fall decor

Happy fall.. or “autumn” to some!  Thought I would share some fall eye candy and show how it can be created on a budget.  Having said that… the bigger budget the better – ha!

Here is my front door.  I’ll tell you a bit about it before I go into everything that is wrong with it :)   Every year I try to get a variety of pumpkins.  I spray paint my pumpkins different fall-like colours.  I often will just spray a bit of copper on my orange pumpkins.  Id like to collect the fake ones from Michaels, but they are quite pricey.  So I buy 1 or 2 every year with my 40 or 50% off coupons…

Now, I know my display is a bit small scaled for my entry.  Remember what I was saying about what is wrong with it?  Ideally Id love some of those large scale Restoration Hardware black lanterns sitting there. “Sigh”.  Even a Superstore Lantern would suffice to match the small one already there.  Unfortunately at this time of year they all have skeletons on them – yuck!  Larger pumpkins too would be nice.  Like I said, you can create a gorgeous display on a budget, but the bigger budget the better :)

Monograms are always lovely – even on a pumpkin.  This is a pumpkin I collected last year from Michaels and drew our last initial on it.   I really do love it.

Now isn’t this a fun project:  One I haven’t had the energy for quite yet!  You’d definitely want a fake pumpkin for this one.  Wouldn’t want to see all your hard work rot at the end of the season!

And our front door wreath:   Ive had this for years.  Adding things as pieces have fallen off!  My favorite part is the feathers that Ive put on it… just for something different.


Another awesome DIY:  I love this wreath.  I am hoping to do 2 for my patio doors.  I’ll get back to you on that :)



And here are some vignettes Ive created in our house.  Mostly with things Ive collected over the years.  Sometimes Michaels will have fall foliage on a great sale, especially after Halloween.  Over the years Ive cut them and used them in different ways.  Plus at the grocery store you can pick up fall gourds and squash that fit with the scheme.  You can even spray paint them.  The gold mercury pumpkins I got at Homesense for $7.99 each!  I have a nice jar Id like to fill with candy corn, but I haven’t come across any in bulk yet.

Superstore has got some good buyers on their team!  I love all their owls.  Owls have been so big in decor this last year.  The large one pictured here would be a nice addition to my front door!

These pumpkins are from Pottery Barn.  I just love them.  You could fill a little corner of your house with them or put them at your front door.   FYI, this doesn’t fit into the “budget” category.  I bought some of these pumpkins from Roost for our church’s fall display.  They are stunning!  Also shown below are some more goodies found at Pottery Barn.  Their fall faux squash are like none other.  They put Michaels to shame.  But you pay for it too.  And what a lovely fall table setting!

I hope you’ve got some inspiration.  But if seasonal decor is something that you simply can’t or don’t want to tackle yourself for your home, business or organization, let us know.  We have packages available where we will come and take care of it for you, whatever season it is.  Christmas is a popular time to have a little extra help to bring seasonal cheer to your home or business.  We’d love to chat with you about it.

I always like to hear from you too!  Don’t forget to leave a comment.

Happy Fall!
