Adding Fall Decorations To Your Home
You don’t have to break the bank adding fall decorations to your home. And you will see that most of my fall decorations are from the great outdoors, and not from a craft store. I have nothing against craft stores, but if you’re on a tight budget it can be expensive.
When it comes to decorating for the holidays I keep it pretty simple. I don ‘t like clutter everywhere. My fall decorations will be kept out until the end of November. So I don’t like putting Halloween decor up. And in my home we’re out of that phase now that my daughter is grown. Thank goodness, because I was tired of that look too!
As you can see I am keeping it pretty simple. I love using real pumpkins and heirloom varieties are my favorite! Simple little vignettes around my home. I don’t like moving things or changing things around for the seasons.
A bunch of dried hydrangeas in my white ironstone pitcher looks great for any season. This is a beautiful punch of color for this room.
A acorn wreath is hung on my vintage door.I simply added a bit of ribbon to this wreath to hang it. The wreath was purchased from decor steals. You can make your own just be careful. I gathered some acorns one year and added them to a jar. A couple of days ladder I had white insects crawling out of the jar. I bet you know what insect I am talking about….YUCK!
In my dining room I hung another acorn wreath from my corner cabinet. As my centerpiece for the table I added a wood tray and placed some mini white pumpkins on top with my silver coffee server. And added some dried flowers inside the server.
On my credenza I placed an old serving dish with pretty soft fall colors and bunches of tied salt cedar branches.
In my kitchen and family room I am keeping my pink accent pieces out. Yes you can keep your pink pieces out. Just use softer fall colors when you are decorating.
A green Eucalyptus wreath hangs from my French Cabinet. I love placing fresh fruit out. Not only is it decorative but good for you too!
I decided to share a tablescape with you today. As you can see it is a dessert table…..my favorite!
Fresh flowers from my garden. Some grapes and iced tea for a punch of color to my table. A new favorite of mine is collecting milk glass. These goblets were the recent addition to my collection.
And no I did not make these. I am just using them as props for my photos. But my daughter sure is enjoying them!
On my mantle I added more dried hydrangeas. This time I added them to my silver ice bucket. I also added a few squash and a vintage plate to this vignette.
I added a new door to my room. Love the chippy patina, and the colors work perfectly with my fall decor.
I added a bunch of wheat to the front…..I just nailed it on. This chandelier is new I found it at Hobby Lobby they are having a 50 % off sale on lamps and lights this week. I knew this would look great next to this door. I love the bit of sparkle in this room. This chandelier is hung from a vintage bird cage stand that was in my daughters room. I added some gold gilding wax to it. The colors work great for fall and I like the sparkle and gold together….lots of bling! This light only uses a 25v bulb. It does not create allot of light which is perfect the corner of this room.
As you can see I added a bowl of fruit to my table. I love this look and it I were having company I would leave this out. But with a curious cat I am only using this for my photos.
These are perfect fall colors. In the corner of my room I still have my pink chippy table. I did not change this other than add a petite pumpkin to that sweet little cherub inside my birdcage cloche.
As you can see my pink is still out. I am working with what I have instead of putting it all away.
I leave you with this challenge. This fall, look for ways to incorporate fall decor to your home, without purchasing things from a craft store. Unless you would rather have those faux pumpkins which is fine. But add other elements to your home without spending money. See what you have in your garden and bring those elements into your home. I bet you could create a beautiful fall home without spending any money or very little money.
Let me know in the comments how you decorate your home for fall, I’d love to hear 🙂

Such a light and airy home, Anne! LOVE that acorn wreath and the hydrangeas in the white ironstone is just lovely. I love the softer side of Fall!
Very pretty Anne. I too did a softer side of fall this year. Lots of dried hydrangeas and gourds… pine cones and apples. Photos soon…
Love seeing your home tour. your simple Fall touches are all it needs, really beautiful!
Angie @ Knick of Time says
Your home looks lovely, Anne! I don’t pull out much for various holidays either. I don’t have room to store so many decorations, so it’s just easier to use natural elements that don’t need to be stored away. I few pumpkins, pine cones and some fall flowers and that’s about it for Autumn in my house.
Nana Diana says
Okay- Fess up! You got Kris drunk and stole that door, didn’t you? I KNOW there is NO WAY she would part with one willingly! lol Love that blingy lamp, too.
I love your light, sweet take on Fall. I still do some Halloween with the kids around but it is only up for a week or so- xo Diana
Jeanette @ Creating a Life says

Lovely home, Anne. I love how you kept it so simple and elegant. Thanks for sharing your home! 🙂
You have such a lovely home and it’s beautifully styled, too.
Happy Friday xox
Your fall home is simply gorgeous Anne!
Just beautiful Anne, I love the plate on your mantel so I just got up from here and put one up on mine too! It has fall leaves on it and got it at the Dollar Tree a few years ago.
Love that you didn’t put the pink away, It added to your fall decor:)
Denise... on a whim says
Stopping by from your link on Your Funky Junk. You have a beautiful home and I couldn’t help but pin a few (or more) of these images! 🙂
What a beautiful home! I love the white, and collect ironstone, too. I also have a ton of died hydrangeas! What a great idea for the chandelier, I believe I’m going to have to try it!
Anne your fall décor is so beautiful and really suits you and your home. All the hydrangeas are so gorgeous and I love the color. Just perfect!
I LOVE your fall tour. The new door (can’t believe Kris had a spare -lol), the new chandelier, just everything. There is so much to see. That is how I want my décor to look. Work with what I have and not have to put everything else away. So inspiring. Thank you so much.
Carmen Whitehead says
So beautiful Anne! I really like your idea of not moving things around, but adding small vignettes through out. you have really inspired me, thank you!
Your home looks just lovely, Anne. The softer colors of autumn suit your home perfectly. I love your acorn wreaths and the plate with the pine branch on your mantel. I love it all! Thanks for the tour!
Beautiful, Anne. I especially love your vignettes. 🙂
Simply beautiful Anne! I too, am ‘over’ decorating for Halloween. Done. Love leaving the fall decorations up from September thru Thanksgiving. Easy and Simple.

I have scrolled up and down repeatedly…there are so many beautiful things to see and I didn’t want to miss anything! haha I loved the vintage plate with the pinecones and the your styling is gorgeous. I’ll be right over for a caramel apple and a chat. It’s so inviting.
I have nothing to link up for Fall but wanted to tell you how gorgeous everything looks in your beautiful home
LOVING absolutely everything!
Anne, I love your home. You have so many special touches that make it simply, fabulous!
The idea of adding vignettes of fall and not moving things around is inspiring. Gorgeous!
Mary Alice Patterson says
Your home looks lovely with all of your fall touches, Anne! I don’t like to move a lot of things around either when a new season arrives.

Doré BurlapLuxe says
It was so nice to see a visit from you after a long day creating. I am working on smaller items for my etsy, and holiday gifts.
I love the door that Kris gifted you she is a beautiful doll someone truly to adore.
I had no idea you both lived so close tone another 🙂
Loving your pale patina tone of fall over here, it’s certainly my tone of fall as well, the less colour the prettier I can create the fall I live for,mornings of grey and the dew that reminds us of what’s to come.
Your tone on tone is perfectly welcoming as for the Carmel Apples covered in nuts is that burlap tone that mixes in with the whites and cream tones we love so. Yes Anne your fall inspires all things fall farmhouse and we are inspired.
Thank you for your share, thank you for your beautiful visit.
Everything looks fantastic, Anne. Not too much, and not too little. I think the vignette with the silver coffee server is my favorite.
I like all your fall touches, Anne! All the white just feels so right to me. It’s a look I love. I always enjoy seeing what you have done with your collections. LOVE that door! Lucky!!!
Sherry @ No Minimalist Here says

Carlene@Organized Clutter says
LOVE it all!!!! Thank you so much for linking up! Just pinned!
Happy day friend!
Adore the sweet softness your home offers to the eyes and soul. You have a great eye for detail, and keep clean lines (I like that). I hope you don’t mind if I mimic some of it……
You gave me inspiration to begin looking at the many items I have packed away and put out on display, while still managing not to have a cluttered look.
Yes please go ahead.We all inspire each other 🙂
Your home looks beautiful all dressed for fall…DREAMY really 🙂
Anne your Fall touches look beautiful!! Love your mantel display!

Thanks so much Sandi!
Kris @ Junk Chic Cottage says
It all looks so pretty. Love all the soft touches of fall. Gorgeous. Love that you found a new place for the door. I knew it was going to a good home and you would give it a pretty place in your gorgeous home. Everything looks wonderful.
Thanks so much Kris!
After perusing your photos I am thinking of some changes I can make tomorrow. Been bit restless lately and wanting to change few things, Get that way after season changes and so much time with things as they are. Need to make changes that are subtle but noticeable in how rooms feel. Will visit your tour again tomorrow to remind myself. Then I’ll go digging wherever I need to find what has struck me so closely We went to our local thrift store today and then Goodwill. Didn’t find what was originally looking for but that’s ok as found few other things that make me happy.
Really enjoyed tour of your home, so relaxing looking, very soft and welcoming. You have great touch and talent with your vignettes, sure inspired me.
Enjoy your lovely home. I don’t do Halloween any more either, past that point in life and it’s just two of us. Even grandkids are too old for Halloween mostly. Happy weekend
