Fall Decor Ideas

Fall cannot come soon enough for me.

We have had an extremely hot summer and I long for the cooler, crisp days of Fall.

I have been doing some prep work to ready for some Fall home decor.

I always look back on what I did in years past.

These are some of the things I have done.

Some of you may remember them, and hope my new readers will enjoy it.

In decorating for Fall, I usually start in the Great Room with the mantel.

I did a simple mantel to include vintage books, my usual tall candlesticks,

blue and white ginger jars for a pop of color, a wooden monogrammed plaque,

and a  vase of fall grasses.

Here are some detail photos of the coffee table vignette,

using my Plush Pumpkins in ironstone pieces

and a wooden crate filled with dried hydrangeas.

I plan to add more Plush Pumpkins to the Fall decor this year.

I have been purchasing new fabric for Fall pillows for the Great Room

and going through my Fall stash to see what plans for decor I can come up with this year.

More ideas coming soon…..Have you thought about your Fall decor yet?

I know, it is a bit too hot to think about it in some areas of the country and some

of us want to take in every moment of the summer days!

Have a beautiful day!!

    You’ve given me major fall envy! We had a week or ten days of rain and unseasonably cool weather which was a horrible tease. We’re back in the 90’s now. UGH

  8. I love your Fall decor Shirley and can’t wait to see what you do this year! I’ve thought about it and took a page from your book and started cleaning to get ready. Other than that, I’m trying to just survive the rest of Summer. I’m ready for cooler days and nights. Here’s hoping they come sooner rather than later!

  10. I love that coffee table vignette♥


  11. Love the hydrangeas with the velvet pumpkins…a breath of cool air. Lovely. 🙂

  12. These are some great fall ideas Shirley. I have not even begun to think of fall, though it is my favorite time of the year. I was hoping to have the house sold and moved back to the mountains before October, but so far nothing….

    It certainly felt like fall here in UT today with cooler than normal temps. I too have been contemplating my fall décor. I have always loved your plush pumpkins!

  14. Gorgeous, as always! I love those old books!!!

  15. Yes, I am so ready for FALL. It cannot come quick enough. I am so tired of HOT HOT weather. We did not have a winter and went straight into summer weather. I have lost so many rose bushes that I am so disappointed.

    I have my tubs all lines up on what I am going to do. I probably will not do as much as I just don’t have the get up and go like I used to.

    Your decorations look amazing. I don’t know where you get all your energy from. Do you have a housekeeper that comes in for help?

    Have a wonderful weekend. How’s that little Sweetie?


  16. Beautiful fall decor Shirley. I am still hanging on to these last few weeks of summer before thinking about fall.
    Hope you have a great week end.

  17. I love Autumn, but I’m not giving up on Summer yet! I can understand why you would want it to be over since it’s a bit hotter down south.

    Lovely decor as always Shirley!
