How to Welcome Fall to Your Home

Happy Fall everyone!  Of course, it would be a lot easier to welcome fall if it wasn’t so hot here in New Jersey!  The temps have been up in the 90’s these past few days so I haven’t dared to put a pumpkin outside to rot in the sun…  In fact, I haven’t done too much decorating for fall yet.  So today, I will share some of my ideas of how I have celebrated fall in the past.  Hopefully, I will give you some inspiration of ways you can welcome fall to your home!

How to Welcome Fall to Your Home:

Well, I guess the best place to start welcoming fall is right at the entrance to your home!

Welcome Fall on Your Porch:

Fall Front Porch Decor - Welcome Fall

Fall Porch Decor – The Colors of the Season

Each year, I like to start with a new wreath or door hanging.  From there I choose my colors and accessories (like this cute doormat) for the rest of the porch.  Almost every year, I decorate with mums – which the deer love to eat!  Luckily, over the past few years I have learned to spray the mums with a stinky deer repellent which really works well.  Don’t worry, it only smells bad while it’s wet!

Decorate Your Foyer for the Season:

Simple Fall Decor in the Foyer

Besides the front door, the foyer is the next important spot to add some fall cheer.  In our foyer, we have a console table which I like to update each season.  Just a few simple accessories are all you need.

Decorate Your Mantel for Fall:

Fall Mantel with Apples and White Pumpkins

Usually, I keep my mantel decorated simply but it can be fun to pull out some seasonal accessories and make it extra festive!  I mean, who can resist white pumpkins, after all!

Speaking of white pumpkins…

Set a Festive Fall Table:

Fall Table with White Pumpkins

Autumn Table with White Pumpkin Vignettes

Since I love using white pumpkins, I designed a table setting around them.  From there, I continued decorating with the white pumpkins around my kitchen.  Although I normally use more color in my fall decor, I was thrilled with the way my kitchen looked that year!

Decorate a Bar Cart:

3 Ways to Decorate a Bar Cart for Fall

Ever since we updated our dining room and bought a bar cart, I have been having the best time decorating it!  If you only have a few seasonal items for your home, a bar cart is a great place to gather them together.

Make a Fall Recipe:

Banana Muffin Recipe

Family Favorites – An Easy and Delicious Banana Muffin Recipe

Yes, it’s that comfort food time of year!  There is just something special about the scent of banana muffins baking in the fall.  Don’t you agree?

Hopefully, I gave you some ideas to start bringing fall into your home!

    Such a pretty table setting! I have decorated a bit for fall but do think it’s a bit crazy that it’s still in the mid- 80’s here…. so no mums, pumpkins or anything that will die in the hot sun.

    Living in Florida, we never really experience the beautiful Fall weather you will see soon, but as soon as I started seeing all the Fall decor hit stores, I immediately put out the stuff on my tiny porch. Makes it cheery, and so wonderful to come home to. Lots of other great inspiration here! Best wishes 🙂
