Fall Decor and Free Printables



Today is officially the first day of fall!!  Happy Fall Y'all!  It is still a little hard to believe as the temperature has been getting into the low 90's still here in the Dallas area.  But......the evenings and mornings are a little chillier.  So in celebration of fall I have decorated my "mantel" and even created a few free printables you can use if you'd like to.  My theme was natural textures, with touches of red, oranges and yellows.



This set of dishes is one of my favorite fall decor pieces.  They are a set by Kenro called "Holiday" and were passed down to me from my great grandmother.  If you look closely you can see the little brown "speckles".






I created a Thanksgiving printable set that included a couple of verses.  The colors went so well with how I was decorating this year that I decided to put them up a little early.




You may download them here for your own personal use if you'd like.  The rest of the set will be available in November.

{Update:  The entire set of printables are now available.  You may find them on this post}



 To add to the natural feel I covered this old root beer bottle with twine from the dollar store.  It really was an easy project.  I used a little bit of tacky glue here and there to keep it from unraveling.


My shelves house most of my white dishes collection.  I took some of them down to add more of the fall theme, but you can still get a pretty good feel for what is usually there.  As a final touch I hung my fall leaves banner (free printables) to welcome in the season.

Update:  I just posted a pattern to make a flannel pumpkin which goes great with these fall colors.



New to Redfly?  Many more great ideas to come!
