The breeze is a crisp reminder of the cooler temperatures of fall. The season is changing and it is a beautiful scene. Texas doesn’t display the signature colors of fall. However, the friendly faces setting out pumpkins with enthusiasm creates the contagious love for the season.
I love when I pass homes with decorated front porches this time of year. It is just the beginning. Soon there will be halloween decorations, thanksgiving banners, and then Christmas garland. This can seem a lot to keep up with so I keep it simple and long lasting.
My fall decorations carry me through thanksgiving so I only decorate once. This helps with a lower decor budget and shrinks my ever-growing to do list.
When decorating for autumn, I know it is going to be around awhile so I make my choices wisely. Going with a color scheme that is natural and classic will ensure you don’t tire of your selection mid-November.
If you’re thoughtful on your mark on the environment, you’ll be proud to decorate once to keep your consumption down. Utilizing items that are renewable like pumpkins and live plants will also help in preparing a lovely display that won’t clutter up a landfill or drain your funds.
Not to mention, a live display of pumpkins and greenery is so much more beautiful than plastic and glitter could hope to be.
