Fall has officially arrived! Well, maybe not here in the Dallas area, but definitely in our home. I’ve styled our home earlier than usual this year in hopes that I can get ahead a little bit this season and share my very first fall home tour. With all the pumpkins and deeper fall tones in our home right now, I’m feeling ready for cooler temps, college football, and all things apple cider. To kick off the change in seasons, I’ve joined up with four other talented bloggers to bring you a fall home tour blog hop. You can find the direct links at the end of my post to all of their inspiring homes styled beautifully for fall.

After scouring the city for my favorite Cinderella pumpkins and gourds, I called our local nursery and asked when they were getting their pumpkin shipment in. A long pause, followed by a deliberately patient answer, told me I would need to wait a week longer for the truck to deliver all. the. fall. goodness.
When shipment day finally arrived, I showed up like the pumpkin-fanatic they were
dreading expecting. With our littlest in tow, Lucy and I filled our buggy with pumpkins galore. All I knew was, I wanted lots of neutrals. I found some bunches of beautiful dried Silver Dollar Red Eucalyptus earlier in the month at my local craft store and decided to use it as a pop of color throughout our home. Using neutrals as a backdrop always gives a clean palate when wanting to change out color schemes in the home.
The really neat thing about these unique eucalyptus branches, is that in some bundles the leaves were vibrant shades of burgundy and in other bunches, the leaves displayed more of a deep purple color. I knew they would create some stunning contrast up against ivory and pale green pumpkins. We left the nursery with ivory Cinderella pumpkins, mini pumpkins, pale green gourds, white snowball pumpkins, and some adorable green and purple cabbage.
First on my list was to get our front porch styled. I put Lucy down for a nap and got to work arranging pumpkins and plants. As I started, I began having flashbacks to last year when I looked out our front door window and spotted a long rat snake wrapped around one of my pumpkins. NOT A FAN OF SNAKES! I shuddered at the thought and pushed it out of my mind. Praying against serpents, and styling for fall in the September heat is a totally normal way to spend an afternoon, right?!
Once I was happy with my welcoming little porch-pile-up of pumpkin goodness, I added a few lanterns. Next I tucked in some clippings of the red eucalyptus to the nuetral fall wreath I made last year. So simple, no glue. My kind of project. After the front porch was complete I put on a little bit of music, poured myself a cup of coffee and proceeded to make the most of two older kiddos in school, and a little one snoozing the day away. Our entire home was about to get sprinkled in fall, regardless of what the Texas weather forecast said… and I couldn’t wait!
Welcome! Lola would like to be the first to greet you as you begin our fall home tour! Hope you enjoy!
My grandmother’s communion table in our entryway got a few touches of fall with a natural arrangement of red eucalyptus and several mini pumpkins.
Our dining room is in the middle of a makeover so its in a state of shambles right now. If you were popping over I’d kindly ask that you walk on past the mess, and join us for coffee in the living room. I cannot wait to share the finished dining room very soon. But more importantly, I cannot wait to USE our finished dining room as a family, very soon.
Not too many things changed in our living room. A cozy plaid wool throw here and there, and some more pumpkins throughout, gave this space just enough touches for autumn.
Our mantel was freshened up with mini white pumpkins and copper candle holders.

The only touches of fall that graced our kitchen were a few mini pumpkins and some of the purple under-toned eucalyptus branches on our three tiered tray.
I usually use our tray to store some of our bowls and small white dishes that we use frequently. But I took the set of bowls we eat cereal out of, and replaced them with a few pumpkins. Though I liked the way the tray turned out, I am already missing the convenience, so I’m not sure this will last very long.
After I got the main areas of the home styled, I figured I would add a few simple things to our guest suite. We will be having a dear friend stay with us at the end of September, and she might just appreciate a little fall decor in her room.
And just like that, the inside was completely styled for fall!

With the inside of the house complete, I wanted to wrap up with our back patio. I love to entertain in our home. Whether it’s for family or friends, our back yard is a place we often end up hanging out. Because our dining room is in disarray, and tablescapes are my favorite thing to style each season, I decided to do a simplified tablescape on our back patio table. Besides, I can’t have a fall home tour without a little tablescape love?! More pumpkins, and copper candle holders paired with a blanket scarf as a runner, and extra clippings of the Silver Dollar Red Eucalyptus. And just like that, our patio is ready for all the fireside marshmallow roasting, football watching, and family gatherings.
