Although it is still literally in the 90’s here weather-wise, I am so ready for fall and all the beautiful fall decor. Fall just says crisp, cool days, home-baked goodies, and family togetherness to me. It’s sweaters and boots and wreaths and pumpkins. It’s the season we prepare for Thanksgiving, a time to be thankful for all of our blessings and focus on what’s important to us. Including decor:) This year, we have a new home to adorn with fall attire. I’d love to come home to a porch like this:

What is so beautiful and inviting about this space and can I make it happen at my home please (for less)?
Wreath: The full multi-colored leaf wreath is definitely the focal point of the porch. It looks like it could be crafted in an afternoon while a little baby sleeps. We have a double door though, so maybe I’ll make two smaller wreaths??
Lanterns: The lanterns (two hanging and two floor) are also great. We don’t have any lanterns on our house, but I’ve seen floor lanterns at Home Goods for a decent price. Fill them up with tall candles and some walnuts and you’re set.
Hay: Bushels of hay are pretty rustic and add height to the decorative accents. Not sure where I could find hay??
Pumpkins: What is fall without pumpkins? A variety of textures and colors that blend nicely are scattered artfully about. I can definitely scatter.
Branches and Leaves: A few more accessories layer the porch. Sticks- easy to find in the yard and I have some leaves from Hobby Lobby.
Welcome Mat: The PB mat is nice because it’s says ‘Welcome’ in big, bold letters. We have a welcome mat, so that’s done:)
The only thing left to do is decide when to break out the fall decor. I’m thinking mid-September or perhaps after Labor Day if I’m feeling ambitious.
What are your plans for fall decor? When do you start decorating? Did you already start? ha!
