Simple Fall Decor

I have never been one for decking my entire house in seasonal decor. I’m totally not knocking those who do, I’m just not nearly organized or energetic enough to manage that kind of thing year round. Even my Christmas decorations have been on the understated side the last two years. But I do like to change up a few things here and there to acknowledge the time of year, even if I’m the only one who notices. All of my “fall decor” can be spotted in the photo below (pantsless baby and Halloween cat included).You can see also that I’ve been making some progress in general decorating–I got a storage ottoman to slide under the sewing table and hung a few more frames on the wall.

On the sewing table: a metal pumpkin that I bought at my first ever estate sale and a short cylinder vase full of pinecones I found in my parents’ yard.

On the bookshelf: the mason jar lid pumpkin that I made last year and a couple of leftover pinecones tossed into the silver bowl that was already there. The cylinder vase was full but it seemed a shame to put the remaining pinecones into a drawer, so here they sit for now.

And lastly, Halloween Cat! Actually, her name is Sheila, and she’s difficult to catch on camera because she avoids Jack and Juliet (both of whom are almost always on my heels). She is very sweet and well-behaved and I love her.

I don’t even have a pumpkin on my porch yet! We were going to hit up a local pumpkin patch on Saturday but since it was expected to storm all weekend we postponed, then of course the weather was gorgeous most of the time. Maybe next weekend!

  1. Once again, I love yoooooooou! I don’t do much seasonal decorating either. For some reason it doesn’t excite me. Everything is so orange and brown and dead-looking in the fall! My house is all done in blues, so it doesn’t really fit. I look forward to the end of the holidays so we get more year-round ideas on Pinterest again.

    I have a nail next to my front door, and I switch out a variety of holiday-theme wreaths during the year. That is the extent of my outdoor decorating. I also have a wood-frame chalkboard above my stove and I’ll draw something on that for each holiday. The kids get excited when they see something new on it.

    My other issue is my kids’ birthdays are in October and December. If we are having people over for their birthdays I have to put out birthday stuff too. I hate for the birthday stuff to have to share space with holiday stuff. It would just be too, too much stuff around. So, I sort of have a free pass to never do too much for Halloween or Christmas, hee hee.

  2. I like the ottoman under the table. I was getting tired of looking at the electric cord and plug and wondering how you were planning to hide them! Enjoy the fall. If you ever need pinecones, we have plenty around here I can send :)
