Hello! And welcome if you are coming my way from BD Interior Design on the tour! I’m Ruthie and this is my barely blog. I use it when, on the rare, I want to share a little more info than I can sling on my insta.

I didn’t have fall decorating plans until Jennifer and Jewel asked me to join up on this tour. Flattered by the queens of color’s invitation and worn down by my children who craved some festive decor, I added a bit of autumnal joy inside and out.

Everett and I put together a fall table during a break from his online kindergarten class. We gathered leaves, flowers, and pinecones from the yard. Grabbed some apples from the fridge and the rest from the recesses of our sideboard. It’s all thrifted, overtime, except Grammy’s dishes.

Emmeline, after finishing her virtual school for the day, wasn’t sure about the pink. But, I think it works once mixed with other natural, fall goodies.

The total smoke show was the best part.

I kept things simple in the entry, too. I ordered the wreath and garland, on fall doorbusters sale, for curbside pickup at JoAnn Fabrics. (Unavailable online, but limited stock at some stores.) Added a gaggle of pumpkins from Walmart and some lanterns we had hanging around.

I usually keep seasonal decorating fast and easy… and budget friendly since the shelf life is short.

We are smack in the middle of fall here in Iowa and it’s raining colorful leaves. Basically free, fall decor.

Thanks for checking out my fall festivus. Up next on the tour! Mimosa Lane
