It always takes me a little bit longer than most to fully get my wheels moving when it comes to jumping into fall. Honestly, it’s probably my favorite season of the year, especially living here in Pennsylvania, but I’m always hesitant to fully let go of the summer weather and all that goes along with it! Here we are, mid-September, which is when I typically start making the transition. It also happens to be our wedding anniversary today. Sixteen years ago we had as beautiful of a day as we are experiencing now. A perfectly sunny and beautiful September day…I’d do it again, year after year <3
When it comes our home, I don’t make any major decor changes around the house, more like small shifts. I change out some florals and bring out my large bin of pumpkins to scatter around the home. I love that these changes can hang around from September until Thanksgiving, until I’m ready to switch to my Christmas decor where I go a bit more dramatic.

Above I have gathered some decor that would transition into your home for fall and beyond. Changing out textures and bringing in a bit of warmth (with blankets, pillows, candles etc.) is all you really need. I love live pumpkins, but I love pulling out my faux pumpkins that last from year to year just as much. Below you’ll see a few images I gathered from around our home.
A large tray is so helpful to use as a base for a centerpiece for a dining room or console table. It also makes it easy to clean around and remove for dining when needed. I simply added a few pieces of eucalyptus from my floral stash to the pumpkins above, which are all from HomeGoods.
This was our porch from last year,the door has since been painted one of my favorite shades of blue. The pumpkins above aren’t real if you’d believe it! They are also from HomeGoods years ago and I love pulling them out each year.
Mums are the quintessential fall flower and I love finding them in all the shades to spread around our exterior. I plant a few in the front yard, and add them to our back deck as well since all of my summer florals have since bit the dust.
If you haven’t ever tried a DIY wreath, let me encourage you to do so. With a basic grapevine wreath you can simply poke your florals in without having to use hot glue or floral wire if you don’t desire to do so. Mine always hold tight and then I’m able to reuse the wreath with the change of each season. I’ve acquired quite a bin of faux florals over the years, so often I don’t even need to purchase anything new in order to design a new creation.
I hope you are all enjoying the shift in seasons too and are able to draw a little inspiration from any of the simple ideas I’ve shared!
