Fun Fall Updates

Well, I think it's safe to say that fall is here. For those of you that know me or for those that have been reading this blog, you know that I have been fighting summer's departure tooth and nail. I'm a summer lovin' girl through and through (see earlier post: Autumn is Closing In...)! This time of year can always be a little tricky when it comes to wardrobe and domestic updates, which only fuels my burning denial of the season change. However, I've pretty much decided to embrace the season change because 1. there's nothing I can really do about it and 2. I still have one more tropical vacation on the books! :) With that being said, I went ahead and started updating my home for fall. 

I made a trip to Michael's and found some great gourds at half price that make an understated, yet classy centerpiece for the dining room table. I purchased two bags, a bag of small ones and a bag of large ones. A great centerpiece for only ten bucks!

I also thought it would be fun to make a fall wreath. I purchased a plain grapevine wreath, flowers, leaves, berries and ribbon and original fall wreath for less than 19 bucks!

The husband LOVES candy corn so I made sure to stock up! After filling all the candy dishes, there was a ton of candy corn left over. I channeled my inner domestic creativity and decided to use the candy corn for vase filler.  Check it out!

All in all, I guess I am a little excited about fall and the upcoming holiday season. I'm just always a little resistant at first! ;) How are you updating your home for the season? I'd love to hear your ideas!  Happy Fall, Y'all! :)
