Happy October 1st!
Welcome to the linky party
for Favorites on the First.

Share your fall decor
with us here 
for the next three days.

How are YOU
celebrating the season?

My old rusty orange sap buckets turned jack-o-lanterns mixed with mums.

Even though we all 
have the same basic 
ingredients to decorate with ---
it is always fun to see
what creative twists
 everyone comes up with to
bring out the best 
 of the season.

So what have you done 
to share the season
at your home?

Please link up below to share
your holiday decor.

It's a party!
The more the merrier!

Layers and textures and COLOR make a fall statement here on the front table.

Just came back from 
a long weekend in Vermont.
What a treat THAT was!
Will be posting photos on the glorious colorful
scenes from that trip later this week!

Hi Alison! Thanks for hosting your "Favorites On the First" for us...I am so excited to have a post to enter this month. I love all of your photos but the one with the massed flowers (roses?) is just to die for...where did you take that photo?
Can't wait to see your photos of Vermont...it is still like summer here in Alabama...hard to get in the Fall groove.

I am slowly getting into fall. Here is Southern IL it is still a balmy 85. It looks like fall though the trees are starting to color and it is dreary. Thanks for hosting!

I love your fall decor Alison and it's so nice to see that you like orange in your home as I do. :) There's a lot of white out there today but orange goes well in my decor. I like the old wood chair with the blanket and pumpkin on it. Hugs, Pamela

This is my favorite season...until spring arrives, then spring becomes my focus. But seriously, this is such a lovely time of the year.
I love Hallie and the pretty throw she's sitting on.
