Hey all! Can I tell you how much I use to love fall!? I would be the first in line to buy hot chocolate when it was seasonally released at Starbucks. I would start wearing my tall boots long before the weather required it. I would attend football games, even though I hate watching sports. (GASP! I know, I know.) I would start running outdoors, and would actually make dinners, because soup was a favorite of mine… Then we moved to Florida. Don’t get me wrong, I love living here, but I have realized I have to decorate a little early, and candles are ESSENTIAL to get me fired up for the seasons. (See what I did there?)
So I lit up an apple scented Yankee Candle, and started decorating! Apple has always been my go to favorite scent for the fall, so as I was seeking inspiration for my fall decor, it seemed like an excellent idea! Inspired almost. So I veered from the typical pumpkin scheme, and tried something new, and I have got to say I love it!
I decided to use apples paired with wheat, and eucalyptus for my table scape. I am not going to lie, this may be a new favorite combo! I was a little unprepared to decorate my table this year. So grabbed a piece of cardstock and made myself some napkin rings/place cards. I simply wrote out the names, and added two small slits to slide in a few sprigs! Easy enough. (And as cheap as you can get!)
For the family room, I didn’t have to add much, just a few pops of orange and burnt red, and it completely changed the feel of the room. I cannot say it enough, I love using pop colors for the seasons!
This crated jug has become one of my all time favorite ways to update the room from season to season. If you are interested in making your own, you can get all the details here. Small tidbit: I actually bought all my fall stems at the end of the season sale last year. I was a little giddy when I was going through my fall decor, and discovered the new stems that had completely forgotten about. Isn’t that the best!? I think I had picked them all up at 80% off. Can’t complain about that!
Also if you are interested in building the shelf or the coffee table you can get all the details and build plans here:
Well there you have it folks, my fall decor for this season! I may not be entirely on board for fall yet, but I am already brainstorming Christmas decor for this coming winter, and it is going to be good! You will want to stay tuned.
