Cozy Fall Home


Happy Fall y'all! Ok, it may be like 80 out still but it is September so its officially fall in my world! I love love love love this season. So to celebrate the beginning of September I wanted to share my favorite ways to start transitioning your home for this season! Im not a big fan of tons of seasonal or holiday decor cluttering my space but I do love to add touches here and there and make some adjustments to my nest to reflect each season. Home is our very favorite place to be. My passion for creating a comfy cozy happy home runs deep. So sharing some of my cozy fall home details today is my favorite!

(please ignore my white wreath hanger...I have a black one around here somewhere but it has yet to be located ;-)

First things first! And thats updating your front porch. I love an inviting entry. Ive done the layers on layers of decor before and I found that my personal style is just much more simple. Im waiting a couple more weeks to pop some yellow mums in my pots so they last a bit longer. But I've already hung my new wreath. This year Im really feeling mustard yellow. Like way more than any other year. Im not exactly sure why because I love the oranges and deep reds too.


My mom was about to throw out the grapevine wreath that was undecorated and offered it to me so I snagged that up for a fun little project. After a quick trip to Hobby Lobby with my partner in crime we got it all decorated and ready to hang!



Spending evenings by our outdoor fireplace is our FAVORITE thing to do in the fall. Sometimes, just Tom and I after the kids go to bed will enjoy a low key fire, other times we crank up a fire and just play outside as a family, and of course the kids favorite is to roast marshmallows and invite all the neighbors over too. We see a lot of action out on our back patio this time of year! Its so cozy and fun! So this year I decided to add this "c" to our outdoor fireplace that I had previously used in my house. Again, I ran to Hobby Lobby for some fall accents to add to the "c" and then I hung it up between the stones! The pots on the sides of the fireplace will also get yellow mums here in a couple weeks as well!


To add a little fall through the home I always switch seasonally my wall flower scents and hand soaps from Bath & Body Works. I LOVE to indulge in candles in the fall from Bath & Body Works too. They have some of my FAVORITE scents! My favorite scent is Marshmallow Fireside..but I'm also loving Autumn, Flannel, Sweater Weather, and Leaves this year as well! As I have mentioned in the years past, Woodwick's Fireside is my ultimate favorite candle ever though!


Other small details through my home- like just adding some left over billy balls to my mantel & updating my kitchen chalkboard are some of the easiest places to make a seasonal statement!


Sometimes my chalkboard is funny and sometimes its meant to be an encouragement...but no matter what, I love changing it seasonally (sometimes twice a season!) For now I'm easing into the season with just the splash of mustard yellow on a seasonal neutral quote. 


Finally you gotta get in the kitchen! Im an apple girl through and through. My entire life, every September, I would go apple picking with my family, and now we have carried the tradition on with our own family. I literally think I've only ever missed maybe like 2 years in my life that I can think of! The apples, the cider, the apple cider donuts...omgosh. Its the BEST family outting....but even better that its a family tradition that lasts once home. Bring on the baking! 


Ok give me a break. I didn't homemake this particular one. I'm not proud of that but until we go pick apples I'm sticking to my Schwan man pie ;-)
Apple pie is my absolute favorite pie other than lemon meringue. On baking days who even needs a candle when you are making pies and crisps, or cooked apples!?! YUM! Now if walking into a home that smells of freshly baked apples doesn't make you love fall and feel cozy then I don't know what will! 
I'll just leave you all with this today...
