The first day of fall started yesterday, and I couldn’t be more excited. This kicks off my most favorite time of the year. My favorite season is fall for many reasons, starting with football is back. We are a football family, and love rooting for our fave teams! Secondly, I love decorating for fall, it brings me so much joy. Honestly, I didn’t have plans to decorate this year, since we are in a temporary space. We don’t close on our new home until the end of next. However, the boys really wanted us to still decorate in some capacity. I had the boys pick from a few spots they wanted decorated, and they decided the front porch (which was secretly my pick).
I was excited to have the opportunity to work with At Home again to grab everything I needed to create a festive space. If you aren’t familiar with At home they have everything from furniture to holiday shops. Making it perfect to get everything you need for your home. One thing I also love is they have rolled out order pick up on many of their items.
1. Pumpkins – You can’t have a fall porch without pumpkins. Get pumpkins in differences shapes and size, along with different colors. I did a mix of At Home pumpkins and real ones.
2. Corn Stalks & Hay – If you can grab 2 for each side of your entryway. Creates great anchors and brings a fullness effect to your decorations. Hay acts as good layering look to allow you more opportunities to use more decor, and to let them be seen.
3. Welcome sign – Truly whether it is seasonal or not, I always think it is a nice added touch to welcome your guests, and makes for an inviting space. I grabbed the Hello Fall along with the Give thanks sign.
4. Scarecrow & Festive accessories – When I saw the scarecrow I had to grab! I thought they were too cute not to get. With decorating have fun with it. Less is not more in this occasion in my opinion.
5. Door Decor – Finish off each project with putting a fun doormat and wreath. Both will end up being the focal point upon entry.
I strongly recommend spending some time at your local At Home! Especially with the holiday season on the horizon.
