Simple Fall decorating in the summer heat!
We will be in the 90’s all week in North Carolina, but my favorite time of year is just around the corner. I can barely wait to feel that first crisp morning that reveals its arrival!
I know it’s early, but the one thing about being in retail…is that you’re never in the moment.
My Christmas orders arrive in the summer and I’m buying watering cans in the winter.
With the change of season slowly approaching most of us are already secretly thinking about decorating our porches for Fall.
With a truck full of birdhouse gourds as my starting point, I started to pack up for the September Barn Show at Chartreuse.
The one thing about doing a monthly show is that you need to plan ahead.
You don’t get the full month to sell items, therefore, you may be a little early at times for something seasonal.
Last year the monthly barn show was the third weekend of the month so I was selling pumpkins in August!
As far as decorating for Fall I like to keep it simple.
The majority of my decorating will be outside with a few small things for inside our home.
The birdhouse gourds are a fun inexpensive item for the porch.
Toss in an old tobacco basket, hay bales, and a few pitchforks and you have a traditional southern Fall display.
One of my favorite items to pair with a rustic display is a cotton wreath.
Pick up an old tobacco basket at a flea market or barn sale 😉
Perfectly imperfect baskets with broken slates makes every basket unique.
The perfect accent to our rustic barn.
Or simply for your door!
Whatever your style you can’t go wrong with adding a little cotton to your Fall decorating.
As always I would love to hear from you.
