...for Fall?  I usually do mid-late September, but I'm chomping at the bit!  I want to decorate now!  LOL

So when do you?

I'm sad to see summer go, but I like the fall too & especially Halloween. I usually will put out fall decorations first week or so of September & Halloween shortly after. If you don't put Halloween out early, it's come & gone before you have a chance to enjoy it.

...decorate for fall? That's a thing? I honestly had no clue. Chalk it up to the fact that fall is not all that different from summer in SoCal, but I can't say I've ever changed any of my decorations just because it's fall.

Really?! Wow. I'm in the midwest & don't know anyone who doesn't decorate for Fall :)

I completely change out my living room, hallway, centerpiece on kitchen table as well as kitchen shelves & front porch. Sometimes I switch out towels as well.

I didn't decorate last year, we were packing to move (we moved October 1st) this year I don't know when/if we will. I love decorating but my husband doesn't like them lol

I decorate for Halloween, about a week prior, and take it down a week after..otherwise, I don't decorate for Autumn.

I don't even have time for all that, or spend enough time in my house for it to make any real difference. We may throw up some specific holiday-themed decorations, if anyone has the time or the interest in that, but generally we don't mess with the decorations. I don't think it would have much of a point here, anyway. It's kind of not really important what time of the year it is when it's 75 and sunny on New Year's Eve,

I tend to switch things up in the fall and spring. Its usually curtains, pillows and candles. Nothing fancy.
