Fall is here…officially! It’s the season I look forward to the most for many different reasons – crisp air, beautiful fall colors, pumpkins, PSL, football, sweaters, falling leaves, and more PSL. I’m addicted to just about pumpkin everything, so I started decorating a smidge early for fall. This despite our unseasonably warm 90 degree temperatures!
It starts on the outside of the house with pumpkins on the porch and a fall wreath on the door. I have about a dozen of these wreaths that I’ve made – this has to be my favorite color combo though. I love mustard yellow and burgundy. It’s an amazing color combo! We also bought pumpkins last weekend, a front porch isn’t complete unless it has pumpkins! A fun tradition we’ve started with our kids is the Pumpkin Fairy. Come mid-November, those pumpkins are ripe and ready to go to the garbage. It started when Johnny was a little boy, he cried and cried when it came time to toss the pumpkins, so we left them out for one more night. He went to bed and Brand pitched them. We left quarters in place of the pumpkins. It was such a treat! We’ve carried on the tradition with Paige, because she loves fall and pumpkins more than I do!
Inside the house, you’ll find more pumpkins but they are all glass or ceramic. My sofa table is completely seasonal. I constantly change picture frames around the seasons – they evoke memories and make me smile. It’s so easy to change pictures every year or keep the same picture for several years.
Perhaps my pride and joy this season is the fall floral arrangement on my sofa table. From the fall collection at FTD, the Flow of Gratitude Luxury Bouquet has made me so, so, so happy. Featuring beautiful Royal Sunset LA Hybrid Lilies, rich red and soft orange roses, green hydrangea, orange snapdragons, bupleurum, and lush greens this bouquet comes in a lovely gold metallic vase. It’s just stunning. This is one of those bouquets that I wish would last forever!
I continue with my fall décor in the kitchen with itty-bitty gourds and change the wall décor so that feeling of fall is noticed through my house.
It’s definitely fall in the Seery house! What do you do to decorate?
