Fall officially arrives on September 23rd, but I am getting ready by having both my indoor and outdoor fall decor done. I still haven't transitioned my closet over yet. I will wait till the weather is a lot cooler before I put the warm weather clothes away.
Today I want to share some of my indoor fall decor and next week I'll show my outside fall decor. As always, the first item to be transitioned over is my metal tier tray which sits in the center of my dining room table. I change the decor of this tray out for every season and holiday. They are so much fun.
I bought all the ceramic pumpkins, hay bales, and the orange sign from the Dollar Store. Everything else I had already in my stash.
One thing I noticed when looking at other people's trays on Instagram is that I use a lot of florals in mine in comparison to other people's trays. I don't know if that's right or wrong as I don't think there are any rules to decorating tiered trays. I just know that after I put all my items in my tray, I don't like seeing "Holes" and so I fill those holes with florals.
I always include a coffee mug in my trays. This leaf print one is from the Dollar Store.
Faux birds are a favorite decorating accent of mine too. Do you see one n the coffee mug?
My dining room has a plate rail going all the way around the room. I changed out all the plates to fall ones. I then did a fall vignette on all the other surfaces in the room: the two dining hutches and the piano.
I changed out the peachy-pink glass ware I had in the dining room hutch for spring/summer and replaced them with fall china.
I also changed the place mats from the blue & white ones I had on the table all summer, to these natural round ones. I thought the rough texture was perfect for fall.
The "Grateful, Thankful, Blessed" sign is up on the wall most of the year, but it seems to be especially appropriate for fall/Thanksgiving.
I did put a little fall decor in the rest of my home, but I will only share a few pictures as some of the rooms are very dated and haven't been renovated yet. This is my entry table that greets guests when they first enter my home. The "Hello" basket and galvanized pitcher and rooster are there most of the year. I just added some fall garland to the table.
On the metal accent tray also in that room, I changed out the spring floral and added a couple of fall stems.
In the upstairs bedrooms I simply switched out the spring floral arrangement for a fall one on the nightstands.
What about you? Have you decorated your house for fall yet? I'd love to hear from you!

You decorate your house so well and I like that tray - each tier so perfect for autumn! :)ReplyDelete
We don't really decorate our house other than at Christmas time, but as I knew we would be in this house for Christmas I went crazy at the sales buying a lot of Christmas things, so I'm so looking forward to decorating when December rolls around - we have so many more rooms to decorate, haha!
Hope that you are having a lovely weekend :)
Away From Blue
Thanks Mica! From everything I hear from my readers, holiday and seasonal decor (other than Christmas) seems to be an American thing.Delete
CHARMING! You inspire me to start my fall decorating!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Glad to hear that!Delete
I love to see the fall decorations, they are very beautiful. I also find the tray full of flowers prettier, fuller. KissesReplyDelete
Thanks Ana! I'm glad you like the flowers in the tray.Delete
Oh my goodness! You go all-out but they're such simple changes (except maybe the tiered metal tray centerpiece) and make a big change. I do nothing. Nada. Not one thing. Right now I'm feeling a little bit inspired to do something better as my dining table centerpiece, though. I think a lot of the colors in my house are already autumn-ish, so maybe I'm always decorated for the fall and just don't change it up for spring or summer :/ I saw some cute outdoor pillows at Wal-Mart that had an autumn theme. Maybe I'll pick up a few of those and change out the beachy ones on my front porch. I never really thought about those looking out of place for fall and winter until now. Thank you for the gorgeous inspiration and your dining room is beautiful!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. Sometimes, I wonder why I even do it at all since I rarely have company over anymore. But then, I realize how important it is to the kids when they come to visit, and it lifts my spirits too!Delete
Oh Amy,please stop by my house and make it Fall appropriate! Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Awww, I wish I could! I'd love to see your neck of the woods!Delete
I just started decorating my home for fall also! I am gathering some inspiration from youReplyDelete
Thanks so much Michelle!Delete
So sweet....a touch of Fall every where. It goes to say that less is more and your Fall touches really leave a beautiful lasting impression throughout your home.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. I've been working so hard at simplifying my home. Most people say my house is "Over the top" so I'm surprised to see someone describe it as "less is more", it is so refreshing to hear.Delete
I love that tiered tray!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!Delete
Thank you so much for sharing at our Fall Party; Pinned.Delete
The tier looks nice for fall! Thanks so much for linking up at #AThemedLinkup 1. Shared.ReplyDelete
I love that little hay accent you added. I need to find some of that! I also love the little ceramic pumpkins, I've recently added more to my own home decor. Love them. Thanks for linking up with us at #OMHGWWReplyDelete
Thank you! I found the hay at the dollar store in the craft section.Delete
This looks so inviting, Amy. I love you China pumpkins especially. No autumn decor here, I'm pretending it's still summer!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I love the china pumpkins too. It is still summer! Fall doesn't begin til the 23rd. We have a few more days! :)Delete
Somehow I missed this post, thanks for linking it from your fall garden post. Love your fall decorations. The tiered tray is so pretty.ReplyDelete
I haven't started decorating yet, but did sort out summer clothes when we had a fall-ish weekend and the closet was a mess and needed straighened.
My daughter wants to get a few fall things out today, and it's a rainy day so it's perfect timimg!
That's ok, you found it eventually. If it's raining, it is a good day to decorate!Delete
Everything looks so beautiful! The wheat dishes remind me of some my Gram had...sure miss visiting her. Thanks so much for sharing your decor on Farm Fresh Tuesdays, Amy! Be sure to stop by this week and share you fall posts and enter our giveaway!ReplyDelete
The dishes are probably the same your Gram had. They were a very popular pattern back in the day. I got lucky and got a whole box of these wheat dishes for only $10.00. Thanks, I'll be sure to drop by.Delete
Thanks so much Marilyn.ReplyDelete
