Grey Fall Decor

DSC_0169Over the last month I have finally painted many of the walls in our home.  As a result, my holiday decor needs to change a bit as well.  Somehow Halloween orange just does not have the same impact when you do not have beige walls.  I realize this is rather picky, but now that the house is less cluttered, I want my holiday decor to accent the existing items.  Somehow when you have less stuff, jamming every corner with pumpkins and candy corn seems less exciting.  So here is a peak into my simple, greyer, fall decor…DSC_0171 Spooky cards and wicked witch book from the Bella Vista Craft Fair (for you local Sac readers).  Skull found at the Salvation Army.DSC_0179 I love this new buzzard I found this year, also at the Bella Vista Craft Fair.  He is so unique.  The crafter that made this had all sorts of dirty brown textures…think Nightmare Before Christmas.  But I didn’t dare bring my camera to the craft fair…they are even more possessive of their ideas…DSC_0181 Skulls from the Dollar Tree last year…DSC_0183 Monogrammed white pumpkins from our wedding last year…DSC_0188 DSC_0189 Pumpkins being weighed on my vintage scale.  These are probably really the only orange I kept out this year.  Putting them in a cluster together seemed more fitting than spreading them around.DSC_0190 A simple table centerpiece…the big pumpkin holds it’s own…DSC_0192 DSC_0198 DSC_0203 Just a little bit of candy…I usually would have jars filled with candy corn and such but this year we don’t need the calories or the waste of money…DSC_0204 Turkey comes out as well…DSC_0205 Another BV craft fair find from last year…DSC_0206 A pumpkin candle in the bathroom…DSC_0207 DSC_0208 I put some of my fall gourds and corn outside on the porch…DSC_0213 DSC_0215It is not super orange, but I like it.  The house still says welcome fall but also flows with the rest of the house. 

Decorating is hard work!

How are you decorating for fall?
