Fall Decor in the Backyard

With the warm weather last weekend, it was the perfect time to sit and enjoy our backyard cabana area.
 
By adding a few fall accents and cozy comforts, the space was spruced up for the change of season.

 
The leaves on the trees in the woods behind our yard are starting to change colour and make a lovely backdrop to our seating area.
 
Whether it's relaxing with a glass of wine...
 
...with a great magazine to savour
 
...or inviting some friends over for a chat, we are really enjoying our backyard this year.
 
I've added a few fall décor items to enhance the space.  On the firebowl cover, a small fall bouquet and two lanterns sit atop an orange napkin.
 
On top of the "storage table" that hides the propane tank for the firebowl, a pumpkin, candleholders and bouquet add some colour.
 
A full view of the cabana with attached deck.
 
Inside the cabana, the corner shelves are decorated for the season.
 
A faux sunflower arrangement in a pitcher sits on the shelf under the clock.
 
A lantern with some other décor enhances the other corner.
 
And a similar display is created here.
 
As the sun goes down, the outdoor lighting ( strung along our clothesline) becomes more visible.
 
Lighting the firebowl adds light, warmth and ambiance to the cooler evenings of fall.
 
It makes the area seem so much cozier.
 
When we light the firebowl, the cover that usually sits on it gets moved to this storage table which is where the propane tank is hidden.
 
Aaahh, it is wonderful chilling out here!
 
And if we get too chilled, there's a bunch of extra throws to snuggle up in.
 
Mini-lights inside the dining area of the cabana are perfect for making that space feel special too.
 
In my next post, I'll show the details of the fall tablescape I've created out here.
 
Hope you've enjoyed seeing the fall accents I've added to our backyard.

Words. I have no words. DANG, woman!!! You have that space looking like a million bucks! I am pinning!!! My Mom has a lovely space on the rear side of her home that could benefit from some of the ideas you have here. I wish I could talk her into getting a fire pit. Those things rock! We would have one if we had a patio. We (meaning my husband) are afraid to have one on the wood deck. Sigh! :-(

It's amazing how you so beautifully transformed this from the ultimate summer fun spot to this gorgeous autumn retreat!

I'm inspired me to sweep the leaves off of the deck and make our backyard a little more welcoming before the snow flies. Such a beautiful space you've created here!
