Summer is winding down (insert frowny face) here on Pearl Street. The nights are getting cooler and the mornings are a bittersweet reminder that summer can’t last forever. Fall will be here before we know it.
I usually wait until October to do my fall decorating (holding onto summer as long as possible), but this year I am joining ten other wonderful bloggers for a Festive Fall Home Tour, hosted by Debbie Stolle from Chatham Hill on the Lake and Karen Kedzuch from Dragon Flys and Lily Pads . They have inspired me to get it done a little early this year!
Welcome to day three of the Festive Fall Home Tour 2016 and fall on Pearl Street! If you missed day one and two, you can see all eleven of us at the links at the end of this post!
Summer may be my favorite season, but fall is my favorite season to decorate my home for. I love the vibrant colors of fall, the reds, yellows, and oranges. I am really loving all the neutral fall decor I have been seeing (and pinning), but I just can’t seem to get away from LOTS of color!!
First is my living room. We don’t spend a lot of time in here since building the family room, but I couldn’t neglect it this season.
It’s a great room to curl up in and enjoy a good book with the fall sun coming in the windows.
Our dining room is actually the first room you see when you come in our side door, so I went all out with the mantle and table!
I got this fall printable from Ann Drake over at Life…On Sutton Place, isn’t it cute?!
This fall banner was an easy project, mostly, and I will have a post on how I did it up on the blog very soon.
Our dining room has played host to many festivities over the years, and more recently we have taken over hosting Thanksgiving. We add tables and chairs and 25-30 family members squeeze in and share Thanksgiving dinner and time together.
The last room on my leg of the Festive Fall Home Tour 2016 is our family room. We added it on last year and it is where my hubby and I spend most of our time. I kept it pretty simple in here, it was hard to top the fireplace!
I printed this adorable printable from Linda at The Home I Create , don’t you just love it?! I love styling my bookshelves and if you need some tips on how to style yours, you can learn how to Style Built-ins like a Boss HERE.
I just LOVE fall flowers and the ones seen in this post are all artificial! You can read how I get the most for my money with artificial flowers HERE. Almost all of my fall decor was purchased from my wonderful friends at The Shoppes of East Main store #1 and #2. If you are ever in Hagerstown, Indiana you must stop by for a look!
Our little guys, Pugsley and Winston, had to get in on the picture taking action. Faces only a mother could love, hehehehe! They are anxiously awaiting cooler weather too!
Wreaths are a huge part of fall decorating. You can see how I made this one in THIS POST.
I got this fall printable from Ann Drake over at Life…On Sutton Place, I love all of her printables, she is very talented!
That is the end of my fall home tour. I hope I have inspired you to begin some decorating of your own!

Cheers to the fall season!!
