I am already itching to decorate for Fall!!
The weather feels more like Fall right now, and I've been burning fall scents & watching so many movies set in autumn.

When do all of you decorate? Do you think it's too soon to do next week?
It's really interesting to read how you decorate for fall, or autumn as we call it. We don't do anything like that here in Australia. We don't do Halloween either, although it is just starting to become a little bit of a 'thing' in some places. I just wait until December 1st to put up our Christmas decorations. What kind of things do you decorate with for fall?

We put out fall leaves, I do a mix of real & artificial, scarecrows, pinecones, crows, acorns, pumpkins, gourds, apples, hay bales, cornstalks, things like that =]

Here in New England it was freezing all weekend and finally warmed up on Monday. And supposed to be 90 by the end of the week!

I do love my fall decorations too...I always do leaves, pumpkins and corn stalks as well..

We do all of the above as well, plus we go full bore decorating outside as well for all the Trick-Or-Treaters! I attached a photo of my house; (this picture is a little dated because I have a lot more outside decorations and fog machines set up now...



I love the Fall and Halloween!!!

I haven't been thinking about decorating as much for Halloween but I have been getting the itch lately to pick up some things lol, I went to one of the local country stores in one of the towns by me and noticed they had some fall scented candles out already, almost got them too

I usually start the first week of September...right after Labor Day. I don't like to start too late because that means it's only up for a short while before Christmas makes it's way to my door!
I say, when you get that Fall feeling...go for it!
Pottery Barn sneak peek at Fall online...should be around June 27th!
