Fall Nesting Week is back at The Inspired Room! Last year, Melissa
forced persuaded me to get with it and decorate for Fall during her Fall Nesting. It was my first attempt at any seasonal decorating other than Christmas. I'm still not a great decorator, but I am having fun with trying to decorate for the seasons (doing it as cheaply as I can is part of the fun!). So this year, I prepared even though the temp outside is in the 90's and the sun is shining bright. My family and friends that live around here have mentioned to me that it is in fact, summer according to the calendar and our weather. Not according to Melissa, I say!
Come on in and take a look around! The potpourri is simmering on the stove (recipe from Blessed).
And you might as well grab a Pumpkin Blueberry Muffin for a snack...
or maybe some Pumpkin Pudding!
Here's part of the living room when I decorated it for Spring/Summer...
and here's how I changed it a little for Fall.
Added some dark thrift store pillows & throw to the other couch.
I like to add fresh rosemary since we have a huge bush of it in the front yard! And yes, that's a pic of my chubby babe who turned 10 last month - sigh.
Gotta have some apples around!
I like to mix the orange with crisp white.
My centerpiece is still a work in progress. I was thrown off because the grocery store does not have pumpkins yet - you know, because it's *ahem* summer here.
It's about time I put out a little chocolate display! Let's pretend like I didn't write that sign in 3 seconds and that my "v" and "r" don't look exactly alike. :) While we're at it, let's pretend that those same chocolates will still be here next month.
Last year, I enjoyed the Fall fun so much that I hosted a Pumpkin Potpourri Week! It was such a hit that I will be having another Fall-themed week at the end of this month. It will feature Fall fruits - like pumpkin (yup - has seeds so it is a fruit!), apples, and either cranberries or pears. I'm still working out the details, but come back for the fun!
And if you enjoyed your goodies, then come by tomorrow (Friday) for Dessert Friday! I'll be sharing a recipe and letting you link up your yummy dessert posts!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope I've inspired you to try a little Fall decorating if you haven't already!
You must head over to The Inspired Room and look at all the Fall posts linked up - you will definitely get a Fall feeling!
Have a fabulous Fall day!
