Add Fall Decor to Your Home
Adding fall decor to my home is a given for me and my family. Fall colors are so warm and welcoming. I am so glad to have you here!

Mantel and Hearth:
A mantel and hearth are natural places to add fall decor. Dollar Tree leaves are a bargain for adding a touch of fall anywhere. Fill a basket or tub like my big metal pot full of pumpkins and gourds and tuck the leaves in between them for abundant fall decor. Although I didn’t capture them in this photo, adding fall pillows, or just adding fall pillow covers to your pillows is an easy way to switch up your decor for fall. These are similar to the covers I bought this year. I love how these add fall decor but keep the hints of blue I have in my home!
A pair of birdcages I first added to my mantel when I first started decorating for fall, still perch there with some new additions. Wooden words, “autumn” and “gather” were discovered at Bullseye’s Playground at Target along with a sweet little fox.
When we bought our home it had a funky electric fireplace. If I were to have a fire, it would not be electric! When we restyled our mantel and fireplace, we decided to remove the black electric insert. This leaves us a great spot to style for the holidays. This rustic metal vessel is an import from Asia which seemed perfect for a collection of pumpkins. Faux pumpkins, fall leaves and berries suggest the season with the rich colors. A galvanized lantern with a candle that comes on automatically every evening offers a nice warm glow.
A short stack of pumpkins graces the top of a chippy bookshelf. I like adding as many real pumpkins for my fall decor as my pocketbook will allow!
In the Tavern Room:
Many people ask me what a “tavern room” is. When we first moved into this home, we were not sure what to do with this large room that had been added onto the back of our home. While browsing home builders’ websites, I came across many with plans that featured “tavern rooms”. I thought this was fitting for our space. A space where we could have a big table that everyone could gather around for holiday meals, a bar and a sideboard to hold extra serving dishes.
I styled my table as shown above for my Welcome Fall Tablescape. Next week I will be sharing this table all dressed for Halloween.
There is always a little nod to coastal in my home. This great faux shell holds different things through the year. Right now it is filled with soft sculpture pumpkins in blues and grays. In the background you can see that fall colored throws and pillows are added to chairs for that fall decor look.
We don’t get a lot of fall color in Florida, so I add color with pumpkins and mums. See all of those brown leaves? That is what we get from all of the Sycamore trees. Lots and lots of big brown leaves! Don’t you love taking the time to pick out fun pumpkins. I know I study them and make sure I select the ones that call to me…like this one with the cute curly stem!
Speaking of those big brown leaves, see that garland of leaves? I made that using the abundance of Sycamore leaves. A dear friend suggested the black and white buffalo check for ribbon, I think it was the perfect choice!
A lantern is trimmed with fall decor and adds a warm glow to the porch on these evenings when the sun is setting much too soon. When you don’t get pretty fall leaves, you just have to buy them! I added some pretty fall leaves by sticking them into my mums and tucking them in amongst my pumpkins. Just like indoors, adding fall pillows and throws to the front porch is the perfect way to add fall decor.
