Last week, I told you that I was keeping my fall decor simple. I still am, but moved some things around, like the fall printable I originally had in my kitchen. You can find it here: Download Free fall printable.

I also ended up buying a basket. I loved it and could not pass it up. I shopped the house to find a few more items to add some fall texture and color around.

Since posting this tour, I have painted this sideboard. It is now blue and looks amazing.  You can find it here: Blue Painted Sideboard.

Here in my foyer is where I placed the new basket. It came in two sizes. I bought the largest at my local Kirkland’s.

I filled it with fake autumn leaves I had from previous years. I looked for it on their website so I could link it here, but I could not find it. If you like it to find one, it was right in the front of the store in a floor display.

Easy ways to decorate a home for fall. Small pumpkins on a tray of Navy Beans.

I removed these little raffia pumpkins from a potpourri mix I had that no longer had a scent.

Out to the trash that went, but I kept the pumpkins. To add some texture, I went to my pantry and grabbed a bag of Navy Beans and then poured them into the tray before placing the pumpkins on top.

My other small purchase was 3 Tiger Baby pumpkins at the supermarket that I added  to the mantel. More about the mantel decor in this post:

Fall home decor ideas for mantels

I love the orange stripes. I didn’t paint them, it is how they grow. When adding decorative accessories, adding odd numbers looks more pleasing to the eye- 3 is the magic number… not always, but you can never go wrong using 3 of anything in decorating.

Inexpensive Fall Decorating ideas using pinecones and items around your home.

Moving on… pinecones are something I have in abundance since our property is framed with pine trees. I placed some on a white oval plate and put them on the side table. These are on the small side and came down when Hurricane Irma blew through.

Note: If the pinecones you find are closed, have a lot of sap on them, or have bugs in them, you should bake them first.

Line a baking sheet with foil, place the pinecones on and place in a 200 degree oven for 30 minutes. This will kill any bugs and lessen the sap.

White decor for fall

I liked them displayed on the table, but then I decided to move the plate to the coffee table.

The black & white throw is actually a very large two patterned shawl I bought at TJ Maxx a few years ago. It is very soft, perfect for snuggling.

All the accessories on this table I have had for years, except the WELCOME tray. My sister gave me that. I always like to display my collection of doorknobs in the fall.

I usually place them in a wire basket, but I can’t find it. I will keep searching. One of these days I will show you my attic where I keep all my decorative accessories that are not in use.

I made the initialed coasters a few years ago. We use them all the time.  They are sort of a “semi-DIY” and very easy to make. You can see just how easy in this post: Handmade Hostess Gift

Moving out to the deck. This is where you will find me once the weather begins to feel fall-like.

Ways to use raffia in home decor

I made a few raffia tassels to add a little chic to the planters. They are easy to make. I will write a post on how I made them next week.

I also added two to the pumkins. The cut tree trunk I use as a table. I got it from a local nursery for ten dollars.

They even delivered it right to my house. :-) It is very heavy.  I placed it on a tri-wheel dolly so I can easily move it around.

No carving pumpkin decorating ideas. Add a raffia tassel or two.

I know white and light green pumpkins are the trend now, but classic orange pumpkins are one of my favorite things.  For my eyes, nothing says fall more.

Fall home decorating ideas used outside on a lake side deck

I bought the Lantana to place in one of the big planters that line my deck. I will keep it here until the weather really becomes fall-like.

They only had orange, but next spring I was told they will carry many other colors.  It is new to me, are you familiar with it? Does it come back every year in your planters or garden?

Do you plant fall flowers?  I have some pansies I plan to plant soon, too. They will last all winter and spring here.

  1. Love your “fall”. Lantana comes in a variegated type also. I love the yellow red orange variety. Mine is an annual here in Illinois.

  2. We live in Arizona and lantana is very popular here and comes in many colors. Some varieties grow low to the ground and need to be cut back or they become “leggy”. Other grow into amazing bushes.

  3. I plant lantana every year. Love it. I’m in a colder zone so lantana is an annual for me. It comes in a variety of colors. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your style and blog. I’ve been following you for several years. I think we could be friends. :)

  4. If you have deer the pansies will be their dessert. I have to spray it to keep them away from my containers.
    Lantana is great and the deer haven’t eaten mine. Some colors are more hardy than others. I have it planted in the garden and trim it back in the winter. Love your fall look!

  5. Lantana is wonderful and it does come back. I’ve had it come back in planters and in the ground. You can just cut it back after it dies. I’ve seen some varieties grow to look like bushes after some time!
