Fall Home Tour

Well, I had initially hoped to get our regular home tour up on the blog before the time came to show fall and Christmas home tours, but I just wasn’t able to get everything together in time.  It takes a lot of work to get each room clean and photographed, and frankly, right now #AintNobodyGotTimeFoDat  

I don’t really get too crazy with the fall decorations like I do with Christmas decorations, so you won’t actually be taking a full tour of our house anyway… just a few snapshots of our entry, living room, and kitchen.  So until I can get the regular home tour up, please enjoy these snapshots of our fall décor… 






Come on in!



I know a lot of people are doing neutrals – creams and beiges – for their fall décor this year, but fall would not be fall to me without the beautiful, bright colors of fall leaves – reds, yellows, oranges, and deep browns – oh my!



I love pumpkins!  As you can see I have a whole collection of them in all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures.








This year I added a banner with pictures of all of our old Halloween costumes over the years.  I absolutely love this touch!  Such a fun way to reminisce. 








I also added a crate next to the fire place to house all of our seasonal books... right now it’s filled with all of our fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving books, and then I’ll change it out for Christmas, Easter, etc.  That way, the kids have all of the season appropriate books right at their fingertips all the time, and we don’t have to hunt for them.  We love to read!











The last stop is the kitchen.  A few festive place mats and some fall flowers for the table, and more pumpkins along with a festive basket and my Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin candle for the kitchen island.  The basket, currently holding fruits and veggies, will soon be replaced with Halloween candy for me the trick-or-treaters. 






I hope you guys enjoyed my fall tour!  I can’t wait to show you what I have in store for Christmas!

    1. Our kiddos love to read, and I got tired of digging through hundreds of books to find the seasonal ones, so I figured that this was the perfect solution!
