When your Autumn Decor is Fake Home Tour

9-25-14n 054 Fall Decor @ CharmingZebra.comFall is here and it’s a cause for celebration!

Today was the second morning in a row where I could turn off the air conditioner and open up the windows.  Yes, it’s true.  Three cheers for cool Autumn breezes!

Of course, temps quickly soared back into the mid 80’s for the rest of the day.  But for the morning at least, I could dream of crisp Fall days, colorful leaves and stylish new boots.

My favorite way to decorate for the Autumn season is to use natural elements from the outdoors.  Pinecones, brightly colored branches, fresh flowers and Fall pumpkins.  Unfortunately, Texas isn’t always a good host to the Autumn season.  The temperatures are too warm.  For most years, the leaves won’t even change color.  All of a sudden, they will just turn brown and drop off the trees.  Usually at the end of December.  So any glimpse of Fall here is a big treat.

Now, because of the lack of natural Fall flora, my Autumn decor usually centers around permanent or fake foliage.  Silk leaves, dried boxwood and plastic pumpkins.  I would prefer to use nature’s own, but it sure is fun to be able to introduce the happy, fake orange color into my home.

I went with a very simple theme this year and basically just incorporated items I already had.

  1. It is nice to acknowledge the movement of the planet and rythms of nature.

  2. Yup, got some cute new boots and spent the morning collecting acorns and branches from my trees. But don’t go feeling too bad for yourself just yet. Come January, we will think we live in the Antartic and won’t see our toes in flip flops until at least the middle of May, often times later. Our wintertime “fun” is taking part in the Polar Plunge and what sane person jumps into a frozen lake when it is only 5 degrees out?

  3. not so quick here anyways. need a couple more weeks before I am skipping around the front yard! 🙂

  4. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has
    a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from
    being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate

  6. I like those pumpkins. It gives ‘more’ nature touch to your decoration. I don’t from where you got the idea. For me it is very interesting. Are they real?
    Real pumpkins are better and possible since pumpkins can stand more days then others fruits.
    Congratulations with your new idea.
