It's Autumn In August

Hi there! Yes, you read the title correct, it sure is Autumn in August over at...The Tuscan Home.
Every year, right before the kids go back to school, I get busy decorating for Fall. Join me, and I will share what I have completed around the house.
I have lots of metal and Iron wall decor, and all through the year, I simply change out the wreaths with the seasons.
I have a black hutch in the kitchen dining area. I love adding fall colors, because it looks cozy against the black backdrop.
On the top of my hutch I added a large basket and filled it with pumpkins and gourds. I added two fall leaf garlands and two berry garlands to add dimension.
Here is another example of adding a wreath to metal wall decor. In this photo I hung my wreath with wire ribbon.
In the family room, on a sofa table I added a few leaf plates.
Here is the family room mantle. I added a lit fall leaf garland and some berry garlands, too! I placed twig pumpkins in amongst the garland. 
I adore the the earthy, warm, fall colors throughout the house.  
I always have an Autumn Tree, so this year my theme is a Pumpkin Tree.
I used a large twig pumpkin as my tree topper, ha! I added tons of fall leaves, twig branches, and beige deco mesh and wired ribbon. 
Happy Harvest, y'all! ;)
In the living room I added two wooden pumpkins in amongst some greenery. 
In the kitchen, I filled up a huge glass canister with tons of multi-colored beans that you can buy at the grocery store. I placed some greenery in the beans and then layered it with some tall fall floral picks.  I took out my pumpkin wax warmer, and placed some "pumpkin spice" wax melts inside, can you smell the pumpkin now??? ;)
In the dining room, I hung a wreath in the window and placed an Autumn floral arrangement beneath it.
Here is the kitchen dining area with the hutch decorated for Fall.
In the office I sat a pumpkin on top of the greenery.
I love this family platter I found at Walmart two years ago.  I placed some sunflower floral picks just under the platter.
Last week, I found these two pretty cloches at Tuesday Morning and placed some Fall Potpourri inside the cloches, to add a splash of color.
In the dining room, I layered with pumpkins, leaves, gourds, and acorns...right around my candle centerpiece.
In this glass vase, I placed fall apples and acorns in around my candle.
 In this photo, I added a fall twig pumpkin that has berries, a small pumpkin, and a big leaf on it.
Here is the living room. I will share better pictures soon. It was hard to get a good shot with my iPhone.
I filled a large glass vase with rustic pumpkins and placed them around my candle.
Here is a shot of our dining room.
I'm in love with the super tall windows in the living room, it lets so much light in. :)
I decorated my mirror by hanging the letter R (for our last name) and added a fall berry garland at the top. I also decorated the home office, too! 
Well, although it's still summer, and I'm loving every second of it, I am also enjoying my warm, cozy, and earthy Autumn decor, during summer, ha! I know, I'm crazy-e!
Thanks for visiting! xo, ~Liz

Putting My Passion To Work

Fall is my all time favorite time of year. The cool crisp air, the changing of the leaves, spiced pumpkin candles, amber colored sunsets, fall boots and sweaters....be still my heart!  When August rolls around, I can't hold back any longer, it's time to decorate for FALL.
My true passion is decorating for Fall and Christmas. I really put my heart and soul into it. I do decorate early to enjoy it for as long as I can. :) Are any of you the same way?
Last week, I worked hard and pulled out all my fall goodies.  
 I purchased this Autumn arrangement from Hobby Lobby years ago and look forward to bringing it out each year.
 See these pumpkins? I purchased these from the Dollar Tree last year and placed them in a basket. Simple, but cute!
I love my Roo's, so all I did here was add some fall leaves to my greenery and a sunflower, whala...Fall!
I think it's great if you can add to existing arrangements, or greenery, so all I did here was place some fall corn on top of my arrangement.
In the photo above, I sat a small pumpkin on top of a small floral arrangement, adding that simple fall touch.
In the photo above and below, I got creative. I used two tuscan canisters, except, I tipped them upside down so I could use them as pedestals to showcase my pumpkins.  I liked the decorative base on them and wanted it to be visible. Why not, right? The tops are hidden, so no one would ever know. :)
I love the yellow Rooster against the orange in my wreath, the colors just POP!
I like to layer my greenery to add texture.
I added some fall corn to a basket and sat it on some faux Rosemary. 
I have two lanterns hanging on either side on my hutch. So, I took two ordinary candles and jazzed them up a bit. I took two fall leaves and tied them around the candle with rope and tied a pumpkin embellishment to it!
Cute and simple.
Here is the hutch decked for Fall.
Add to your existing decor by simply adding fall leaves. I got this fall bushel from the Dollar Tree, $1.00....pick up several and place the leaves next to your everyday decor for that simple Autumn touch.
Or, place a pumpkin here and there.
Leaves can make a big impact without breaking the bank. Simple and pretty!
In this photo, I added some fall berry garlands to my topiary trees. The berry garlands add a great pop of fall color right where you need it.
Add to your existing faux ferns. I placed pumpkin sticks (which can be purchased from Safeway) right smack in the middle of the arrangement, and a few fall floral picks, easy peasy!
If you go to Michael's, or any craft store they usually sell fall "fillers" to be placed in bowls, candle sconces, jars, etc.... I picked up a box and filled my candle scones with these fall colored Styrofoam balls.  See the pumpkin I set on top? Well, it's actually a salt and pepper shaker, LOL! Whose going to know, right? 
I love the pop of color when I enter the Dining Room.
 You could place a small candle in amongst the Styrofoam balls, too!
Hutches are always fun to decorate through the seasons.
Our Fall Dining Room, comfortable, cozy, and casual! 
Love the Autumn glow to the room.
I hope you enjoyed some of my fall ideas. I can't wait to see everyone's fall decorating, I just love this time of year! Thanks for stopping by! XOXO, ~Liz
