Autumn is easily many people’s favorite time of year. The leaves change colors, the air gets crisp and everything pumpkin flavored comes out. Here are some ideas on how to bring the feeling of fall into the home.
What fresh flowers are to spring and summer, wheat stalks and pumpkins are to fall. Replace that vase of flowers in the bathroom with pumpkins and gourds. There are tutorials online about how to preserve them for decorating purposes. Painting them can be a fun craft idea and gives them an added visual appeal. Or put some wheat stalks in a flower vase for a simpler touch of fall.
For the kitchen, paint the pumpkins and gourds before placing them on a tea or cake stand on the counter or table.
Candles, a staple in many bathrooms, should be switched out with the seasons. There are numerous autumn scents to choose from, such as apple cider, pumpkin, candy corn, cranberry, cinnamon and more. Make a decorative piece with them to put on a cute tray in the bathroom. Try putting one in a vase surrounded by acorns or candy corn.
In both the kitchen and bathroom, change out the towels to autumn colors. Oranges, browns and burgundies are good choices.
Buy or make fall themed place mats and a table runner for when having guests over. It’s a simple way to add a touch of fall without unnecessarily taking up room with big decorations.
There are many options when it comes to decorating for fall. Just think warm and cozy!
