~Fall Around The House~

Today's post is a compilation of some of the fall decor around our home. I am almost finished; but I wanted to get this post done to link up to some of the parties coming up. You may have seen some of these images in my previous posts; but, I am also including some of the latest additions. I've also mixed some thrift finds in with my new decor.


The fall decorating began with the fireplace mantel...

This was the mantel in September...

I found the shimmery pumpkins at Michaels on sale, and painted them with metallic blue craft paint!


I love the pops of blue!


Now that we have had the first chill of Fall, the lanterns have been brought in for the season; and they have replaced the candlesticks...





The next thing I decorated was the coffee table...


I love all of the fall accents...




This week, I finally made it over to the kitchen. I did my first tablescape of the season...


The napkin rings were a thrift store find. I paid 99¢ for a bag of 6 or so. They were shiny brass; and I spray painted them with Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. The green goblets were from Dollar Tree last year. (They still have them this year!)


Next to the breakfast area, the office doors have been decorated with swags; and the iron piece above is garnished, as well...






I kept the pot rack simple, with copper pots and a leaf garland...


Below the pot rack, on the center island, the tiered fruit bowl has been filled with fall accents...


On the other side of the kitchen, this little vignette graces the buffet island. A copper tray holds a fall swag, a copper pot, and framed fall subway art that I found on Pinterest...


This copper ice bucket was found at an antique mall for a steal! I decided to use it as a vase, for now.




Inspired by my sweet friend, Liz, at Savvy Seasons, I created a cloche using one of my cake stands and a glass dome...


I kept it simple with a small white pumpkin, some moss, and a few fall leaves.

A fall leaf garland garnishes the decor in the powder bath...


And this cute little leaf dish sits on an end table in the family room...it was a 79¢ thrift find from last year.




This weekend, I hope to finish the foyer table, dining room, and the front porch. I'll share those as soon as I can!!

Well, that's it for today. I hope you've enjoyed your visit!
Happy Fall!!!

  62. I was thinking exactly the way Becca was. I love the mix of blue with the fall. Both on your mantel and in the bowl on your table.

    And I can't wait to see how all out you go for Christmas. :)
