Embrace the vivid and bountiful season by bringing fall into your home with these crisp fall décor ideas.
1. Fallen leaves
When the leaves start falling down, start collecting them. Make it a family project by having your kids create their own leaf garlands, table place settings and other fun leaf crafts! This can also make for a good Thanksgiving activity if you need to keep the kids busy while cooking.
2. Autumn wreath
An autumn wreath on the front door symbolizes the welcoming of fall. You can purchase one or make your own customized version. An autumn wreath could include leaves, corn husk, red or green apples, dried wheat sheaves and burlap twine. For more autumn wreath inspiration, visit Pinterest.
3. Pumpkin centrepieces
Impress dinner guests with a pumpkin table centrepiece. You can choose between the classic orange pumpkin, a white pumpkin or paint it a different colour to mix things up. Wrap the pumpkin in a berry stem to add some fall flair or use the pumpkin as a vase and arrange colourful flowers such as chrysanthemums, carnations, sunflowers and peonies inside.
4. Harvest season
Set up a harvest display on your front porch or yard. You can include a variety of items such as large corn stalks, hay squares, wooden baskets of fall flowers and pumpkins, candle lanterns, gourds, squash, and even a few scarecrows. Get crafty and have fun with your autumnal arrangement!
5. Fall hues
Add splashes of red, orange and golden hues to your décor with tablecloths, lamps, ottomans and area rugs. Bring warmth into your home with plenty of throw pillows and blankets for extra coziness and comfort. Light a few fall candles with pumpkin or cinnamon scents for extra autumn effect.
