Fall Home Tour
October 8, 2014 By 30 Comments
I'm excited to be a part of Cherished Bliss's Fall Home Tour! I just love looking at all these beautiful fall decorated homes and feeling so cozy. I just wanted to snuggle under a blanket with a cup of hot apple cider! If you just came from The Golden Sycamore, welcome! It's finally late enough in the season to stop saying 'I know it's early, but I've decorated my house for the fall." And even though my house has been decorated for over a month, I am going to share it with you now! As a member of the Better Homes and Gardens bloggers, I was challenged to make my home holiday ready. The holidays can be kind of tricky to decorate for--with fall, then Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas...all about a month apart. You can clearly see that I've already moved into the Halloween part of fall, so I have lots of Halloween decor thrown in there too. I think the best way to get Holiday Ready is to set up a neutral base for decor in your house, remove or put away lots of your daily decor, and slowly add in little elements. The best part of decorating for fall is that these Halloween decorations are so easy to add in and take out once Halloween is over, and the fall decor stays the entire season until Christmas time. I also love including many natural elements which you don't even really need to ever switch out--they match everything! My 'mantel' is a bunch of things I've collected over the years. I made the table here. I got the haunted house at Hallmark a long time ago. I got the spooky tree at Walmart and made the ornaments. My favorite new addition is this gorgeous wood lantern. It's so beautiful and I filled it with pine cones and little white pumpkins. And the best part? It's from Walmart and only cost about $15. I made the chalkboard awhile ago from a thrifted frame. And I made the glittered candles--they are so easy and add a modern pop! I also love this adorable owl luminary (also from Walmart.) I picked a Better Homes and Gardens candle in a lovely fall scent to add the perfect aroma of fall to my home. I made the rustic wood block pumpkins also. More Halloween decorations! My mother-in-law gave me a few of these items and a few I've had for a really long time. I made the tin can luminary last year. I really love the soft colors of fall, accented by orange and black. The black grounds the room and the other colors add softness. The different textures add dimension, like from the fur pillow, rustic basket, and leather pillow. Finally, there's some little fall accents I added to the top of the bookcase. I have so many decorations now that I just cluster them all together and somehow they just work! (How cute is that fox!) I feel like my house is definitely holiday ready now. I have all my decorations displayed, but easy to switch out once Halloween is over.
