Fall Decorating Tips

Think about the smells and the sights of autumn…what do you smell? What do you see? Hmmmm… Do you see the vibrant, rich colors of the leaves, or the acorns hanging from a tree? What about seeing people picking apples and planting colorful mums? Can you smell the cinnamon and spiced cider? Smell the dryness of fallen leaves, or the rooms full of harvest candles burning.

As you have guessed, we gather a lot from nature. Autumn is a time of comfort. It’s a time to create a cozy spot by the fire; a time to look to nature for our decorating tips. Embrace the cool mornings and enjoy the sun-filled fall days ahead. Get out and see and smell what nature has to share!

Easy Fall Decorating Ideas

  • Bowls filled with apples or pears

  • Baskets overflowing with pumpkins and gourds

  • Vases arranged with branches of bright fall leaves/acorns

  • Mantels decorated with Bittersweet Vine

  • Groupings of spicy candles in nice fall hues

  • Corn stalks tied with Indian corn

  • An extra throw over your chair in rich, warm colors

  • New throw pillows in tones of red, pumpkin and gold

  • Spray outdoor plants with a mixture of 1t. rubbing alcohol, 1t. dish soap and water before bringing inside.

  • Add a propane heater to your deck and enjoy the crisp fall evenings

  • Place a potted mum inside a hollowed pumpkins on your front porch

 Fall is a beautiful time of the year to enjoy being outdoors. Grab a nice cup of mulled cider and take a break from your busy day to enjoy the season.
