A Little Fall Decorating

I did most of my decorating for fall outside, and just a tiny little bit inside.  I am sharing today, mostly for my memory.  I love to look back each year to see what I did.  

I thought I would try something new this year with the fun color scheme of purple, orange, and lime.  This is where I started...and finished.  I filled 2 canisters with candy, and then didn't know what to put in the large one.  On a trip to HL I saw these Christmas ornaments and thought they would be perfect.

Then, I opened my fall bins and saw that I had nothing else in these colors and didn't really feel like buying anything.  So, these cute little canisters have been the centerpiece on my table, then moved to the island because I really don't know what to do with them when all I really have is fall stuff, or a few Halloween things in orange and black.  They don't really match anything!!

But, they are cute!

A little scarecrow on the front door.

I love her little bell that rings when you open the door.

My entry table is simple.  I just changed out my red books and put some brown ones out, and got this free printable from the blog Dear Lillie.

Love it.

The guest bath got some fall picks {to hide the cord} and some soap and a candle.  It doesn't get much easier that that.

And just for fun, a little pumpkin shampoo and soap in the shower!

My front door decor is hanging in there.  I have had this for years, and did a little spruce up last year.

The sofa table gets several black frames filled with pictures of my favorite trick or treaters.

I made this fun centerpiece for our Halloween lunch next week.  I am trying to do some of the cute things I pinned on Pinterest.

And, lastly I put out my rooster plates and cream and brown pumpkins for the kitchen hutch.  My kitchen has a lot of red in it and it is hard to add the colors of fall.  I think my next project will be to make the color scheme in my kitchen a little more neutral ~ 

A perfect little project for the winter!

Oh wow, I think you did a ton. I didn't do hardly anything, just a couple of tiny things in the kitchen and dining table. I love that you've done so much through out the whole house. Everything looks fabulous. Don't forget your apothecary jars are perfect to add to our Cloche Party on Nov. 1st. Hugs, Marty

Oh my goodness, Sue! Your home looks lovely with these tasteful accents. I ADORE the idea of framing the grandkidlet's Halloween photos for display!!!!! Why didn't I ever think of that? I have one on my computer screen but putting them out where others could enjoy them is such a neat touch. Next year, for sure!!

Its nice to be back to blogging. I feel like I've missed soooo much!

Wow! What great touches. I just love the colors in the large apothecary jars, although, my family would never leave the candy alone! The layered treat centerpiece is amazing! Wish I'd seen that sooner. Will remember for next year ;o) Found your blog via Savvy Seasons, and look forward to perusing your past posts. Thanks for sharing, and Happy Halloween!

The images of the trick or treaters all clustered together is brilliant. The jars of purple and lime stuff are just plain fun. The layer candy in the hurricane is stunning. I am inspired by that!
