Fall Party!!

Kimba at A Soft Place to Land is having a fall party.

I know Fall started like a month ago, but I finally got around to getting some pumpkins, and cute little fall things. I am not a big Halloween person, and I prefer summer to any other season. But I decided since this is my first Fall with my hubby that I would fix up the house. I only did a couple things, but I wanted so bad to be a part of the party!!

This is the island that I change monthly what I want in the middle. This is a bad picture. I stole this casserole dish from my aunt, and she has not asked for it back. It has been there with the top on it for a few weeks. Tonight I filled it with Michael's crafts store pumpkins that are half off!!




This is the centerpiece to my dining room. I have had those candles on my dining room since I got it. We never eat there, but I try to have something there. Good thing you did not see the rest of the table, because it has junk on it.



I know this is nothing spectacular, but its a start!!! I will take any tips or suggestions!!

I also bought a Fall flag for the porch! But its dark, and I don't want to take a picture, because Dancing with the Stars is on.

Well done. I like the pumpkins in the bowl best, simple and autumny. I don't decorate for holidays and stuff. (b/c I am too lazy) I think it looks really nice, but it's a lot of effort (for lazy me) and just when I get attached to it and it's time to take it down and put up stuff for another holiday/season. So I just don't except for Christmas.

I'm more of a fall girl too instead of halloween. This is my favorite season, and I like the pumpkins and gourds a lot. Jackie

I think those are very pretty fall decorations. I really like the casserole dish filled with pumpkins. Elegant! :)

I think it looks great! I usually remember right before a holiday or season is over to put out the decorations :-( Mainly because I'm sure they will get ruined and I will not have them the next year. I do love Christmas and we usually decorate the day after Thanksgiving!
