Fall Inspiration

I am not ready to decorate for fall yet. People are posting their fall decorations and I just cannot get there living in the heat and not wanting summer to end. I love fall but not when it is hot. So, I am not decorating until the end of September at the earliest- okay, unless I keep looking at all of you and can't wait any longer. Until then, here are some inspiration photos of things you can make or do to bring fall to your home.
These pumpkins were painted with metallic paint. I like the added ribbon accent.
We placed our folding round table and chairs out where our shed used to be under the canopy of the pines. I HAVE to decorate and have a meal out there!
I love the matallic pumpkins done in a subtle hue. I don't think I would like them done really bright and shiny. I also like the candle sticks made out of the mini pumpkins. I have yellow bowls similar in shape to the ones pictured here. I love yellow and oranges together.




I got a bunch of pear shaped candles at a garage sale last fall. They are so cute.









This is just a frame with added handles and glued on leaves to the back. What a cute tray.
To make these leaves you trace leaves on to screening with metallic paint pens and then cut out. These would really be a great accent on packages or in tablescapes.

I am ready for fall also, but still a little sad to see summer go. :(

The tray is so clever. Who would have thunk it? I also liked the screen leaf idea.

Thank you for sharing the ideas. I ready for Fall but Fall is definitely not here in our area either.

Ohhh, thanks for all the inspiration pics!

I love that tray and I think I'm going to do just the frame with no handles and hang it on my wall.

Those photos are gorgeous! I would love to decorate an outside canopy for a party when the weather cools off a bit ... maybe by Christmas. Once school starts, I am eager for cooler weather, but it will be a while!

I haven't started my fall decorating yet either, but those beautiful pictures make me really want to! I don't know how much longer I can hold out! I am so glad you left a message on my blog so that I could click over and find you. I am bookmarking you and look forward to reading your old posts and catching up.

I really like the metallic pumpkins too! Really cute.

And I love the screen leaves in your last picture... Hmmm... I might have to get creative and do some of these.
