{Guest Post: Diaries of Do'ers}

Hey gals! I'm Hilary and I hold a small piece of this awesome blogosphere over at  Diaries of Do'ers which I started to document me and the hubby's newlywed life and new home adventures. It's turned into a general lifestyle blog involving my love for great deals, decorating successes & failures, furniture flips, and still-newlywed life {ahem, my trial & errors with meal-making}. Please swing by and say hi, I'd love to 'meet' you!

With the arrival of the cooler seasons just around the corner, I thought I'd share some of my favorite Pinterest-inspired items Fall items that keep the season classy
 - it doesn't have to be all orange & black!

For the sources of all below, they can be found on my board here!

Orange is great and all... but it's all about the WHITE pumpkins 
to keep things light and bright. 
And best of all, you can use them into Thanksgiving 
without feeling like you still have HALLOWEEN decorations up.

You can certainly use these as centerpieces - orange just might be too much 
but these keep it classy

Natural decor

And again with the natural elements, are you seeing a pattern? :)
I love to fill my jars with the fillers from target, but you could use
real cones and nuts as well

Moving on to the front porch...

Mums, mums, mums - love the color

Black & White Monogram Pumpkins!

Last but not least, this wreath is my fave. 
And you can always switch up small details (like removing the little pumpkins) 
to use it into other seasons

Of course...if you're dying for some actual COLOR in your home,
you can always resort to the candy corn jar - I do this ever year ;)

I hope you'll stop by over here, and please don't forget to leave me a comment
so I can follow you back!

Selena - thanks so much for having me today!



  1. I'm a big fan of doing fall vs. Halloween specific decor. Love all of these finds!

  2. I'm seriously going to decorate for fall when I get home on Monday, lol! So ready! Thanks for guest posting today, love these ideas!


Thank you so much for reading. I love your comments!
