Simple Fall Decor

Simple Fall Decor

There was a time in my life when I would decorate for fall and the house would look like a tree vomited its leaves all over my living room. In my enthusiasm I would over-decorate and have to go back and remove excess branches, candles and wooden pumpkin plaques.

More recently I have taken a simpler approach to seasonal decorating. This could be due to my tastes changing or laziness. Honestly it is probably both. Either way, I am happy with my new, minimalist decorating approach. It is simple, fast, inexpensive and “leaves” the house clutter-free and ready to welcome the season.

    I love the bowl of pumpkins! Next year is going to be simple for me. Yep, a tree threw up in my house and I am not liking it.

      Thanks! Simpler decorations stand out a little more to me and they are less work! Win Win!
