Fall is in full affect here in the Midwest. We have gone from shorts to hats and mittens in 2 days flat. This is one of my favorite seasons, the colors, smells and the crisp air. The apples, pumpkins, campfires and hot cider. I love walking the trails and the crunch of the leaves beneath my feet as my children hand me piles of the leaves they have found.
I like to add a little of the season to my home decor as well. It is nothing extravagant or complicated, just a pumpkin here and there. This year I committed to shopping my home for Fall decor verse buying something new. Last year I purchased a container of small pumpkins and used them as a centerpiece on the dining room table, this year I scattered them throughout the house.
Decorating the front porch is probably my favorite and I love driving up to the house seeing it in season. I think it gives the false impression that perhaps we might have it together, when in reality the inside of the house looks like a tornado went through it most days! Fake it until you make it! It took me a little longer to get around to it this year, in part because my summer flowers finally made it and I didn’t have the heart to uproot. Frost took care of that. I was able to keep some of the ivy to use in the display.
