Fall Home Tour 2019: Pink Pumpkin Patch

Hi and Happy Fall everyone!!  I am so excited to show you our fall decorations this year because I changed up the color palette a little bit – to fall pinks!  And I know it seems like pink isn’t the first color that comes to mind for fall decorations, but it coordinates beautifully with spice-y oranges, and navy blues.  So, if you’re looking for some autumn inspiration and fall decorating ideas, you’ve come to the right place.  Welcome to our Fall Home Tour 2019:  Pink Pumpkin Patch!!

***NOTE*** I’ve Sprinkled in 8 Fall Decorating Ideas that will help you add “in” some pink to your fall home decor.

So, why did I choose shades of pink for fall decor this year?  I have been wanting to try some different colors to punch out all of the blues in our house, and knew that shades of pink would give me a lot of options.

Since I already decorated with orange and navy (in the dining room), and blue and yellow (in the foyer) – for our fall home tour last year, I wanted to try something fresh.  And Pink delivered!!

Check out the pink color chart with names below.  Isn’t it amazing how wide a spectrum you can cover with all of the different pink hues?

And here are some orange hues below. 

You can now see which pink shades above (have a little orange in them) and could blend or merge with some of the orange shades below – right?

So, here is my color palette with shades of pink only.

But…. I still wanted to add some of the orange hues, while keeping the entire house looking cohesive.

So here is the color palette with some of my spice-y oranges sprinkled in.  It just seems to warm up the color palette, while still keeping the “pink” undertones.  

What do you think?   Now, I can mix and match these items throughout the house.

 Here are my 3 color palettes:

  1.  Fall Dining Room –  one tone (Pinks Only)
  2.  Fall Entry –  combined tones (Pinks & Oranges)
  3.  Fall Living Room and Kitchen – coordinated tones (Pinks + Oranges) – love it!!   

Plus I can add shades of purple or red during the Christmas season, and this “fall” palette can easily transition into our “Christmas” palette!  Win-win!!

  • So, let’s get to the good stuff – the Home Tour and 8 Fall Decorating Ideas!!



In the dining room, I decided to keep the color palette one tone so that there would be more contrast against the navy and white.  I also used softer shades of pink but paired it with velvet fabric, to add warmth and texture.

If you go back to the pink color chart above, you will notice that I chose more”blue” pinks that lean closer to the purple side (like lavender and lilac) for this room. 

I wanted to use pinks that would blend in with my lavender flowers.



The pink velvet table runner is the perfect color for the lavender flowers, and really grounds the entire fall tablescape.   It allows me to decorate tone-on-tone with the pumpkins, and makes the white wooden tray centerpiece “pop.”



Sprinkled throughout the house, are the adorable pink velvet pumpkins with rose gold stems.  I love them!!  These were the items that started the whole “pink pumpkin patch” color palette.


I kept all of the other decorations white or natural – like the wooden beads, pine cones, fall candles, and gourds.





This combination was my favorite fall decoration this year!!  I fell in love with these white metal wreaths (clearance at Hobby Lobby), and added this gorgeous pink velvet ribbon to attach to the side chairs.  

I bought 6 of the white magnolia leaves wreaths, so that I could use them somewhere else in the future.  It’s always good to have decorations that can transition into other seasons.


I attached the ribbons to the top portion of the white slip-covered chairs with stick pins, but would use safety pins when entertaining guests.  You wouldn’t want to accidentally poke someone (well depends on who it is – LOL)!!


Here you can see the lavender floral stem with the pink runner, pumpkin, and ribbon.  They are all different shades and depths, but blend beautifully together.

The blush pink flowers were actually one of my favorite decorating items for the entire Pink Pumpkin Patch also!!  I love how they are lighter at the petals and darker at the stem – this adds a ton of dimension.

Plus, it was a great way to connect the entry to the living room.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match colors that aren’t exactly the same, as long as they are similar in depth (or darkness).

The orange shades in the football sign and throw blanket play well with the oranges AND pinks because they are all a medium depth in color. 

They are also surrounded by a good amount of white and blue accents, which act as grounding elements (or neutrals). 

Show and share the Love!!

Fall is not just a season – it’s really a feeling!!  And our fall home would not be complete without a daily reminder of how grateful we feel for all of God’s blessings.  Amen!!




I decorated with pink shades in the living room, and orange shades in the kitchen.  Since both of these rooms are connected – open concept – I wanted them to at least coordinate with each other.

And I’m so happy with my blue and white rug – right?  You can tell that all of the navy and white in both rooms, helps to unite the pinks with the oranges.

I used a variety of throw pillows:  rose pink, blush pink, fun pink pom-poms, and ones with pink tassels in the living room.   The different shades and styles really help unite both rooms’ color palettes, because they coordinate with the plaid pillow in the kitchen.




And of course a soft, pink buffalo check throw blanket brings just the right look and feel to the living room.  How can you have fall decorations without at least one buffalo check item – right?





These dark pink (magenta) and white vases were just the right color and size for my fall bookshelf styling this year.  I love that they have a lot of white so that the hot pink and coral flowers really pop!!




And my farmhouse wagon from Round Top…. knew he’d be paired with something floral and glam for fall – LOL!!

And speaking of farmhouse glam…..can you see the shimmer of the glitter on the white pumpkin candles??  Love these little candles!!




Don’t forget about storage bins, photos boxes, or baskets to pop in some pink to your fall color palette.  I put one bin underneath each of our end tables to hold magazines and remotes.

And those rose gold handles – swoon!!


Here are some pictures of the kitchen where I used blue, white and orange tones.  I really love how these rooms came together this year.  

Don’t forget about fruit:  apples, pears, and peaches all can lean orange- to-pink, which are perfect for fall decorating.  





Just to make things a little fun, I decided to style our fall bookshelf 3 different ways.  So, choose your favorite by leaving your vote in the comments section below!!

Can’t wait to see which one y’all pick!!

Fall Home Tour 2018

Hello Fall and Welcome to our Fall Home Tour 2018!!  It was definitely bittersweet this year setting up fall decorations throughout our house since we are just now getting settled back in.  It’s hard to believe that it was just a little over a year ago, that Hurricane Harvey hit TX and caused thousands of houses to flood, including our home. 

I will never forget that I proudly posted my very first blog article Blue and White Fall Dining Room – on Friday, August 26th, 2017, and then our house flooded that Monday, August 29th.  So for that reason, I think the fall season will always hold a special place in my heart.

*** Fall Home Tour 2019:  Pink Pumpkin Patch, 9 Holiday Table Decorating Tricks:  Using What You Have, and 12 Best Coastal Farmhouse Dining Tables are now ready!! ***

Looking Back to Fall 2017:

I have shed some tears while looking back at those first three fall posts I did from last year…..  BUT…… it has also been a time of healing, gratefulness, and joy. 

That terrible experience has actually showed us the true meaning of the words “blessed” and “thankful.”  I could not dream of a better place to begin the season of thanksgiving than to have a fresh beginning/fresh start – LIVING in our”new” home. 

****FYI*** Click Here (Fall Foyer 2017) or Here (Fall Living Room 2017) if you want to see the changes we made and compare last year’s posts to this year. 

Looking forward to Fall 2018:

Our family is finally getting back to normal – haha!!, and I am so excited for the new plans God will have for us going forward 🙂  Now let’s get to it – Fall Home Tour 2018!!

Fall Foyer


Loving the yellow??!!  Me too!!  In my foyer I decided to use golden & mustard yellows, and then mixed in a leopard print ….. love how it came together. 

***TIP***  Add yellow by using :  a wreath, pom pom flowers, and cable knit throw blanket. 

The golden tones give the blues a punch of color, and of course a little wow factor.  I also mixed in some bronze and gold tones to soften the bold yellows.







And of course of my “LOVE & HUGS” signs!!!  I threw in the cute little white pumpkin along with a couple of bronze berry stems to pick up the bronze in the letters.  I also added the bronze berry and pine cone stems to the candle sconces on the bottom shelf (see below).





I will post a tutorial on painting my World Market Console Table blue soon- it really changed the look of my entryway.  I just need to add some knobs to the drawers to finish it off!!



On the love pillow below, I added this little dot and leopard bow for a punch of gold tones.  I simply pinned it to the pillow so that I can remove it when fall is over.  I wanted to add something to tie in the yellow, but not be too matchy-matchy!!







So, I changed out my lamp shades (to navy) and table runner (to blue buffalo check) for the fall time and then added in some other goodies. 

I will do a separate post on Setting a Fall Table in 8 Easy Steps later this week!!  It will show you how to decorate using layers…..going from simplistic decor to over-the-top decor.  I did have a TON of fun with the dining room!!







Obviously, this is a view from the over-the-top design (no pun intended) – which I personally love!!  It’s so fun to mix different patterns using similar shades of blue for BIG impact!!  This design is for those of you who want a little drama to your fall decor!!







***TIP*** Here is a different look:   by changing the direction of the buffalo check runner…. you can really simplify the design.  I also added the cute wooden tray to hold all of the goodies in, and to drape the beads.  This design gives the room a more stately, elegant look. 

Which one do you prefer?











*** A little quiz for you. ***  Do you like Option 1) Blue Vase & white pumpkin with the sign?  or Option 2) Orange pumpkin with the sign?  Shoot me your feedback in the comments section below!!  Can’t wait to see which one is the winner!!

Option 1)


Option 2)




I used some additional leopard ribbon for my iron pumpkin to give it a custom look and to tie it in to the living room decor as well.  It’s kind of like modern farmhouse meets vintage glam!! 

***TIP*** Leopard print ribbons & fabrics are great to use during the fall season because they tie in the warm orange, yellow, and brown tones….. ALL in one print.




***UPDATE***   I finally found the throw pillows and rug that I needed to complete the living room and kitchen – YAY!!!   

I love how the dark blue colors pull in the colors from the plaid throw (on the ladder), and pick up both the blue and spice-y orange tones in the kitchen. 

Sometimes all you need is one perfect item to blend all of the elements together.















I hope you will be inspired to have the fall home of your dreams!!
