Decorating My Home for Fall

In the past, the only holiday I really decorated for was Christmas. I had a few little things that I'd put out for Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween and Thanksgiving, but Christmas has always been the holiday where I went all out. Well, this year when September came I was ready to switch out some of our decor and when I saw these salad plates at Pier 1 I decided to decorate for fall. It makes sense because we have Thanksgiving at our house every year, so we might as well decorate for it!

I found the cream pumpkins at Home Goods and the Give Thanks blocks were an Etsy purchase several years ago. The shop was called SimpleBlockSayings, but I'm not sure she's a seller anymore. I've included a few other options below.

I added a little pumpkin from Michael's to this little alcove by the stairs and have started burning my Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake candles from Bath & Body Works here and in the kitchen. I also have several fall wallflowers going in the house. I think the Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte is my other favorite pumpkin scent from their fall collection.

I found this adorable Football Turkey Shelf Sitter at Kirkland's and then Pumpkin Patch sign is from Down Grace Lane on Etsy. Right now she doesn't have anything for sale, but if you follow her on Instagram (@downgracelane) she announces her sales a few days ahead of time - her next sale is on 10/8 at 1 PM EST.

One of my favorite pieces in my kitchen is the lazy susan I purchased from Signature Swag on Etsy. Gather is a word that makes me think of Thanksgiving, so I thought it would be appropriate to include it in this post. However, I keep it on display year-round, and it's perfect for serving appetizers on when we have company over!

An easy way to decorate for the season in your kitchen is by adding seasonal towels. It drives Michael a little crazy that he's not allowed to actually use the towels that I have hanging up in the kitchen, but they're "for display only." ;) Target has several cute fall towels. I picked up these at Home Goods last year, so I showed some restraint and only bought two. ;)

I loved this one and this one, but I'm kind of partial to burnt orange, so I picked up the orange plaid and this fun pie one.

I found the pumpkins at Home Goods and Michael's, and the placemats were another Target find. The cute little give thanks sign is from Kirkland's and the Eat, Drink, and be Thankful sign and the pumpkin are from Michael's. The Rae Dunn BLESSED mug, pumpkin container, and topiary are all Home Goods finds.

I definitely didn't go over the top decorating and kept it pretty seasonal as opposed to focusing on the fall holidays, but I love the little touches of fall that I was able to incorporate in our home. How do you decorate for fall?
