Fall Decor Round Up

Well friends, I’ve been slacking on the whole blogging thing lately. Not off to quite a good start, but it happens. Life sometimes gets in the way.

It wasn’t until I was taking down my fall decor and putting up my Christmas decorations that I realized I never took pictures of the ways I decorated this year. So I snapped some pictures as I went.

Fall/autumn manor

Always next to our TV we have orange sticks on display to bring some color into our otherwise fairly neutral living room.

Fall/autumn mantle

My favorite decor, no matter the time of year is a great garland to place on your mantle. Daniel disagrees because it occasionally interferes with turning the volume up on the TV, but thats a story for another day. I found this garland at Pier 1 last year. It has plenty of fall colors in the leaves as well as a few berries and pine cones. It also hides the sound bar and cords  underneath the TV, so for that I appreciate it.

pumpkin lights

I found these pumpkins at a small shop last fall and fell in love with them, they are a little bit on the rustic side, but can be up all season.
fall/autumn lantern

Lanterns are a great way to bring in seasonal decor. I think they are subtle and can move around and fill the space where there may be some decor lacking. This year I put a autumn spice pillar candle along with some berries, leaves and straw to make it festive for the season.

Fall/autumn table settings

To me, fall is all about the burlap, straw, orange, reds and browns. I also am a sucker for anything gold so I was able to incorporate some as well. I normally keep our table somewhat set because you never know when you may have some guests. Above is how I had it set for most of the fall. The burlap runner is from Target and works well with many different settings. I found the pinecones, acorns and glitter pumpkins at Pier 1 last year. The place mats are this year from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Lastly, the wood disk is from Michaels. I utilized it to bring some height into the setting.

Home decor is not complete with out a seasonal scent.This year we burned Fall Festival in our living room. I think scents help to really bring all your decor to life and create the cozy feel when you come home at the end of the day.

I justified taking my fall down a little early this year (Sunday before Thanksgiving) as about a week prior I hosted a “Friendsgiving” with some girlfriends from high school. I love entertaining and am truly grateful for friendships that have continued since graduation and the ability to reconnect with some other ladies after college. In addition to hosting, I made the turkey, stuffing, and gravy and no one ended up in the hospital so I think I succeeded and consider myself a true adult now.

Ignore the bad lighting, but here are a couple pictures of the table settings from that night:

My place settings were fairly simple and I was able to utilize things I already had for decor and for my tables.

The first table I utilized woven placemats to incorporate the straw feel. I also had red, green, orange plaid napkins which I tied with straw and placed faux leaves in the tie to really make it feel like fall.

At the second table, I added brown napkins and white plates to what I already had set at the table. I went with something a little more simple to not distract from the fun placemats I had set. Additionally, the gold glitter pumpkins are in my opinion the highlight, so I didn’t want to take away from that.

Dinner parties are kind of grand. I look forward to hosting many more for the rest of the holiday season.

Hope your Thanksgiving was great!

XO,

CoCo
