Fall Decorating Ideas



Change of Seasons

I love when the seasons change from summer to fall. When the leaves go from bright greens and yellows to warm golds and shades of orange.  Fall also marks the unofficial start to the Holiday season, we open our homes up to family and friends for the next couple of months.  It is easy to incorporate the warm cozy feeling of the season into your home by decorating using cues from nature.







Here are some easy ways to get your table ready for the start of the Holiday Season:

Bring the outdoors in- A cheap way to decorate for the season is to bring nature indoors. Fall offers a variety of objects that can be used in centerpieces. In the picture we see dried leaves used in hurricane vases to add a bit of the season. Be sure that whatever you use in your decorating is thoroughly cleaned. Also note that in the picture they have used a candle in a glass vase inside the hurricane vase. This will help prevent the open flame from coming in contact with the dried leaves.

Flowers- You can’t go wrong with flowers when decorating your table. In the above picture, the colors of the season are represented in a small bouquet and paired with twine and pine cones. It is a rustic yet beautiful addition to any fall table. In addition to flowers, you can use twigs and decorative sticks to spruce up any centerpiece.

Pumpkins- One of the most iconic symbols of fall is the pumpkin. While it is traditional to use orange pumpkins to create jack lanterns and decorate your porches, you can also bring pumpkins inside to create interesting centerpieces and visually stunning floral arrangements. If you don’t like the traditional orange pumpkins, they do come naturally in white or you can paint them any variety of colors from gold to even chalkboard. In the picture on the right, we see a stunning arrangement created with a “pumpkin vase."  In this example, the pumpkin is not hollowed out in order to add the flowers; instead they add floral foam on top using the stem to anchor it in place. This will allow your “vase” to last longer. For complete instruction follow the link- https://homeiswheretheboatis.net/2015/10/12/at-the-table-pfaltzgraff-painted-poppies-and-a-blooming-pumpkin/

Color Me Coastal

Inspired by the ocean, coastal style evokes a light and breezy feel. Coastal style blurs the lines between indoors and out. Plenty of light, light colors, pale neutrals and natural materials. Although it is tempting to grab every beach themed item out there, go with more simple pieces that evoke the feel of the beach without hitting people over the head.
