Simple Fall Decorating {Fall in Love with Texas Blog Tour}

You can barely tell it’s fall here in Texas because the heat made it’s way back here this week. (Insert sad face emoji and maybe even a few tears!)

Even so, there’s no stopping my fellow Texas bloggers and me from ushering in the season — even when Mother Nature refuses to cooperate.



Today, I’m so happy to be joining a group of talented Texas women who are sharing their fall decor with you!  I want to extend a special thank you to Katie at Let’s Add Sprinkles who wrangled all of us together and organized this fun fall tour!


Today is the last day and I’m excited that it’s finally my turn to share!

The links to today’s posts (and all of them from this past week) are listed below, so I hope you’ll pay a visit to my friends and tell them hello!

Last week, I showed you how I am decorating with a lot of faux elements this year.  You can click here to see that post if you missed it.



Today, I’m showing you the simple fall decorating in my kitchen and breakfast area.  And, I do mean simple!



The older I get the more I long to keep things easy and no fuss.  Sometimes just a small ribbon tied to what I use everyday is enough.



For a little bigger punch, I added some pops of fall color with kitchen towels, salt and pepper shakers and my ceramic pumpkin jar — it’s perfect for hiding treats inside, too! 



I added more simple fall decorating items in my breakfast nook and that’s it!



I’m just not feeling the need to go overboard and I love it!  It’s still festive and better yet, it’s going to be so easy to put things away when it’s time for the Christmas decorations to come out.



I’m so happy you stopped by for a visit — if you are new here, I hope you’ll stick around to browse awhile.  If you’re just getting started on the tour, I hope you’ll see what my friends are sharing by clicking the links below!

    Julie, I love your pretty door basket filled with autumn leaves. And the small pops of fall color in the kitchen are perfect. You’ll be way ahead of everyone when it’s time to decorate for Christmas…I completely get keeping it simple. 🙂 Maybe I’ll do the same next year. Here’s to our next cool front! Hope it hurries (I think I cried a bit too).

  17. Botanic Bleu says:

    The leave-filled basket on your front door is Fall perfection. Your ribbon touches in the kitchen added just enough to say Fall with your existing everyday items. And the little white ceramic pumpkin with the orange berries also says Fall. Lovely touches throughout your kitchen…

    It’s been a great week being on the Texas fall tour together…


  18. This is all so pretty Julie. I agree that simpler can be so much prettier and less stressful too. 🙂

  19. Hi Julie … so nice to meet you along with the other Texas blogger getting together to do this Blog Tour. I love your ‘simple fall decorating’. Everything is so pretty and interesting, down to the detail of the two small pumpkins on you stove vent.

  20. I never tire of seeing your gorgeous kitchen! And how smart are you to keep it simple, I’m going to take that advice someday 🙂 Sorry for my late visit, I had a houseful of Longhorns all weekend! Hope to see you in a couple of weeks! xo, Andrea
