How I Created Fall Inspired Indoor and Outdoor Decor

I am in a “Fallsum” (In between Summer and Fall) state of mind.

Looking back on my Fall creations both indoors and outdoors.

From my table vignettes:

Can you tell I love Fall Mums?…

~ ~ they are everywhere inside and outside my home in the Fall.

Love to decorate all three porches using lots of mums and pumpkins.

Farmers Market in the Fall

I cannot wait to go to the Farmers’ Market and load up my van with lots of beautiful mums . . .

~ ~ and pumpkins of all sizes and shapes . .

Fall Vignette

So I can begin creating my Fall decor like this vignette…

Have a great “Fallsum” day . .

  1. I, too, am DYING to get started. In fact I bought 3 tiny 4 inch mums the other day to put in pots that had grown VERY tired. SOON it will be time. I have LOTS of plans to decorate inside and out, like you! Your home always looks spectacular dressed for Fall!!!!!!!!

  2. I think fall is my favorite time of the year here in NC. I love mums, pumpkins, gourds and arrangements made with fall branches. Your fall looks lovely.

  4. Very pretty, Shirley. It’s just a bit early for me, but I should go up to the attic and make sure I can find all my stuff. I know I was missing things last Fall that I just could not find (then found this past January when I put Christmas away!). I’m looking forward to getting some mums.

    Love the peek back at previous years Shirley! I am getting a bit excited to decorate for Fall also. The weather here lately has felt very much like Fall! I love mums and lots and lots of pumpkins! They have so many fun varieties now. I have a few growing in my garden, but not nearly enough. lol! All of the photos were fabulous and I love the term Fallsum!

  9. All of that Fall décor is pretty but I’m not thinking Fall here in GA. It’s in the upper 90’s here! The heat index alone is over 100.

  10. Thanks for the Fall inspiration! You always have the best seasonal decor! I love the various colors of pumpkins you chose and the mums are spectacular! I’m so ready for the cooler crisp days of Fall! I love your term, “Fallsum”!

  12. I am so ready to start decorating for Fall that I can hardly stand it. But no mums or pumpkins in the Nurseries yet. I haven’t even seem them in the grocery stores. Last Fall I found beautiful BIG mum plants at Cosco, after the flowers died out I planted it and it was so pretty, but it has already bloomed to early.
    Next week will start going through my tubs for some decorations.
    Your vignette looks so pretty on the table and I love your fall pillows. I love how your porches look, so inviting to sit a spell.
    Have a great weekend. Happy shopping for mums.

  14. A very timely post! My flowers are suffering…so next week I’ll be looking for some mums to put in a few pots. Fall is my favorite season…can’t wait to get out some of my fall decor! 😉

  15. Gosh, Shirley, this makes me want to get home and pull out my fall decor. I don’t even have a plan! I just pull it all out and start playing. That farmer’s market is spectacular. I could really do some damage there! It’s still hot here; but, I may have to change seasons inside!

  16. I love your Fallsum looks! The sunflower in the lantern is my favorite though. Oh hurry Fall! It’s my favorite time of year to decorate for. Ok, it’s my favorite time of year, period. :oD
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  18. Beautiful pictures! Fall is my favorite season.

  19. I’m holding on to Summer for dear life, although this year has been pretty much like Autumn all Summer! Having said that, Autumn is really my favorite time of year, and thanks for the new work ‘Fallsum’! I think you’re on to something :).

  22. Looks like Fall is coming!!

  23. Hi, Shirley! I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus. Still am, actually, but needed a little inspiration this morning to jump start my day. Even though I’m not working on anything “fallsum”, I just needed to get my brain into creative mode…so here I am!

    You always create such pretty vignettes, and I have no doubt your home inside and out will be a knockout for fall again this year! I’m looking at all the fall mums and knowing I’ve got to get some sooner than later! We’re getting our first day of something that feels like fall here today with a high of 73 expected. Hooray! We’d been in the 90s all week, and I am SO over that!!!

    Thanks for the boost! Have a great weekend, and I hope to be back on the blog circuit soon!
