Home Tour: Fall Decorations

Oh, SWEET, SWEET, SWEET FALL, How I adore you! 
Today I am going to share with you how I decorate for fall in my home. I don't have a ton of fall decorations. I have a few things sprinkled around making my home feel warm and cozy.


Here is my buffet table redone for fall. My daughters 6th month picture with a fall theme is hanging above.

My chalkboard tray. I redo it every season, event or holiday.

 Do you see these cute lil pumpkins that my sweet kids painted for me? I love my cute little owl Scentsy warmer.

This country store lights up and I thought it was just perfect to add to my fall decor. 

About 4 years ago I cut out leaves in deferent colored felt. I took a piece of yarn and sewed them together to make a leaf garland. I hang it on my mantel every year.

My fall magazines are rolling in and of course I have to display them. Also, if they are out in the open I will remember to read them. LOL!

These weaved basket pumpkins were found at Hobby Lobby a few years ago for their after season sale. The big one had lost its stem and leaf but (one day) I will fashion a leaf, stem and curly cue, on it.

My Keurig also makes my falls feel more cozy and warm.

Speaking of my Keurig and fall... I love my morning coffee but all I add is organic cream. Because I usually eat something sweet with my coffee I don't like to add any sugar. So to make my coffee taste more like fall without adding any of those yucky sugar filled creamers. I add REAL spices. YES, thats right. Real spices... Cinnimon, nutmeg, clove and ginger. Sometimes I will add pure cocoa powder too. Try it! I think you will like it too.

 My daughter made me this wreath last year and hung it up all by herself (hence the bow being upside down). She was so proud. Love her!

When our mini pumpkins are ready to pick, Makena will go to the back yard and harvest them. We use the mini pumpkins to decorate with while we wait for the big ones to finish growing. When they are ready we will carve those.

I make my own wreaths for every season. This is my newest piece. And my spring flowers are still going nice and strong. They don't really go with the decor but soon they will be replaced with mums.

Our little scarecrow hangs out on our porch. He waits to greet visitors with his cheesy grin.

 Another edible that gets upgraded to a fall taste is my bread. This is my peach cobbler bread. I also love to make apple pie bread, spiced cider bread, pumpkin pie bread and spiced arisen bread.

I hope you enjoyed my Fall Home Tour. 
Come back tomorrow and see a collection of inspirational Fall Decorations.  
And Friday I am posting about all of my Fall Favorites. Sooo excited about this one.

I love hearing from all of my sweet readers, Leave a comment and tell us how you decorate your home. Do you make your own decorations? How do you incorporate the fall season into your food items?

See you tomorrow!

Frozen Party Inspiration Board

There are so many ideas for Disney Frozen birthday parties out there.  I tried to gather just a few of my favorites but if you would like to see all that I pinned check out my Frozen birthday party pinterest board.

This was a great entrance from Catchmyparty.com. I love the metallic turquoise ribbon and snow flakes that you can find during christmas. You can even get your kids to help cut out all those snow flakes to hang up.

This dessert table backdrop from bubblybynature.com definitely has the WOW factor.

Of course I think my FREE Disney Frozen Birthday Party printables are pretty great too. 

This is my favorite idea from twosisterscrafting.com. I love how you would just use frozen balls of water and a peeled carrot... so simple yet ADORABLE! Sign on the front probably says melted snow man water. LOL! So cute!

You can use this sign from catchmyparty.com to start all kinds of activities...

Different sized marshmallows and other edibles makes a perfect snowman activity.  From meandmyinsanity.com

Love this bag tag from etsy.com. It would be great to send this off with your little guests as a party favor.

Pin the nose on Olaf by thestylesisters.blogspot.com. This looks like an easy one to make out of cardboard.

Speaking of making things. What better way to occupy your guests time then by making princess crowns add jewel stickers and glitter glue. By pagingsupermom.com.

Ok, listen... you can't get a cuter birthday dress for the birthday girl than this! This tilled skirt is soooo precious with it's matching headband. I just love it. So simple and adorable. If you are interested go visit Pia Mia Boutique at etsy.com.

If your little girl loves the long side braid, I think this yarn hair piece would be so fun from Theresa Feller at etsy.com.

Who doesn't like glitter slime!!! This stuff is so fun and really pretty. You can use it as an activity during the party or send it howe as a party favor. From apumpkinandaprincess.com.

These Olaf noses will be eaten up before you can say "do you want to build a snowman?" catchmyparty.com

And because Olaf was really the star of the show... I really really really love how they focused on him for this Olaf's summer land party. This would be a great alternative if your childs birthday ended up being in the summer. You really don't wanted to deal with melted snow everywhere right? Find this party and more details from catchmyparty.com

Do you think you can make a whole party based on Sven the reindeer? What about the trolls? 

 Did you find any other great ideas floating around out there? Help inspire another mom and leave the details in the comments.
Did you end up doing a Frozen party for your little one? We want to hear all about it. Please leave me a comment. We would love to hear from you.
