Can I say this again without you rolling your eyes? Fall is my favorite time of the year! I feel like I should be able to write an ode to fall or at least a rhyme extolling all its amazing and glorious virtues! Fall and I were made for each other. So instead of a poem I’m sharing some of my favorite fall things in pictures!
Today on Decorating Tips And Tricks we are talking about FALL TABLE IDEAS. All three of us love to set a beautiful table and we are certainly having lots of fun sharing our ideas for setting a fall-perfect table!
You can listen to episode 104 below:
My fall favorite things list must start with PUMPKINS!!! Lancaster Country is dotted with field after field of pumpkins! So I decorate with them and cook with them and absolutely love them!!!!
Here are two posts with 100 WAYS TO DECORATE WITH PUMPKINS! And I bet I could have thought of a whole lot more! Each idea is easy and fun and full of fall inspiration!
Did you know you a pumpkin can work just like a baker dish? Yes, and a delicious one at that! One of my favorite pumpkin recipes is GRUYERE, BACON AND GREEN ONION STUFFED PUMPKIN! This recipe is a must-try! Oh how scrumptious and what a WOW of a recipe!
Before we leave PUMPKINS I have one more recipe for you! PUMPIN SPICE BAKED OATMEAL is a Lancaster County fall tradition. Eaten for breakfast with milk poured over it or as a snack with whipped cream or ice cream, this recipe is one luscious bite of autumn!
I also love M-U-M-S. Fall in the mid-Atlantic means mums! They can be upscaled to become a really beautiful addition to your fall home decor.
I have some great tips for dressing up mums HERE.
I think mums are a much underrated bloom. They are showy and big and long long lasting. Give them a chance! I’ll show you how to mix them with other fall elements so they will be swoon worthy! They are one of my favorite fall things!
Did you know that bittersweet is a nuisance plant. And may states are trying to eradicate it. But around here it is abundant in fields and hedgerows! And even though it does not play nicely with other plants I think it has a brambly beauty! And it is one of my favorite fall things!

I paired my love of wreaths with my love of bittersweet and made a FALL BITTERSWEET WREATH!
Fall leaves are some of my favorite things! They are saturated and colorful and leathery and crisp! There’s nothing quite like taking a walk when the fall leaves are swirling!
Fall leaves make showy decor!
I’m so fond of picking small branches from our trees and adding them to decor and fall tables!
Just a little heads up about pretty fall leaf filled branches… they don’t last very long! A day or two at best. So enjoy them!!!!
If you want fall leaves that last a little longer, try making a HERE.
Such an easy diy! Even if you are not crafty, you can do this!
As the weather turns nippy I love fire pits and cozy blankets! I love porch sitting wrapped up in a tartan and swinging on the back porch with a cozy flannel throw!
One of my very favorite things to do is to is to take a cup of coffee on the back porch early in the morning and wrap up in a cozy blanket and enjoy the scenery from my back porch. It’s perfect when I can see my breath!
You can see how to make this flannel blanket HERE and hand warmers HERE.
Fall is a time for hayrides, caramel apples, country fairs, sleeping with the window opens, Indian corn, apple cider, carving pumpkins, football, down vests, hot soup, walking in the woods, farmer’s markets, bulky sweaters, acorns, mittens, making applesauce, bonfires, tartan scarves, burnt orange lipstick, pumpkin spice lattes, camping, and Sunday afternoon naps!
These are a few of my favorite things… the fall edition!
