This weekend my daughter’s cheered her last football game at her school and both of my teens are in school and trying to embrace this new normal.
With all the uncertainty and unknowns happening in the world right now we are trying to embrace life to it’s fullest.
My kids are nervous and anxious at the same time because They don’t know what to expect and they’re hoping for the best however, they are hopeful and excited as well.
They are hopeful things will change and get back to normal but they are excited to have some structure and see friends and teachers that they haven’t seen since March of 2020.
I pray that everyone gets through the fall months and may God hold all of us closely during this new normal and help us to have Grace.
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year and this time of year is no different who is ready to start decorating and preparing for the cold winter months? Yes football is slowly leaving fall plans but harvesting, preserving, sweaters, cider, hayrides will be here before we know it.
Why an Easy Fall Kitchen on a Budget?
OK, I budget my Fall Decorations every year and give myself very little because I love a challenge and searching for the best deals is my “jam”. I know right!
Of course, when I enter any store I disregard my budget and load my cart way over my budget.
I love shopping at some stores but, I find the best things are farmers markets and craft shows because lets be honest you can get more bang for your buck.
I love going up and down the ideas keeping in mind the trends, basics and of course the classics.
To create my simple, minimal, Fall Farmhouse Kitchen I either shopped my home, thrift store, local farmers market and craft shows. After evaluating and deciding here is a list of some items I will be including in my kitchen this fall.
To Create a Simple Farmhouse Kitchen in the Fall does not have to be overwhelming and hard to do; Listed below are my favorites to decorate with without breaking the bank:
Natural Elements to Decorate a Fall Kitchen on a Budget
Eucalyptus is gorgeous by itself and just a timeless piece of greenery that goes with ever season. If you buy or grow fresh eucalyptus dries out nicely. I love adding this greenery around my home all season.
Sunflowers I grow in my gardens.
I never grew sunflowers until spring of 2020 and let me tell you they are easy! These big, bright flowers are in full bloom in early fall and of course they need to be in any space.
Apples are in in abundance here in the Midwest. Just buying, picking or growing a harvest of apples and placing in your kitchen gives an easy fall kitchen on a budget plus you can eat them.
Squash or Gourds we harvest here on the farm; so you will see them all over my kitchen in the fall. I love cooking and baking with squash and this is an inexpensive way to decorate your fall kitchen.
Pumpkins are gorgeous and give a fairy tale vibe to any space in and out of your homestead. If you do not grow your own pumpkins you can hit up some farm stand or local grocery stores and find all shades of pumpkins.
Mums are something I dabbled in and I am glad I did. With patience and work mine are now reappearing year after year. Fresh cut mums look great in a kitchen display in any vessel.
Herbs and Drying Herbs are everywhere in my kitchen especially because I want to enjoy the greatness all year. Drying herbs are fun to make teas and rubs. Hanging dry herbs in my kitchen it pretty intense during the fall months. In my kitchen during the fall months you will see parsley, lavender, sage, etc. I simple use a bit of twine and tie to the ends and hang upside down to dry.
Create a Fall Kitchen with Vintage and/or Antique Finds
White Pitchers are so super but, make a statement. You can find many great white pitchers at second had stores in varies sizes. Display fall blooms within your pitchers on counters make a great look to any kitchen. Clustering pitchers together in varies sizes can be a nice touch in your space on a shelf.
Tin or Galvanized measuring cups are great to add to your kitchen this fall. Everyone is in their kitchen’s creating fall treats and meals; why not display these pretty pieces tools. Adding sunflowers to a tin or galvanized measuring tool is a classic touch. Get creative and examine what you already have within your kitchen space.
Fall Kitchen on a Budget with a Homemade Bake Goods and Treats
Fresh Breads or Muffins is very popular around here on the homestead. Baking is filled all day in no particular order from sourdough cinnamon rolls to sourdough chocolate pumpkin muffins. Displaying bake goods in glass canisters, jars and cake stands is a great way to decorate on a budget this fall.
Fall Candles in scents that remind me of fall is a luxury to add to the homestead. Making soy and beeswax with my favorite fall scents such as cinnamon, clove, orange and nutmeg to name a few is perfect. Candle making is a couple hour process but, worth it!
Fall Tea and/or Coffee with Creamer give me all the fall vibes. Adding chai, hot coco and pumpkin spice creamer gets me always in the fall mood on a limited budget.
