Inspiration & Ideas to Update Your Home for Autumn 

I usually start decorating for the fall in September, but this year I’ve had so much going on in preparation for my little nugget’s arrival that fall decor had to take a back seat!! I honestly debated if I should just skip it and start prepping for Christmas but I kept seeing such beautiful fall inspiration everywhere- I gave in and got to work! Some of these items I’ve collected over the years but I’ve linked what I could ! If you have questions, please comment below 🙂

 I love using a tray or basket on my dining table so when I need space for dinner I can just lift this entire thing up easily instead of picking up individual pieces.

All items above purchased from HomeSense. Shop the “Blessed” Pumpkin HERE
These boxed potpourri sets are great to add as “fillers”. Place them in lanterns, serving bowls or in different sized glass vases for a quick and affordable centerpiece! I  fill a small basket with them in my bathroom for some decor AND everlasting freshness!

These fillers were Purchased from HomeSense but you can purchase something similar HERE
and HERE
I always purchase tons of smaller pieces vs big ones because I feel they’re more versatile. I can place small little pumpkins next to the kitchen sink easily or group a bunch of them together on the mantle without taking up too much space! Bigger is NOT always better 🙂

Purchased Last Year from Target ! (They have great fall decor but you need make sure you shop in August to get the good stuff! )

Shop HERE for similar small pumpkins or HERE.

Decor Tip: When shopping for decor pieces, choose items that are similar to the color scheme of your home with only a few items to add a “pop” of color.   I always look for things in varying heights and textures to add dimension and character!

Most of my home is decorated with metallics/metals and very little “rustic” or wood accents so I use this as my little “pop”. I love using small baskets to store my MILLIONS of blankets and it also serves as decor. 

Planter box with pine cones and pumpkins is from HomeSense.

This is my side table in my family room. The large silver platter (from HomeGoods) remains year round but I just change up the “filling” based on the season! 

Pumpkin is from Bed Bath & Beyond
Here for the Sparkly Gourd Fillers & Leaves
Trays like this one are super handy year round! The only thing I’d have to switch out in this picture is the pumpkin and replace it with something season appropriate! For example in the spring- you could replace a little easter bunny or for Christmas you could replace it with a large ornament or small Christmas tree! This tray can also be used to display appetizers when you’re not using it for decor (just put a sheet of parchment paper on top ).
