My Top 5 Fall House Essentials for 2019



Happy Monday ladies!

Today I thought it would be fun to cover some of my absolute favorite house essentials to help make your house feel like fall. Personally, I am not a huge Halloween decorator. I am contemplating possibly getting into it next year, but for right now, I keep it more “fall” focused. This way, I don’t really have to do much of anything until after Thanksgiving when I want to start decorating for Christmas. For me, this helps to save on money (because I am not buying Halloween decorations and Fall decorations), time (time spent decorating and finding decorations), and I just feel like it is more my style.

Decorating for fall though, doesn’t have to be complicated. I just throw out a few essentials and am ready to rock and roll and have allll of the fall feels.

  1. First up, is fall smelling candles. These can be found pretty inexpensively at Homegoods, which is where I got the majority of mine, but Anthropology also has an amazing selection that they come out with. I literally light mine almost everyday and feel like the smell immediately makes me happy and puts me in the fall mood.
  2. Fall wreath. I think a festive wreath always makes your home feel more in line with the season. It is also a simple, and super easy way, to make your entrance festive without breaking the bank. Throw out a few pumpkins you carve up for Halloween, and your entrance will be perfect and ready to go!
  3. A table runner. I love a good seasonal table runner. You can also find inexpensive ones of these from Homegoods and TJ Max, or you can invest in a nicer one from Pottery Barn or Williams and Sonoma. I found that this year, Target had a few fun ones as well, that won’t break the bank.
  4. Mini pumpkins. You can typically buy these in a pack for around $10 – $15 and I use them as decor throughout the house. A pack might come with 7 – 10 pumpkins and I use them in various things. You could use them as the centerpiece to your table, place them over a place setting for a nice seasonal touch, throw them in a clear vase and place somewhere through the house that may not have as much decor…the options are endless and you can re-use them over and over again.
  5. Pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. I LOVE going to the pumpkin patch. It is such a fun fall thing to do and pumpkins aren’t going to break the bank like a lot of other decor might. Plus, if you don’t carve them, and/or if they are small, they will last you for forever. I like the get the Cinderella pumpkins and then a small medley of little ones to decorate with throughout the house.

I hope this tips help to make your home feel cozy and ready for fall. Throw in a cozy throw and a pumpkin spice latte, and you will be ready to take on the season!

If you enjoy these types of posts, stay tuned because I will be sharing a similar one, but with all the focus on my fireplace/mantle!
