It's is finally FEELING like fall around here.....and we are headed off to the beach! Ha!
Fall is our absolute FAVORITE time of year to go, and gosh it's been over a year since my toes have hit the sand and it's just what my soul needs!
Here are some of my FAVORITE tips for decorating for fall (and these can apply to many seasons!)
1) Use what you have- take what you normally use in your kitchen and put it in your living room, switch up from room to room and just add in some fall like texture or a few real pumpkins to your existin decor
2) Search your yard, a park or the woods for texture! Sticks, wheat stalks, acorns, leaves, anything that you can add to a tray or a dough bowl or even just stick between your piles of pumpkins!
3) Splurge on a focal point if you can, a sign, some large fake pumpkins- you probably know by now Homegoods is my current favorite! I didn't spend a dime on fall decor for several years, and only this year added to my decor with several new Homegoods pumpkins (Look back here to see the pic they featured on Instagram!)
4) Paint up some of your current decor if you've switched out the colors you like to use, OR find some cheaper, ugly pumpkins to paint. I've sound some great mini ones at Michael's craft store, and some larger foam ones at places like Dollar Tree or Walmart. Ugly orange can be cute with some paint!
5) Shop your grocery stores, local farmer's market, or local pumpkin patch. I've found some great decor at our local farm's pumpkin patch, I always buy my wheat at our Publix grocery store, and I've found the best pumpkins at our church's annual pumpkin patch!
6) Fill your house with the scents of fall! My favorite hack for when I need the house to smell good quickly is a pot of water on the stove with a bottle of some cheap imitation vanilla and cinnamon sprinkled in! My favorite is using fall scented essential oils but when you need something quick, set some watered down vanilla with spices on to boil then simmer, to get a fall mood fast without any decor!
I hope you love these ideas, and I’d love to hear some of yours!
