Welcome to my Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour!

This year you’re in for a treat. I’m participating in two fall home tours. Normally, I wouldn’t do two tours of my home since that would be redundant, and decorating one’s home twice for the same season seems like a bit much. However, Jessica from Four Generations One Roof  reached out to me and asked if I wanted to be a part of the first-ever HomeGoods Fall Home Tour. I just couldn’t resist, so I decided to challenge myself and put a little twist on the typical home tour.

Now that the dining room table is set, the porch is decked out, and the kitchen has been stocked, I’m going to show you around. However, this tour has an entertainment theme. Not only will you see these spaces of my home styled for the season, but you will also find that I’ve tucked in several yummy recipes and a tutorial for a fun craft project. Today, I’ll walk you around the spaces. (This is a tour, after all.) Then, during this week and next, I’ll share the recipes and the DIY tutorial. Are you ready!?

If you’re on the HomeGoods Fall Home Tour and stopping over from KariAnne of Thistlewood Farms – Welcome! KariAnne’s home is as delightful and happy as she is. It’s one tour I never want to miss. Bravo, KariAnne! If this is your first stop on the tour, and you have no idea what I’m talking about, please head on over to Four Generations One Roof. That’s where the tour begins so you can click through from there.

One more thing, and then we can get on with the tour. HomeGoods was kind enough to sponsor this tour. (Thanks, HG!) They also gave each blogger a $100 HomeGoods Gift Card to give away! Before clicking away, be sure enter to win below. Once you’ve looked around here, visit the other bloggers on the tour to see their homes and enter their giveaways.That means eight spaces filled with fall inspiration and eight chances to enter to win!

Okay, I think we have everything covered. Come on in!

(Per usual, I’m mostly going to let the pictures do the talking. There are quite a few of them. Enjoy!)

To kick off the tour, I thought a cocktail would be in order. Over on my bar cart, I have everything set up for a sensational, seasonally inspired sip.

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

Being a fan of sangria, I whipped up a big pitcher of Apple Pie Sangria. (You can get the recipe here.)

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

White wine, salted caramel vodka, fresh Honeycrisp apples, and a few other simple ingredients make this the perfect refresher for an autumn afternoon. With fresh apples a plenty, sangria is a natural choice for the fall.

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

I’m serving the sangria in these copper Moscow mule mugs. Please don’t tell gold, but copper might be my new BFF. You’re going to see it pop up several times on this tour.

With drinks in hand, (Cheers, by the way!), let’s take a look at my dining room table.

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

Shades of green, orange, and copper were the inspiration for this tablescape. After picking up my copper mugs, I found these beautiful rose gold pumpkins (at HomeGoods, of course!) and the theme was set.

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

Coupled with bowls and napkins in a bright marigold color, my gradient of hues was complete.

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

Speaking of napkins, I had fun embellishing these with a leaf pattern at the bottom. While they would have been wonderful on their own, I always say, “Beauty is in the details.” A trail of leaves ties in the season and the other colors in the room. A tutorial for how I made these can be found HERE.

To dress up my place setting, I added an apple (complete with leaves) to each bowl on the table. I was so fortunate that the apples on my espaliered apple tree were ripe for the picking. They make the perfect accessory.

A variety of succulents and fresh flowers add life and color to the table.

Before we move on, I must point out the vases. They are drinking glasses that I found at HomeGoods. Their amber tone is perfect for the table. I just filled them with grocery store flowers and greens from the yard. Scattered around my entertaining areas, they quickly pull the spaces together.

Of course, every table needs a delicious dish. Inspired by some colorful pasta, I created this Fall Harvest Pasta Salad. (You can get the recipe HERE.) Who says pasta / macaroni salads are just for summer? I’m breaking the rules today.

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

Pasta with broccoli, roasted sweet potatoes, pine nuts, dried cranberries, and goat cheese makes for an extremely flavorful combination. You won’t believe how tasty it is. I highly recommend giving this dish a try this autumn season.

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

Moving outside, on the porch, I made a major switch for the season. New pillows in a brown and orange plaid with a leather back feel warm and cozy. I also tossed in a plaid throw for the cool fall nights to come.

I likewise replaced a few of my summer plants with mums and decorative cabbage. And even though it’s still a bit early for pumpkins around these parts, I did manage to get my hands on a few. I think they really bring the look together.

Out on the porch, I’m serving an easy-to-make appetizer of cream cheese, caramel, toffee, and apple slices: Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Spread. It is so delicious. And since you can make it in under five minutes (seriously), it might be your new go-to fall snack. Get the recipe here.

In the past I didn’t change up this porch very much for the fall, so I’m ever-so pleased with how it looks this year. I can definitely see myself sitting out here and enjoying early-morning coffees and late-afternoon sangrias. Who wants to join me?

My kitchen also got some love for fall. I continued the theme of orange in this space. The color is a natural choice for the season, but it also helps to mesh all of my entertaining spaces.

I brought in more fresh apples and more copper because I just can’t seem to get enough.


And since every space needs a touch of quirky, this “Fat Pants” print was perfect.

I am so in love with these hammered copper pots that I picked up at HomeGoods. They make beautiful seasonal plant holders. They have jack-o-lantern faces on them, but I turned them so the faces aren’t visible right now. (Closer to Halloween I’ll turn them around, pop out the plants, and tuck in a candle.)

Fall Entertaining-Around-My-House Tour| inspiredbycharm.com

And since no event would be complete without dessert, in the kitchen I’m serving up baked pumpkin donuts tossed in cinnamon and sugar. (Yes, I heard your gasp. But don’t worry. They are baked, so they are healthy, right? Ack, who cares!? Bring on the pumpkin spice!)

With dessert served, it’s almost time to go. However, let me show you around my entryway quickly before you leave.

To dress up my barn doors, I added a pair of matching wreaths.

More fresh flowers and a carved wooden pumpkin on my entry table give a welcoming seasonal touch.

    • Cecile at

  • Jeanette at

    Loving the copper!!! I am taking my copper out of storage, blowing off the dust and getting creative. Oh, I will be checking later in the week for the recipe for the pumpkin donuts. YUM!!!! Time to sew up some fall pillow for my porch, so inviting to sip sangria on the porch and munching on pumpkin donuts

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      It’s it amazing how “trends” come full circle. Not that copper ever when out-of-style, but it’s certainly having a moment right now.

      And the donuts are coming to the blog tomorrow. Stay tuned. πŸ™‚

      • Diana at

        Today is the first time seeing everything you do. Your home is beautiful and all your recipes look wonderful, I’m having a girls fall luncheon and will be making all these yummy recipes. Can you recommend something to have with the pasta salad that would be fallish? Would love your ideas!

        • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

          Thanks so much, Diana! I always think some sort of sandwich works well with pasta salad. You could also do some seasonal flatbreads for something different.

          Hope that helps!

          xo Michael

  • Bonnie at

    I love your beautifully Fall decorated home. Your dining room table is gorgeous with the carved legs and the little “pass-through” from your kitchen to your dining room is so quaint. I love Home Goods and love to browse there and just dream whenever I have free time. The carved, wood pumpkin on your entry way table is one of my favorites also as well as all of the copper accents. I’m signing up to receive your emails. I don’t want to miss the recipes that you’re sending as well as decorating ideas. Thanks so much!

  • Bridget W at

    Fall has always been my favorite season, and you represented very well! I’ve loved copper since the 80’s but trends changed & I stopped using it. So happy to see you bring it back. Great tour! Everything is beautiful; very warm & inviting.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Isn’t it funny how trends come and go? Hopefully you saved a few of your copper pieces. Time to dust them off and bring them back out.

It just makes me all happy inside to peruse the little glimpses into your life. Thank you so much for sharing your personal, and creative aspects with us!! When people walk into my home the first word of description is “Cozy”. Then they comment, ” this home should be called a cottage and placed in the mountains. Your home reminds me a lot of mine in the way you decorate and the visions that you see. I love this representation of Fall that you have put together. I can almost smell the pumpkin caramel ginger spices wafting through your home. Oh, wait…maybe that is because it’s wafting through mine! LOL. Nonetheless, THANK YOU for this beautifully inspiring blog. I am a dedicated FFL (fan for life)!

The colors alone scream fall, not to mention all the details. You are so right on about the little things that really make a difference. Not to sound like a weird stalker, but I just know I could come for a visit and we would sit down with some of that yummy sangria and totally have a great time? I don’t want to offend the others taking part in today’s tour, but for me you really hit it out of the park?????

    My mouth was literally wAtering looking at that mule of apple pie sangria. I had to go to the kitchen and cut up an apple to eat to tide me over. Lol. Everything is so pretty and I really, really can’t wait for the recipes. I made your recent zucchini recipe and my husband agreed it was yummy so looking forward to more yummies ?

I can’t wait to make that cream cheese & caramel appie with the apples and hear all about your pasta salad! Thank you for such an enjoyable tour and enjoy your home all fall-ified!

  • Lisa | Shine Your Light at

    Oh! I forgot to mention: Moscow Mule copper mugs are fantastic for making little floral arrangements. Mine are never available for drinking out of because I always steal them for cuttings from the yard or stems I’ve cut down! Love all the copper in your decorating!

  • Marsha Williams at

    Nice touches throughout. Very eye catching.

    I’m crazy for copper too this season. I even found some old copper pieces that my mom had. Your home looks beautiful. I want that pasta salad and the pumpkin donuts right now Love the green cabinet you have. What is you wall color in the dining room? It reminds me of BM Stormy Sky. Thanks for the chance to view everything.

  • Debby at

    Love everything about your decorating !! I am on the hunt for new chairs for my breakfast room table. I was thinking metal, but now love your black chairs even more. Any idea where I might find them?

  • Priscilla at

    Your home is gorgeous. It must have been so much fun decorating for the season.

  • Sheila J. at

    Fabulous! I’m ready for fall now! Noticed a small built in shelf to the right of green buffet in your dining room. I have one in my kitchen; never know quite what to put on it. I think there was a rotary phone that sat on it in 1940 when house was built.

  • Lisa at

    Wow! Everything is so beautiful.
    Thanks for the eye candy.

  • Lindy at

    Once again, you have inspired me to get going on my fall decorating. I am loving every little detail of what you have done! Even the pasta salad is gorgeous. Any chance you can share the details of the recipe for that Apple Pie Sangria? And served in those copper mule mugs – perfection! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I found you on Pinterest and went crazy pinning all your amazing design & recipe ideas. Then it was even more awesome when I discovered you live in St Mary’s! My husband and I live in Burnham. A little town 30 miles east of State College. Small world! Your blog is inspring & a great reminder about the joy of doing what you love! Keep up the awesome work!

  • Mandi at

    Wow! Just found your blog on the tour! Awesome! Love the copper ! I am going to home goods to get those copper mule mugs, so great for fall! Can’t wait to see more of. Your posts!!

  • Cynthia at

    I so appreciate your vintage kitchen–love all the old-fashioned and charming touches that you kept in there. So tired of seeing everyone yearn for an older home and then immediately rip everything out that is of that time period. They all have to have granite countertops, new cabinets, neutral and white color schemes so that it all looks brand new and like nearly everyone else’s kitchen on blogs or decorating magazines. Adore the tiny pass through and colored backsplash and counters. Lovely, sweet vintage……fond memories of my mother’s exact same exhaust fan…..

  • Andy Shoffner at

    Love the fall decor- perfection with personal style and touches that make a house a HOME! In addition to saving 2 of your great fall entertaining recipes, I had to save the “Get Your Fat Pants Ready” picture- awesome!
