America Does This Better

I’ve come to the conclusions that Americans do Fall way better that us Canadians. Mostly because their Thanksgiving is an entire month after ours, which means they get to relish in all things Autumn decor for much longer.

In Canada, at least the places I’ve lived, Fall, Autumn, Harvest is something we really only indulge in for about 15 days. Things don’t start cooling down until late September, early October. Pumpkins and gourds aren’t ripe for the picking until that time. We gear up and decorate for Thanksgiving, then if you have kids, your lovely fall decor gets pushed aside for Halloween, and then its over. We’re stuck with our undecorated, holidayless homes until December.

We really could hang on to our reds, and oranges and browns longer than we do, I think we just all look at it as holiday decor, and once Thanksgiving is over, so is all the loveliness. We should really do something about that. Next year, I am, I swear. 

And since this post is all about decor (because I’m obsessed) here are five fall decor pieces I’m really loving right now.

Fall Decor

Pillow – I’m developing a bit of a cute pillow addiction. Our couches are full, and my fiance is becoming slightly annoyed. But I can’t help it. They just add so much to the space. And I love how warm and cozy and inviting they make our living room look. 
Mug – Cooper has always been one of my favourite metals and I’ve been known to like adorable mugs. Plus, it holds alcohol and doesn’t have a feminine look so JW won’t hate it. #winning. 
Antler – JW is a hunter. He sometimes talks about wanting trophies in the house. Thats never going to happen, but maybe a fake, pretty looking one will appease him. #fingerscrossed
Fig – Its cute, its shiny. Its traditional with a touch of modern. I’ll take it.
Napkins – I’m loving the color in these and while I’m not typically a cloth napkin (at home) kinda girl, but these would look great at our next Friendsgiving.
Pumpkin – The real deal doesn’t last long around here, especially inside, so we have to turn to fakes. I know this one is far from traditional, but the price is pretty good, and I’ve always kind of liked adding interesting pieces to a decor scheme.
Log Holder – This beauty has so many options. It could hold logs, or pillows and throws, or be a drink bucket.
Doormat – This time next year JW and I will be married, and we’d be a “real” family. This lovely would look great on our front step.
Not surprisingly almost all of these beauties are from #Target. And now that they FINALLY ship to Canada, my poor little bank account is going to be toast.
