Some of you are going to hate me…. I know, I know, it’s only mid-August and my house already has pumpkins out… Oops. It just happened and I couldn’t even help it. Let me defend myself real quick though….. Works about to get cray cray so I know I won’t be focused on decorating for fall… and then I’ll be in Germany for half the month of September…. AND FALL IS MY FAVORITE EVER. So, decorating for early fall with lots of neutrals and green’s only made sense to do this weekend. So, that’s what I did.
I only decorated my living room and dining room for now. And you know they will change as we progress into fall. This year I plan on keeping it neutral for now and then as we transition into cooler weather going with plaids and your typical autumn colors.
I also didn’t use any new fall decor in Phase 1 of fall decorating (that’s what we are going to call this). I have a couple of things on order and can’t wait to get them in but, the only thing I bought for this go-round were apples at the grocery store. I am always happy with myself when I can be resourceful and use things I already have :).
I’m liking the change in wall decor with the drift wood wreat here. I think it adds a nice rustic element to the room which makes me think of fall. This wreath was from Pursueing Eden last year.
I struggled with what quote I wanted to write on on my chalkboard but finally settled with “Autumn paints in colors summer has never seen” I thought that was fitting for the time of year since we are still technically summer……
Next up, the bar cart. I’m not in love with what’s going on here but, for now it will do. White heirloom pumpkin is from Pursueing Eden last year.The baskets are ones that I had mums in last year that I obviously killed.
The pallet FALL letters are one of my favorite pieces of fall decor. They came from a local store last year. The pumpkin pillow is form Ms. Craftberry Bush via Society Six, green pumpkins are from world market from last year, and pumpkin garland TJ Maxx.
OK, so I lied. I DID buy these dandelions this year for fall decor. Aren’t they adorable?!
Thank you guys for stopping by and not judging me too hard for decorating for fall in mid August.
