The leaves are changing, the weather has cooled and the sun is setting a little earlier every night. The time has finally come for donning your warmest, coziest sweater and cuddling up by the fire with a hot cup of cider. Although you may be sad to see the summer end, and unprepared for the winter chill, autumn is a time of year almost everyone can appreciate – and what better way to express your love for fall than with some festive and simple fall décor.
Everyone loves leaves and pumpkins, but why not go for something a little different? Choose a bouquet of orange, gold and red flowers (real or silk) and place them in a vase of your choice. You could also fasten them into a door wreath or arrange them around the base of a candle – the options are endless!
Have a few cool weather friendly plants you’ve been dying to display? Give them an extra fall-esque touch with a bright orange pumpkin. Carve out a few gourds and place a small potted plant within. Seat the pumpkin planters on your front steps for a bright touch.
Few other items signify harvest season quite like a basket of delicious apples. Arrange multi-colored apples into a basket or bowl as a centerpiece, or place them on the mantle. A cored apple can also make for an adorable tea light holder that will make your home smell light fresh-baked apple pie.
Bring Nature Indoors
One inexpensive and easy way to give your home a seasonal touch is by collecting fall items and displaying them in small arrangements around your home. For example, a few sticks of cinnamon, dried berries, leaves and sprigs of sage in a glass dish can make for a fragrant and beautifully colored potpourri. After all, who doesn’t love the smell of autumn?
