4 Festive Autumn Home Decor Tips

4 Festive Autumn Home Decor Tips
  • Opening Intro -

    The first cool mornings of late summer are a strong indicator of what is to come: autumn and the riot of fall foliage, pumpkins, gourds and Halloween celebrants that mark the season.


Chances are you have been thinking about autumn decor and what seasonal decorations should grace your home. We’ll add a few ideas of our own including tips from some of the experts.

1. Fall Centerpiece — Martha Stewart calls it “an easy fall centerpiece,”; and if there is someone whose words you should take to heart, then it is hers. Visit a craft store or rummage through your stock of party items and pull out that pumpkin vase you’ve used in the past. Fill it will colorful fall flowers — mums, helenium and sunflower, and place gourds around it. Orange and yellow votive candles can also be added, to provide a festive look.

2. Autumn Leaves — You’ll be sending most of your fall leaves to the landfill or perhaps using them to fill your compost pile. You can also pull out a handful of brightly colored ones. Dip these in wax and keep them throughout the fall months. You might also consider using glycerin to get a texture similar to silk flowers. Use these as decorations on tables, book stands or wherever.

3. Hay and Mums — Your outside decor will likely include an assortment of jack o’lanterns, a scarecrow and some fright art. It might just as easily include hay bales and mums; fall decor that can be stacked side by side or on top of each other. Place your decor in a covered area to prevent getting sopped by a rain storm and surround your hay display with four or five mum plants in a variety of colors. Increase the festive look by placing a chair or a rocker nearby with a scarecrow or fright character sitting in it. Indian corn, pumpkins and gourds might also be included.

4. On the Mantel — Back inside of your home, you have this beautiful fireplace mantel that gets decorated for Christmas, but holds personal artifacts for the rest of the year. It is the ideal place to put up a fall display. One that includes pumpkins, gourds, silk flowers and even small pieces of hay, provided that allergies are not a problem. Add a variety of gourd sizes and shapes and place candles between your decorations. Add in fall-themed ribbons and plants as you see fit.

Autumn Interlude

For some, the fall season provides an interlude between the hazy, lazy days of summer and Christmas. It is really more than that: a time to reset the pace for the school year, enjoy football games and find our decorative flair. Mix and max your decorations too, by adding in dried fruit such as apples or including acorns, filling these up in a clear canister and putting them on display.
