Autumn is upon us with its cool days and falling leaves. It’s time to celebrate the change of the season and the harvest. What better way than to add a touch of nature’s bounty throughout your home and garden. Below are some simple decorating ideas to celebrate the colorful autumn season.
What better way to add a touch of autumn splendor to your home than by hanging a festive fall wreath on your front door? This can be a simple straw wreath accented with an autumn themed ribbon, a purchased wreath of autumn silk florals, or a crafty creation all your own. The idea is to welcome visitors to your home with the spirit of the season.
Another simple way to decorate for the harvest is to incorporate pumpkins and gourds into your landscape and home. Toss out that basket of fruit or potpourri in favor of gourds in various shapes and colors. Replace withered annuals in the garden with pumpkins for a splash of harvest color. To bring a modern twist to these autumn decorations, grab a can of metallic spray paint and lightly coat your pumpkins and gourds.
Your yard holds a wealth of autumn décor essentials such as pine cones, dried twigs, and colorful leaves. Use them to your advantage in vases and bowls throughout your home. With a little practice you can make arrangements that look like designer showpieces. If your yard falls short on materials, purchase a few silk arrangements and place them in the rooms where you want a touch of autumn front and center.
Last, but not least, take a trip to the discount store. Purchase plates, napkins, and tablecloths in bright harvest colors. For less than twenty dollars, your table can become an autumn showpiece.
The glory of autumn is upon us and following these tips will easily bring the colorful season into your home and garden with minimal effort or expense.
