Early Fall Decorating Ideas to Transition from Summer to Fall:
In addition to sharing my early fall decorating ideas, I’m joining a group of 9 other bloggers for a Fall Home Tour!
My friend, Andrea from Design Morsels is hosting us and she is the first stop on the tour! Be sure to swing by to see her beautiful fall decor. If you are just arriving from Bluesky At Home …Welcome! Carol’s fall mantel ideas were wonderful! Also remember to visit the rest of the bloggers listed at the end of this post. Get ready for tons of early fall decorating inspiration!
Early Fall Decorating Ideas:
Now, if you’ve read my blog before, you know that I don’t normally rush from one season to the next. That’s especially true when it comes to transitioning my decor from summer to fall. In fact, I usually don’t even start decorating for fall until September. This year I decided to make an exception and start a little early with my fall decor. After all, in 2020 nothing is normal!
Early Fall Decorating in the Foyer:
Since my hydrangea bushes have been bursting with flowers, I decided to use the hydrangeas as the starting point for all my early fall vignettes. And what better place to start than the foyer…
Each season, I like to update the decor on my foyer table. Recently, I purchased the buffalo check table runner at the Pier 1 – Going out of Business sale. Since I love mixing navy with green, I felt the runner worked well with my green hydrangeas…and green apples! In the past, I’ve decorated for fall with red apples too.
Lately, I’ve been loving galvanized metal containers. They’re great if you want to decorate in farmhouse style and they can make even simple grocery store flowers look festive! I’ve used mine many times over the past few years.

Early Fall Decorating Ideas in the Kitchen:
Since I already had some blue in the kitchen, I added more hydrangeas and green apples to a corner vignette. To highlight the green apple decorations in the kitchen, I simply placed one of the apples inside a glass cloche.
Then I just continued with the blue accessories, hydrangeas and more green apples on the kitchen island…
I love decorating with this round tray. Because of its rustic farmhouse look, it seems to work with everything. As you can see, I added a textured pumpkin to the mix for just a hint of fall. Obviously, I’m not going too crazy yet. Since I couldn’t decide between the wooden candlestick (above) or the glass hurricane filled with hazelnuts (below), I’ll show you both options…
Both looks incorporate my green apple and blue theme…

Early Fall Decorating Ideas in the Family Room:
Let’s step into the family room where I already had some navy accessories…
On my coffee table, I added more green apples and hydrangeas to my rattan tray. To tie in with the navy in the room, (and hide a frayed section of the rattan), I simply placed a navy napkin under my dough bowl. By the way, this rug is also new! I’ll write a post on that along with a full room reveal once I replace a chair in the corner.
For now, we’ll just focus on the blue and green fall vignette.
Like I said, trays make a great base for tabletop decor. Normally, you’d find our remotes here…and probably various items my boys left around. Today, I prettied it up for early fall though. We’ll see how long this lasts…

Early Fall Decorating Ideas for the Living Room:
We’ll wrap up the early fall tour in my living room. Once again, I simply added a bouquet of hydrangeas to the coffee table. This time I used a textured seagrass vase to go with the British Colonial vibe in this room.
But I haven’t put away my shells yet! Soon, I’ll probably switch them to pine cones. For now, I’ll just hang on to summer just a little bit longer!
Hopefully, I inspired you with my early fall decorating ideas!
