Simple Fall Decorating

I've never been a big one for decorating for fall. I love decorating for Halloween and always preferred spending money on Halloween decor rather than fall. This year as summer weather has drug on, I decided if I decorated for fall maybe a little fall weather would follow. I decided to decorate with items I already had or items that I could get great deals on.
The first table that you see in my home when you walk in the door is my DIY Restoration Hardware Coffee Table I built a few months ago.

I try to always keep it decorated all fancy since it's the first thing guests lay eyes on.

Since I change it out so often, I try to find inexpensive decor. I reuse items in different vignettes, use coupons, and items from thrift stores/yard sales to decorate.

The table runner I used is actually a throw from IKEA.
I got the large and small white pumpkins at the end of Fall last year while on clearance. The horse and the candlesticks came from Michael's at 50% off.
The old clock came from a vintage sale, and the leaves were from a craft project last year ... as well as the orange and silver mercury glass pumpkins.
I'm so excited to be able to bring out the leggings, sweaters and boots soon! I love snuggling up with the pups with a fuzzy blanket next to the fire.
