Is it just me, or did September fly by?! That was when I brought out all the fall touches of decorations in our home—September 1st, to be exact. I thought I'd let you in and show you around our home and all the little fall touches I have sprinkled around.
I have touches of the season all throughout the house and most of them are what I've had for years. This runner was a gift from my mom and I use it from September through Thanksgiving.
I have little pumpkins sprinkled about the downstairs, just along with my other stuff. I don't want to have so much out that I have to put other things up—so as a general rule, I try not to have too many knicknacks.
If I do have knicknacks, they're in this tiered tray in my kitchen or on bookshelves. I do have some things that I keep out, but again, I am lazy and don't want to have to move a ton of things out of my way as I clean. I try to keep them contained. Things like this are kept either in storage containers in the attic (just one for fall) or in my hutch in the dining room, for easier access.
In the year, I always have a decorative plate in this stand, so I just switch them out for the season. I also keep that little vase with flowers out and add to them.
I have a basket full of cozy blankets for people to grab if they're cold, which are also there throughout the year, because we keep our house like the frozen tundra.
