Decorating For Fall

As I said earlier this week, most of the unpacking into the new home is done!
Now I can get to really decorating for the seasons and holidays.

You may remember my mantle decor at our previous house.  The mantle there was like no other, making it difficult to decorate.  
Now, in our new home, I am having so much fun with 
my new spaces to decorate for Fall!
Of course, with the move I haven't had time to make or buy any new 
Fall decor but that's okay.  
I buy thriftly and find what I love and just use it differently. 
Such as the Autumn banner I made last year. 
It fits across the new fireplace perfectly!
The wall color of this house are perfect for Fall! 
A nice warm beige just makes the Fall colors jump out 
without being "In Yer Face"


I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be able to figure out how to decorate the shelf over the TV.  I wanted to be sure it looked good, front and back. 
I think I found the right combination of decor to pull it off.
Living room side.


And dining room side.




Of course I had to make sure that, just because my china hutch now sits in a cubby in the dining room, it doesn't get neglected.
(Squeee!  All of the window treatments have been hung in the dining room!)
Nor could I leave the buffet unadorned.

I had SOOOO much fun setting up our new home for Fall!  
Mr. B's parents are visiting this weekend for Canadian Thanksgiving dinner and I cannot wait to show off our pretty new house. 
I have also, of course, set a pretty table for the holiday so, 
be sure to come back by to see that too.


See you soon!

  24. Fall is my favorite time of year, but I don't do a lot of seasonal decorating- just too lazy. All of yours looks wonderful. I love the banner, and your 2-sided shelf area looks great- a tricky spot for sure, but you pulled it off.
