Fall Home Tour

Wow, where has the time gone?  I've been so busy with homeschooling, holiday deep cleaning, and back pain, that I haven't posted in weeks.  Well, all of my fall decorations have been up for a while so here's a peak into our home all decked out for fall.

Here's the front yard.  I'm planning on decorating my birch tree for Halloween with a ring of ghosts but I can't put it out yet.  We get really strong winds and I'm afraid it would ruin the ghosts before Halloween.  Speaking of the wind, I had to buy  a new fall flag.

And here's the front door.  You can't tell since I took the pictures in the morning, but I strung up Christmas lights on the garland and it makes a really nice glow at night.

This is the front and dining room area.

 Each table has some type of fall arrangement.

 I found this subway art on pinterest and the candle is one of my favorite fall scents, apple cider.

This is a frame my son made for me when he was taking woodshop.  I painted it white, added some string around the bottom and glued on fall leaves.  I backed it with an extra piece of scrapbook paper and featured one of my favorite Christmas ornaments.

This is our family room and kitchen area.  I love being down here at night.

I love Thanksgiving, in fact, it's right up there with Christmas for me.  This cabinet features some of my favorite Thanksgiving pieces.

I don't typically decorate for Halloween.  However, it's Ethan's favorite holiday so I had to come up with something special for him.  I didn't want to spend any money either so I came up with this tablescape for our kitchen.  I added some extra black and orange ribbon to my leaf garland on the chandelier.  The centerpiece is made with some extra trimmings from my birch tree that I pained white and added bat cutouts.

To add more color to the table, I painted black stripes on my mini pumpkins and embellished them with white dots and a bow.

 I had extra bat cutouts that flew over to the wall.

So that's it!  Talk about picture overload!  Hope you enjoyed the tour and have a great rest of the week.
