Early Fall Decor

When the calendar turns over to September my desire for all things fall starts to ramp up.  Unfortunately, here in Missouri it is not unusual for fall weather to keep us waiting until well into October.  This week our temps are predicted to be on the decline and after waking up to 54 degrees this morning it seems that fall is truly in the air!  And you know what that means!  It is time to celebrate with a little fall decor!

I have never been one to go crazy with decorating for fall.  While some people move furniture regularly in an effort to keep their rooms looking fresh, I am a decor shuffler.  Simply put, I move and trade out items in my decor fairly regularly.  In doing so I typically stick with seasonless items that I can change out on a whim as the spirit moves me.  So for fall decor I usually play it safe with natural elements from my garden used in conjunction with a few neutral pumpkins and gourds that look fresh from early fall, through Halloween with some minor tweaks, and then ultimately carry me through until Thanksgiving.
