40 Creative Fall Decorating, Entertaining and Recipe Ideas

Happy September friends!

It’s been a long hot summer here in East Texas and I am so ready for fall!  We had our first cool-ish night last night and instead of being 90 degrees at 10:00 PM, it was more like 70’s. That’s our sign that fall is on it’s way…Hopefully :)…

Today I wanted to inspire you with some really creative (and easy) ways that you can fall fluff, decorate, snack and entertain.  I have been surfing through Blogland for fall inspiration and wanted to share with you guys some amazing fall ideas and tutorials that I have come across and can’t wait to try (my list keeps getting longer and longer).  I’m also mixing in all of my past fall projects over the years and all of the links to the tutorials can be found at the bottom of each image.

So let’s jump in to fall!!

    Hi Cyndy,

    Gorgeous post as usual. I don’t know if you have changed something about the system you use or if it’s on my end; however, I have not received any of your emails since the end of June. I’m so glad to know you are o.k. Just let me hear from you at your convenience so I will know if it’s my system and I can go from there.

    Hi Cyndy,
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful ideas and creations. I too am in the Houston area and can’t wait for a little cool down for some for fall decorating and cooking. I am drawn to your front door color, it is stunning.
    Could you share the color and process please? Thank you for the inspiration, I look forward to reading your blog!

    Anyone know if there is an English version of the Pumpkin Smore Cupcakes? When you click on the link it brings you to a site with German or Dutch?
