Preparing for Fall

Fall Wreath DIY_-7

Hi again and happy August 1st!
Yesterday’s post was all about embracing summer and yet here I am thinking about fall. I know, I know…please don’t be mad. To be perfectly honest, I’m still in summer mode and don’t intend to abandon those feelings just yet, but I took a trip to Michaels over the weekend and it got me thinking about fall decor and trying to decide this year’s color scheme.

Do you remember this wreath from last fall? You can see how I made it HERE.

Well, I still love those soft neutral colors with little pops of plum…

…so while at Michaels, I grabbed some more of those pretty florals to make a second wreath that will eventually adorn our front doors.

I also picked up this gorgeous air plant pick. Isn’t it awesome?

Though air plants would typically be considered more ‘summery’, I’m thinking of ways to incorporate it into the fall mix.

I also grabbed this adorable little jar caddie and filled it with flowers from my momma’s garden…:)

I couldn’t leave without picking up some discounted items at 70% off!!

Aaaannnndddd this was very ‘blogger like’ of me, but I happened to have my camera in the car with me so I grabbed it and took photos of the fall goodness for you. Maybe you’ll also be inspired by something you see and get your fall wheels turning…

As you can see, the pinks and lavenders seem to be this year’s trending fall color…

Look at those pretty pink and burgundy pumpkins. How pretty are they?


It’s such a soft and feminine take on fall. It reminds me of my fall table of last year HERE.

They of course also have the traditional fall with all the rich warmer tones…

All kinds and sizes of pumpkins…

This particular display caught my eye…so pretty!

And how about those little vintage trucks?  Adorable.

    Love this! I have never been a fan of traditional fall colors, orange, red, yellow. These subtle colors appeal to me SO much more.

    I love fall. It’s hands down my favorite season. I’m still in “summer” mode too but while cleaning my home this past week I’ve noticed I’m pulling back on the bright blues and yellows and moving towards darker navies and golds. Must be preparing for the full on fall decorating to begin. Haha! I always look forward to you home for fall. My all time favorite was the time you found inspiration little pepper plant. Oh how I loved that!!!

    It is good to think about the fall while we are at the closing days of summer. That jar caddie is beautiful. The flowers from your mom’s garden are so fresh and great addition to the beauty of that jar.

    I love fall but summer is way to short around here. We had quite a bit of rain and some cool days and it didn’t get really warm until late June! I’m not ready for summer to end just yet. Love all those fall flowers and a lot of them look really real. I can’t wait to see how you decorate your house for fall!
