Welcome the arrival of autumn with these Inexpensive Fall Decorating Ideas!
Fill in those spots and spaces with festive pieces and become inspired to style your home your way.
Decorating has begun, my friends.
I’m buying pumpkins of all shapes and sizes.
I’m crafting new wreaths for the front door every week.
I’m whipping up friendly recipes that will leave your kitchen smelling cinnamon and pumpkin scents.
Fall has taken over the Waite house, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
To get those in the spirit of all things fall, find a craft, recipe, or decor idea and start doing your thing. It’s as simple as that.
Happy decorating, everyone!
Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 86
It’s the first of October. It’s prime time for decorating for the season.
Grab your pumpkins, add those decor options to your cart, make your garlands and wreaths, and together let’s create an unforgettable season and end with a festive home for the block to admire.
Before we get into these inexpensive ideas, I want to share my thoughts and spread my prayers for everyone experiencing Hurricane Ian.
You and your loved ones are on our minds, and we hope for a safe recovery for all of you.
Stay safe, my friends,
Personal Note from Janine
My Father-in-law passed away a couple of weeks ago.
So, it’s been a tough month for our family. We will be heading to Vermont soon to attend his funeral and celebrate his life.
It’s sad letting go of a wonderful man.
He had the dry New England sense of humor. And his accent was like the Pepperidge Farm commercials. My only regret is that we lived far away from him for most of our married life. So, our kids didn’t get to know him too well.
We are blessed to have my mother-in-law, and she is looking forward to our visit. We will enjoy daily walks and fall festivities with her.
It will be a memorable time for my young adult kiddos.
I’ll share our fall trip to Vermont in a couple of weeks on the blog. It will be nice to celebrate the fall and all its beauty after what my husband’s family has been through lately.
Relax and take the time to enjoy family and friends this fall weekend!

This Week’s Tip – Be Creative
Make Your Decorations
I cannot find exactly the decorations I like, so I make them. It is time-consuming, but most times, I save money. If you have cornstalks in your garden, place them on your porch for a fun splash of fall.
Paint your real and faux pumpkins and add thumbnail ghosts or polka dots.
Reuse old decor and maybe add a new ribbon or some seasonal mums.
