These days, we love to watch LSU football, go to fall festivals or craft shows, anticipate the exact time satsuma oranges will be ready to pick, and of course, hope to experience some milder weather. Fall is also a great time for hunting and fishing here in Sportsman's Paradise.
She says...I have been working on decorating our home for the fall season, this week. I added a new mini magnolia wreath as well as a pretty dough bowl candle to my dining area, this year. I've kept the decorating simple so that I can enjoy it through Thanksgiving. The day after Thanksgiving I put it all away and decorate for the Christmas season. (Which is my favorite!)

olive green napkins accent our table.

addition of cotton stems) from Kirkland's.
|Mini white pumpkins from Hobby Lobby.|
(I painted the stems.)

and mini pine cones for the center of the table.

He says...Fall is definitely my favorite time of year! My idea of fall decor is somewhat similar to Anne's. However, I prefer to use natural foliage and vegetation with most of my decor. Take for example this tall, saltwater marsh grass between me and a spread of duck decoys. The Avery Green Head Gear Pro Series decoys provide a nice contrast to the mirror of the fall overcast sky.
Sometimes, I don't mind having an artificial foliage....such as this Avery Quick-Set Boat Blind with Bottom Land skin when hunting flooded timber. The dark colors blend well with shaded tree trunks.
And sometimes, a good blend of artificial foliage with natural vegetation can be very decorative...such as these Higdon Blind Grass Sheets blended with natural cattails. A Labrador Retriever makes for a great centerpiece with all of the above, don't you think?
Hope everybody's Fall is getting off to a great start! I'm looking forward to getting some use out of my Fall decor, soon......well....if it ever cools down!
