Question of the Day

QOTD October 2

Postby DeniseM » Oct 2nd, '14, 9:35 am

Do you decorate for the fall? Change up your home decor with the changing of the seasons?
I do not right now. It is fun and looks so pretty but I am just barely keeping up with my regular chores and haven't done it the past several years. Although I do have some pretty mums on my porch.

Not really. I put a Happy Halloween on the front door and buy a couple of pumpkins, then switch the door thing to a Happy Thanksgiving one come November. I did more when the kids were little. Now, I'm with you, Denise. I am just trying to keep up with the regular stuff.

Makes me a bit sad, because Fall is my favorite. But, I just...can't. :-\

Ditto here Denise but I really want to do Fall again - I'm making an effort this weekend to get SOMETHING out for fall. I miss decorating for the seasons

I put out a handful of items-mostly candles and some cute fall decorative plates I have on a plate rack. Otherwise, no. To busy with boys' fall extracurriculars. I am good with that though! Making memories! ;)

We do Halloween up big time and then some for Thanksgiving. But nothing for "fall" per se. May do more for Turkey day this year if we host... ;)

i usually create a fall wreath for the door or reuse ones from previous years, and hang a bunting banner that hangs under a shelf in our entrance. the shelf also holds a chalkboard canvas that i usually write/draw a new sentiment on for each season/holiday

other then that...i don't do the whole house...i'll decorate the table for thanksgiving on thanksgiving...
so unless not raking my yard and having a gorgeous yellow and orange hued carpet of leaves across our front and back lawns counts....that's as decorative as i get for fall!

We all sound the same. But with our daughter being little, we do get into it more. I do love Fall. Once we have garage sale, we'll start getting things out. We try to add to Halloween decor each year, but we may just keep what we have. I would love one of those cemeteries in the front yard. LOL Nothing too creepy, but just kind of cool, you know.

I don't do too much. Outside I change our door mat & wreath, and add mums & pumpkins to the porch. Inside I switch some pillows on the sofa, and change up my kitchen table arrangement. This is my favorite thing to change seasonally because it adds a big impact without much work. :)

I should. Really, I should. The kids would love it for sure. I used to do a little for Halloween and the fall, but I just let it go.

I do decorate for fall, not too much but some candles and table runners....a few pumpkins here and there. I love fall so much and I want it to really feel like it in my home!
