Today is the final day of the Fall decor and entertaining blogger home tours!
Happy Friday – it’s Fall home tour day! I’m so happy to join over 20 of my blogger friends as we open up our homes to you and share our Fall decorations. You’ll get a chance to see how we’ve decorated pockets of our home for the Fall and give you some inspiration for your own! If you’re popping over from Kim’s blog, Kim Power Style, welcome! Isn’t her home so beautiful and her Fall decorations are fabulous!
Before you get started on the tour of my home, I want to say a huge thank you to Angelina over at Peonies and Orange Blossoms for getting us all together and organizing such a great tour! Y’all, you’re going to love all the homes on this tour. If you’ve missed any, I’ve got a list of them at the end of this post.
You always hear me talk about how much I love hot weather, but I also love the colors and decorations that come with Fall. Watching the leaves change colors is so beautiful! We’ve been in our home a year, but this is the first chance I’m really able to start decorating for the seasons and holidays and I’m so excited.
This year I decided to go with the traditional colors of Fall; orange, burgundy, and gold. I sprinkled these colors throughout my home, starting with the front porch. I had so many ideas of how I could decorate our porch, it was difficult to choose, but I decided to use our bench as the base and go from there!
When I saw this scarecrow, I knew he had to go home with me! And I can’t have a scarecrow without some bales of hay and pumpkins.
I went back and forth about if I wanted to go to the farm down the street from me and purchase a real bay of hay or just buy some at the local craft store. In the end, I decided it was going to be easier and less messy if I went to the craft store.
See…more bling! I love the different textures of these small pumpkins. They give the hay a pick me up.
I’m always one for a little bling and the Hello Fall sign hanging on the door is no different. The words have some bling!
Our 1st-floor powder room is narrow and compact so I kept the decorations simple to keep the room from feeling closed in. One of the great things about choosing these colors is that they pack a powerful punch! A little decoration goes a really long way.
And yes, I’m so into my fall decorating that even the toilet needs a little sprucing up!
Candles and beautiful candle holders can liven up even the smallest of spaces. One of the great things about this time of the year also is the Fall scents. I chose apple cinnamon candles and can I say the minute you walk into the bathroom, it immediately smells like Fall. I just love it!
Since I loved my scarecrow from outside so much, I chose to add one to my dining table decorations.
Walking into our home is so full of cheer and festivity with these bright colors and the kids in the neighborhood just love the decorations on the front porch!
The focal point of our home is the fireplace and sets the tone for the entire house. It’s one of the things that made me fall in love with it! Let me tell you when I saw it, I came up with about 100 decorating ideas when our Realtor brought us here.
It’s the area I enjoy decorating the most. The stone gives the living room so much character!
Yes…again with more bling! Aren’t these sparkly acorns just the cutest?!
I made the wood slice sign a couple of months ago just for the fireplace. One day when I was at Michael’s, there on a shelf when I walked into the store where the wooden E & L you see below. I had no idea where I was going to put them or even what color I would paint them, but I knew they were sitting there waiting on me and into the basket they went!
I finally decided on using burgundy, which is E’s favorite color, as the pop of color for this room. It’s going to look so wonderful with burgundy accents throughout. I’m excited!
I’ve had these glass vases for years and they were taking up space in the shed. I knew with so much color that I needed to break it up and painting these vases with white chalk paint was the perfect solution. They were originally blue, purple, and pink.
Thanks for stopping by, it was wonderful having you over! Next on the tour is Lynn from Living Large in a Small House.
