Fall Fever

Fall is in the air it seems... everywhere but southern California! This time of year is always hard because everywhere you look are pumpkins, multi-colored leaves, cozy sweaters and yummy soups. Meanwhile, here in San Diego, it's 85 degrees and still feeling like the middle of summer. It's not exactly the most inspirational weather for fall decorating.

Even in the midst of a late summer heat wave and some of the muggiest weather I've felt in a long time, I can't ignore all the amazing autumn-inspired decorating that I've seen lately. Here are some fantastic ideas that I fell for on Pinterest.

Love this antique wheelbarrow and the writing on the pumpkin. I think they used vinyl decals but I'm sure you could use paint or markers for a similar look.

Leave it to PB to do an over-the-top fall/halloween porch! I really love the grapevine pumpkins on this doorstep. The lanterns would be fabulous at night!

The pumpkins in the crates are a great idea for staggering different sized pumpkins without using the traditional stacking or topiary-style methods. I also love the monogram on the door. In case you can't tell, that's a ginormous embroidery hoop - so creative!

These pumpkins and gourds wrapped in different shades of yarn are one of my favorite fall-inspired ideas that I've seen lately. I love that they are fall-ish but don't scream Halloween. I might have to give this one a try!

What's inspiring you to get ready for fall?

  1. Great choice of decorations! Hopefully, you'll get some Fall-like weather soon! Would love if you'd join our Countdown to Fall link party! Hope to see you there! Happy Friday! :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by! It's almost 100 today so we're not quite there but maybe by Halloween?!

  2. Love these. That monogram door hanging is great, I may try and make one. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. You should check out Life As A Thrifter - her blog is super cute and filled with great ideas like the monogram!

  3. I can completely sympathize with warm weather not being very inspiring for fall decorating. I decorated our home last weekend for fall but felt like such a poser, ushering the kids through the fall leaf decorated dining room to go play outside in the pool, lol.

    1. Exactly! It was 95 yesterday! That just doesn't feel like fall. Thanks for visiting :)
