Finally Fall – Home Decor Ideas

Oct11

For years, our home was the place to be during the fall. With lots of land and a huge bon fire pit, hay rides, bon fires and s’mores welcomed our fall guests with all that autumn has to offer.

With little children at the time, each year they’d direct me to the kind of fall decor they wanted. That meant lots of kid choice, like stuffed pumpkins with faces on them, funny looking scarecrows and a hodge podge of other items, you know, the majority of the things you now see at yard sales for a quarter.

As my tastes have grown up, slowly my decorating style has as well, but since it can be an investment to switch over ones entire decor at once, I’m slowly incorporating new items which I will use the most.

I love the process of mixing what I already have, shopping for new things, and thrifting for others. My fall decor is a perfect example of that and I had such fun picking out a few gems.

Many of you know my affinity for dishes. How can little plates and cups and platters make me so happy? I am not sure, but they do. As I enjoyed and wandered through Pier 1, (it’s definitely one of my happy places that I frequent) those dishes continued to call my name, but I decided to shop the house, use what I had out of my many plates and dress up my table settings with these gorgeous napkins.

Since I found them on clearance and they didn’t have eight of just the green, I decided to mix and match the green and yellow with a little layering. Aren’t they gorgeous? And those napkin rings? I am not just using them for napkins, that’s for sure. It’s amazing to me how linens can dress up even the most simple table setting.

When I start creating a tablescape. I begin by pulling out what I have and start playing. I begin simple and then add to it as the mood strikes. Some suggestions I stick to are highlighted in my Creating a Tablescape post and layering of varying elements is a bit part of that.

Typically, I lean towards a beautiful napkin fold, such as this Pinwheel Napkin Fold.  It’s so simple but makes such a grand statement.  Since my new napkins aren’t made of a stiff fabric, I used those napkin rings, which make this otherwise rustic look quite glam. By adding the gold candle holders, it definitely makes that overall look Rustic Glam. As soon as the leaves change in the next week, I’ll be cutting large branches for a large centerpiece and I can’t wait to create that.

Again, since I have to seat so many around my table and there weren’t enough matching napkins, this problem is easily solved by determining that the two head seats will anchor the table setting with a slightly different looks.

I love these yard sale cloches that cover the beautiful Pier 1 pumpkins. Again, so simple, but elegant.

If you have a predetermined mindset that everything needs to match, let it go. There’s such beauty in an eclectic look.

With such crazy, warm weather the last few weeks, our leaves are just beginning to turn, but in another week or two, this view will be breathtaking. I’d love to have you join me for some coffee out here to share a bit of life. It’s so much better than through a screen. :)

I’ve been wanting a dough bowl for a year and when this one popped up at a yard sale for $1, I jumped at it. Now, the irony is that under all those beautiful filler pumpkins and fall foliage is one ugly painted bottom, but one would never know, unless I told you. :) Pier 1 had some great fall fillers which I snapped up. It so simple to create a gorgeous centerpiece on a budget just by adding in things from your yard, mixed with filler.

This is the first year with our new front porch and it will take me awhile to decorate it like I desire. Slowly but surely, it will get there. I appreciate it so much more when it takes a little bit of time.

I knew that my first priority was going to be our front door, so a large outdoor wreath was my first purchase. Like every good Southern veranda, it needed a big hay bale with some beautiful pumpkins and mum. I won’t even get on a tangent at what occurred while I was sleeping, but needless to say, our naughty dog had a field day. This is only a small remnant. GRRR!

My mantel is still a work in progress, as I need to swap out the white candles and middle picture. This year, I decided to layer a brown shutter jut to give it a bit of an autumn feel. The glass candle holders are favorites because they can be dressed up for any occasion.

If you are wanting to add a few more fall touches, don’t forget the power of Spray Paint. These were some scary, plastic $0.25 jack-o-lanterns that got new life with some Rustoleum Heirloom White Spray paint. Now, I LOVE them, don’t you?

That’s just a sneak peek of some of the fall fun I’ve been having around my house and thanks to Pier 1 for sending me some gift cards, I get to share a $50 Gift card with one of you!!! YAY!!

Honestly, have you been to Pier 1 recently? It just sparks my creativity the longer I am there. Since there’s a store near where my kids take co-op classes, I’ve been popping in more frequently just because as soon as I enter, it relaxes me and gives me such a vision for my home.

Yes, I love everything in that store and now you have a chance to love it a bit more.

  288. I think that fragrance is also a large part of decorating. I love Pier 1’s reed diffusers – with ember being my favorite fall fragrance.

    As a side note I saw the most beautiful scarf slidders at a store awhile back. While I was admiring them the store clerk told me that they were napkin rings. Another use for your pretty napkin rings.

  313. Pier One has so many cute Fall things! I would probably get something that I could use on my mantle or table to bring some Fall cuteness to my home! Thanks!

  314. Jennifer Honeycutt says:

    I would buy the pretty fall wreath I saw there the other day.

  315. I would definitely buy Christmas décor! I love all of the sparkly Christmas stuff Pier 1 carries!

  316. I am not sure just which item I would “purchase’ as this is just one of those kind of stores that just shopping in it is a great way to enjoy life! all that imagining.. planning. hoping and wishing.. a great day in deed. of course if i were able to actually have an item from the store. that is and of itself is a joy! I follow you on Facebook ! Have an awesome day!
    Blue!

  317. I would put it toward a pretty chair for my family room!

  318. I like you on Facebook!

  319. Something for our bedroom. We’ve been our house for a year and I still have nothing on the walls.

  320. Cynthia Bryant says:

    I would buy a random assortment of fall decor and my house is seriously lacking in decor for my favorite season of the year.

  321. Mary Murray says:

    I would buy a new fall wreath for the front door!

  322. I would look for a new Fall doormat or some floral accents to add to bowls and vases around the house.

  323. I also subscribe to your e-mails. :)

  324. I lost my job in March and am still recovering from two back surgeries earlier this year. Asian Spice candles are my weakness. With no income though I have been unable to indulge. I think I need some of those to assist in my recovery. Aromatherapy might be the thing to knock me out of this depressing mood. Win or lose, Asian Spice it is!

  325. I would love some new pillows!

  326. Subscribed, commented, and followed. :) I’d buy something for my fireplace mantle. I am usually to cheap to change out décor for the seasons so I would splurge on seasonal mantle décor.

  327. I’d buy some Christmas ornaments. Pier 1 always has such a nice selection and I like to give them to friends.

  328. I would get some Fall Candles for sure! And then some dinner plates.

    I LIKE you on Facebook!
