Fall in the Northwoods
Welcome to my lakeside log cabin home in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
The Northwoods is such a beautiful place all throughout the year.
It’s what makes the area such a popular tourist spot.
The beautiful Summers, Winters with snow flocked trees and several feet of powder, and Fall with Hallmark movie color.
And all of it by the lake.
Autumn by the Lake
Our area is full of lakes
Almost everyone I know lives on a lake here and it makes for a special way of life.
After a Summer of boating, swimming and fishing our forest lined waters begin to show their Autumn colors.
One of the big decisions is when to take the boats and dock out of the water.
We want to wait as long as possible.
There may still be some beautiful days to sit out on the dock and read or an evening to enjoy a glass of wine.
Homecoming photos look amazing out over the water too.
But we want to get everything out before it gets cold and the lake freezes.
Our Cabin in Fall
From Memorial Day to Labor Day I love decorating with red, whites and blues.
Give me all the Americana.
Then in the Fall I follow the inspiration of what surrounds me.
In the woods.
As the trees change color so does my decor.
My front door wreath is usually the first shift. Here
Here are some beautiful Fall wreaths to shop right from this post:
I also love adding quick and easy decor that includes natural elements.
So in Fall that includes lots of pumpkins and guards.
Here’s my post about 3 FALL CENTERPIECES IN VINTAGE TOTES to see more ideas.
Mixing those natural elements with antique and vintage pieces that give a nod to the lake and Northwoods is my style.
Some green oars, a vintage travel poster and some shocks of wheat grace the mantel.
Fall Fun Lakeside
In the Northwoods we not only love how beautiful this time of the year is, but we love to still enjoy nature and the lake no matter the time of year.
An Autumn picnic down by the lake is a fun way to take in the color.
Kayaking is still fun and a great way to enjoy being on the water longer.
Lake themed items add great layers to gatherings like this antique paddle.
It looks so pretty with the pops of copper and vintage finds like my picnic tin holding a mum and camp blanket as a tablecloth.
The vintage ducks I tuck around are another lakeside touch for Fall.
Thanks so much for joining me at Camp Paradise! Next up you are heading to my friend Libbie’s at A Life Unfolding for her beautiful Fall at the Cottage tour.
