ANTIQUE FARMHOUSE DECOR FOR FALL + HALLOWEEN
The one thing I love about changing seasons is being able to add seasonal touches throughout my home to embrace whatever holiday it is. Fall certainly has to be one of my absolute favourites. There is something so inviting about fall burning candles filling your home, warm apple cider in front of the fireplace and pumpkins around every corner. Is there seriously anything better?
My favourite place to find little holiday touches for my home and front doorstep is from Etsy. I love how I am able to find practically everything I want and I can shop locally within Canada too. It’s wonderful how you can hunt for something as simple as little banners and garlands that help give those perfect holiday touches you can use year after year. I am so excited to have a cozy space all ready for when baby arrives because I know our house is going to be full.
I like my fall and Halloween decor to all mix into one reflecting my personal style. You know what that means? A whole lot of neutrals. Halloween decor doesn’t necessarily have to mean black and orange and you can completely make it your own–at least that’s what I do! I’ll always add in some real or faux flowers, white and cinderella pumpkins from our local market and other non holiday pieces I’ve found on Etsy. Like this vintage scale, this wooden chair and antique stool or the little glass bottles I’m using to hold the flowers.
Chalkboards are huge in my home and I love using them as decor. Etsy has some adorable printable designs that are super easy or you can order some ready made options like this one here. I used the cute little Happy Halloween one for inspiration. Such a simple touch like a chalkboard design I feel adds so much feeling to the area you are decorating. You can find more Halloween inspired touches here.
I saw the idea of covering your pumpkins with lace doilies on Pinterest and felt it couldn’t be any more fitting for me. I ordered my doilies from here and here on Etsy. I’ve seen two options where they either glue them around or cut a little hole at the top to fit over the pumpkin stem and I liked option number two just so I could use the lace doilies again without having to deal with the remaining glue.
