Prepare For The Fall

As soon as mid-August comes around, that’s when I start preparing. Do you love the Fall too? I know you do!

There’s a good reason most of us do. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Spring and Summer too, heck, I even love the Winter months but, of all the seasons, the Fall is uniquely special. 

First, I start collecting some new throw pillows for the Fall. Throw pillows are one of the first things I do when prepping for the Fall. They instantly add pops of color to any room and are so comfy and make a stunning decor statement. 

Like this adorable Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice Throw Pillow –  it’s so festive and gets you right in the mood for the Fall!

Or this super adorable Fall Breeze & Autumn Leaves – Perfect for any room in your home. I need to get this one for my recliner!

Next, is decorating my front porch! Nothing says Autumn more to me than making sure my front porch is a warm, friendly, and cozy place to chill. We love spending time there sipping warm beverages, watching the leaves and shrubs morph into majestic thrones for the bird to perch.  

Key decor elements always include:

  1. Lanterns
  2. Candles – I have so many favorite candles but these candles made it to my best-of top 5 list! 
  3. Mums
  4. Bittersweet Vines – I love decorating for the holidays with them too! 
  5. Blankets
  6. Autumn Decorated Wreath
  7. Lighting
  8. Pumpkins
  9. Wheat Stalks – they make perfect decor elements for the Fall
  10. Metal Bucket Planters – I love them for Fall Decor. They are perfect for pumpkins and live plants too!

I love decorating with Wheat Stalks – they make wonderful decor elements for the Fall – you can use them in a vase inside your home or in an arrangement outdoors.

I just got this beautiful huge lantern and can’t wait to decorate it for the Fall! Should I paint it white?

I am so in love with this Fall Wreath called the Marseille Natural Dried Lavender Wreath – Fragrant and Beautiful! 

Prepare For The Fall

This Fall Wreath is gorgeous too! It has beautiful Lavender Flowers that are actually artificial – perfect because it doesn’t shed!

And of course, there’s shopping for new fall decor too! I love these Autumn Browns Rattan Cane Battery Powered Led Wooden Ball Fairy Lights! Aren’t they adorable? I will be using them to decorate my porch. I’m also working on a craft project creating some Rattan decor. I can’t wait to tell you all about it! 

Prepare For The Fall

Of course, there are other things I love to do to prepare for the Fall like:

  • Collect acorns for crafting projects
  • Decorate the interior of my home with Fall decor
  • Decorate the back yard with lights and pumpkins
  • Create Fall Decor Vignettes around my home
  • And of course, make some delicious autumn beverages

I’m super excited as well about this Dough Bowl I just ordered! That will be filled with Fall Decor as well. 

Prepare For The Fall

I’m also in love with this Deep Wooden Dough Bowl with Handles – I think I will have to get this one too!

Prepare For The Fall

If you are decorating for the Fall as well soon it’s time get those plant planters ready and filled with mums and fall plants. They are available in such a wide array of colors! 

Prepare For The Fall

Mums are great for adding that perfect Autumnal look and feel to anything you decorate.

And of course, there is this tree to look forward to seeing on the grounds where I live.

  1. Our decor tastes and plans are so similar Carolann. I have been trying to find a wood dough bowl for a centerpiece as well, but unfortunately they don’t ship to us far away Canadians. Oh well, I will keep looking. I look forward to seeing what you do with the lights and the dough bowl.

    Oh do I look forward to those posts. Enjoy your planning.

  2. Thanks so much, Leanna. I see that too! I love this dough bowl and can’t wait to get it. It’s back-ordered from Pottery Barn unto Sept. 20th :( Maybe I will get lucky and it will get here sooner. Like a kid in a candy shop! lol I saw one on Amazon that I love as well which is on that same post. I just might have to get that one too! Have a wonderful upcoming week and hope to see you on sm soon!

  3. While you’re preparing for Fall we’re getting ready for Spring here in South Africa and I must admit I can’t wait. Autumn and Winter are not my favorite seasons I’m afraid. I go into hibernation with Mother Nature and don’t feel like doing anything other than snuggling up with a good book in front of the fire. Maybe I should take some notes from you Carolann and find things so I can prep for Fall instead of crawling into my shell :D

  4. The pillows are just a dream come true and the dough bowls are my favorite but I like everything of course and for some reason, I am happiest in the fall.

  5. Hi Michelle, We always go nuts over the Fall. It’s like a big event lol. I can understand about the hibernation mode but it’s always a great time to do a lot of indoor crafting :). Snuggling up is always nice too! I’m having so much fun prepping and thinking of fun projects…if I only had the time to get them all done. lol Always good hearing from you!

  6. Hi Sue, oh gosh, there are so many things on my Fall wishlist – if I only had a million dollars to buy them all lol. I love the pillow so much. I think I will have to get a few of them for sure. Yes, happiest in the Fall for sure. There’s something magical in the air and it’s coming soon!

  7. Carolann, my favorite season is Fall! I lived in NY for many years and when we moved to Greece I was miserable because here we don’t have a proper fall. I really enjoy decorating for fall and making pumpkin pie. Looking forward to it with a vengeance!

  8. Hi Mary,
    Oh yes, gosh, you must have missed the Fall greatly. I always say I couldn’t move to a place without the seasons. Too bad Fall doesn’t last for 6 months! lol. Have a great week!

  9. I know that Pottery Barn ships to Canada as I have ordered through them before. Thank you for the tip I am going to go see what is available. They are so nice for fall decor. I also love the Mums, I never bothered with them until a couple of years ago and now I really enjoy them for fall.

  10. Hi Amber, that’s not my front door – I wish it were. I’m still in the processing of decorating. I feel in love with that decor and used it for inspiration. I love shopping for fall decor and am about to head out for some things today. Thanks much and have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

  11. That front entry is amazing! I have always wanted to go all out on my front entry but steps up to the door allow for so much more layering and you created an incredible display!


  12. I love everything you presented. I bought mums too. Do you know you just thought me an English word? I was wondering how we called these flowers in English. In French, it’s “chrysanthèmes”. Much easier in English! lol

  13. Hi, Natalie, That’s so cute! Here in the states, they are called chrysanthemums and we just call them Mums for short. So glad you enjoyed the post and learned a new word too lol. Have a great weekend!
