If I haven’t said so before, I absolutely adore Autumn! I like Spring, and I’m not so keen on Summer or Winter, but Autumn is (in Nacho Libre’s voice) the BAYST! So I recently took it upon myself to put up some Autumn decorations around my house, particularly the living room. I also got out pretty cheap. In this post, I wanted to show you what I did, whether it inspires you in your own decorating or you would simply like to celebrate the season with me!
This is my living room/dining area. My boyfriend brought this table with him when we moved in together, and I have to say I think it is colored perfectly for the fall season.
As I mentioned previously, I got by pretty cheaply. Everything was inexpensive because I did my shopping at the Dollar Tree. I grabbed a few fake flowers and mixed and matched them based on color. I also took home pumpkin-shaped place mats, window “clings”, some candles, and a few little pumpkin figurines.
It’s unrelated, but I got my pictures hung up finally! Eighteen months after moving in and I’m just now getting my home cozy, but I love how it’s turning out in this corner of the house.
A word on the flowers I chose. Autumn is a time for warm colors like red, orange, and yellow. So naturally, I gathered a few fake flowers that contained these colors. But I threw in a few splashes of purple because there’s nothing better than a splash of color contrast.

I grabbed some fake flowers from the store because at 9 months pregnant, I’m a little too exhausted to make my own but that is totally a goal in the near future. You can totally make flowers out of ribbon or even paper, and we’ll show you how to do this soon, so stay tuned! 😀
After setting up the table the way I wanted it, I moved on to the window clings. Now, I have mixed feelings about these window clings. They are certainly cute, but if I could do it over again, I wouldn’t buy these from the Dollar Tree. They fell off pretty fast. But before that, I got a nice picture! What I will probably do is apply them again but tape them.
The last thing I did was set up some candles. DELICIOUS smelling candles. Both cost one dollar each, and while they are inexpensive, they smell amazing. I grabbed “Pumpkin French Toast” and “Pumpkin Cheesecake.” The cheesecake is my favorite. 😀
