Every Girl Link-Up || Fall Decor


 September has arrived, and we are transitioning to fall at our house. I am never ready to let go of summer, but decorating for fall has gotten me excited about the upcoming season. This week in Pennsylvania, our temps are in the mid-eighties (the highest they've been all summer), and I am soaking in the warmth. Before I know it, we'll be pulling out the jeans and flannels, baking all things with pumpkin flavor, and cuddling up under blankets, and that doesn't sound too bad either ;)

Today's installment of Astleigh's and my Every Girl Link-Up is FALL DECOR. As per usual, I decorated our mantel, my favorite decorating space that is the only surface my boys still can't reach in our house :)  The colors that I focused on are a bright apple red and a soft orange. And I am pretty fascinated with pumpkins right now, so they're my main theme.


The adorable wooden-twig pumpkin with a string of lights is from Michael's. I just bought it on Sunday after Astleigh tempted me with a photo of hers on Instagram. It looks so beautiful lit up in the dark!

The three real pumpkins you'll see in these photos are from our garden! There are five total pumpkins that have grown this year, and the photos don't really show how big they are! All five are the same tall and skinny shape. They composted from the pumpkin that I grew last year, and I'm guessing they each weigh around 20 pounds!

 

The "Well, Hello Beautiful Glorious Fall" print was found here. I thought the little gold, glittery leaf was perfect!



The red leaf bunting is from Michael's, and it pops on our newly white fireplace. The leaves look so realistic to me, which I love.



I bought a few bags of fall M&Ms to fill an apothecary jar. The two red candles are Glade's limited edition "Apple Tree Picnic" that I picked up at Walmart the other night.


I've had the "Fall is Fabulous" pumpkin print for a couple of years, and I found it here.


Funny story. . . we cut these black-eyed susans from our yard yesterday morning and brought them inside. I thought I heard a fly buzz out of them, but I didn't think much of it. Later, I found THREE bees on our bay window, angrily trying to get back outside. They must have been asleep on the black-eyed susans! It took me a long time to get them out of our house without getting stung, and I've learned my lesson to check wildflowers before bringing them inside! What ended up working? Fly-swatters dipped in honey and then thrown out the window once the bee attached. ;)


We finally got our butcher paper roll back up after painting our walls a couple of months ago. The writing is based on Psalm 107:37: "They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest."

      The boys notice, but honestly, they don't seem to care too much about the fall stuff.
