I love Fall and can´t wait for the 1rst of September to come around every year. It is my official start for Fall and although I can not wear my new and beloved Fall clothing now cause the temperatures don´t play along I can decorate my house for colorful Autumn days.
There are tons of different Fall decor out there but to be honest my favorite pieces are Fall candles and pumpkins. Getting new Fall candles are my jam. To be honest I love candles year round but Fall is THE time to light a candle and get cozy at home.
How to incorporate fancy pumpkins to your home decor
Style your fancy pumpkin in a bunch of different pumpkins. I love to incorporate different sizes, colors and structures of pumpkins into a decoration scheme, also different heights. That´s what makes it interesting. Adding some fake flowers or real Fall flowers adds up even more to your decor.
Style them as a center piece like I did with the studded pieces on the tray. The only decor I got there are the pumpkins so the focus stays on them. You can add some matches if you like to complement the Fall feel.
Style your pumpkin with a Fall candle to create the ultimate Fall setup. I went with the glittery big white pumpkin and Harvest Walk from Yankee Candle. It is my favorite corner in our living room.
Are you decorating for Fall? I definitely need to do our porch as well. Getting a bunch of pumpkins and mums on the weekend.
the weekend is near I can practically feel it although I don´t have much of a weekend cause Emilia isn´t taking a break but it is nice to slow down for three days and have my husband around to do things together.
But let´s talk about this fabulous blow-up pool I ordered for our garden. It has been THE investment for this year and I am not quite sure what could top it. It is our most used Summer accessory and the whole family including my mom loves it. We have used it nearly every day since the weather has become incredibly hot.
Having an iced coffee and sitting in the blow-up pool. It is the simple life in times of a pandemic that makes our day.
The blow-up pool has been an amazing amazon buy after seeing it on Kathleen Barnes Instagram. I also got the cover cause it is under our fruit trees which means lots of dirt in the water.
Bathing suits like the one I am wearing above have become a huge favorite of mine and this love has only grown over the last few years since they are getting more trendy and pretty. Also they are my best friends after having a baby. They suck in the places that need it most and still look fashionable and pretty.
I am now off to bed. See you tomorrow probably after we are home from a delicious breakfast. We do as much as we can outdoors to enjoy our Summer without getting on a Summer vacation. Travelling with a baby and Covid is just too much for me so we focused on making an outdoor oasis.
one day left and the weekend is here. I feel like I am the most productive on the weekend cause my husband is home so I can get stuff done besides watching Emilia plus we are doing everything together on the weekend and that is definitely more fun.
As you might know from previous home decor posts I love to create tablescapes. Personally one of my favorite point when it comes to entertaining in our home. But sometimes as there isn´t a special ocassion or season it needs to be something simple but beautiful that fits in seamlessly with your other decor.
This fun gingham and eucalyptus mixture fits the bill. The cotton napkins are available in a ton of different colors on amazon so there should be a matching dining room color for almost everyone.
If you want this to work year round it is better to work with faux plants cause they don´t need to be freshened up on a short base. Pampas gras is the latest trend and fulfills this purpose perfectly.
Another addition I always love are candles. Create and interesting space by playing with the heights of the candles and the candlesticks itself.
Since everything else is laid back in color and material I went with fancy glass ware to bring on the glam. Glasses with golden rims look super luxurious but are also functional and pretty as well. These are from H&M and very low maintenance. I just clean them in the dishwasher and they are good to go.
Do you love hosting guests as well ? I can´t wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas time. I love to set up Fall table decor with all the pumpkins and Fall leaves.
Aren´t we looking constantly for things to make our lives easier? I definitely do and Amazon really is a great source for pieces to get nowhere else. In times of the Coronavirus and staying at home a lot I have spend a great amount of time on there and found some awesome pieces.
Amazon Top 5 Household Gadgets
Here are my top 5 household gadgets I love to use and don´t want to miss.
Attachable Pasta Strainer // This is probably the most used gadget of all. It is so so convenient if you are cooking a ton of pasta cause you can easily attach it to your pot and drain all the water. Then you have hot pasta ready to serve.
Coffee Mug Warmer // Came across another bloggers post through this genious piece. Don´t we all know the perks of taking calls, opening doors or taking care of our babies all while our hot delicious cup of coffee is getting lukewarm?!
Multiple Hanger for Skirts // It is supposed to hang 4 pairs of skirts but you can easily double or triple it as the clips are strong enough so this means you can easily store up to 12 skirts on one hanger. If that isn´t a space saver for your closet I don´t know what is.
Fabric Shaver // The perfect tool to quickly remove fabric pills from your beloved clothes. Works quick and easy and leaves your clothing looking brandnew.
Floor Mop // I had a Swiffer up to date and ended up disliking it cause it didn´t really clean my floors. Just was a quick solution for inbetween cleanings. This item is really great. It comes with two microfibre cloths and an attachment for window cleaning. You can put your cleaning solution and water into the little container on the front and spray before you mop. It is super easy and not messy at all in comparison with a bucket full of water.
My top 5 items. Do you have specific pieces off of Amazon you can´t life without? I woul d love to hear about them.
