I. Love. Fall.  I love the weather.  I love the colors.  I love the smells.  And I love the decorations!

Here's a look at how we decorated our house for fall this year!

I bought 2 bundles of indian corn from Walmart for the centerpiece...6 pieces tied up with some burlap ribbon {folded in half so it wouldn't be as wide}.


I added some blue/gray and white pumpkins with the candles and two mason jars I left in there from my normal set up.

Then, I stuffed the extra spaces with some fake leaves I bought from Pottery Barn about 5 years ago {boy have I gotten my money's worth with those}....

The more open areas I stuffed with burlap fabric scraps and acorns.  I didn't have enough acorns to fill the whole box so that's why I used the burlap underneath.

I filled the mason jars with corn kernels and a floral pic from Hobby Lobby.

I just love how good it looks in my kitchen!  On one of our family nights, we wrote things we were thankful for on some place holder leaves I found at Hobby Lobby.  Cooper absolutely loved writing things he was thankful for and it's such a simple reminder for us each evening as we eat dinner together of all of the blessings God has given us!


Here's hoping these gourds don't secretly rot before Thanksgiving inside of here! :)

More uses for the fake leaves from 5 years ago!


Love how easy and festive these candle wreaths from Hobby Lobby a few years back look with a pumpkin on top!
My "Give Thanks" banner has been around a while.  I made it by cutting burlap triangles and sharpie-ing on letters probably 3 or 4 years ago. {Pretty sure I just made up that verb!}  And it looked perfect on my old mantel.

But when I hung it this year on the new mantel, I just was too wide for my skinnier mantel... So instead of making an all new banner, I just added a small wreath to fill this space.  Love how this turned out!



I actually couldn't find a small wreath I was happy with, so I bought 3 small floral pics from Hobby Lobby and made one myself with a little bending and hot glue.

I hope I can't get a lot more years out of this banner.  It just makes me smile every time I get it out!
