Fall Decor

Fall is officially here!  We love the variety of rich colors that make this season so beautiful. There are many  new and creative ways to decorate for this wonderful season. We love these pinecone topiaries. The green pine needles in the base of each metal container bring a nice contrasting color to the piece.

Using gourds as flower vases is a great way to use a traditional fall piece in a unique way. The deep jewel tones of these flowers look lovely together and bringing purple into your fall decor brightens the arrangements. The sprig of berries adds texture to these soft flowers. Cut some of the gourds shorter than the others to add variety to the height of your arrangements.

This door decoration is adorable and very easy to make! Just take wooden letters from an arts and crafts store and paint them in oranges, greens, and yellows and hang them from your door using fun patterned ribbons. The pumpkin entryway pieces make a great statement. We love the addition of the family initial on the pot.

If you are looking for a simple way to accent other arrangements, these fall leaf votives are a great way to do it. Wrapping brightly colored fall leaves (real or artificial) around a candle votive with twine creates a festive accent to any table. For a more subtle fall accent, consider painting miniature pumpkins with gold metallic paint and use them as placecards at your next dinner party. These pumpkins can add a little sparkle to the rest of the table if you scatter them among other arrangements or group them together in the center of your table for a  more clean look.

Fall is a great season to spend time with your family. Instead of dealing with the mess of carving pumpkins this year, try decorating pumpkins with each family member’s name using paint or stick-on vinyl letters. Other designs can be added  to the pumpkins for a more personalized look.

White pumpkins are a fun new trend in fall decor. We love how they were used in this table centerpiece. The contrast between the red and gold berries and the white pumpkin  is beautiful and gives a bright clean look to a table. Using warm rich colored table cloths underneath the pumpkins makes them pop. These pumpkins would look great on a mantle or side table as well.

If you are looking for a fun way to bring flowers into your fall decor, we suggest this fun project. Glue fall colored flower heads to pumpkins.  You can create solid colored pumpkins, or have fun with striped patterns or polka-dots! Placing all of your decorated pumpkins together on a table creates a lovely arrangement.

For a clean classic look, we love this monogrammed pumpkin on a front porch. To re-create this beautiful look, paint a large pumpkin white and then add your family’s monogram. Place the pumpkin in a large pot and accent with berry vines to complete the look.
