Hello Labor Day (well almost)!

Summer Fall Landscape Holiday

Transitioning our way from Summer to Fall!

The one thing I absolutely LOVE about living in New Jersey is that I get to appreciate all four seasons! By this time of year, I am excited for the last round at the beach and the pool. There is a certain calm that comes from the fall. I am not sure if it is that most of us are back to a structured life (school schedules, holiday preparations, etc.) or if I just find the colors and textiles of fall so comforting.

Small changes with light fall colors makes the transition calming.

Away goes the beach towels, summer decor and bright outdoor cushions! In comes subtle and warm colors made to just accent what is yet to come. I feel that if I go from summer to the bright colors of fall right away, I get tired of fall too quickly. Start by adding some simple greens, cream, lighter green and yellow pumpkins and gourds for a soothing transition.

Candles always set such a wonderful mood!

One way to incorporate fall without adding a bunch of scarecrows to your decor (ugh!) is to have multi sized vessels for candles. You can come up with some really creative items to put in with your candles. Try acorns (as seen above), dried beans, lentils, corn or even candy corn if you want a more whimsical look. The candlelight adds a warmth and a mood that screams fall and holiday.

There are so many things to look forward to once September rolls around the corner! The Holidays are quickly approaching and most of us start thinking of everything and anything that has to do with entertaining! If you are like me, dates for parties start getting planned and on the calendar. Thoughts start going into tablescapes, menus, decor, guest list, favors, hostess gifts, etc. I hate to be cliche’, but it really is, “the most wonderful time of the year”.

There is something special about having beautiful items to display on your table whether you are having friends for tea and coffee or a wonderful meal.

Adding beautiful pieces to your table makes your guests feel special. Speaking about feeling special…I like to look special too! Fall is so amazing for layering and feeling cozy!
