Simple Ways To Fall-ify Your Home

Happy Friday, Friends! Today, I would like to share some simple ways to fall-ify your home!
I have found over the years that layering and grouping items is really the way to add warmth to your vignettes. Now, y'all know I'm no minimalist, (I wish I was) BUT even the stores layer their vignettes. The picture above was taken at Pottery Barn. I love how they grouped all the items together.
Adding wreaths is a great way to celebrate the changing of each season. 
Same thing applies to pillows, simply change them out with the seasons. You certainly don't want your summer pillows out during fall, or your fall pillows out during Christmas.  ;)
Add a simple Autumn centerpiece to your table and set some real or faux pumpkins beside it.
If you have any baskets or trays laying around the house, simply add some pumpkins and leaves to it for a pretty vignette on any table.
I thought this was a cute idea: Add M&M's to any glass vase and add fall flowers to it. I saw this at my grocery store. I always snap photos when I see things I like and use them for inspiration later on. Do any of you do that when you're out and about?
Fall platters are a great way to jazz up your kitchen during Fall.
Owls are the latest trend for Fall. WOOT, WOOT!! You can find block letters at various stores that spell out things like: Fall, Autumn, Blessings, Thankful...perfect for Fall!
Add pumpkins and gourds to your porch display. I like to toss them into baskets at different heights. :)
If you have metal wall art, a great way to add warmth is by adding a wreath.
During fall, I like to add dried green split peas to my glass containers. It's a simple way to add a pop of color in the kitchen.
I added a pumpkin and some fall leaves and berries. I like to call this....Fall In A Jar! ;)
You've all seen those light-up pumpkins around town. I like to vary my pumpkins at different heights.
Here is another display I did in the kitchen using different kinds of beans you can get at the grocery store. I sat my glass canisters in a basket and added leaves, pumpkins, and gourds around it. In the canisters, I added a pumpkin to each one.
In the family room, I added this wreath to my metal and wood wall art.
You can buy the artificial fall flowers at any craft store and a cute way to add a little pizzazz to them is by tying them altogether with a ribbon, and then you can set it beside something.
In my family room, I have added some big fall plates to the shelves on my entertainment center.
Lastly, I could't help but share this picture. This is our dog, Bentley, taken last Fall when we got him. He was completely "obsessed" with leaves, every time he went exploring, we would find him with a leaf in his mouth.  Isn't he sweet? He is one now, and completely obnoxious, but we love him anyway! ;)
Thanks for taking the time to visit, and have a wonderful weekend! XOXO, ~Liz

A Peek Around The Autumn Filled House

Hi there, friends! Would you like to take a quick tour around the house? Ok, follow me! 
Don't you just love Autumn colors? Fall colors feel so warm and cozy and that's how I was trying to make our house feel like this season.
My Autumn tree is up, and is OWL themed this year! Can I get a WOOT-WOOT? ;) I sat the tree in a basket and plan to fill the basket with real pumpkins and gourds.
 Above is the informal dining room decorated for Fall.
 Last week, I shared my chandelier decked for fall, here it is again!
Below is the front sitting room.
 On the coffee table, I added some real baby pumpkins and corn to my everyday greenery.
Here is the kitchen decorated for Fall.
 Cozy. Casual. Comfortable.
Here is the foyer area.
This display is in the entry.
 So is this....
Below is my chalkboard door I created with Happy Fall Y'all written on it.
This is our dining room.
Isn't Mr. Owl cute sitting perched atop the fall leaves.

New Chandelier Decorated For Fall

Hello Friends! Today, I would like to share my new chandelier decorated for Fall.
If you like this look, you can create everything you see here by going to Michael's. So, let me get to the supplies needed....
I purchased 5 glittery floral picks in the Halloween section.
 5 Sunflower Picks from the Fall section.
 One roll of wired jute ribbon, in the ribbon section.
Two fall garlands, fall section.
Lastly, I purchased one 9ft. Christmas garland. (Christmas aisle)
Here is my new Tuscan style chandelier.
So this is how you assemble and layer the following items.
Step #1: Drape the Christmas garland around each branch of the chandelier, tie it on using the branches....they act like twist ties. When that is done, you can now use the christmas garland to tie in and secure your fall garlands into place.
All that's left to do is stick your fall picks in where you want them and then swag the Jute ribbon in, using the christmas garland branches to secure it into place.
Super easy, very inexpensive, and makes and huge impact when you enter the room!
Cozy, warm, and festive for fall.
 I have so much to show you, but I've been so busy it's been difficult to sit down and do a post. Below is a sneak peek of my kitchen decorated for Fall.
 I can't wait to share my Baker's Rack decorated for Fall, it's so cute!
Well that's it for today! Thanks for stopping by! XOXO, ~Liz
