November is the time of year that we all start thinking about the holidays. We start bringing the boxes down from the attic or up from the basement or in from the garage with all the markings, "Xmas Stuff", "Lights", "Xmas Paper & Ribbon" and so on and so forth. Our "Thanksgiving stuff" is usually already inside, but hidden, tucked away all neatly in drawers and closets.... it's not much, barely would  fill a tote but, we need it for our Thanksgiving dinner table.

You probably have a turkey platter (and it has a turkey motif on it) and the Thanksgiving themed table runner but there are always odds and ends you need to shop for. Fall foliage and those totally necessary pumpkin scented candles. And how about that Fall Wreath you made last year tucked away some place you just can not remember.

Well this year instead of decorating for "the one day" why not the whole entire month? Fall colors are all around us outside this time of year so why not bring a little of that color-warmth inside. Pantone's 2013 Fall Color selection can help. From Teals to Purple and Reds. Orange to Chocolate Brown. Check out the pictures below to get great ideas on accessories like vases and pillows that you may already own in these fall colors and pull them all together in your living and dining areas to create your own one of a kind November Fall Home for you and your guests this Thanksgiving.

Thanks for taking a peek!

How about adding a few pumpkins to your porch with your address stenciled on the front?

Welcome FALL ! Beach House decorating with the color ORANGE!

Let's see....we have 28 days until Thanksgiving and 53 days until Christmas! 
Okay did that freak anyone out? I bet it did. 2013 has flown by...November 1st is here and we are all asking ourselves,
 "Where did the time go"? 

Well if you are like me you are probably thinking about gearing up for Christmas. But whoa! Slow down we still have Thanksgiving to think about. Before we all make our homes look like Santa's workshop let's take the next 30 days and spice it up with some Fall color........

 In the mood for a little Orange?
