The BEST season is upon us!! Fall is here and I couldn’t be happier! This is the sweetest time of year: I love the colors, the crispness as it comes back into the air, the style and fashion, and the scents of pumpkin and apple cinnamon. Over the last couple of weeks I have prepared both my office and my house for the season and wanted to share photos and details with all of you to give you some inspiration if you haven’t started on your own decorating. If you don’t typically decorate for fall maybe this will convince you! A little bit goes a long way – and as usual, I got all of my decor for great prices from some of my favorite places: Target, Hobby Lobby, Picks, Michaels, and TJMaxx. Here are all of the details!!
At the Office
Those of you that have been following along with me for awhile now know how much I love to change up small things in my office for each season of the year. I added some new pieces that go great with my black, white, and gold theme and it adds the perfect touch of fall to my space that I get to enjoy during the week.
Two pumpkins and a new faux floral arrangement on the corner of my desk pack a big punch with minimal changes. The black and white striped pumpkin is glass and I bought it at the end of the fall season last year when all of the fall decor was 90% off at Hobby Lobby. If my memory serves me right I think I got it for less than 5 dollars which is wild!! The smaller black and white polka dotted pumpkin I just got last week from the dollar section/saver spot at the front of Target. The polka dots and black stem are glittery and this cute little guy was only $3! There were multiple other styles and colors in this size of pumpkin and it’s lightweight material.
The glass stemmed jar I dressed up for fall by wrapping twine around it in a wide band. A very easy and inexpensive “makeover” for any vase or jar. The two different versions of beautiful faux floral blooms in the fall colors (golden yellow and a pretty coral orange) are from Michaels. All of their fall decor is 40% off this week so head in to check it out!
I laughed outloud at Michaels when I saw this sign so I knew I had to get it for my office. It was only 5 dollars so it was a no-brainer. I put it on the windowsill with all of my plants. It’s the perfect “fall humor” and I DO drink a lot of coffee….
Since I am such a huge Christmas decoration fan in past years I haven’t done as good of a job of adding fall pieces to my house. This year I decided to be intentional about getting some nice fall-themed decor to have out for September through November before the Christmas decorating begins. I went to all of my favorite stores once the fall decor was out and found the perfect pieces to create a nice fall ambience at home without changing much or going over the top!
I changed out my normal dining room table picture for this sweet black wooden sign from Hobby Lobby. The message about togetherness is the perfect one for this season 🙂 It looks great with my favorite dollar store mirror and the metal basket from the Magnolia-Hearth and Hand collection at Target that are mainstays in this space. Inside the metal basket are 4 different fall scented candles. 3 of them I just bought this past weekend at Michaels as they are having a sale all week on their fall large jarred candles – 3 for 10 dollars which is INSANE!! So if you have a Michaels in your town I highly suggest making a trip there this week to snag that great deal. The black and gold “give thanks” sign is also from Hobby Lobby. Their fall decor should continue to be 40% off for a little while longer I’m imagining so you should have time to score these things (and others!) if you’re interested.
My favorite thing from my table ended up being this fun pumpkin and floral bouquet that I created with inspiration from one of my favorite bloggers. I bought this white pitcher from the Threshold collection at Target for less than 15 dollars and it will be perfect to change out with different things for each season. I placed a foam floral block inside the pitcher and then added a mixture of twine, white, and orange mini pumpkins on sticks that I got at Hobby Lobby. Then I also added two stems of cotton blossoms and some fun yellow faux florals – all from Hobby Lobby as well! Such an easy DIY project that looks so festive and beautiful!!
The only other space inside that I added some fall flair to was my side table in my living room. The gold hashtag light sign is an all year round stay and that was bought at Target last year. The orange and gold glittered larger pumpkin is from TJMaxx last year and then the rest of the pumpkin were just purchased last week at Target – also in the dollar spot/saver section. The largest pumpkin that is black is sprinkled with fun silver and orange sparkles/confetti. All of the mini pumpkins came in a set (2 black, 1 white, and 1 orange – all glittery!) and were only $3. There were lots of other items in the dollar section that would be so cute for fall but I didn’t want to go overboard! Your budget can go a long way if you stick with shopping in that section!
The last touch of fall at home was to buy some mums to enjoy outside over the next few months. I got both of mine at Menards this weekend for $4.98 each and went with a pretty muted orange color and then deep purple – one of my favorite colors! My jade plant has been thriving these last few weeks and looks nice alongside the mums. My cute white metal “Fresh Cut Flowers” sign was a Picks purchase at the beginning of the summer and I love it so much!!
I hope that these pictures give you all some ideas and inspiration of your own as we embark on this season of change. As always, thanks so much for taking the time to read and connect with me. I appreciate each of you so much! Be back soon with more ❤
