It's OFFICIALLY Fall

Let me be the first to say, "HAPPY FALL" to you!! It's "officially" FALL!!!  I thought it'd be only fair to show you my fall decorations in honor of those cool crisp fall temps of the upper 80's we're having here in Texas.  haha!  I'm being sarcastic...can you tell?  ;)

I LOVE this bench I found last year in Canton.  (Canton is a flea market mixed with some oldies and new things...it's fabulous!)  I love changing out the pillows to give the front porch a little festivity.  All the pillows are from T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods, or Ross.


Our little entryway table got a little fall make-over as well. 


I found that "Happy Halloween" sign at HomeGoods.  I try not to do a lot of Halloween.  I like to stick to "fall" so I can leave it up until it's time for Christmas decorations.  But...I loved the look so I couldn't pass it up!


The other side of the bathroom vanity...burlap?  Couldn't pass that up either.  :)


Last year the kiddos and I had some fun doing some DIY pumpkins.  You can find our tutorial HERE.


On the buffet, I added a few pumpkins and a cute little sign.

I scored these two goodies at HomeGoods.  My friend, Elaine, at House of Hargrove always does these fun #letsgoshopping IG posts.  She posted these and I made a dash to HomeGoods!  Thanks Elaine!!


A few other things around the kitchen...





One side of the entertainment center...


And the other :)


I added some garland, pumpkins, and fall goodies to the mantle.  It was missing a little something, so I threw that "Pumpkins" sign into the mix.


Love the way it turned out!  

Last year we'd only been in the house a month or two and I shared my fall decor.  You can check last year's decor out HERE.

I'd love to hear where you find your fall decor?  Where's your fave place to shop??

Your house looks so cozy and warm! When I was over there last week, I wanted to curl up on the couch and read a book (or nap). I think my favorite part is your mantle though :). I love it!

I have never decorated for fall. But we've been in this house for all of 2 days, and I've already bought miniature orange and white pumpkins to put into a tiered stand. I can't wait to throw a little bit of fall all around!

We have a few of the same decorations! The iron candleholder pumpkin on your entry table and the crackled glass owl on your entertainment center! I have them both on my entertainment center. I posted them in one of my Friday favorites posts! Your house looks great!!

Love your fall decorations, especially the bench on the front porch that can be switched out for the seasons. And I'm with you...my fall decorations have to last all fall til I put the Christmas stuff out.

Great minds think alike, I also posted my fall decor today on the blog. I find mantles to be the hardest thing to decorate but you have done up yours beautifully, Erika!

I love your mantle! This year we are going thru a large remodel (our bathroom and bedroom, hall bathroom, laundry room and redoing our 2 girls rooms into guest rooms- they are grown and out of the house now) so I decorated my porch and my family room and kitchen. I found some super cute things at Home Goods this year!

April Parrish said...

Love your fall decorations!!! I've purchased a lot of cute things from Kirklands!!! Have a great day!

Missy said...

I love home goods the most! Where do you find short lamps for kitchen/bath counters to make it cozier& homier?! (Like the one on the side of your entertainment center ) all I can find are tall ones, even at home goods the other day :((

Elaine said...

Love how your mantle turned out!

Alisha said...

What size photo/frame is above your buffet?

Tab & Erika said...

Missy...I found one at Ross and the leopard lamp is from Hobby Lobby.

Alisha...I'm not sure. I'll check when I get home.

Elaine said...

Oh yay! So glad you got them!! Thx for the shoutout. Your home looks beautiful!

Renae said...

I love your fall decor! I have been enjoying this fall weather here in Dallas this past week and decided I would add some of my fall decor last weekend around my house. I normally shop at Kirklands, Hobby Lobby and suprisingly enough I even find some cute little things at Dollar General/ Family Dollar.

Lauren said...

Your mantle looks awesome! I love all the cute décor items. I think I need to hit up HomeGoods really soon!

I love your mantle! I like to shop at the same places you do as well as Garden Ridge (also known now as At Home). I went there today and found some really cute pieces. I'll be posting them on my blog very soon.
