Decorating for Fall

30 Sep Decorating for Fall

I know, I know…I’m talking about decorating for fall on the last day of September!  I may be a little behind, but when it comes to months of the year, I always think of October and November as “Fall”.  Here in New England, September usually still feels like summer…the kids are still wearing shorts and t-shirts, we have warm (even hot!) days, and there’s still sand on the floor of my car from our last beach days.  And if you’re tempted to buy those first mums that appear in the stores and garden centers the third week in August, the blooms will definitely not last until late October!  So before I start hauling up my “Fall Décor” boxes from the basement, I need some chilly nights, apple picking, and autumn leaves.  Now that it’s looking like this (below) here in Massachusetts, I’m ready to go! (I did pick up some red mums last week, and they’ve been flanking my front porch steps).

When it comes to fall decorating, I usually cover these three areas: 1. The Front Door/Entrance  2. The Mantle and 3. Table tops

These front entrances are lovely!

Don’t forget a pretty wreath (or two!)…Autumn wreath. White pumpkins look good on a dark door.

Isn’t this a great (& easy) idea! Use a hot glue gun to keep the corn in place, then just wrap the twine around it!
