Fall touches around the house
Hurray for Friday, this week I have been adding more touches of fall around the house. If you missed part 1 of our Fall Home Tour you can find it right here.
Our front porch usually doesn’t get much attention because it is so darn small. I dream of a wrap around porch with rocking chairs but I don’t think that is happening anytime soon. Meanwhile I will just have to make our tiny little space work. Isn’t Mr. Owl so cute!
As you walk in I decided to add some lanterns mixed with pumpkins heading up the stairs, I love how they look at night! Such a pretty, warm glow and it makes the house feel so cozy.
I am in serious love with the antique pumpkin tea light holder. I love how the scrollwork creates whimsical shadows in the dark.
To prep the table for Thanksgiving I decided to add a little extra color with pops of red and green using pumpkins and napkin rings.
Next I decorated our buffet for the very first time. I filled the Mason Jar Drink Dispenser with guards and pumpkins, added my antique scale and a table runner I made. (more on that later)
I think I am all finished decorating for fall, before you know it Christmas will be here!
Everything looks so pretty and festive Kristin!!
My favorite thing about fall is the colorful leaves.

Just wanted to say thanks for being so sweet and replying back to my comments, not many bloggers do that!
Everything is looking so lovely over at your house. Your fancy pumpkin is my favorite. I love the shadows from the scrollwork that it casts on your walls! Is that from Pier 1? Thanks for sharing.

Kristin, you add just the right amount of decor for the different holidays. Some go waaayyy over board, but you have such great taste, and I feel we have similar styles! Love you blog….it’s my FAV!
Love Pier 1 AND love your use of lanterns! I love lanterns too!
I love all you showed us. My favorite thing about fall is the colors of the leaves. I love how everyone uses natural items for decorating like branches, burlap, gourds, pumpkins, corn, etc. AND I love the fresh smell of the newly crisp air in the mornings.
I love the mercury glass candle stick holders and the autumn leaves candles.
Hard to narrow to one favorite thing about Fall; so much to love! All the common responses are my list toppers too: colors, crisp air, weather, pumpkins, decorating, soup, lit candles, fire crackling in the fireplace on cooler, rainy days — coffee in the morning overlooking fog/mist almost snagging on the treetops as the day starts, football games (even if I don’t watch many- still love the energy), back-to-school rhythms, the anticipation of Thanksgiving gatherings with family & friends…. the list goes on. 😉 Enjoying your blog tonight – happy to have found it! Hope you have a great week!
My very favorite thing about fall is that we get to have fires in our wood stove again! It’s so cozy!
I love your antique pumpkin tea-light holder too, beautiful! Now favorite thing about Fall – hmmm, the changing of the leaves!
Your home always looks so inviting Kristen!
I am loving Mr. Owl!!
Love you the red and green!
I love the cooler weather! I’m in Austin, Tx and cooler weather here means 80 degrees! 😉 I also love making caramel apples, cookies, our Halloween party, etc. I could go on and on!
Pier 1 always has gorgeous stuff for every season! I got a super cute orangeish owl there last fall and I was so excited to get it out this year for my fall decorating! Great giveaway! Thank you.
Mmmm…I love the cool, crisp weather…warmly colored leaves…apple cider…pumpkins and bonfires! I guess I love it all! 🙂
My favorite things about fall are the colors, weather, anything pumkins, bonfires and riding boots!

Beautiful! I love the mix of white pumpkins with orange- I would love to find some around my area. Where did you find yours?
I love the combination of the blue runner and the orange pumpkins. A nice twist on the traditional fall colors.
I love your fall decor!
I love the holidays are coming, leaves are falling and cooler weather!
I love the way you decorated your small porch. It really made it come alive.
I love the cooler weather and the beautiful colors of the leaves.
Even though I always hate to see Summer end, the best part of Fall is the colors!
I love Fall!! Living in California we need the air conditioner from June thru Sept. Once Fall hits off goes the air conditioner and the doors can be opened!
My favorite thing about fall is getting together with friends and family!
Fave thing about fall? Hmmm, so many things, but the best thing are the warm days and cool evenings, before the first frost, when farmers are in their fields harvesting their crops.
I love the visual changes that occur outdoors, in fashion and home decor. But I’m not a fan of the cooler weather!
I like the cooler weather
Kristen, everything looks stunning! Wow! Thanks so much for sharing and for the giveway. Pinning and sharing! Have a fabulous Tuesday!
I like getting to break out my boots!
I love being able to break out all of my comfy sweaters! It’s my favorite season!
the cool weather
Such pretty fall touches! Love Pier One!
YAY! Who couldn’t use a Pier 1 gift card?
I really like your subtle use of natural color. Fall has so many nice natural bright colors, it can be easy for some to get cartoon-y with it, but you have great taste and really made tasteful use of appropriate colors. Very nicely done!
My favorite thing is the color of the leaves and I have to admit the food items available 😉
I just got the same pumpkin tealight holder and I love it!
My favorite thing about Fall is the food!!
Love your blog. Happy to be following you
My favorite thing about fall is the weather.
I am so sad I missed the giveaway but your Fall decor is GORGEOUS. i am in LOVE with that Owl too. Pinning! xo
Bummer…missed the giveaway, but LOVE all of your beautiful fall touches. The table is gorgeous!
Pier 1 has the some of the most unusual and best decor for any holiday. I’m always getting ideas when window shopping and looking at their catalogues. Love the lanterns with votives which are seasonless.
