Annual Fall Excitement!

The annual autumn decoration house post!  My mom says I decorate for fall the way most people decorate for Christmas :)  

VERY true!

Here are links to posts past:
2010 We were traveling to China from our home in Saudi Arabia; God surprised us with a little Autumn foliage in Guilin, China.  So random and perfect!
2011 There were no fall house pictures because we were still renovating but a pumpkin patch was a pretty festive outing
  2012 Ryan was still recovering post-surgery and our house was a much needed retreat after all those weeks in the hospital
 2013 Last year I had fun doing a free house makeover with things already around!

This year I went with orange as the theme.  It's spunky, cozy, and the prefect amount of color.  Not a dollar spent again, but still so much fun to deep clean and turn our house into a warm little haven.

These are Japanese Lanterns from my aunt's garden  My absolute favorite fall decoration in history!

Our fall mantel made up of lanterns, a homemade book wreath, white porcelain, wheat, and the Japanese lanterns

The rest of the house had little pops of orange , pumpkins, chalkboard, or branches

The dining room just got a table cloth, a simple table settings, and a vase mixed with wheat and the lanterns

The orange all started with this soft little throw from my stocking last year--thanks mom!  The kitchen curtains got makeover and...duh...there's sweet cinnamon pumpkin soap at our kitchen sink

My mom and I have an annual tradition of going in September to get all thing fall from Yankee Candle and Bath & Body Works.  It's our favorite mother-daughter fall date!

We get a pumpkin spice latte and then pick our our favorite scented soaps and candles.  We have the best time!  The only thing missing was my sister who lives out of state...but don't worry Linny, we bought you lots of treats too :)

Happy Fall!

He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding
