Hello Fall!

The arrival of fall brings a slight (and welcomed) chill to the air, bright colored leaves and pumpkin spice everything. With the change of season, it may be time to redecorate and spruce up your home to something a little cozier and festive. Does this seem like a daunting task? Don’t stress! We listed a few suggestions below to help bring the fall spirit to your home without spending too much money or time. We hope these ideas spark some creativity for you - Happy fall decorating!

-Boost your homes curb appeal by filling window boxes and gardens with English Ivy, pansies and ornamental cabbages. These seasonal colored flowers not only to bring the fall spirit to the front of your home, but also can withstand the cold winter temperatures, ensuring natural beauty well into the beginning of Spring.

-Integrate autumn tones throughout your home by using festive throw pillows and blankets, as well as woodsy centerpieces, gourds and layered fall toned tablecloths.

-Freshen up the porch and front door by piling pumpkins (small and large), corn husks and potted croton/ mums all around, and hanging festive wreaths on the front door to give the area a welcoming feel for holiday guests. If you are on a budget, you may want to try making your own wreathes! Click here to learn how to make your own mini pumpkin wreath, or here for your own ribbon rose wreath.

-Firewood doesn’t just have to be functional. Give your fireplace a cozy, woodsy charm by adding real firewood to your fireplace as decor. (Before you bring the firewood inside, don’t forget to clean it off and trim and twigs or leaves that are still attached).

-Create a warm, welcoming and cozy outdoor backyard space by including festive pillows and throws around a fire pit. This is the perfect setting to enjoy family and friends, and maybe roast some marshmallows for a warm, sweet snack. (Side Tip: keep a larger basket close by to make it easy to bring all throws inside if bad weather arrives).

-Pillar candles and lanterns are a great way to bring an extra dose of coziness and welcoming scents into your home. If using pillars, incorporate fall décor such as coffee beans, candy corn or acorns around the base. (Be sure to keep an eye on any burning flame so it does not become a hazard).
