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

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
