know that today is the first day of Fall?! I’m so happy to be here today, hosting the “Hello Fall Home Tours”! It’s a blog hop featuring nine bloggers, all with gorgeous homes decorated for Fall. I’ll start with our “Fall-ified” front porch. Our kitty wouldn’t stop photo bombing… so eventually I just went with it. She’s sort of like a Halloween “black cat” anyways!
**This post contains affiliate links** My Fall decor strategy is what I like to call “one bin decorating”. Basically… I have ONE bin of Fall Decor. Every year I re-evaluate when I’m packing things up and I only keep one bin of decor. By having only one bin, it makes pulling it out and decorating fun, rather than stressful. Along with the one bin, I also always get a pumpkin for each member of our family. This “home sweet home” is my favorite and that sticks around for every season! This wreath is a new addition to this year’s Fall decor. I really love the way the leaf colors pop against the green barn door.
I’m still swooning over how beautiful our kitchen looks with the new countertops and backsplash. Decorating for Fall in the kitchen just involves lots of Fall foods! A plate full of apples means more apples are being consumed daily than ever! A plate full of our favorite pumpkin muffins means we’re all eating just as many muffins as apples!
If you follow me on Instagram you might know the table saga, so I’ll try and keep it short here. I wanted a round table. I ordered this one online and sold our old table. First the base arrived without a top. Then after many phone calls and frustration a very damaged top arrived. Target offered to re-ship the whole table. We waited over a month (table-less), then ANOTHER base arrived without a top. I finally refused the second base and got a refund. Now I need to find a new round table. In the mean time our folding table is a stand-in.
With some careful photography, you almost can’t tell it’s a plastic folding table! I found this roll of buffalo check wrapping paper for $3 at Michaels and just rolled it down the table! Then I added a vase full of cut hydrangeas from our garden. I also updated the oversized photos on the wall with these free Fall printables.
The other basket is full of fake pumpkins and gourds which also came from Michaels. Here is the view looking into the dining room. I just swapped out the faux succulets in my hanging planters for some Fall foliage instead.
Fall is also when I pull out extra throw blankets and cozy pillow covers. I also swapped my wax warmers for nice fall scents. Anything to create the Hygge right?!
The other recent new purchase is the wreath around the bull’s neck! I really love the pop of green and I could see this wreath roating around the house all year long. Good thing too because it wouldn’t fit into my Fall bin! Our living room is where we do EVERYTHING. From me working during the day, to homeschooling, to Netflix marathons at night. I love creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere in here. The “Give Thanks” banner was from Target a few years ago. I like having it hung there as a constant reminder! The rest of the living room got a few fall decorations mixed into the built in cabinets. I also swapped out the taper candles for black ones for Halloween! I hope this post inspired you that beautiful seasonal decor doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Most years I’ll add a piece or two and usually I’ll donate a few things from past years. This year I chose not to use any of my leaf garlands. I just kept them packed away in the bin. If I don’t use them next year I’ll be sure to donate them to make space for new things!
