Fall Decor Tips!

Hi there

Everyone seems to love fall and especially the welcome change of pace the cooler weather brings along. Instead of just enjoying the outdoors, why not bring the outdoors in and decorate for the season–not just Halloween or Thanksgiving?

Here are some tips to get your home in perfect fall condition without making you fall into debt.

1. Shop cheap and classic–if you have to start from scratch and buy new accents for fall, go the traditional route. Start at your local craft store, like JoAnn or Hobby Lobby where things are already discounted. Then, look for things that don’t change from year to year. Try earth tones and natural materials that hold up well. One of the best purchases I ever made were these pumpkins made out of twigs–they were so cheap and have held up even better than expected!

2. Use what you have! You likely already have a lot of fall decor hiding around your house, and if you can’t find any inside, you definitely can outside. Try collecting acorns, pine cones and seasonal berries and bringing them inside. These items look great on tables in vases, apothecary jars or with flowers. Plus, they add great texture and color.

3. Shop local and often–check out your local farmer’s market for great deals on pumpkins, gords and flowers. They usually have the best assortment and the best prices to keep your house looking fresh.

4. Get Creative–see what you can do with your own two hands. Carve pumpkins, make a table runner and think outside the box with your ideas inside.

5. Don’t get crazy–the idea of decorating for fall can be daunting, but all it takes are a few simple accents. Start with your tables and work from there. If you still want more decor after decorating your tables then look to shelves and picture frames. Swap out your photos seasonally to really accent the time of year. Another great option is to swap out your pillows and blankets for nice, rich tones to pull everything together.

Simple ideas that make a big difference are what it’s all about. You can easily decorate for fall without spending a lot of money and won’t have to feel like you’re living in a haunted house or a cornucopia for the next few months. 🙂
