I have to tell you I don’t go all out for fall decorating. And this year the thought of plowing through the stuff in my garage to get to the pull-down steps to the attic to get the fall stuff is giving me heart palpitations. But I will show you how to transition from summer to fall with things I had in the house.
I started putting the summer shells away, you can see how I summerized my house for the summer here and then decided it was time to think fall. Right now it is hard to do that in Florida and other places too. I know when I lived in New York there would be warm days in September and who is thinking of getting out the pumpkins and apple cider when the leaves haven’t quite started to turn color.
But I needed a change and just got a few things out that I didn’t put up in the attic. I have had the red, wooden apples and the rattan ones for years. The red, wooden ones ended up in a square glass vase, which is in the entry way. I have a very small entry way but it is large enough to hold the console table.
I kept the some of the same table setting in the dining room but changed the napkins to plain amber ones . I have matching placemats that I may or may not pull out at some point. Adding a glass pumpkin to the silver tray blends with the other glass vases in it. And got out my fall plates, which I love.
The mantel is bare of anything to do with fall. It may or may not happen. The coffee table has a trayful of the rattan apples, pears, and balls.
I took a fall inspired postcard and put it in my favorite white frame. Added some planters in subdued fall colors.
For the kitchen, I switched out the summer placemats and napkins with burlap placemats and matching napkins I made a few years ago. I love the round tray I make from a wood round. I find I am always switching things around on it. There were only the large mums at the market. It must be too early to have fresh fall like flowers. I stuck some white lantana to fill out the arrangement.
You don’t need to go crazy and wild to go from summer to fall. A few changes to start getting in the mood is all it takes on how to transition from summer to fall. Happy Fall Y’all.
