The pumpkin soup bowls have become a bit of an obsession. We have a few sets. Not only are they decorative, but they are also perfect vessels for hearty soups. And, we LOVE soup!
Here are our top 10 fall decorating tips:
Mums are a must. Baskets, vases, and crockery are all great vessels for your mum selection
Adorn your breakfast table with a fall-inspired flower arrangement (sunflowers, mums, and natural foliage)
You can add some decorative plates in fall colors on plate stands
Silk leaves or natural leaves can be scattered to look like they just fell from a nearby tree
Add pumpkins in various colors. Decorate your front porch, powder room, breakfast table, and patio
Fall napkins and table linens help to tie everything together. We have a nice collection of rich colored napkins and a variety of napkin rings to rotate throughout the season
Yellow, green or natural colored dishware all complement the fall colors
Incorporate some wheat bundles, pinecones, and acorns
Decorate your patio table with fall linens, dishes, mums, mini pumpkins
We always add some candles for a nice glow
And, now we are already in “phase two” of our fall decor.
In our new look, we used a combination of magnolia leaves, pinecones, and acorns. A peek at this transformation is in the featured photo on this post. In our post later this week we will show you the total project as we prepare for Thanksgiving.
Trust me, you do not have to pay “luxe” prices to get a “luxe” look when decorating for the season. There are small touches of fall throughout our house that did not bust the bank. And, it really is fun to change up your decor to match the season.
Usually, we start to transform our home for fall in late September or the beginning of October. It remains like this until a little before Thanksgiving. A few “thankful” decorating items are added to give a new look for the Thanksgiving holiday.
This year, I promised myself that I would not buy a lot of new items. Instead, I repurposed and used items we already had to create a new and fresh look. Also, if you are able to, use items from your yard for a natural look. Branches, leaves, pinecones, acorns, greenery or magnolia leaves are all great additions to your decor.
What are your favorite fall decorating tips? We would love to hear from you.
