Our Favorite Fall Decorating Ideas

Fall is a season filled with apple-picking, tailgating, and the beloved pumpkin spice. 

Bring the fall excitement into your space with these quick and easy fall decor tips!

Welcome Guests Abundantly

Fall = guests, family and get-togethers. Get your front porch ready for fall festivities with a pair of planters surrounded by an abundance of mums and real or faux pumpkins and gourds. Mix in a few lanterns to add a welcoming glow to evening gatherings.

Cue the Copper

Copper has continued to grow in popularity, making the glowing material the metal of the moment. Handcrafted of solid copper, this pretty pail turns fresh-cut flowers or a bunch of branches into an eye-catching arrangement. Occasionally polish the copper to maintain its new-penny shine or allow the metal to take on a rich, verdigris patina over time. Learn how to craft your own rustic, hand-lettered tray, below.

Set the Table With Seasonal Style

Turn every day into a holiday by decking out the dining room in fall's favorite hues. For a can't-miss combo, pair warm shades of orange, red and yellow with muted greens and copper and gold metallic accents.

 

Warm Things Up Indoors

Take a cue from designer Sarah Richardson and give an open, soaring space (even one as massive as her living room) a snug, welcoming feel by swapping out pillows in lightweight summer fabrics, like linen and cotton, for luxe velvet ones in rich, fall shades. Add a few coordinating throws and get ready to cozy up by the fire.

And, Make It Toasty Outdoors

Crisp fall weather + hot cocoa or coffee = a match made in outdoor entertaining heaven. Stock the bar with an assortment of flavorings and toppings so fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving guests can help themselves to a barista-quality fresh brew.

Get Crafty With Dollar Store Finds

Yep! What looks like high-end gold lanterns is actually just dollar store frames glued together to create an open box. To create a sturdy base, cut a piece of scrap wood to size, then glue onto the open framework. Fill with candles and fall greenery, moss or acorns to beautifully light up the night.
