Our farmhouse fall decor including piano and tabletop decorations is simple yet screams “I love autumn!”
As this is our first fall in our farmhouse, I was most excited to decorate for the season. Fall has always been a highlight of the year for me. The cool evenings, the cozy sweaters, the pumpkin spice – and the beautiful trees. In fact, fall might be my very favorite. I just try not to think about the season that comes next or the smell of manure being spread on the fields since it’s harvest time around here. 😉 It’s an exciting time of year as the leaves start to fall and I am excited to share with you how I’ve decorated our home simply.

When To Put Out Fall Decor
This was a tough question for me. When I was decorating our home we had gone from a few chilly weeks in Ohio to a downright heat wave. It’s hard to think about cool evenings when the humidity is so high your air conditioner is on. Nonetheless, I was ready and if you’re ready – then I say decorate! No one can make the decision but you, right?
Speaking of timing, fall is also a great time to make sure your family has practiced fire safety. Here’s a few tips to practice fire safety this season – as well as a view of how I decorated and created our fall decor.
Since we do not have a fireplace, which is odd for a home our age, I opted to decorate our piano in it’s place. This simple wooden box I bought at an auction this summer for just a few dollars was the perfect rustic farmhouse touch. I filled it with pumpkins and gourds that I can use year after year. I’m practical like that. I also thought these little burlap pumpkins were just too cute to pass up.
Using burlap I had leftover from a party and a few other details I found, the piano came together nicely with muted fall colors.
My favorite however, is how the tabletop came together. Another auction find, the metal tray was only a few dollars. I have no idea what it was used for originally, but I love it. I found a blanket and used it as a tablecloth since I couldn’t find a tablecloth I liked better. Putting a few candlesticks with candles and then randomly piling on the pine cones and pumpkins – it took less than a few minutes to pull this all together!
What do you have planned for decorating this fall? While you’re feeling inspired take a few moments to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and practice other fire safety tips. Then you can sit back, relax and enjoy this beautiful season of color!
