You guys, it’s OCTOBER!
‘Tis the tradition each and every year here in blog world, it’s my annual FALL HOME TOUR 🙂 .
Nothing changes very much, but it’s always a favorite post for many of you (including my sweet Grandmother!), so I want to share it every October.
We put up the fall/Halloween decorations on September 1st and enjoy every minute of it until November 1st when we put up Christmas. We basically live inside a department store. We like to celebrate big and celebrate early. 😉
Grab that #psl, cozy socks and turn on When Harry Met Sally in the background…it’s time to cozy up and come on in. If you were here in person, you would certainly be greeted with coffee, a Three Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin, the smell of pumpkin spice and a hug.
Few captions, mostly pics, but as you can see, we love fall and are so happy you’re here…
Pumpkins just make me HAPPY!
Now, some of the most common questions I get each year after this post are:
1. WHERE DO YOU STORE ALL OF THIS? We used to store them in plastic bins in my attic. Nothing fancy, just big bins. Andrew would haul them up and down the attic ladder each year, but after our house flooded in 2020, we had to get a storage unit for our furniture, and after we moved back in, we decided to keep that unit for all of our fall and holiday items. Now, Andrew just takes his trailer there and loads it up with the decor.
2. WHEN DO YOU DECORATE/TAKE DOWN? We almost always decorate on September 1st and then we will take it all down and put up Christmas on November 1st. Yes, I know that’s early, but it’s so much work and we love it so much, that we do it early.
3. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO PUT IT OUT? A few hours! I always do it one day while the kids are in school.
4. WHERE DID YOU BUY____? I’ve had this stuff for years and years! Some of it, over 17 years! I would say that my go-to places for holiday decorations outside of specialty stores are Pottery Barn and Hobby Lobby. My friends Amanda and Amy make all of my holiday signs that you’ll see and then my friend Lori decorates all of the plates and platters with my kids’ hand prints on them.
Also, don’t forget that we’ve updated so many rooms in our house! If you’re looking for specific sources from specific rooms, these posts here will be the best bet for you to find that information:
That’s it for today! I hope you all have the coziest fall Wednesday! xx
