Why Didn’t I Think Of That? 2012 Fall Decorating and Party Ideas

by Nancy on October 5, 2012

I love the idea of decorating for different seasons but I find as the years go by I do less of it because I want fewer things in my life, not more. Fall is my favorite season for decorating and I think it’s because if I do it smartly I can combine fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving all at once. Three for the price of one is definitely a just the right thing in my book.

Perusing the internet I see a continuing trend to paint pumpkins and gourds.  I love the idea of painting pumpkins as you don’t have to cut and carve pumpkins, get your hands all goopy  and the pumpkin doesn’t wilt and mold in a couple of days. Here are a couple links to some beautiful, fall decorating ideas, many of them using painted pumpkins.

For those of you who love Halloween some fun finds are:

Oh my goodness!!! Me TOO!!! I used to love putting up decorations for every holiday and season. But it is just so much effort now that I am older. And I don’t want to put them up and take them down and pack them and store the. Now I understand why my mother quit putting out Christmas decorations!

Fall is my favorite season too although I am too lazy to decorate anymore. It’s all I can do to lug up all the Christmas boxes from the basement every year… :)
