Early Fall Decorating

Love decorating for fall early? Here are some simple ideas to get you ready for those warm and cozy fall vibes.

Our time in San Diego, CA, is ending; this will be our last year celebrating the holidays here in our little Camp Pendleton military base home. We’ve made so many great memories and had some amazing adventures.

I’ve had such a fun time decorating and making base housing a true home for us.

Where will our military journey take us next?

We may have an idea, but I will share it on Instagram when it’s set in stone. Since this is our last fall here in sunny San Diego, I want to make it extra special because next year, around this time, we will be in the middle of moving.

If you are coming from Kim’s lovely blog, Shiplap and Shells, welcome; I’m so happy you are here! I love how Kim transitions her home from summer to fall!

I also wanted to thank my sweet friend Pasha from Pasha is Home for hosting this lovely Early Fall Inspiration blog hop.

When is it the right time to start decorating for fall?

I believe that you can start decorating when you want. If you want to pull out your fall decor at the end of July, do so! If you want to wait until October, that’s perfectly fine too. Do what makes you happy. There is no wrong or right way to decorate for the seasons.

Since I couldn’t wait, I decided to start decorating for fall early this year. I usually start transitioning my summer home decor to fall during the last week of August, but I want to enjoy this season a bit longer this year and dove in early with decorating. It wasn’t even mid-August when I started decorating. And you know what? I love it! It may be 80 degrees outside, but the inside of our home is all about the cozy fall vibes. Since it’s still early in the season, I will add more fall decor in the coming weeks. Here’s what I have so far; it’s simple, and I love our home color palette this year.

This year I decided to decorate with traditional autumn colors. Oranges, reds, yellows, browns—these colors spoke to me this year. I aim to add more autumn foliage, twinkle lights, and pumpkins.

I bought a new wreath and an artificial fall tree. I’ve wanted an autumn tree for years but never bought one. This year I went for it, and I’m in love. I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to buy one!

If you don’t have an artificial fall tree, I recommend getting one.

I displayed a few ceramic white pumpkins throughout the house. I mainly focused on the faux foliage. I may not have a lot of fall decor out yet, but it’s a start, and I love how it looks so far.

I can’t believe our time in this home is slowly coming to an end. I will forever cherish the memories we’ve made here.
