We love to decorate our home for the fall. There is something about pulling out all our little creatures and favored fall items that make me excited and nostalgic all at the same time. The truth is once the calendar flips over to October, I am in a perpetual good mood pretty much until we get to January. And then I find other happy things to focus on.
This year I added this new centerpiece box to my collections. We have a new DIY workshop that popped up in our little downtown that I will be visiting quite often. Although the centerpiece is not just for fall, I quickly added my fall obsession to it. The fun little cauldron bowls in front are new from Crate and Barrel this year. They were perfect for our first bowl of chili this year.
We have been married almost nineteen years so we have collected fun decorations over the years. I love integrating the season into my house. You might look on a shelf and see my usual decor but a little pumpkin or owl might be right beside it. Take what you have and add around it.
For the past 6 years I have had a Halloween tree. Honestly, it is just getting me ready for the Christmas trees coming in a just a few weeks. I light up my tree every morning and it makes me happy as I pass by it throughout the day. Instead of presents under this tree, I have glittery, fun pumpkins.
My side doors are complete with spooky wreaths and a simple burlap bow.
Yes, even my animal statues are subjected to getting into the spirit. This is sweet Hanna. She loves to dress up too. (Yes, all my animals have names).
It’s not too late to add your flair to the holidays. Also look for steals and bargains right after the holidays. Pick them up and store them for next year. I know I will be adding more before the big night. Let me know if you find something I need.
