Easy Fall Decorating | Pumpkins

Lately I’ve been thinking about how over the years my idea of holiday and seasonal decorating has changed quite a bit. I remember growing up my mom would go all out decorating for fall with pumpkins and scarecrows and ghosts and jack-o-lanterns and candy corn. No shelf, tabletop, counter, or wall space was left undecorated… not even an inch. So when I finally had my own house to decorate that’s what I did too. Each season I would pull out boxes and boxes of knick knacks and cram our little house full. And then when that season was over I would have to spend another few days taking everything down and putting it all away to start the next season of decorating. While I find so much joy in celebrating these moments with my family, it became less exciting each year and felt like more work, not to mention I was quickly running out of space to store all this extra “stuff” that only came out once a year.

Over time I sold or gave away some of the decor I didn’t love and consolidated what used to be dozens of boxes down to just a few. I fine-tuned my decorating “strategy” to make it as quick, easy, and clutter-free as possible so that I’m able to spend more time carving pumpkins and picking apples than organizing boxes of stuff I don’t need. So I thought I would put together a few posts for you guys letting you in on my minimalist holiday decorating secrets so you can enjoy this beautiful season more too! Be sure to check out my favorite items you can shop for this fall at the end of the post!

My first step in decorating for fall probably isn’t a huge secret to any of you who follow my blog…

It's still fairly early in the season for … [Continue reading...]
