My fall home tour is a little late.
October is almost over.
I have a Christmas tree sitting in my living room.
However, my house is not the only one suffering from a seasonal personality disorder.
Mother Nature needs a prozac……PRONTO!
Due to her hysterical sense of humor, I’ve been running around trying to get my greenhouse cleaned up for all my precious fern girls before the freezing temps hit.
It’s October……in the Hill Country. That is NOT supposed to happen right now.
BUT, there’s more……
After the 30’s, and for a few more giggles, Mother Nature is returning us to the 80’s.
So, do I put my prized ferns in the greenhouse or not?
That is the question of the moment.
I realize this post is supposed to be about my fall tour.
Let me re-group……

The Fall Tour Front Door
I love the wreaths I chose for my doors. They are full of sliced oranges, dried artichokes, and eucalyptus. I plan on leaving these wreaths up through November.
Then I will switch them out for gorgeous magnolia wreaths.
No fall porch is complete without mums and pumpkins.
And, little votive candles definitely set a fall mood.
The Master Porch
This year, I spent a great deal of time “fallifying” my outdoor spaces.
This is the porch off our master bedroom. You can see even more photos if you click here.
I also waxed this mirror and painted those sconces below before adding a whole bunch of pumpkins for the porch refresh.
The Living Room
When Mother Nature gave us some 90 degree temps and I was afraid my pumpkins were going to rot in the heat, I drug them all inside and put styled them down our stairs.
And of course, I had to add my signature bow to our horse.
The Fall Tour Table-scapes
I used hydrangeas in my first fall tablescape of the year.
Below, I transitioned into fall candles and candle wreaths. You can make your own here.
You don’t have to use traditional fall colors in your candle wreaths. In our wine cellar, I used neutral eucalyptus. Click here for that tutorial.
And, finally, I styled our outdoor seating area and lit up each place setting. You can get that tutorial here.
Our English bulldog, Reggie, loves to get his picture taken around the house when I am decorating.
He. turned 12 this year, and survived skin cancer. His vision is not as good as it once was.
Sometimes, the decor makes him nervous.
He loves his bow though!
And, he LOVES his treats.
But, that is as close as I could get him to participate in my fall front porch.
He did not care for the mums or the candles.
That’s a wrap on my 2020 fall home tour. Reggie says “Happy Fall Y’all” and go follow my mom on Instagram.
She’s always putting me in her stories.
