Fall Decorating Ideas

There are so many ways to decorate your home in a tasteful and festive way for fall. Pumpkins, gourds, fall foliage, and pinecones are a handful of popular themes that can serve as inspiration.

You can mix all of these elements together across your mantle or you can stagger them artfully down your front steps. You can make a fall wreath out of miniature pumpkins. We also love a garland made from oversized pinecones that incorporates fresh magnolia or greenery.

When decorating for fall, it is best to get the most bang for your buck and pick one look that will carry you through the Thanksgiving and Halloween season. So, go ahead and bring the fall colors into your home with these simple decorating projects.

Add a seasonal wreath to the front door. This one incorporates white pumpkins, which are a favorite for the fall season. If you're up for a quick DIY project, we suggest a 25-minute wreath that starts with a store-bought grapevine wreath.

Decorate a seasonally-inspired table to make your home feel fall-ready. Your foyer is a great place to start with a simple tablescape. We especially love the use of glass cloche containers and terra cotta pots for a touch of garden flair.

A smart mix of green tones, white, and flashes of fall color make this centerpiece feel like a fresh, modern cornucopia. Make this centerpiece your own by adding succulents, fresh veggies, or any other decor that feels right. Anything goes!

The key to arranging leaves is to group them by size and color. Yes, much like you would arrange flowers. Fiery red maple makes a beautiful focal point when countered with the feathery foliage of dawn redwood laden with globes of gray-green fruit on the fringes.

There's a reason you see mums each fall—they work. Once buds begin to open, you're guaranteed blooms whether your display is in sun or shade. To prolong the show, water when dry and remove spent flowers. Pair with Mexican sage and boxwoods to recreate this stunning display.
