Celebrate Autumn: Elegant Ideas for Fall Decorating

With summer coming to an end, it’s time to celebrate autumn. With a burst of color and natural elements for inspiration, it’s easy to give your home a makeover with elegant fall decor. Bring out the classy side of the season with these fall table décor and decorating ideas.

Say “Happy Autumn” at the Front Door

Welcome family and guests at the front door with a fall wreath. For one-of-a-kind style, make or buy a wreath made from rustic materials like green moss, lavender, fresh eucalyptus, or dried cotton pods. Create a festive arrangement on your front porch with hay bales, pumpkins, gourds, and galvanized metal milk jugs stuffed with sunflowers and corn stalks. In the evening, generate a warm glow at your entryway with amber-colored string lights. 

Wall Decor That Wows

Your walls offer the perfect canvas for colorful autumn decor. To make a wow statement in a child’s room, fashion a tree out of washi tape, and add red, orange, and yellow felt leaves and a pretty birdhouse. Deck any wall in your home with rustic painted wood signs featuring seasonal sayings like “Give Thanks” and “Pumpkin Pie Fixes Everything.” 

Remember that wreaths don’t just belong on the front door. Fashion wreaths for your walls made from indoor-friendly elements like plaid fabric, colored felt, decorative wheat stalks, acorns, twigs, leaves, pinecones, and berries.

Craft a Beautiful Table

When it’s time for a dinner party, make guests feel extra-welcome with fancy fall table decor. For a blend of elegance and rusticity, place your best china on cut log rounds. Line a lace or linen table runner with a fresh herb garland, and top it with pine cones dipped in white paint. To create a stunning fall centerpiece, stuff a big hollowed-out pumpkin with fresh flowers, or stack a vintage cake stand with fall fruits and vegetables like purple cabbage, figs, apples, and pears. Turn place settings from ho-hum to fabulous by inserting pretty place cards into plump green pears or red apples. 

Nothing celebrates the change from summer to fall like colorful decor. Use these tips to welcome the arrival of fall in style.
