After showing you my “dream team” minimal & modern fall vignette inspiration the other day, I hope I don’t disappoint with the real-life vignette I’m sharing today!
We had some friends over this weekend and, as I shared on The Gathered Home Facebook page, I tend to procrastinate cleaning the house until the pressure of company forces me to rush about like a madwoman for the preceding six or so hours getting everything done. (It’s my system. It works.) Naturally, while zigzagging between vacuuming, sweeping, and stirring spaghetti sauce, I decided it was the ideal time to do a little fall decorating as well.
I already had everything on hand, making this officially the laziest fall decorating post ever.
I mean, I put some sticks in a pitcher.
And of course I used the infamous wooden hands, for a slight spooky nod to Halloween.
My definitely-fake gourds and pumpkin that – fun story – have been living on the floor of my car for the last year or so…don’t ask!
And a few of my friends from my brass-animal-menagerie (everyone has one of those, right?) that felt particularly “fallish”. They are forest friends. The squirrel looks like Gollum. The usual.
That is the extent of my fall decorating for now, though I’d love to do some fall crafts and sprinkle some more autumnal knick-knacks around the house.
But now, I’d love to hear about how you decorate for fall! Do you go all out for Halloween? Sprinkle a few orange leaves around? Do you favor pumpkins of the real or foam variety? I’m all ears!
