Fall Decorating ~ With Owls

Can I get a WOOT-WOOT? Owls are so fun to incorporate into your fall decor.
Some people may incorporate black birds, some may use Roosters, some may use Owls, I incorporate all three, ha! 
I found this little guy at Rite Aid, 50% off.
These Owls were from Rite Aid, too! Last years Owls.
Just add some fall leaves and set an Owl beside it and you have a cute vignette.
Set an Owl in a basket with some greenery and fall berries.
This owl I set on the hearth, he sits beside a fall berry swag and a lantern.
I bring this Owl out every year!
See my Fall Tree? Well, I made it an Owl themed tree and an Owl sits perched atop a bed of leaves.  
I made the owl my tree topper.
Owls can be seen in various parts of the tree.
This is my Autumn tree from last year, can you spot an owl?
What animals, if any, do you incorporate into your Autumn Decor?
Thanks for visiting, friends! xo, Liz

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

Let's talk Pumpkins

Hi there! Many of you will be pulling out your fall pumpkins (if you haven't already) in the next few weeks.  The anticipation of fall, cooler weather, and cozy homes are driving many of us to start early. I am one of them! ;)
Today, I'm going to share a few ideas on how to "jazz up" how your pumpkins are displayed.  
Place a few pumpkins and gourds on a pedestal and add some fall leaves and berries. Simple. Festive. Pretty.
Here I have mixed one pumpkin in amongst my fall owls and leaves display.
Add your everyday greenery in with your pumpkin display, it tends to soften the look.
Add pumpkins in with greenery, artichokes, corn, berries, and a sunflower, or two!
If you have a dining room that doesn't get used often, why not decorate the table for fall. Place a charger down, put a plate on top of the charger, and add a pumpkin for a cute fall table display.
Instead of placing candles on your candle holders, place pumpkins on top.
 When decorating your hutches, or shelves, add greenery and fall plates.
If you have baskets or decorative boxes, add some greenery and set pumpkins down on it.
If you have a cloche, add glittery faux pumpkins, it adds a beautiful pop of color in any room.
Take your big glass candle holders and drop in a bag of pumpkin potpourri and add a festive fall candle.
Add pumpkins around your candles.
Fill a basket with some moss and set pumpkins on top.
Use pumpkins next to your table centerpiece.
Scatter pumpkins along any shelf using different sizes and styles.
Real pumpkins are best, so add them to your tabletops, so festive! Thanks for visiting!
