A Little About Me

A Little Information About Me

But first, a little bit about me. My name is Cindy and I’m a wife, a dog momma to two mini Dachshunds, and a lifelong New Jersey girl. I especially love to share about life in our home, easy crafts & DIYs, and share easy recipes.

You can read more about me and I’d enjoy reading about you too because I love to connect with my readers! Be sure to say hello in the comments and let me where you’re visiting from and how you enjoy fall.

Okay, so let’s begin visiting our home decorated for my favorite season and favorite time of year.

After you visit our home, please visit the other homes linked at the end of my post. Each day there will be six new homes to tour, so check back throughout the week so you will not miss any great ideas for fall.

Add a Natural Wreath to the Home

Adding a Natural Wreath to the Home

First thing let’s take a look in our kitchen to begin our natural elements fall decorating for our fall home tour. One of my favorite things to add to our home is adding a new fall wreath and also add one for the holiday season. Last year I shared a beautiful Indian corn wreath with rich jewel tones and fall colors.

Because every season I enjoy making a new wreath it’s one of the first things I add to our home. If you look under my DIY & Crafts section you will find many of these easy projects that I have shared.

I also enjoy sharing these with my readers and making wreaths to work for any decorating style. This is a simple DIY and easy way to add natural fall elements to your home decor. These pieces can easily be found in any Michaels craft store or on Amazon. By the way, these are affiliate links and what does this mean?

Next is our china cabinet. This is one of my favorite places for fall decorating. Especially using some vintage decor such as this brown transferware tureen. Filling this with natural dried gourds in soft tones is an example of one of my favorite ways to add nature. The soft colors of their natural state are a great addition for fall. Don’t you think?

I also added pitchers on a white platter filled surrounded by mini pumpkins and my all-time favorite touch of fall, acorns. Do you believe this large collection is from our own backyard? I also share a perfect way to clean and preserve these for years to come. I even share how to save bare branches with acorn caps which are perfect for autumn decor.

Also adding mason jars filled with popcorn kernels from our local grocery store is a simple nod to keeping pieces natural in our home. Adding flameless votive candles makes this a great focal point in this cabinet. Don’t you think? Glass bottles will also work well for this idea and can be filled with dried flowers or fresh flowers from the garden.

Adding natural elements such as dried pumpkin stems is great for fall as well. Every year I save my stems from real pumpkins from our front porch. One of the best ways to store these is a paper bag in a cool dark place in the home. As an example, our basement is dry and stays cool so this is a great spot to store them. By the way, I share a great idea to add these to faux pumpkins to make them look real.

Do you enjoy copper for the cooler months? I sure do and adding this to the top filled with more natural dried gourds and a metal cloche with a vine pumpkin adds a great touch.

Lastly, to keep with the natural theme is this extremely easy walnut garland. Adding lace ribbon adds a pretty touch don’t you think? So if you need a simple idea here are the steps I share.

Below is a basket filled with assorted pine cones and walnuts in their shell. Some are natural and others are painted with gold and champagne craft paint. Can you believe this basket is new? I share an easy way to add an aged look to new baskets. As well as many ideas, ways, and ideas to add to the home. Fall is especially the perfect time to add baskets throughout the house. Finally, a copper lantern with a candle adds a pretty soft glow in the evenings.

For the most part, I keep our kitchen table simple using a runner with a wood tray and footed legs. I love footed legs on anything, don’t you? This is filled with more natural elements such as walnuts left natural and assorted pinecones. Pheasant feathers inside a white pitcher are a pretty and simple fall look.

Moving into the family room the centerpiece on our coffee table is a large ironstone pitcher with grey satin ribbon filled with pheasant feathers. By the way, the links I am sharing are the exact same as those I’m sharing with you. So these are beautiful and the price can’t be beaten. The pitcher is sitting on a wooden riser that I gave an update to and takes moments. These are a must in our home and I use these all the time in many areas. I also added a wood slab with bark for texture along with a grapevine garland. I made a circle and connected it with a florist wire and its natural look is perfect.

There’s always a scented candle burning and decorating books I enjoy in our home, especially during the cooler weather. How about you?

For the most part, the first thing seen when entering this room is our bookcase. And it’s perfect for fall decorations. One of the best parts about adding natural elements and decorating this during cooler weather is the impact it has on our living room. For example, this is a great place for small pumpkins, vintage items, and small items that are special to us. Especially a baby shoe, antique books bundled with satin ribbon and you guessed it natural elements including dried artichokes, acorns, small pumpkins, pinecones, nuts, and florals.

On our hearth is a copper lantern with a candle and dried artichokes to add warmth while we are enjoying a fire. This large wooden acorn is from Home Goods and of course it’s a favorite. Again adding a natural grapevine garland adds more texture for autumn.

Next, across from the fireplace are windows that allow tons of afternoon light. We have two French chairs along with a cozy blanket a basket with an old book from Shakespeare, a pillow, and dried lavender to sit and enjoy reading one of my favorite decorating books. Every French Country home needs lavender. Don’t you agree? The smell is amazing.

In between is a beautiful French table with an antique compote from France filled with natural elements such as acorns and dried artichokes.

One of the many things I love about our home is the semi-open floor plan so decorating has to be cohesive throughout.

A Look From Our Entry Through the House

Vire From the Foyer Through the House

Across from the chairs and coffee table is our couch with plush throw and throw pillows in a soft grey toile for a cozy home feel and to grab when watching a movie. Toile is classic and never goes out of style.

Our other couch is home to our girl Peanut. Because she can’t see this keeps her safe while mommy and daddy work. We call this Princess Peanut’s Throne and keep pads on here to avoid oil from Reeses and her fur. This is the spot in our house we all snuggle together and watch the NY Mets!

This also lets you know that our homes have to work for our situations in real life and aren’t always perfect.

Lastly, is our buffet with an antique wood crate overflowing with my favorite fall foliage, dried hydrangeas with candle holders, and simple candles wrapped in French fabric. Alongside is a shutter I recently gave an updated look using a brand new furniture paint that is fantastic and can be used in many different ways. I also share tons of information about the product and the Company so give it a look. By the way, I have projects lined up waiting for me and will begin one this weekend so stay tuned!

By the way, I recently shared ideas for centerpiece ideas on a budget and there’s tons of information and ideas I think you will enjoy.

Natural elements and fall decorating ideas are also one of the easiest ways to decorate for the seasons and is budget-friendly too. Look outside your home and notice the many gifts nature and fall have to offer. Adding natural elements instantly makes for a warm and welcoming home. Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you found useful tips and inspiration to add to your home.
