Autumn is finally on its way, friends! Can you believe it?! The season of crisp leaves, pumpkin spice, gourds, and ghouls is near.

One of my favorite parts of fall is decorating my home and outdoor areas. I get giddy when I can shop pumpkin-themed décor to adorn my favorite living spaces. Who’s with me? 😊

This time on the blog, I’m sharing my go-to spots to decorate for autumn. I love to dress up spaces where I can greet and entertain people. My goal is for my guests to feel special and welcomed by being around beautiful, seasonal décor.

A Big Hello!

I love to create a focal point in my yard that draws attention. Something that's tall, colorful, and artsy is what I go for. Art Poles definitely fit the bill! All I have to do is insert the included metal stake or auger in the ground and slide the Art Pole over it. And there it is – a gorgeous outdoor accent waiting to welcome guests. I also like to mix and match a few sizes to give depth and interest to my landscape.

Spooky Entrance

Black cats, witches, and ghosts will soon be appearing in almost every area of my home! One of my favorite spots to go all-out for Halloween is on the front porch. I love to use a matching design throughout my décor. In October, I'll be using this adorable Black Cat and Pumpkins collection. I always make sure to have a garden flag, doormat, Door Décor, and address sign on my front porch. Putting all the products together creates such a wow factor.

Quick poll:

Do you like to use Halloween decorations all autumn long?


Do you like to use fall-themed décor first, then set up Halloween décor?

Autumn Florals

Although decorating my front entrance is a favorite, I also love to dress up my backyard. Sitting on my deck surrounded by beautiful fall décor makes me so happy. I usually set up two or three Art Planters together to create a focal point. The pops of color and fun designs give my backyard a little something extra, too. Some of my favorite items to fill them include mums, cockscomb, and mini pumpkins. What do you like to use in planters during the fall time?

Here's to decorating your hearts out for fall! I’ll leave you with this inspiring quote from Raquel Franco.

“And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep, and autumn was awakened.

Happy fall, y’all. 😊
