Fall Entertaining and Decorating Inspiration

Is Your Home on the Market?

Bring In Some Fall Decor to Inspire Your Buyers...


by Joyce Marsh Homes and Lifestyles



Fall has Arrived. Yes, it's hard to believe that the summer is gone, and we are officially into Fall, but yes it's true.  Now is the perfect time to start thinking about decorating our homes for the fall season.  Out with the summer, and in with the rich colors and smells of autumn.

If your home is currently on the market, why not bring some fall decorating inspiration into your home to inspire your buyers.  Staging your home for fall will not only be festive and make your home more beautiful, but will be attractive to buyers as well. A beautiful Fall Centerpiece, or decorating your front porch with some striking colorful mums will also add to your homes curb appeal.

Fall Dining Alfresco

While the weather is still lovely, why not try entertaining alfresco.  Stone Gable shared

this outdoor table setting which I think is absolutely lovely.  This setting incorporates natural 

and textural elements into the design, like pumpkins, leaves, gourds, berries, and burlap.

Fall Entertaining and Decor Ideas


Make your home smell similar to a "Williams and Sonoma" Store

When you walk into a Williams and Sonoma store it always smells wonderful.  

Want that same scent at home? You can easily Make your Home Smell

Wonderful too. Here's a similar recipe:


Williams and Sonoma Scent      Williams and Sonoma Scent


Almost like the "Williams and Sonoma" Store Scent Recipe

  • 1 lemon
  • Rosemary
  • Water
  • Vanilla

One lemon, cut into slices, a few sprigs of fresh rosemary, a pot filled about 2/3 with water, and 1-2 T vanilla. Simmer on low all day long, and just add more water as needed! You’ll love the wonderful smell of your home!! The mixture will last a few days. Pour it down your drain when it’s done to freshen up the smell of your disposal.
