Wildcard Wednesday: Fall Fun! (Part 4)

Well, you've seen my kitchen, living room, & entry, but it's not fall without a few pumpkins & gourds outside! 

So here is a glimpse of my front porch.

In the spring, my front door looked something like this.....
.....but now a fall wreath adds some interest.

Our walkway is somewhat narrow, so I try to keep it fairly simple. 

Remember these lanterns from my tablescape earlier this year?  Well, they always come outside to play this time of year.  I love the warmth they add!
Plus, as the sun goes down, they provide a little extra light for guests (& next week, trick-or-treaters!)
Burlap ribbon, some greenery, & pine cones dress them up a bit.

The other side of the walkway displays a larger lantern, along with an urn filled with pumpkins, gourds, & corn.

Just for fun, I placed a small pumpkin inside the lantern.
 I just love all the colors of fall!

Happy Fall!

Wildcard Wednesday: Fall Fun! (Part 3)

In my opinion, the entry way is one of the most important areas of my home because it sets the tone for the house, so when it comes to fall decorating, of course I can't leave it out!  But it doesn't take much to warm it up for the season......
.....a few pumpkins, berries, & foliage, & it's ready for fall!

Once again, I just traded out the nests & eggs from spring! 

If you're interested, check out my living room & kitchen fall decor as well! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Wildcard Wednesday: Fall Fun! (Part 2)

Last week, I shared a few fall touches in my kitchen, so this week I'm moving on to our living room.....

See this?

Well, if you remember, back in the spring it looked more like this.....
I just trade birds & added some pumpkins & fall foliage, and viola!
(I can also easily transport it to my table for a fun & easy centerpiece!)

The nests & eggs on the coffee table were also traded out......

.....and some decorative acorns & berries were added to warm it up a little.

And one final touch was added to the living area (remember, I told you I kept it simple this year?). 

Remember the armoire?

Well, a little fall sparkle was added to the top....

And that's it!  Just a few touches here & there!

Join me again next week.....same time, same see a little more fall!

Wildcard Wednesday: Fall Fun!

Fall just might be my favorite time of year........crisp, cool weather....all the rich, beautiful colors....yummy chili & soups....scents of cinnamon, pumpkin, & banana nut....& OU football of course! 

Typically I replace my spring decor in June for my more neutral summer decor, and then the first of September, I bring out the fall.  But this year, my summer was filled with first trimester nausea & fatique, so just last weekend I took down my spring decor!  That's right.....I skipped right over summer & went from spring to fall!  I decided to not do quite as much fall decorating as I normally do since our hands are full with preparations for the little one, but I couldn't resist doing at least a little.  So over the next few weeks, I'll share bits & pieces of my fall decor with you.

If you remember, there are a couple spots in my kitchen that I change seasonally.  One of them is my set of glass canisters.  You might remember that in the spring it was filled with nests & eggs. 

Well, a few quick changes, & it's ready for fall!

I also like to use my cake stand as a seasonal display.  I figure if it's gonna sit out on my counter year around, it might as well serve a purpose.  In the spring, it looked like this......

....but now it holds pumpkins & berries!

Well, now you've had a peek at my fall decor!
Join me again next week for more fall fun!
