Give Your Home That Fall Glow!

Updated: Sep 24

You know that friend who just has that knack for adorning their home for every season? Yeah, that one... Guess what? This year, we can all be that friend! Believe us when we say, it's pretty simple AND affordable!


So grab your pumpkin spiced whatever, snuggle up with a buffalo plaid sherpa and LET'S DO THIS!

ON THE OUTSIDE

"put a little pumpkin on it"


#1 - It's all about the pumpkins.

Line your front steps/porch with pumpkins! Find pumpkins that vary in size, shape and color. If time is not on your side try a local grocery store. Trader Joes has a variety of pumpkins in all shapes and colors at reasonable prices. Want to add a little flare? Add some mums amongst those pumpkins.


PRO TIP: Kill two birds with one stone and go to a pumpkin patch with the family. Have the kids pick out their favorite.


#2 - There's a reason there's so many wreaths at target.

Either grab a wreath hook for over the door or 3M strips work well too. Target is a great spot to find some fall wreaths that can be stored and used year after year. Think warm colors when you make a selection.

#3 - Don't forget the door mat!

Layering door mats add such a little punch! Amazon makes a great buffalo check mat that when placed under a statement mat, gives it a little something something. Again Target, Amazon and Walmart have some great options for those statement mats.


PRO TIP: The buffalo plaid mat can double for the holidays!


ON THE INSIDE

“color can change the whole scene”


#1 - Make the kitchen the apple of your eye.

A simple wooden bowl with apples is a subtle statement that adds pops of reds and greens to a room. And hello, they're a great snack option as well!

EXTRA CREDIT: Add fall colored dish towels AND/OR change displayed coffee mugs to a fall color! Yup, be that person.

#2 - Add some fall foliage!

Snag some faux or live plants and add them to varying height vases for a table setting or adorn an entryway or coffee table. Trader Joes (who really does Fall right) has a variety of fall stems that work great for just this and again are extra affordable.

#3 - Textures and Textiles.

Swap out the throws! A fall colored throw and pillows can change the whole vibe of a room!


#4 - "OMG It smells so good in here!" - everyone who walks through your door.

Fill the room will fall by adding a pumpkin spiced candle to the coffee table and while you're at it, add a fall inspired hand soap to your bathroom or kitchen sink! Target is our fav. for seasonal hand soaps.

So, grab some spiked hot cider and make your way online for some safer at home shopping, y'all! You got this! When you're done, can we come over? Wait, no! Send a pic instead :)
