Fall 2012 Decor

My house is now adorned with my favorite pumpkins, spice candles and all things fall! I will add in a few spooky things next week and then a few turkeys next month, but for now, we are celebrating autumn!

Here is my front porch. I bought the new welcome mat at Target this year, but all other items are just recycled from past years or other parts of the house. I made the wreath last year and blogged the directions here. I plan to add this wreath just as soon as I get it made.

I love my big pot of fake flowers and my little hi sign. This sign is wonderful on the porch!

I did a smattering of pumpkins throughout the house- a couple of pumpkins and acorns on each table.

I really changed my mantle up this year thanks to a simple Pinterest find and a gift card to Michael's that I hadn't used. You can see the difference compared to last year here and my ragamuffin garland how to is here. I bought all of the "interesting" pumpkins at Michael's this year. They have such a great collection of metallics and gourds.

I love having a formal dining room, just for decorating! I added some garland to my chandelier and some cranberries and pine cones to the candles in my dough bowl. Finally, my table is finished off with a fall inspired runner from Pottery Barn, circa 2007.

 The buffet in the dining room has twigs, pumpkins, acorns, my favorite Be Thankful Yankee candle (discontinued last year!), a cornucopia, and my daughter's hand print turkey from 2010.

It may still be warm outside, but it is fall on the inside at my house!
