Ready for Harvest

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons.  It's a time of harvest, reflection on what I've done through the year to get me to this point and all the things I have to finish before the new year.  Of course, there is the literal harvest of squash and everything else yummy that is ready for adding to savory dishes.  I love the crisp air, beautiful colors on the changing trees, pumpkin everything from lattes to jack-o-lanterns.  October begins the end-of-year holiday festivities for me. I could buy a whole house full of fall and Halloween decorations each year if budget allowed. Instead, I'll just enjoy suggesting fun decor items for you to go out and harvest.  Z Gallerie and Pier 1 Imports are all geared up for the seasons.  Here are a few items I found on their sites:

This post made me think of a question for you. How much changing of decor do you do in your own house throughout the year? Do you do frequent changes of seasonal accessories? Are they major changes, or just a few pieces? I have a little Christmas decor, but other than that don't really change anything. Storage is a big issue for me, since I don't have a garage or basement and already have too much stuff relative to storage space. Even if I had storage space though, I'm not sure if I would do much seasonal decorating. I think that would be an interesting topic to read a post about.

And that first candle sconce (sp?) is awesome, I'd love to put up a couple of those, although they would stay year round. :)

Good Questions! I guess it depends on if I'm hosting a party or not that season as far as how many decorations I put out. It does require some storage space though. At least one or two of those holiday Tupperware they sell at Target :) I find that the more I put out, the more I get in the mood for the holiday, but it definitely helps to do it early in the season so you can enjoy it! It's easy to deck the halls to the max at Christmas. I will think about your question a little more and address it in a future blog. Thanks!
