When you live in the south, you do not have a true fall season. Sure, we break out the pumpkins and mums, but it’s still 90 degrees outside! Football season is the start of fall in my opinion. It just puts you in the mood for all things cool weather related, even when it is still HOT.
I hung my fall door hangers the last weekend in August. I couldn’t wait any longer! Last year I asked my dear family friend, Gwinn Stitt, if she could make me some pretty door hangers. She made these using a paper umbrella as the holder. She is the BOMB! A good friend of mine gave me some pumpkins that she grew in her yard and I found the gourds at Naifeh’s Cash Saver.
I don’t have a whole lot of fall decor, but I have a table runner for every season/occasion. Table runners are my thing for some reason. Therefore, I set my kitchen table with my fall table runner, orange dishes, gingham napkins, and cotton tumblers. My centerpiece is a glass vase I filled with wine corks and pumpkins. When Christmas comes, I fill it with wine corks and ornaments.Home Goods| Napkins: Amazon Prime (color: natural) | Plates: Fiestaware | Placemats: Pottery Barn | Pumpkins: Hobby Lobby
This table runner was actually a wedding gift, but I am positive I have seen it at Home Goods. I purchased the napkins back in the spring when I was getting ready to host Easter at my house. I drooled over some in the Pottery Barn catalog, but could not convince myself to spend that much on napkins. I decided to look for some on Amazon and ended up finding these. I have loved them so much and they wash well! I am not necessarily a fan of Fiestaware, but when my mother in law found a small set of orange at a yard sale, I had to have it. It works for Fall and for Tennessee football parties :). I bought the placemats several years ago from Pottery Barn, and they almost need replacing. The sun has faded them a lot over the years, but I am still holding on to them. The Cotton tumblers came from my granny’s house. My Pop was a manager for the Federal Compress, so my granny has accumulated a lot of cotton things over the years. I mentioned that I liked them one day and she let me have them.
My dining room decor was an after thought. I originally had not planned on decorating in there, but decided to throw something together. I may add more to it next year, but it will have to do for now.Waterford, Lismore Lace Gold | Flatware: Lenox Vintage Jewel | Stemware: Waterford Colleen Encore | Pumpkins: Amazon Prime
Our back patio is our favorite spot to be during the fall. We enjoy watching football and grilling out with friends. We are looking forward to using the outdoor fireplace as soon as this weather breaks! One day, I plan on adding a mantle to the outdoor fireplace. I will update you on that once we get one.Best Choice Products
