Decorating for Fall

I am trying to decide when to decorate for fall this year. Typically, I wait until after Labor Day, so I do it the second week of September, but with the temps being in the 70's at times here, it's getting me in the mood!

When do all of you decorate? Do you think it's too soon to do next week?

I think I may start tomorrow - I haven't really seen anyone around here doing it yet, but if I could at least get the inside done, I would be happy. I don't think I am off again until Friday, once I go back tomorrow night, so that would give me a good start!

I want fall so bad but it's hard to think about fall when the temps are still in the 90's. I'm ready.

I don't have a whole lot to put out. Some garland for above my kitchen cabinets, a centerpiece for my table, placemats, some grapevine pumpkins, and a wreath for my front door. I may look for a few more things this year.

Frostyman: I know what you mean! We're not quite that bad here anymore, but we still hit 85F the other day and that was too hot for me, for this time of the year. I am loving today - only the high 70's.

I have a good bit - I have a few things that are just Halloween or Thanksgiving themed, but most of mine are fall themed. I love country decor and my house is decorated like that all year around.

I love going to the craft fairs in the fall and get new stuff at each one every year. I know I will be picking stuff up for fall and Christmas again this year. (Hence the baskets - haha!)

I love going to craft fairs too but I always end up buying Christmas stuff and nothing else.
