Dressing Up Your Home For Fall – Cozy Blankets, Faux Pumpkins & Stems, and More!October 2nd, 2023 | by mdh | Posted in Decor and Trends
Fall is a wonderful season to celebrate the beauty of nature and the coziness of home. There are many ways to decorate your home in a tasteful and festive way for fall. Here are some of the ideas for you:
- Cozy up your living room with fall blankets and throws. Chunky blankets add great texture to your space but are also perfect to cozy up with in the chilly months. Try adding velvet throw pillows in shades of rust, crimson, and mustard. You can also add som faux fur rugs or throws for extra warmth and comfort.
- Set up a fall tableau on your foyer table with a mix of glass cloche containers, terra cotta pots, pumpkins, gourds, and candles. You can also add some fresh herbs or flowers for a touch of greenery. If you don’t want fresh, this is a great place to incorporate those faux stems.
- Add fall plants around your home. Add an autumn wreath to your front door. Try adding faux stems to your vases and pots around your home – they are worth the investment as you can use them year after year.
- Pumpkins! Think outside the box on the typical “carved pumpkin” that lasts a few weeks before it looks rotten and old. Invest in faux pumpkins and gourds on your front porch and inside your home instead! Use varying sizes, colors, and textures. Don’t be afraid to pack your porch with pumpkins and gourds!
- Create a cornucopia with a mix of green tones, white, and flashes of fall color. You can use succulents, artichokes, pumpkins, and gourds to create a modern version of this classic symbol of abundance.
- Don’t forget the classic mums on the front porch. This is a great way to keep some life in your arrangement while still incorporating faux items as well.
- Decorate with apples by filling a large glass vase or bowl with a mix of red and green apples. You can also use apple slices to make garlands or wreaths for your walls or windows.
- Dress up your mantel with a display of white pumpkins, autumn foliage, and lanterns. You can also add some pinecones, acorns, or nuts for some natural texture.
- Make pumpkin votives by carving out mini pumpkins and placing tea lights inside. You can group them as a centerpiece or scatter them around your home for a warm glow.
- Build a tabletop topiary with fresh produce from your refrigerator or farmer’s market. You can use pumpkins, artichokes, herbs, and apples to create a fragrant and colorful display for your kitchen or dining room.
- Use candles and candlesticks in your decor! They provide a warmth around your home and create a beautiful ambiance.
