Fall Decorations

Thought I would share some pictures of what our house looks like decorated for fall.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute, Ha.

I have to share them quick before I start taking it down next week.  For now the house is in a confused state with a crazy mix of fall and Christmas décor, not to mention all the totes for taking down fall and putting up Christmas.

I think next year I want to find a way to decorate for fall that flows seamlessly into Christmas.

 

025

Anyone have an idea for how to do that?

027

I have found that starting early for Christmas makes the season less hectic and more enjoyable.

030

I want to be very intentional about the time we have with the girls still in our home.

032

And not spend it rushing

033

or us not doing things because there is no time left.

034

They each love the Christmas traditions that we do and have been playing Christmas music for weeks.

036

I am wondering how a post that started out about fall decorations has turned into a post about Christmas with my girls.

038

My mind is a crazy place….understatement of the year !

041

Any way I love the fall décor in my house.

045

But I am so ready for the glitz and glam of Christmas decorating.

046

And more importantly I am ready for what Christmas is all about….

047

The birth of the One who has the power to change lives.  I am more thankful for that than anything.

I love all of your fall decor. But, I am like you, ready to start Christmas. I love to get the tree up early, then we can enjoy other things as a famiy, like watching Christmas shows on tv with the tree lights on. Kinda sets the mood. LOL
Hope you have a fabulous weekend,

Your fall decor is deliciously simple! I think that's the best prep for Christmas, don't you? Keep the fall decor simple, so the transition isn't such a huge deal, just a process that can be enjoyed. :)

your Fall decorations are beautiful! i especially love the simple piece on the piano...
i love the decorate for Christmas early as well, but i think it's due to the enormous amount of "stuff" i have!

I like the framed hymnal.

Wish I had a suggestion about the take down/put up seasonal decor mess question.
Some people decorate both for Halloween and Fall. I just decorate for Fall so from Sept 22 to end of Nov., I have months of a set theme.

I try to do a mixture of fall and winter decor so there isn't much I have to take down. I still haven't put up my Thankful wall sign and it probably won't go up this year, lol.
Love all your decor!!
