I do but how much varies by season. I have a ton of fall and Christmas stuff. Other than that, I really just decorate the fireplace.

I just like the changing decor with the seasons and my mom always did it so I guess it just seemed like second nature. I think I have 4 bins of Christmas stuff and maybe 2 for my other decorations so I don’t think I really accumulated all that much extra stuff.

MrsGirlyGirl :  absolutely!! I love seasonal decorating. I start with fall decorations after Labor Day, then add Halloween decor at the beginning of October. After Halloween I put up Thanksgiving decorations and the weekend after Thanksgiving I go all out on Christmas and winter decor. I leave winter/snow decor out until the Valentine’s Day decorations make their appearance. I don’t do much for St. Patrick’s Day but have quite a few Easter/spring decorations. I used to put out more beachy/summery decorations but now I just wait for Independence Day decorations in June/July. Then I have a month or so off before starting all over again. Decorating is one of my favorite hobbies, I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember!

I was just thinking about how my sister in law had amazing decorations and I never was into such stuff. But then, I don’t have any decorations and a storage even if I had some. :/

I decorate for everything pretty much, nothing Out of Town (except for Christmas). But each season or holiday gets a new wreath, new centerpeice layout in the formal dining room and various knick knack type of stuff on the mantel and pillow change outs on the couch and loveseat. Also change out all the candle scents as each season starts– almost time for pumpkin and apple pie candles!

Our house has a pretty neutral pallete and goes with almost everything. That said, the most decorating we’ll probably do is fall (sept-mid nov) with multi colored leaves and pumpkins and then Christmas-winter. I try to have my Christmas decor be more winter themed like snowflakes and evergreens vs just Santa and the gang  ya know… 

My big thing is collecting and displaying antiques and vintage finds. Whether they came from the curb,thrift/antique store or are heirlooms. Those I rotate. 

I enjoy looking at peoples seasonally decorated homes though and I envy their patience for it lol

MrsGirlyGirl :  

 I just started collecting decor to do this. Last year i bought some fall decor (wreath, garland, small pumpkins, little cute signs, throw blanket) from JoAnns and i really loved it! It made the house feel more homey and cozy.

I planned to get spring and summer stuff, but didnt get around to it lol. So for now just fall and christmas haha.

Just the tablecover, placemats, and kitchen dish towels get changed out seasonally and for holidays. 

Christmas is the whole house.

I adore Halloween so I go all out decorating for that every year and then for Christmas (mostly for our kiddo). I’m striving to keep our household trending more toward minimalism than consumerism so we only get one or two new items each year to add to our decorations and we put things out (to give away to others or to donate) so that we maintain a balance.

I do have altars all over the house that I’ll update and refresh as needed, but most people don’t know what they are and they aren’t seasonal.

My husband and I LOVE halloween, so we love doing outside decorations and decorating our porch for that (We have an enclosed porch, so we always set up the fog machine and dress scary to scare some of the kids, the neighborhood kids love our house! So thats always fun)

And I do christmas for sure, and ill typically do a tablescape for thanksgiving but thats about it.
