Happy first day of fall!!

Here in Chicago it does not feel like fall, with it being almost 90 degrees yesterday!

But, since the calendar says it is suppose to be fall, I guess it is time for a fall home tour with tons of pastel touches! Plus, I have a bunch of blogger friends who are sharing their homes for this fall home tour, too.

patio decorating ideas for summer

Welcome to my humble abode! This year for fall decor, I decided to do pastels because the colors inside our home are more pastel-y than the typical bold colors of fall.

Our entryway has the pumpkins I created from this past month’s Dollar Store DIY. I changed out the ribbon for the lace I used on the mantel banner.

Not much else with our entry way has changed. I still have my amazing IKEA upholstered bench and baskets our shelving above the bench.

Our mantel got a total overhaul when I got it set up for fall!

I started by creating a fall banner using burlap, lace, and some decorative clothespins.

Then I spray painted some hot chocolate bottles and added some cotton and faux flowers in some pastel colors.

Finally, I added some pink pumpkins, white pumpkins, and some plants to the mantel.

I also found a pumpkin in the Target Dollar Spot that I added a felt flower and a pumpkin spice saying.

My custom wooden sign from my friend Alicia of The Welcoming District is perfect on our shelves as well near the pumpkin spice sign I made!

In our dining room, I added some velvet pumpkins I found that the Target Dollar Spot to our shelving, next to my gather sign and farmhouse wall decorative board I made.

Finally, on our living room table, I like to keep things simple because this is where we eat. I wanted to keep all the decor low so we could see each other across the table. I started with two lanterns I have from Yankee Candle. I added a bunch of velvet pumpkins from Target Dollar Spot, along with some glittery pumpkins I had.

kitchen utensils drawer organization

And to keep with the fall theme, I tidied up our kitchen drawers to get ready for fall/winter. I started by taking all the summer stuff like grilling and moving it toward the back of the drawers. I moved our winter stuff, like crock pots and baking items toward the front. This helps get me ready for fall cooking!
