Fall Decorating

Now that the hurricane has passed, it's time to put (back) up the fall decor!  I always love decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving because the pieces are fairly subtle, and it's a nice ease into "decorating mode" before we go all-out for Christmas.  Unlike last year, when I took photos of the fall decor around town, a lot of houses still have their storm shutters up, but I bet they'll be back in full swing for Christmas!  The last two years, we've decorated in our apartment, but it was fun this year to see where things would fit in the house.
With our anniversary and my birthday at the beginning of fall, cards are always the first decor that goes up ;)
One of my absolute favorite bits of fall decor are the photos from our engagement photo shoot three years ago.  They were taken in October, in a beautiful park where we lived in New England, and I love how to leaves are so perfectly peaking!  We keep a couple of these out throughout the year, but fall is the best excuse to put out a few more frames.  (That amazing Charleston pillow is by my wonderful friend, Kelley, too!  Check out her Etsy shop!)  
Fall is also one of my favorite seasons to bake.  With flavors like apple, pumpkin, pecan, and pear - how can you go wrong.  Here are links to some of my favorite fall recipes: Pumpkin Ranger CookiesApple Crisp, and Pecan & Apple Pie Cake Pops.
And if you check out that last photo above, you'll notice a delicious platter of Rice Krispies treats.  For my birthday a couple of weeks ago, Mike made me my favorite Cake Batter Rice Krispies treats that Kristin invented.  Add some fall sprinkles, and they definitely count for fall, too.

Do you decorate for fall?  Are you dressing up for Halloween this year?

Love all of your fall decorations! & that's such a good reason to put out extra shots from your engagement session. You've also given me a good idea about how to incorporate our brewery ones into our bar cart area... :)

Love all of your touches of fall! What a great idea to put up fall photos...we had some done a couple years ago. I should change them out in some frames too. Thanks for the idea!

I love the golf ball pumpkin!

Now that I'm in a house, I need to acquire more things to decorate. My goal is to have each holiday have a box. We'll see how that goes!

Your house looks very fallish. Love those towels and orange appliances in the kitchen. I haven't decorated. I have a couple candles and towels and that is all. Just not quite into it yet :(

I decorate for Fall. Fall is definitely my favorite season.

I won't be dressing up on Halloween but I will be wearing a costume for an event that I'm attending the weekend before Halloween.
