Since we do quite a lot for Halloween, I don't usually do much decorating for autumn proper. But this year felt a little different since A was starting school and I was just so over the summer humidity. I thought maybe decorating for fall in 90 degree weather would will cooler temps into being. And it worked! Magic. You're welcome New York City!

Now let's get to the tour. I knew I didn't want to buy a bunch of new things I had to store. So instead I used bits of nature's glory - pinecones, apples, acorns, etc. - to surround myself with the best parts of my absolute favorite season. Added bonus is that these things transition so perfectly into winter too so no waste.
Hand drawn leaves, mums and pumpkins outfit the front door. I wanted this to be a fun backdrop for first day of school pictures. Out came last winter's DIY wood slice boot mat since I'm just yearning to wear boots again. And in the front entryway, a few paper leaves decorated the hall stand mirror.
In the living room, a vintage tray and bag of apples made for a easy coffee table centerpiece. I made my mark on a mini globe and paired it with a few other favorites I had elsewhere.
The dining room - perhaps where we spend most of our time - got lots of little touches to make fall entertaining festive. And finally I couldn't forget a little kitchen love where I turned some extra apples into a super yummy and fragrant apple cinnamon cake that was a big hit with the whole family.
