My Secret Home Decor Crushes

Have you heard of the trending fall activity – foraging? Foraging has been all over Pinterest the past few weeks. It’s basically finding things from nature to decorate with, like pine cones, acorns, leaves, and grapevine to name a few. If you don’t live in a rural area, you can find things at the craft store, or even the grocery store. Doreen from Hymns and Verses shares great tips on fall decorating.  For even more fall decorating ideas be sure to check out my 11 Ways to Decorate for Fall on a Budget.

The next crush shows how to create a soft color palette by mixing pink and purple mums with orange pumpkins. The DIY fall basket on the front door pulls it all together. Orange pumpkins are usually less expensive than white, so this is a great way to keep costs down too. Mums and pumpkins on your front steps are such a simple way to welcome friends and family. For a different fall door decor, check out my darling Fall Gnome Door Hanger.

Foodie Crush of the Week

I just had to share this beautiful pumpkin spice cake. The photo just stopped me in my tracks. Isn’t it lovely? I bet it tastes amazing too. You can’t go wrong with pumpkin spice and cream cheese buttercream frosting. If you are not a fan of pumpkin, try my Vanilla Bean Cupcakes. So yummy!
