Bits of Fall Around the House

Thanks so much for your kind words on yesterday's post...ya'll are really too good to me. Especially overlooking my frizzball vacation hair! Now you see why hats are my friend in the Summer months.

Today we're going from Island Style to touches of Fall...how's that for blogger ADD? I love Fall, but I always have a hard time saying goodbye to Summer. I tend to hold on a little longer to the casual style, and a little tighter to the lazy days...wearing my flip-flops until the last possible second, and denying the pumpkin spice lattes swirling around me.

But eventually I get there, and once I pull on the boots and scarves, it's Fall-time! So when Marty at A Stroll Through Life asked me to participate in her Fall Home Tours, I hesitated for a second, then jumped at the chance to usher in Fall. The allure of boots and lattes was just too strong!

I don't change up too much around the house, and save the major holiday decorating for Christmas (see our previous Christmas Home Tours here), but I do like to swap out pillows and throws, and bring in Fall foliage and flowers.

As soon as the temps drop, it becomes all about the comfort food around here, too. I've already had requests for my easy 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Bread, and Crack Bark. The kids love making these caramel-drizzled apples...I standby with extra napkins. And hope for leftovers.

I started playing with a classic equestrian theme for this year's table...I love the fresh green and woven texture combo. Quite the opposite of last year's glam table of hot pink and gold!

I attended a blogger event this Summer hosted by Home Depot (see what I packed & wore here), and these were our name tags. So clever, right?! Too bad I'll be the only one at the table with a place card. ;)

I cut a hole in the top of my DIY Studded Craft Pumpkin (from my previous Hitchcock-Inspired Mantel), and set a vase of flowers in it for a fun and festive centerpiece idea.

  6. Yay pumpkins! The julep cup and roses says Kentucky Derby to me. We go all out up here, I have a sign on the door, a cinnamon wreath, fall candles, leaf garlands, signs, pillows etc. The difference is probably bc we arent big xmas ppl, we live in a farm town where the harvest is much more important than christmas and we arent christian. Go crazy for xmas (I cant wait to see it!) while we freak out for fall!!!! Swing on by for the Harvest Festival or Apple Days if youre ever nearby!!!

    1. Apple Days and a Harvest Festival sound amazing...so lucky to live in an area with all those festivities!!!

  8. Beautiful, Cassie. Love that pumpkin with the orange flowers. Yes. . still crazy hot over here and very much trying to hold on to the summer. Kids still want to swim after school!

  9. Cassie,
    I love how you added small touches around the house for fall without having it look overdone. BTW still in love with your kitchen backsplash.

  12. Loving the nightstands, however the firewall at work blocked it as being something notorious. Could you please let me know where you got them; they match my new closet to perfection.
    Would love to get into fall mode, but 102 degrees in San Diego isn't conducive to boots and PSL's!

  13. I'm with you with wanting to put off fall for a little bit... this summer went by entirely too fast!! However, I now want your 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake immediately! So maybe I am caving to the fall temptations!

    1. You could totally eat that cake by the pool! ;)

  14. Love all your fun touches, but seriously you could put a pile of hay in front of that tile and it would look fabulous! :) Haha! No pumpkins or pinecones over here, but I've just been inspired and think caramel apples should make a debut!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm pretty sure I would just sleep in the kitchen so I could stare at it's beauty as I drift off if I lived at your house... gorgeous tour, Cassie!

  16. I'm a fan of the two ingredient pumpkin dessert but I've always made it as muffins. I'll try your bunt cake version. My trick is to use a spice cake mix (it's even better that way!) or add pumpkin pie spice mix (you can find it in buik spices in some stores or make up a batch using a recipe from the internet). YUM! I also like to use the spice mix in pumpkin smoothies; just a little over 1/2 cup frozen pumpkin puree, milk (I always use almond milk in our lactose intolerant house), spice mix and sweeten to taste. Blend and enjoy. It's like liquid pumpkin pie for us pumpkin lovers ....
    Also loved your pumpkin vase ...

  17. Your kitchen is adorable, I'm drooling all over that beautiful tile... and apples! Pretty bits of fall. ;)

  18. I haven't read through the comments, so perhaps someone already mentioned this. Zulily has had several Christmas sales with unfinished wooden name ornaments. Pehaps you can add the other names that way?!

  19. Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor from drooling over that backsplash tile - it's so gorgeous! I loved your tour - you are a styling maven!!

  20. Your home is beautiful! Every time I visit I swoon over your gorgeous kitchen tile.

  21. Once I finally stopped staring at your backsplash I could appreciate all your fall touches! Oh man that tile! And those apples look delish- can't wait to try that sauce!

  22. So so pretty. I'm always feeling at home with your gorgeous style. And I've been obsessed with that Aztec throw.

  25. Your house looks gorgeous for the lovely Fall season. You have done everything with such perfection and just enough to transcend smoothly into Autumn in such an elegant way, without overdoing it with the orange or pumpkins. Lovely kitchen vignette in the tray.
