My Fall Foyer

 I'm joining up with Rhoda's Fall Foyer party and Beth at Stories of A to Z!  Come on in!!  
I made this wreath about two or three years ago and I'm afraid it might be its last year on my door.  It hasn't survived being moved around due to construction so well.  Sad.
 But I love this little tin sign I found...he will for sure stay on to whatever is new that goes on the door next year!
 This is our buffet entry table.  I leave the wire tree up year round and change out the pictures for the holidays or to honor the birthday person.  It's been a fun way to have pictures out and the boys love seeing older snapshots of themselves. 
 I found this trick or treat sign at TaiPan this week and just stuck it in the plant with some feathers.
 My other new sign from TaiPan...I love the black and white stripes.  I got the glittered cat behind it at Target last year on clearance.  Halloween is not my favorite holiday but I like to keep my decorations fun for the minis - not scary at all.  
I don't get into skulls and ghosts - yuck. 

Doesn't everyone have these from the dollar store?  I have a few scattered around.  So cute!
 My $1 garage sale find from this summer - I just tucked him into a dead corner behind the door.  He seems happy there.
 My dining area buffet....
 I leave a lot of these things up through Thanksgiving...weeding things out as Halloween passes.
 My new pumpkins from TaiPain in the Pocketbook.  I thought these were so cool looking! Added a little sign to a jar of acorns and remind little ones!
My mantle - pretty simple
 On top of our entertainment center.  Runner is from Target clearance.
 Our scary dollar store crows.  The nest came from our tree out front.  The boys are excited to take it to school for show and teach.
 That's it, a quick fall tour in our home.  
Thanks for stopping by!   
Looking forward to seeing all the other fall foyers!

Cute fall decor throughout. I don't care much for Halloween stuff either, but you do have to keep the kids happy. Love the crow in the lantern. I need to go to the dollar store.

Everything looks SO nice!! I just love your boo sign in your wreath. Your Trick or Treat spike in your plant is darling too. I just love the unexpected. Fall is my favorite season to decorate.

Kristen that is fun...I love the feather cute and whimsy like, yet warm and Fall like!

I love the acorn jar.
Everything looks so beautiful.
I decorated for Halloween last night. It's funny how different we decorate. You go all out and I'm more simple. I love that! I think that is one of the many reasons why we are such great friends.
love love love,

Hi- I'm a new visitor! I love all of your Fall decorations especially that crow in the lantern. I just started to decorate for Halloween and I have that same table runner from Target. Gotta love Target! Happy Fall!

Hi, I love your decorations but especially your picture tree above your buffet. I was wondering where you got it from?
