I’d like to say I begin bringing in all my fall home decor favorites as soon as the air turns crips. Truth is, I was perusing all the new autumn decor back in August. It was still 80 degrees in Chicago last week but I bought the mums pictured above on Labor Day. I was scooping up all sorts of festive kitchen items even before that. I’m always ready for the cozy season and never more so than this year. I know I’m not alone here.
After picking up my favorite tri-color mums, I found the black metal jack-o-lanterns at Pottery Barn. Unfortunately, those are now sold out but I have linked some others I like below. I also added the large black metal lanterns pictured here, which can be used year-round. I bought the smaller ones last year and kept them out all year. (You can buy a remote control for the flameless candles.) The orange flickering from Target are fabulous and I’m slowly adding pumpkins. The plan is to blanket the terrace with them.
Here’s everything I’m loving this season. Be sure to check out my favorite fall items for the kitchen here (because you need a pumpkin themed spatula).
