Next Monday is the official first day of Fall! So many of you are already enjoying that beautiful weather, but it is still in the 90’s here. I struggle to transition to Fall when it’s so hot out. But, for those of you who are more motivated than I, here are some decor ideas to get you ready for Fall and take you all the way through Thanksgiving.

Last Year’s Fall Home Tour

The simple fall home tour I did last year just reminded me that transitioning your home to Fall doesn’t have to be as daunting as it seems. You don’t have to have designated “fall decorations” or go shopping to bring in that feeling. Check it out for easy ideas you can recreate.

Fall Porch Ideas

Last year I shared three different Fall porch ideas. From mum lovers, pumpkin fans, and seasonal minimalists, I’ve got you covered. I forgot just how much I loved last years’ porch until I saw this photo again! I am determined to make my mums last this year.

Another Fall Home Tour

This Fall home tour will satisfy your need for pumpkins if it’s too hot in your neck of the woods to display them outside. To get the most out of pumpkins I like to give them a bath with light dish soap and water, dry them off well, and then use them for decor indoors. Once it cools down right before Halloween I move some out to my front porch where they can last until Thanksgiving.

Early Fall Tablescape

I recently posted my Casual Early Fall Tablescape, but incase you missed it I wanted to be sure to include it. This is a great way to bring that Fall feeling to your table without it feeling too Thanksgivingy. Yep, making new words here. I’ve included tips on how to get more use out of table linens and dinnerware you already have.

Simple Halloween Decorations

      I’ve always wanted to have one of those beautiful New England Halloween nights where there are tons of leaves blowing around and every house is decorated with real jack o’lanterns. I’d be even more into it then!
