It’s fall! Ok, apparently it’s not fall til September 22 or something BUT here’s how I look at it. It’s my favorite season, and it’s the shortest season by a longshot. So I try and stretch it out as long as possible, and as far as I am concerned, going back to school = FALL. And the 55 degree temps I woke up to this morning would agree. 🙂
Now that I have a front stoop of my own to decorate. I’ve spent the last 5 years or so building up my Christmas decor collection. But I am ready for the next step. FALL DECOR. Who’s with me?!
The thing about fall/Halloween decor is it can get REALLY tacky really fast. So I browsed a few of my favorite exterior shots. People who really get this season right.
Good, right?! Now I am all about that beautiful, simple House Beautiful-esque harvest look. But there happen to be a lot of kids in our neighborhood – we have two schools outside our doorstep. So I want to do some fun things for Halloween too. AND I’m thinking about hosting my first Halloween party since I think this house could be pretty cool with skeletons and a smoke machine and candles EVERYWHERE.
So I want to include a few subtle spooky decorative items for Halloween. And come November 1 it’ll just be a harvest spectacular. So far I’m looking at my go-to destination, Home Depot – where I’ve gotten my Christmas tree and pumpkins for the past… ever. They have a ton of great decorative items too! I link to everything below.
And polishing it all off with an abundance of mums, pumpkins, cornstalks and hay bales! I keep calling the store asking when it will be in but so far all I know is “early September.” I hope it will be a real treat to anyone walking past! I hoop there aren’t any hooligans around who will mess it up.
Will report back with progress soon!
