Oranges, yellows, reds, and everything pumpkin is right around the corner. Is your home ready for the season? With all of the beautiful colors in nature right now, it’s a perfect time to bring some of those natural elements into your home. Here are my favorite tips for getting your home fall ready.
- Sugar pumpkins and gourds– These fall fruits make great table decorations or accents on the mantel. Sugar pumpkins are the little ones that can be cute on their own, or look elegant painted white. You can pick some up at a local farmer’s market, or just stop by the farm itself! Adding a few candles in with your arrangement will make it look soft and seasonal.
- Leaves all around- Colorful leaves can add some spice to a room when sitting in a bowl, candle holder, or just spread out on the table. Real leaves will dry out and crumble easily, so for a cleaner and longer lasting look, try silk leaves from a craft store.
- Berries- Natural berries (with or without the branch included) work almost like baby’s breath in a fall arrangement; they add a pop of color and a new texture. Berries can be bought at a craft store to add to a vase or tablescape, or pick them up from your favorite farmer’s market.
- Raw wood- Raw, unpolished wood gives homes a rustic, fall feel. It can be hung on the walls, used as part of a centerpiece, or even incorporated into a custom piece of furniture. Drift wood works well to achieve the rustic look, but cleaned wood from a craft store will be less messy and won’t carry any extra critters.
