Welcome, fall. I wrote you a poem:
Your leaves are lovely, dear
But if you could be chilly enough for me to wear a sweater without heat stroke
YEAH, THAT’D BE GREAT.
There was a time in life when I gave up on this idea of fall decorating. Everything I tried just felt fake and contrived. Like a hay rack ride was happening on my front porch…BUT IT WASN’T.
This year, I got in touch with my inner Waldorf teacher, (I really feel like I had one inside me all this time) and finally got into the spirit. I decorated for fall by bringing just a little bit of nature indoors. The girls loved it and we had so much fun doing it together.
My favorite is the leaf garland, made from leaves we gathered on a nature walk and dipped in melted beeswax. We got the idea from our Wild and Free bundle this month.
The exception to my nature-oriented embellishments being the twinkle lights on the ladder and the lighted garland with the faux leaves hot-glued to it.
You must understand this was after my annual You’ve Got Mail viewing when I had a week where I wanted to turn my house into The Shop Around the Corner or alternatively, a 90’s coffee shop. I know you guys totally get this.
