September is here, y’all, and with it, my favorite season: fall! To me, fall means Starbucks pumpkin lattes, SEC football, boots tucked into jeans, and beautiful décor in lovely autumn hues.
I went to college in South Carolina, and it was there that I came to fully love fall. It was the first time I saw the leaves of trees go from green to red to yellow to orange. Some trees were so beautifully orange that they looked like they had been set on fire. The gorgeous orange hue of the leaves next to the chocolate brown of the tree branches has to be one of my favorite color combinations.
I’m so excited to start decorating for fall. Every year, my mom purchases gourds, squash, maize, and pumpkins with which to decorate our mantel. The cream, green, brown, burgundy, and orange colors combine beautifully to create a fall mantelscape.
I’ve made it my goal this fall to be a bit more DIY when creating my autumn décor. Last year, I made a monogrammed pumpkin (still obsessed with that project…it was so easy and turned out beautifully!), but I want to get a little more hands-on this time around.
Whenever you’re decorating for any season, I always think it’s best to air on the side of minimalism. Your home shouldn’t look like a pumpkin patch exploded, but rather appear as if fall has gently landed on your table (with a centerpiece like this one), on your door (with a pretty wreath), or on your mantel.
Stay tuned for updates on the DIY fall décor projects I create! Let me know if you have any great project ideas that you’d like me to try out!
