So many times I think as women and moms we can get sucked into sites like Pinterest or magazine spreads gleaming with perfectly cleaned and decorated homes and feel the pressure to have our lives look the same way. And let’s be honest, that can take all the fun out of decorating! So I asked some real women to share images from their real homes of their fall and Halloween decorations. They are so beautifully real I hope they inspire you today!

Visiting the East Coast during fall, to watch the vibrant display of the changing leaves, is towards the very top of my bucket list. Having been born and raised in Southern California, I’ve only heard about and watched through pictures, the dramatic turning of leaves back east. Here in California, our leaves eventually change color, but at a snail’s pace and with much less excitement or fanfare, because before a tree’s leaves can usually change, they’ve all but fallen off. It’s a sad state of affairs, but at least we have sunshine most of the year to console us. At any rate, this Southern Californian is mildly obsessed with pretty fall leaves that range the color spectrum of burnt orange to dazzling scarlet, and when you combine such natural beauty with the sweetness of babies, well I pretty much can’t handle the cuteness. Take a look at 10 fall leaf inspired DIY’s and handmade items I found online. I may not be able to visit the East Coast for a few years, but at least these amazingly cute items will hold me over.

Halloween is a fun time of year, particularly if you love having an excuse to dress up. And there is little else in this world quite as cute as a little one in costume. That said, Halloween doesn’t really get fun until your kids are a little bit older. They don’t really want to walk very far and you probably don’t want them eating much (if any) candy yet anyway. Because of this, I thought that a Halloween costume party would be a fun alternative for my daughter! We made it a brunch, because the morning is the happiest time of day for little ones and it was a perfect way to let our littles dress up and enjoy a few treats in a perfectly kid-friendly environment. The kids had a great time and it was fun for the adults to catch up too! Check out some of the photos to inspire your own Halloween brunch!
