I know, I know. I'm late to the "I love Fall" party and I've all but disappeared over the last few weeks. What can I say: I've been busy!
Now that it's nearly Halloween, I figured I'd better share my Fall decorations before it's time to bust out the Christmas boxes. Last year, I did very minimal decorating for Fall, since we moved into our house last August. Because we'd just unpacked all the normal decor and gotten that situated, I didn't want to take it all down and decorate for fall. So I was soooo excited to get out ALL of my fall stuff this year, some of which I haven't seen since fall of 2012!
ONE. Living Room
I took down most of my everyday decor and replaced with autumnal lovelies. Those little raffia pumpkins are some of my absolutely favorite decorations: my mom gave them to me years ago when I was in college, and she'd had them for years then! I made the bunting a few years ago, and I love how it looks on our mantle in this house.

TWO. Dining Room
We don't eat in our dining room much, which is one reason I can set the table like this and it won't get messed up very often!
THREE. Front Door
The front door is probably my favorite thing to decorate seasonally. I made the burlap wreath a few months ago and had planned to swap it for a fall wreath, but I thought it looked so cute with the fall stuff that it stayed. And what's fall without mums and pumpkins on the doorstep, amiright?

I keep things simple in the kitchen: a few candles, candy corn, fall dish towels, and a leaf-shaped candy dish (that I shouldn't fill, EVER, because I'll eat it all).

We don't really use the front door, so I had to do something at the back door to greet us with fall fanfare when we come home. I'll trade out the Halloween door hanger after the 31st for a grapevine wreath with fall leaves.

In addition to this stuff, we have a few more decorations scattered throughout the house (and enough pumpkin candles to make it smell like Thanksgiving). Happy fall, y'all.
