Fall farmhouse dining room decor and decorating ideas. How to make a tablescape. How to make a place setting. Farmhouse Fall Dining room video tour.

Halloween is almost here and I desperately need to get some Halloween decor out soon! I felt like it just sneaked up on me this year :) But, until then, and of course after then when all the 'spook' is gone, here's a video tour of my fall dining room! I talk more about what I look for in creating the perfect fall tablescape along with the easiest place settings you can do. We are super casual around her, so truth be told, those come out only for pictures or if we are entertaining those "certain" guests...you know what I'm talking about :) I'm sure you have those 'guests' too! 

Hope you enjoy! Don't forget to ask any questions in the comments if you have any :) 



You can find the rest of the tour in picture form by checking out this post (click here).

Fall Front Room Video Tour

Fall front room video tour. How to decorate for fall in your living room. Fall decor tips

Happy Fall everyone! I decided to do something crazy, new and totally out of character for me. Yep, I decided to start doing videos! Yay! I've been telling myself I needed to start doing them years ago, but just thought it would make things harder and take longer, especially projects. And, I still agree with that :) That being said, I'm going to keep my videos pretty simple, and largely about decor and tips! I'll be doing seasonal room tours of my house all on video. I'll still be sharing my normal decor posts and home tours, too. 

That being said, I'm somewhat new to this whole camera thing apart from doing a few things in college eons ago. So, bear with me. I have already had my critiques and have gotten some tips for the next videos :) So, I promise they'll get better! Also, with every video, I'll be sharing with you in posts such as this where I bought some of the items. If you see something that I don't mention, please let me know.

For today's video, I'll be sharing with you a tour of my front living room all decorated for fall. I'll be going into more detail in the videos than I may not normally do in posts, so hopefully they will be worth the watch! 

Hope you enjoy :)

Outdoor Fall Games: DIY Pumpkin Tic-Tac-Toe


Fall is in the air! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love summer, but there's just something "right" about fall weather that makes you want to sit outside, sip some coffee, and chat away into the night. Fall is when all the fires and s'more roasting happens along with lots of fun fall games. 

I absolutely love outdoor games, and since there's nothing better than Fall weather, I decided it would be perfect to create a fun pumpkin themed outdoor game that would be great for the whole family! But, don't worry, this can easily become an indoor game too :) Here's how you make your very own Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe. 

Supplies: 
  • 10 pumpkins (I chose small fake pumpkins from the craft store, you can use real ones if you want)

  • Chalk Paint. I chose to use Americana Decor Chalky Finish in : Heritage (orange), Vintage (light blue), Everylasting (white), and Relic (dark grey). 
  • 24x24 plywood piece, or wood boards screwed/glued together.
  • Ruler

 Step 1: Paint 5 of the pumpkins with the orange chalk paint. Chalk paint is great, and goes on usually with one coat. You may want to do two coats for fuller coverage.

 Step 2: Paint the other 5 pumpkins with light blue or Vintage.

 Step 3: Using Everlasting or a white chalk paint, carefully paint the stems of all the pumpkins. You will probably need to do 2 coats on these.

 Step 4: Again, using white chalk paint or any other type of acrylic paint, paint your plywood or wood.

 Step 5: Now with a ruler, mark 8" and 16" on each side.

 Step 6: Connect your lines, drawing a grid. I stopped each line about 2 inches from each edge.

 Step 7: Using black paint (Relic), hand paint over the lines. If you don't like the hand painted look, you can easily tape your lines off and use painters tape to help give you straighter lines.
