Fall is in the air and soon you’ll be enjoying beautiful foliage, cooler weather, apple cider, and pumpkin spice everything. Ask around and chances are your friends and family will identify fall as their favorite season, and for good reason!
Beautiful colors, football, cozy weather, and plenty of fall-themed activities make this season an enjoyable one. Bring the outside in and make your home an autumn haven with warm colors, cozy blankets and pillows, and fall-themed candles.
Here are 7 fall decorating ideas sure to make your home warm and inviting this season.
1. Warm Colored Throws and Pillows
Put away the summer colors and pastels and get out the red, orange, mustard yellow, and dark green throw blankets and pillows. Throw pillows and blankets are a quick and easy way to quickly update your space for fall.
You don’t even need to buy new pillows—invest in some zippered pillow covers and change them out easily without breaking the bank.
2. Fall Candles
Nothing screams fall as much as pumpkin, apple, and cranberry scented candles. You don’t even need candles to make your home smell amazing. You can opt for a simmer pot of fall ingredients.
Use your slow cooker to simmer water with fall ingredients, such as cranberries, cinnamon sticks, apple peels, orange peels, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, or apple cider.
3. Fall Wreaths
You can buy fall wreaths at any home or craft store, but why not make your own? You don’t need to break the bank to make a colorful and seasonal wreath.
A grapevine or straw wreath can easily be transformed into a professional-looking wreath with fall flowers, faux pumpkins, or leaves. Many of these things can be found at dollar stores, making this an easy and affordable project.
4. Autumn Flowers
Dahlias, ranunculus, and even mini-carnations are gorgeous and hearty fall flowers that can be styled in a rustic or fall-colored vase. You can even add some branches or other trimmings from your yard to really dress it up.
5. Tablecloths and Runners
A fall-themed tablecloth or runner is a cute way to decorate without taking up much space and will make your place feel festive and put together.
6. Fall Centerpiece
Think candles, fall-colored flowers, and branches and faux leaves. You can easily arrange these items on a tray, in a rustic box, or in a glass hurricane to dress up your kitchen table.
Remember to choose unscented candles for your kitchen, so they don’t overpower the delicious smells from your simmer pot or your dinner!
7. Fall-Themed Front Porch
Even if you don’t have a true porch, you can dress up your entryway with a few pumpkins or gourds, potted mums, and a fall wreath. Make your apartment warm and inviting to you and your guests.
