Our Home: 2017 Fall Home Tour

The holiday season is approaching and I love this time of year! In the past, I've waited until after Thanksgiving to start decorating for Christmas, but the last couple of years, I've started a little sooner. Maybe my best friend Ashley has finally inspired me since she breaks out the Christmas totes as soon as she can! ;)

But around our house, pumpkins and mums are still in full swing and we will enjoy them a little while longer before the Christmas decorations come up. I thought I would share with you how I incorporated fall touches around our home this year.

Eddie jokingly refers to 2017 as "the year of the white pumpkins" And...he may be right! :) We took Charlie to a local farm in October for all kinds of fall fun. I was SO happy to find out they also sell locally grown pumpkins at the most affordable prices! I decided to use them in my fall decor this year.

Here are a few snapshots of our home decorated for fall this year!

Because I was using the white pumpkins as inside decor, I wanted to make sure they would last as long as possible. After bringing them home, I soaked them in a bleach/dish detergent mixture for about 10 minutes. So far the majority of them are still going strong! 

I love these pictures of Charlie from fall time last year. He has changed so much! Baby Charlie in a pumpkin costume will forever be one of my FAVORITE things.

I found this wreath at a vintage/antique fair with my best friend Megan. I love how versatile it is and I also plan on using it for Christmas decor too :)

This is one of my favorite quotes and used a chalkpaint marker to pen it on the chalkboard that hangs in our kitchen.

I hope you enjoyed our fall home tour! We will still be enjoying the pumpkins for a little while longer before the Christmas decor starts making an appearance :)
keep in touch!
