Adding A Little Autumn To My Home

(Disclosure: I received compensation and products to help me write this post but all thoughts are my own.)

I rarely decorate for Fall. It’s not because I don’t want to, but because it’s a crazy time of year and after I get out of my beginning-of-school fog it’s already part of the way into the season and I feel like decorating is pointless at that point. This year though, Glade invited me to add a little Autumn to my home so with their help I added a few accents that really give my home a seasonal feeling.

I found a little “Happy Harvest” sign that is perfect because it will take me past Halloween and into Thanksgiving season. I bought a box of mini pumpkins and pinecones to decorate a table and then can re-use them for the boys Fall sensory table. I also bought a tray with leaves along the edge of it but haven’t yet figured out how I’m going to incorporate that in the room.

The other brown decoration on the table in both pictures is an air freshener. Doesn’t look like it though does it? It’s the newly designed Glade® Sense & Spray® Automatic Freshener that I wrote about a few weeks ago. I love it and it is meshing well with my seasonal decor.

This week I have the Cashmere Woods scent in it and it’s my favorite scent I have tried so far. I like that the air freshener is on a timer and when it senses movement it automatically freshens our room every 20 minutes. It’s nice to be cuddling on the couch with my family and have the room smell so wonderful all the time.

I’ve realized that it doesn’t cost much to add a few seasonal pieces to my home but it really makes a difference in how welcoming our home is. How do you decorate for Fall in your home? Do you have any tips to share on how you change your decor without spending a ton of money? I’d love to hear them!

Keep Your Home Smelling Fresh With Glade® {Giveaway}

With a child still in pullups it’s hard to keep my house smelling as fresh as I’d like it to. I often rely on air fresheners to keep the air smelling nice. I received a newly designed Glade® Sense & Spray® Automatic Freshener to try in my home and after a few days of using it I know that this is one product that is going on my must-have list.

I love that Glade’s new modern styles fit in with my home decor. With a 360 degree sensor they are perfect for every room in my home. The scent canister is hidden inside so nobody would guess it was an air freshener.

For those who like to explore different scents there are many to try with this new air freshener. I have Clean Linen in mine which smells like freshly washed laundry. Lavender & Vanilla, Pure Vanilla Joy, and Hawaiian Breeze sound delightful as well.

Glade Scented Oil Candle and Decorative Glass Holder Review

Recently I had the chance to try Glade’s new line of scented oil candles These candles are each in their own decorative glass holders. I like how the holders are refillable so that if I find a design I really like I can keep it and just buy the refills. I received the lavender & vanilla one and I love how the whole room was filled with the scent. Two and a half hours in and my candle was still burning. The packaging says that each refill burns for approximately two to three hours.

In September and October, Glade held a contest asking people to design candle holders. A winner will not be announced until 2011 but you can check out their design gallery to see the contestant’s designs and give a “thumbs up” to your favorite one. Below is the one I created:
