4 Easy (and affordable) Ways to Refresh Your Home For Fall

I don’t know about y’all, but as soon as Summer comes to a close I get the itch to redo my entire house for Fall.  I bust out the pumpkins (and Christmas decor) earlier every year it seems and I am totally ok with it! My husband is an educator and I’m a stay at home mom, which means our budget is always really limited.  As much as I want to redo the whole house I realistically am only able to change up a few small things, so I try to get the most bang for my buck.  Below is my list of four ways to refresh your space for Fall.


  1. Throw pillows

Changing out or adding a pillow or two to your couches or beds is a cheap and easy way to make it feel more like Fall in your home.  In the Summer most of my decor is white and other light colors, but in the Fall I love to throw in some green, deep reds or oranges and black.  Throw pillows are a great way to add color and a Fall vibe into a room.  As soon as Summer comes to an end I’ll hit up Target and TJ Maxx and they usually have the perfect pillows that are exactly what I’m looking for.

2. Candles and Hand Soaps

Is it really Fall if you aren’t burning Pumpkin scented candles??  Lighting up my Fall candles and busting out the hand soaps are one of the first things I do when the seasons change.  I LOVE when my home smells like Autumn and all the yummy baked goods and it helps me think it’s Fall even when it’s still 90 degrees here in Alabama.  Bath and Body Works and TJ Maxx have the best soaps and candles, go grab a few of each and start enjoying them early! Leaves is my ALL-TIME FAVORITE scent at Bath and Body Works, y’all will love it!

3. Pumpkins

I love decorating with mini pumpkins!  They are so pretty and come in a variety of creamy colors.  I will usually pick them up from our Farmers Market and they will last a few months, but this year we planted some and I’m hoping I’ll get a few for free out of our garden.  Try adding some to your porch steps, a bowl on your table or on your shelves in your home for all the Fall feels.


4. Wreaths

This is one of my favorite ways to change up my decor for Fall.  I take down my trusty Magnolia wreath and switch it out for something less summery.  There are tons of fun options out there so find one you like and hang it on your front door or even somewhere inside your home to get you into the Fall spirit.
