When you’re looking for fall decorating ideas with a rustic, country charm, Liz Fourez’s family farm is an especially good place to start.
We sent several of our favorite design bloggers mystery boxes of Home Depot fall decorations to see what fabulous decorating ideas the bloggers would come up with for our Halloween and Harvest Style Challenge. Liz is the author of the DIY and lifestyle blog Love Grows Wild, and these ideas for decorating her home for fall are her contribution to the Style Challenge.
Liz covers a lot of territory. She shows us how she boosted her home’s curb appeal, she carves a pumpkin, and she styles a fall harvest bonfire party for her family. As a bonus, she also has a short tutorial for her easy DIY mason jar lanterns.
Welcome to our harvest party! There are so many things I love about this time of year… watching the leaves change colors, visiting the pumpkin patch with the kids, baking all kinds of yummy fall treats, and of course, football season. But this time of year is also special to my family for another reason… it’s harvest time! Our family farms corn and soybeans here in Indiana and Illinois, so fall is a very busy time for us. There are plenty of long days and late nights spent in the field, and when we finish harvesting our crop for the year, it’s time to celebrate!
So I’ve been busy getting the house ready for a big harvest bonfire, and the front of our house was the first project I tackled.
We have some pretty shrubs along the front of our house, but the cheap, plastic edging that runs the length of the house has definitely seen better days. Now that the heat of summer is over, we decided it would be the perfect time to replace the edging with stone blocks, which added a ton of curb appeal to our home.
