Fall decorating for the lazy...

... which is what I am lately...


Sprigs of autumn leaves (faux, of course) have been tucked around the white hydrangeas (faux, of course)...


Witchy woman has donned her witch hat... not even a scarf to accessorize with this year (soooo lazy... me, not her)


A green and white checked quilt has been thrown over the white tablecloth (it's the reverse side of my peachy-pink floral quilt)...


And that's the extent of fall decorating that has been done in the dining area... I'll share what little else has been done around the house in my next post. (I don't think I was ready for summer to leave, which is why it's really hard to get into autumn right about now... Summer, please come back for a bit!!!)

I hear you Donna about not wanting Summer to end but I'd say you better get in the fall mode soon because it seems like it's almost over!

The decor on the table might be simple but I really like it. Very pretty, and cottagy. It looks good with the overhead chandelier.

I've done exactly nothing! I don't really do enough seasonal decorating...I mean to, but this year I'm behind. I'll try to grab some pumpkins before my sister arrives on Thursday.

I ordered my fabric pumpkins from Ronda - and an office chair slipcover. I'm so glad you blogged about her new website because I thought she disappeared! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

Looks great!

The last few years here in Utah we've been able to have nice 70ish weather until Halloween night. I was hoping we would have a repeat year.

Not so much...
It's already hailed and the wind is blowing in winter here really fast, so sad. We built our first fire last night.

Anyways.. since I can't have a warm fall I'm wishing you one!

Donna, your lazy decorating turned out beautifully! Maybe I'm trying just too hard! :)

It looks like fall to me! It's okay to be lazy sometimes. Often the best decor is the understated!

I think your decor is just right, and perfectly timed as well. Witchy woman doesn't need a scarf yet anyway, ha!

I'm not sure what it is but I have not been in the decorating mood either.

I think maybe with all our remodling going on I'm sick of it. LOL

I don't think I'll be doing much this year at our house at all.

Hugs,
joanne

Witchy Woman is so clever. I'm still talking to myself about putting out some Halloween decor. Just too many other things going on in life at the moment, but I'm moving in that direction. Like you, I plan to keep it simple. Thanks for sharing. ~ Sarah
