Welcoming Fall

This past weekend, we were able to enjoy a little more "home time" than has been the norm recently. I took the chance to do a little fall decorating around our house. The front step got a bit of a fall makeover, and our dining room now boasts some lovely fall flowers. No out-of-this-world changes, but small touches do go a long way.

Our front step is now looking fall-ish with the addition of two pumpins and an assortment of lanterns filled with straw balls, pinecones and candles. It cost me around $16 to purchase the pumpkins and everything else was on hand. Very, very simple but still lovely. (I think it took me all of 5 minutes to put it together so don't get your hopes too high!)

And some fall-coloured flowers I arranged in three narrow vases. Actually, they aren't vases at all. They are old oil and vinegar bottles. (Upcycling at its best.) Just a small way to bring the fall colours inside. The trio runs down the middle of our dining table.

Happy fall, everyone! Have you been doing some decorating for the season?



  1. Beautiful!
    I love the front entrance arrangement.

  2. Love it! Everything you've done looks beautiful. You're so right about little things making a big impact :)

  3. Gorgeous! You are making me want to decorate so badly!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to comment!
