Don't worry, I am NOT decorating for fall yet. It's the end of July for goodness sake! I have seen some great link-ups talking about fall decor already and if you have been in Hobby Lobby or other craft stores lately, you surely have seen the aisles of orange, brown, and gold seasonal goodies. Fall is my favorite time of year. I love football weather, getting out my sweatshirts and jeans, and decorating for fall.
I wanted to post a couple pics of how I decorated my mantle and sofa table for fall last year. This year I am going to try to go a different route with my decor, but I really do love the items I already have. Hmmm...I am going to have to figure out how to use what I already have and make it look different. I love a decorating challenge!
Here are the pics from last year:
This year I want to keep my pumpkins and "wheat stalks" but put a fall wreath or something else large above the mantle. I didn't realize then what a huge space I left empty up there! In the top picture, the acorns are keepers--I love them! I also love the real mini pumpkins and funky-looking fall gourds. I don't plan on using the silk leaves.
So what about you? Have you thought about Fall yet or are you too busy still soaking by the pool? I know I should enjoy the time I have left of sweet summer. Soon it will be dark far too early and I will be complaining that I am cold. :)
