Like previous years, I’m taking my time to transition from summer to fall.  Just a few hydrangeas, apples and pears…to slowly ease my way into autumn.  If you’re like me, you tend to keep your September decorating very subtle.  After all, there’s plenty of time to go crazy with pumpkins in October!

Simple Ways to Set the Table this September:

With all the natural elements available this time of year, it’s pretty easy to set a fall table.  Here are 5 fall table ideas you can try!

    1. Thanks so much Amy! Yes, I know how you feel! I’m always heartbroken when summer ends but I also want my kids back in school full time so they can feel normal again! Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Laura! I’m usually right there with you kicking and screaming but this year, I’m excited for my kids to get back to school full time. They really need some normalcy. Having said that, I’ll be outside enjoying the sunshine as long as possible!

  2. Thanks so much Shelley! Great tips! I’m having trouble letting go of summer too and I think maybe it’s because I felt like I lost the summer in 2020. All the cancelled trips and outings that I’ve tried to cram in to this year and there just isn’t enough time! I’ve started a few fall projects though and this post is inspiring me to get busy. Thanks again and have a great week.

    1. Thanks Denise. Yes, you’re right. We did lose 2020…and 2021 in a way too. We still haven’t really traveled so I hope things get back to normal as soon as possible!
